Sure, 17 Again looks an awful lot like Big in reverse (or one half of Freaky Friday), but you know what? The trailer looks really cute. Matthew Perry plays a down-on-his-luck dad who gets the chance to be 17 years old again (this is where Zac Efron comes in). So, he enrolls in his kids' high school and befriends them. He learns that his daughter is dating a nasty boy and tries to give her advice.
The whole cast is super charming, and I'm actually most impressed with Efron who does funny really well — but without trying too hard or making it awkward. 17 Again opens April 17 (nice date/title match-up there). To check out the trailer,
