It seems that every time you turn around, there’s another Nicholas Sparks movie playing at the nearest multiplex. Some are good [The Notebook, The Last Song], some are appallingly bad [Nights in Rodanthe, Dear John] and some are just there. The Lucky One is one of the latter.

If you somehow had the chance, would you do your life over? Thirtysomething Mike O’Donnell (Matthew Perry) would. Then one mysteriously magical moment, Mike gets his chance. He’s suddenly back at Hayden High where he’s the star of the basketball team, a total hottie, and a classmate to his own teenage kids…which gives Mike (Zac Efron) a chance to go from not-so-good dad to really cool friend.
That’s the premise of this sort of teenage comedy movie which Warner Brothers Home Video is releasing on DVD, Blu_Ray, iTunes and On Demand starting this Tuesday, August 11th. 17 Again is a charming movie that takes it’s cues from forerunners such as Freaky Friday, 13 Going on 30 and with a touch of Back to Future thrown in for good measure.
