Hello Couchers and welcome to the 86th edition of Tuesday Couch Potatoes. Wow! I can't believe we've all come a long way. Will we be able to make it to 100? I am looking forward for that to day to come. Here's keeping my fingers crossed.
This week's theme is Age-Swapping Movies. We've all seen this kind of movie where the young suddenly becomes old the next day or vice versa. One that I find really cute is 13 Going On 30 which stars Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo. I really enjoyed watching this movie, especially the pajama party and the Thriller Nights dance scene. The fashion when Jenna was still 13 was so 80's and I can't help but laugh at how fashion was in those days. I hope most of you have seen this film but if not, time to grab your PJ's and some popcorn and hop onto your couches on a Saturday night. This movie will just be a perfect treat!
For the benefit of those who haven't seen it yet, here's a summary from the Internet Movie Database Website:
The movie 13 going on 30 focuses on a young teenage girl by the name of Jenna Rink who suffers a humiliating thirteenth birthday and makes a wish to skip ahead to when she is thirty years old. Through the magic of some wishing dust her wish comes true. The movie then transports us to a thirty-year-old Jenna with the exception that she is only still thirteen on the inside but doesn't remember anything since her thirteenth birthday. She soon realizes that her thirty-year-old self has everything that she wanted when she was younger, such as a cool apartment, a fabulous wardrobe, and a dream job. Jenna soon realizes that even though she has everything she could ever want when she was younger, there is still something missing. Without her best friend from 1987, she gets her assistant to track down Matt. To her dismay she learns that her and Matt have been estranged since high school and that Matt is now engaged. When Jenna shows up at Matt's wedding, he gives Jenna back the dream house that she once through at him during her thirteenth birthday. Jenna leaves to find out that the wishing dust still works because we are then pulled back to the past to see a different story. Jenna tells off the girl she once wanted to be like and runs up the stairs with Matt to find that their getting married as there adult selves. Written by Anonymous
Here's the movie preview from TrailerAddict.com:
It really is a fun movie, with Jenna having a lot of realizations in her life. This movie reminds us that there will always be a child in us. It is up to us whether to leave that child behind or allow it to set us free.
