17 Again

So we went along to see Zac Efron take his top off 17 Again -Guys, they cut the bit from the advert out of the film! (Though the film does start with him playing basketball topless, which is nice.)

I personally loved it, He's a very good looking boy man and it's just a light-hearted, feel good film. Leslie Mann is great and Matthew Perry too, a fantastic cast, if you ask me. 
The most ridiculous part of the film is the fact that someone as beautiful as Zac Efron would grow up and turn into a chubby Matthew Perry! Sorry Chandler Bing, I love you but it's just not realistic.

The end credits has pics of them when they were at school, which for Zac was like...a year ago?! Everyone did go 'awwww' though! And he hasn't hung up his tap shoes just yet, they threw in a little dance routine at the beginning! 

After the film I began to wonder (yes I've been watching sex and the city again!)

Would I actually like to be 17 again...?

I could have told myself to not dye my hair and straighten it so much as it will never grow, to put the fake tan down! -Orange is never a good look!
 I could make sure I didn't bother with certain guys because there are much nicer guys out there. 
And make sure I knew that all the good friends are the one's that stick through all the bad stuf, and not to worry about the rest.

Though it would mean...
-Going through all those games with guys, do they like me? Why hasn't he replied?
-Drinking too much,
-Not sleeping enough.
-Going through heartbreak (that wasn't really heartbreak at all!)
-Hanging round with people I didn't even like.

I don't think I'd want to. Na, I'd prefer to stay as I am. And I wouldn't have met some of the amazing people that I know now!

Life is a lesson after all. 


  1. I couldn't do it. Not sleeping enough? It feels like I don't get enough sleep now! God knows how we used to do it- back when four hours sleep following a wild night and before a day at work seemed perfectly reasonable!

  2. haha! We sound so old! but it's true! I'd rather be us now than us then anyday!

  3. Also we could kind of get away with it at Epsom Photo. I don't think either of us could handle doing our jobs now hungover- we'd be too busy!

  4. I didn't like being seventeen much! But then I am only eighteen, it scares me that I'm nineteen this year, I have the mentality and sensibility of a teletubby!

  5. Haha! Emma, being 19 for me was the BEST! it all goes down hill after 20! :P

  6. Haha, alright, I'll hold my breath!

  7. Girls girls girls - believe me - it all goes downhill after 40!!! Enjoy it while you can :)
