Comments on: "13 going on 30 (movie)" (8)

  1. 12 year old Jenna has one and only wish. She hated being the dorkiest girl in the school, and in her favourite magazine, she read that being 30 is ‘the age’. When her birthday comes flying around the corner, three cheers, and 13 candles blown out is the traditional way for a wish to come true. For Jenna, it was fairy dust. She was swept 17 years into the future, where Jenna had to lean how to hold down a job, boyfriend, social life and everything else that comes paged with being an adult. Jenna soon finds out that being 30 isn’t so great when you have missed the past 17 years of your life.

    I would recommend this hilarious movie to everyone 11 and over. This movie is available on Netflix, and I would rate it 9/10. A great, rainy-day movie for all families.


  2. 13 going on 30 is a classic romance/comedy that is perfect for the teenage girl. It tells the story of a 13 year old girl who is desperate to become 30, and so she does. Through this transition she finds out who her true friends are and also learns the responsibilities associated with being an adult. This film is good as it has the underlying message that you should be careful for what you wish for but at the same time the movie is really enjoyable to watch. I think that it’s really relatable for girls around high school age, as they are constantly wishing for so many different things. That we should just try to stop wishing for so many things and just enjoy the presence.


  3. 13 going on 30 is a really funny and relatable movie. I thought that it was really good that the movie had a hidden meaning and that was that we should be careful what we wish for and true friends are better than lots of friends. My favourite part was when Jenna got all of the people at the party to dance to thriller and she made the party so much livelier and enjoyable.
    I would give this movie an 8 out of 10 because it was really entertaining and interesting but I think that it could have been a bit shorter and understandable. I would recommend this movie to anyone (especially girls) ages 12-13 and over because there were come things in it that would have been a lot harder to understand for a younger person.


  4. ’13 going on 30′ is a really funny movie! It is about a girl named Jenna and she is having her 13th birthday but she wishes that she was 30. (she calls it 30 and flirty). On her 13th birthday she suddenly turns 30 and discovers what it is like to be 30, she finds that she would like to be 13 again because she doesn’t want to miss a whole chunk of her life. Jenna’s friend, Matt, is really caring because even though Jenna treats him badly, he is still nice to her. The meaning of this movie is that you shouldn’t wish your life away, be in the moment and not want more than what you have. I would recommend this book to 12 and up because it can get a bit rude at some points. I give this book a 9 out of 10.


  5. I really really enjoyed watching this movie it is absolutely hilarious! It has a fantastic story line and is easy to follow. I think that its a really cute girly movie and would recommend it to anyone 11+. I think the best thing about this movie is that it makes you realise how we shouldn’t always wish that we were older and it makes you take the time to focus on the present. I also think that the actors are great and show the hidden story line, as this story does have a meaning behind it. Overall I think its a really great movie and would rate it a 7.5 out of 10.


  6. I love this movie! its really funny and has a interesting but good storyline. It was different to what i have seen but it was really engaging! It taught me to always be careful of what i wish for and i recommend this for anyone looking for a good movie! I also rate it an 8/10 🙂


  7. 13 going on 30 is really and sad at the same time. I have watched this movie a lot of times and I still watch this movie a lot. The movie is about a girl who wants to but popular but isn’t popular. She has a dream about becoming 30 and she does. She talks about that she wants to be 30 to her mum but her mum thinks that she is perfectly well how she is and that she has a lot of time before she hits the age of 30. If I had to rate this movie I would rate it a 9/10. But I think that people should think first then act with there lives because in this movie the 13 year old wanted to be 30 and she wanted to be 30 that minuet.Older people who are around 70 or 80 wish that they were 13 again and or 14 and people who are around that age some would love to be older and I think that people should live there lives as well as they can and enjoy it while they can.


  8. 13 going on 30 is funny, inspiring and sad, and that is why I love this movie. I have watched it a couple of times now, and it’s a movie that you can just keep on watching again and again. It is about a 13 year old who wants to be popular. Things don’t really go to plan and she wishes to be 30, and somehow her wish comes true. She finds out who are her real friends and who are not, and who actually care about her. My favourite part of the movie is at the end when she goes back to being 13, because she finally realises that the people who she thought were her friends don’t care too much about her, and she finds out who truly love her. My least favourite part was when her friend betrays her and gives her work to the other magazine company. I didn’t like this because she put so much effort into her work and it just goes to waste, and the other company gets credit for it. I would recommend this to people aged 12 and up because I think that it is a great movie to watch.
