Not another teen movie? 17 Again features High School Musical heartthrob Zac Efron as a younger version of Matthew Perry in what Variety is calling "a tale of fatherly redemption in teen-comedy drag." The film is peppered with "credibility-stretching coincidences" and a lackluster Perry doesn't exactly work as Efron's older self, according to the review. Leslie Mann, however, shines in a "thankless second-banana role" as Efron/Perry's wife. Efron, the "parent-approved sex symbol," is sure to please the teenage ladies in multiple shirtless basketball scenes. The movie premieres today in the UK and opens next Friday in the U.S.
