13 Going On 30
For some, 13 feels like it was just yesterday. For Jenna, it was.
After total humiliation at her thirteenth birthday party, Jenna Rink wants to just hide until she's thirty. Thanks to some wishing dust, Jenna's prayer has been answered. With a knockout body, a dream apartment, a fabulous wardrobe, an athlete boyfriend, a dream job, and superstar friends, this can't be a better life. Unfortunetly, Jenna realizes that this is not what she wanted. The only one that she needs is her childhood best friend, Matt, a boy that she thought destroyed her party. But when she finds him, he's a grown up, and not the same person that she knew.
I am a guy. A bloke, chap, lad, dad, testosterone driven being.
I argue when I'm right, argue fiercer when I'm wrong and am never discouraged by the fact that I'm wrong 95% of the time.
I love football, beer, loud music, making fire and stuff that goes boom.
I am getting less hair where I want more and getting more hair where I want less. My testosterone makes me overcompensate by working out too much and acting like a juvenile git.
I am a guy.
And I unequivocally love this film and will defend it to death because I am right.
Review In A Nutshell:
Everyone has those set of films that they have encountered in their youth that stick with them in a positive light even after one has grown so much in emotional and physical maturity. 13 Going on 30, better titled in Australia as Suddenly 30, was a film that I encountered nearly on a daily basis during my days in primary school as my young sister was mesmerized by it, finding an amazing role model to cling onto, hoping that when she becomes older she would also find success in the realm of fashion and still retain that sense of innocence and virtue. I latched onto these films for different reasons; I found myself heavily attracted to…
Snow has closed my main source (my local library) for new movies. So I have had to look hard at my DVD collection trying to find new meat. Tonight I found one of my teenage daughter's favorite movies, 13 going on 30. The female version of Tom Hanks' Big. Cute movie...I recommend to teenagers.....middle aged men might not think too highly of it. Highlight of the movie...Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk) dancing to Michael Jackson's Thriller...and Jim Gaffigan showing up as a New York cabbie.
The Hulk and Gollum dance to Thriller together, need I say more?

13 Going On 30 is a tear-wrencher of the very most cruel kind - has me saying 'aaaaw' once too many. Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo are just too cute. I know it's not a perfect movie or anything - but it goes all the right places, and that's enough.
Also, a hint of the 80's is never a bad thing in my book.
rewatched w my bestie
Thirty, flirty and thriving!
Wanting to purge my dvd collection a bit, I've decided to rewatch a few film in the hope of getting rid of some of them. I really thought that 13 going on 30 would be going but I found it quite charming, the premise original and Jennifer Gardner & Mark Ruffalo turns in really compelling performances. The movie has heart and its intentions in the right place. I might just be keeping it...
I'm going to be totally honest, I had no intention of liking this as much as I did, but when a movie is this sweet and charming, I can't help it. Plus with Ruffalo and Garner being unfathomably adorable, I definitely can't help it. It'd be easy to put on the cynic act with this one, but I don't want to.
Nostaglic love came back so I had to watch it! <3 (had one of the best soundtracks ever imo)
Fun and cute :)
GREAT. A CLASSIC. Great movie, a classic chick movie, not over done yet very funny and sweet.
Straight up awful
A list with film titles that could easily have been titles of porn movies.
Got any more?
