The story’s about Mike O’Donnell, promising basketball star, who chose the love of his life over basketballs… and comes to regret it 20 years later. He’s in the midst of finalizing the divorce and his job is going nowhere. An unexplainable twist of events happens and he’s back as his 17-year-old self and he thinks he has a chance to do it right, all over again. But his friend, Ned, is right. High school isn’t exactly the best place to relive one’s memories if his head had been stuck in the toilet bowl (that’s Ned). However, Mike thinks he can salvage the situation in his 17-year-old self.
Needless to say, there was squeals all over when Zac Efron appeared on-screen, and he gets topless a couple of times. The background love story between Mike and his wife, Scarlet, is so sweet! Ned also gets his own shot at love unexpectedly while acting as Mike’s dad. The LOTR link is really odd because who really learns how to speak Elf? One more thing, Ned has lightsabres – that make that buzzing sound everytime it clashes with another lightsabre? COOL!
