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.
BY FAR THE BEST CHICK FLICK IN EXISTENCE. I've seen 13 Going on 30 between 13 and 30 times and i love it every time. It's cute, clever, heartbreaking, smile-cracking, beautiful and full of laughter, sweetness, and love (plus Mark Ruffalo<3)
How does this get a reputation as one of the more "passable" chick flicks out there? While Jennifer Garner is undeniably cute at times, Mark Ruffalo is solid and Andy Serkis is rather hilarious everything else in this movie is a living, breathing cliche so much so that you could make a drinking game out of this, it's extremely hilarious for all the wrong reasons, Garner's character can be really annoying at times and when it's not unintentionally hilarious it's excruciatingly boring.
A lot more truthful than you'd think from looking at it (though I'm pretty sure this comprises most of my age cohorts who think a 'fun bright outlook' is all that it takes to score that big job in wherever and I hold this movie at least partly responsible).
That being said, I loved everything. I don't care if my ovaries are being cleverly manipulated. The dance scene alone! The soundtrack!
Couldn't relate to it on any personal level. No one from the popular crowd even pretended to like me as a joke and the weirdos wouldn't have me either. Because I was just that much cooler.
Uh, impassioned speeches about youth and hope! I'm out. I just can't make this out to be anything other than a fun movie to watch when you're feeling depressed (like in February when it's been raining for a solid month). But it's still great.
I realised sometime last year that I'm closer to 30 than to 13 and it's really messed me up because the first time I watched this I WAS 13
anyone that hates this movie has no soul
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Aw that was so cute, thanks god for the happy ending.
I watched this because of MJ, but there are Glee songs too, I'm amazed.
I love Mark and Jennifer is beautiful ^^
I. Love. This. Fucking. Movie. So. Much. Haha! Seriously, though. I know, I know... It's pretty much a (ripoff) female version of "Big", but... I don't care. It's amazing. It makes me laugh and cry and laugh again. Jennifer Garner is SO ADORABLE, and Mark Ruffalo is super foxy! They have wonderful chemistry together, and Judy Greer plays a fantastic bitch. I could watch this movie over and over again, and not get tired of it. It's one of my all time favorite "chick flix"/"rom-coms".
Sometimes your girlfriend makes you watch a chick flick, and sometimes it ends up being pretty funny.

Got any more?
