13 year old Jenna Rink (Garner) always dreamed of becoming 30 and to be part of the "in" crowd at school. After a total embarrassment during a game on her birthday she wished using a magic dust to be 30. And when she woke up the next day, she was on a body of a 30 year old with her 13 year old mind. She got what she wished for, a knockout body, amazing superstar friends, a wonderful apartment with an extensive wardrobe. During the days of confusion and adjustment, she realized this is not what she truly wants... all she wants was to be with her childhood best friend, Matt.

But then something happened between the years she skipped 14-29..... Can she still bring back the life and best friend she wants?

I enjoyed the film, it's a mixture of magic and love and the modern world. It's light and charming, entertaining and quite unique. It's a girly film that tried to go a little deep and you'd discover the wonders of family and friends at the present moment. :)
