Description

Comic fantasy starring Jennifer Garner as Jenna Rink, who at the start of the film is a typical awkward adolescent, constantly dreaming of being popular and accepted as part of the in-crowd at school. During her thirteenth birthday party, she finds herself sitting alone and humiliated in a dark closet after being rejected during a teenage kissing game - and fervently wishes that there might be some way to avoid the trials and tribulations of the teenage years that stretch so cruelly and inevitably ahead of her. When she emerges, she gets the surprise of her life: she's popular, beautiful, successful - and days away from her 30th birthday. The only problem is, her mind has not matured to match her new womanly body, career or love-life.

Synopsis
After Jenna Rink's 13th birthday party where her friend Lucy plays a cruel prank on her, she promptly makes a wish that she could skip adolescence and be 30. With the help of some wish dust given to her by her unpopular best friend Matty, her wish comes true. She wakes up to find that her 13-year-old self is now inhabiting the body--and life--of a 30-year-old, high-powered, New York magazine editor. Frightened by her new adult life, Jenna (Jennifer Garner) seeks the help of Matty (Mark Ruffalo), but he hasn't spoken to her since high school. Unfortunately, as she uncovers the details of the time she skipped, she learns that perhaps she hasn't made the best decisions.

Similar to the 1988 Tom Hanks vehicle BIG, 13 GOING ON 30 benefits from the undeniable appeal of Garner, who amusingly exudes the awkwardness and energy of a teenager. Meanwhile copious '80s pop culture references, an energetic soundtrack, and vibrant colors provide instant, foolproof nostalgia. Director Gary Winick (TADPOLE) has crafted an undeniably fun picture for any age or gender.

Movie Critics
Entertainment Weekly
"Move over, Julia Roberts. Jennifer Garner has a smile that's a big, lush, wide-screen dazzler....13 GOING ON 30 is the rare commercial comedy that leaves you entranced by what can happen only in the movies."
Owen Gleiberman (1 May 2004, p.138-9)
Los Angeles Times
"Garner has moxie to go with her jumping muscles. She also has expert support in her equally attractive costars Mark Ruffalo, as her former neighbor, and Judy Greer, as her current sidekick."
Manohla Dargis (23 Apr 2004, p.C1)
New York Times
"Any movie that telegraphs its fondness for its cast automatically has something going for it that is rare in contemporary comedy..."
Elvis Mitchell (23 Apr 2004, p.E13)
Rolling Stone
"[S]urprisingly smart and sharp..."
Peter Relic (23 Feb 2006, p.74)

"[I]t has a few shrewdly funny scenes....You'll chuckle..."
Chris Roberts (1 Sep 2004, p.128)
USA Today
"Talented at physical comedy, Garner has the all-elbows-and-knees feel of an adolescent and effectively conveys a goofy innocence."
Claudia Puig (7 May 2004, p.9E)
