17 AGAIN (2009) Graphice Review

REVIEW
17 Again? Only in a fantasy!

Living in the moment is the only way to live! Yesterday has past and tomorrow is never guaranteed. Today is all we have. “Behold,” the Apostle of old once said, “Now is the day of salvation.”

There is no better time to begin your new life than right now –today! Come alive in the moment and be thankful for it. And this is the message of the film.

SYNOPSIS
What would you do if you got a second shot at life? Class of 1989, Mike O'Donnell is a star on his high school basketball court with a college scout in the stands and a bright future in his grasp. But instead, he decides to throw it all away to share his life with his girlfriend Scarlett and the baby he just learned they are expecting. Almost 20 years later, Mike's glory days are decidedly behind him. His marriage to Scarlett has fallen apart, he has been passed over for a promotion at work, his teenage kids think he is a loser, and he has been reduced to crashing with his high school nerd-turned-techno-billionaire best friend Ned. But Mike is given another chance when he is miraculously transformed back to the age of 17. Unfortunately, Mike may look 17 again, but his thirty-something outlook is totally uncool in the class of 2009. And in trying to recapture his best years, Mike could lose the best things that ever happened to him.
