Jenna makes a wish on her 13th birthday to be 30 and grown up. When she wakes up the next day she finds herself, miraculously, just weeks away from her 30th birthday. The new, older Jenna is a successful magazine editor with friends in high places and a lion's share of potential suitors. The problem is that her mind hasn't matured with her body and Jenna finds it a little more terrifying than cool to be living on her own.

Jenna wants to be 30 instead of 13. Be careful, wishes sometimes come true! This adorable rom-com stars Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo and cannot go wrong in any way. I watch this one over and over, laughing at the same parts every time. It's cute, it's charming, it's moving, and it's one of Jennifer's best flicks ever.

A cute, light romantic-comedy about a 13-year-old girl who wishes herself into her life as a "flirty and thriving" 30-year-old, only to find out that maybe it's not everything she imagined it would be--along the lines of "Big," but slightly less serious. I enjoyed the moral of the story, and found it to be more moving than I expected, without ever feeling heavy.

You can watch this female version of Big at multiple levels of engagement, including just enjoying the two principals, who are reliable and attractive, as always. You can also indulge in the "what if" fantasy we all have--what if I had made other decisions with my life instead of what I did? Fortunately for Jenna, she was able to walk back poor choices with the help of some magic wishing dust (just go with it) and end up with the desired fairy-tale outcome.

I love Jennifer Garner in this movie. It's the perfect chick-flick.

Besides the constant sexual content and talk, it was a cute and romantic movie.

Hi, I was wondering if this movie, has anything inappropriate in it...because I wish to watch it, but defiantly don't want anything inappropriate. Thanks!

This is a wonderful, cute movie for most of the family. Lighthearted with a nice ending.

Jenny: something strange is happening! I slept in a apartment I've never seen before, and there was a naked man in my shower, and I..well I..i saw his thingy! Lucy: *sarcastic* oh god. not his thingy.

Jenna: Wait, listen to me. I'm 13!
Lucy: Jenna, if you're gonna start lying about your age, I'd go with 27.
