A must watch movie for any teen, or perfect for girls night in.
Suprisingly good. I normally dont go for the typical 'teenager' movie but this was not what I expected. Zac Efron was perfectly believable. Give it a go even if your not normally into these kind of films as you may be pleasantly suprised. Loved the nerdy jokes (*wink wink* to all the Lord of the Rings fans). Good for all the family.
this movie is hilarious!! zac efron is surprisingly good at playing a father stuck in the body of a seventeen year old. perfect for tweens and teenage girls who are big fans of zac from high school musical. i recommend this movie to anyone who is a fan of zac efron or anyone who wants to just enjoy a good family, comedy movie.
