First Review!!!  
17 Again sees him playing the character of Mike O’Donnell at age 17, but we are first introduced to his character at age 40+. Matthew Perry plays the character in his older state and battling a divorce with his wife and strained relationships with his two children, he finds himself mysteriously cast back to his senior year at school. What follows is a hilarious romp where Mike must right some of his earlier wrongs whilst patching the fragile relationships with his loved ones.

Although it may first appear as anything but original (think Freaky Friday and Suddenly 30) it is delivered in such a fresh manner that you quickly forget about the other incarnations. Zac is brilliant on screen, no doubt satisfying the millions of tweens that will go and see the film for him alone, but he also brings an astonishing maturity to his character who at heart, is far older than he appears. The film may initially appeal to kids, but I think it will rapidly find an audience with the parents who take their kids to see it. The relationship building between Zac and his kids/wife is so relatable and I’m sure kids of all ages will find something to love in this film, if nothing else than the nerd friend who happens to sleep in a bed shaped like Luke Skywalker’s land speeder.

OMG all these goodies!

The soundtrack listing is on amazon now, no artists listed though so I'm trying to figure that all out and put together a youtube playlist.

too much to post!

Oh, and I can confirm that there is a German premiere (I saw something on the cover of that teen magazine which says that the were able to "get" Zac to come... which is obviously crap as usual but it means that he will come to Germany) but I couldn't find out yet when and where/confirm that place and time.
