13 Going on 30

FOR SOME, 13 FEELS LIKE IT WAS JUST YESTERDAY. FOR JENNA, IT WAS.

Jennifer Garner took the leap from TV and Alias to the big screen, playing a hip 30-year-old magazine editor who wakes up one day and has become who she was at the age of 13. Ever seen that one before? Yeah, this is Big (1988) for a new generation of moviegoers; it’s a charming and very slight little comedy that relies heavily on 1980s nostalgia. The part where the mind of a 13-year-old figures out how to revitalize a magazine is hard to believe in, but the actors are likeable; Garner is quite funny and Mark Ruffalo is good as her childhood buddy, now a photographer. 

2004-U.S. 97 min. Color. Directed by Gary Winick. Cast: Jennifer Garner (Jenna Rink), Mark Ruffalo (Matt Flamhaff), Judy Greer (Lucy Wyman), Christa B. Allen, Andy Serkis, Kathy Baker… Brie Larson.

Trivia: Gwyneth Paltrow and Renée Zellweger were allegedly considered for the lead role.
