17 Again (DVD)
I wish Matthew Perry would start getting more roles. He’s probably my favorite actor out of the Friends cast and I was happy to see him star in 17 Again. Yeah I know Zac Efron is really the main star here, but Perry had an important role too playing the elder Mike O'Donnell. I didn’t expect much going into this film, other than a slapstick comedy. But it was the universal theme of a guy that’s unhappy with his life and at risk of losing his family that got me. I really liked the humor in this film and think this is the one to break Zac Efron out of High School Musical limbo. Expect to see more of him in the near future. Overall, this was an enjoyable film that a lot of people facing a family crisis can relate to, and laugh along the way.
