Review aggregation website gives the film a rating of 56%, based on 145 reviews, with an average rating of 5. Almost 20 years later, Mike's Matthew Perry glory days are behind him. Is it easier to hear those messages from Zac Efron than from parents? Why Matthew Perry was cast as his adult self is hard to figure; does your head change its shape in 20 years? When Zac Efron took off his T-shirt, the four in front of me squealed as if there were buzzers in their seats. There's a scene of teens drinking at a party and a fair number of sexual references. But at what's supposed to be his big game where a college scout is checking him out, Scarlet reveals that she's pregnant.

The janitor is quite a convenience, supplying vortexes when needed. Unfortunately, Mike may look 17 again, but his thirtysomething outlook is totally uncool among the class of 2009. Face it: We've seen this movie before. If only Mike could go back to 17 and not make all the same mistakes. During a high school basketball game, Mike reveals himself to Scarlet. He's game, too, giving himself over to scenes that could have played tepidly and awkwardly -- Mike the teenager fending off the advances of his own daughter, who's not aware he's her dad, for example -- but generally don't.
