Comic fantasy starring Jennifer Garner as Jenna Rink, who at the start of the film is a typical awkward adolescent, constantly dreaming of being popular and accepted as part of the in-crowd at school. During her thirteenth birthday party, she finds herself sitting alone and humiliated in a dark closet after being rejected during a teenage kissing game - and fervently wishes that there might be some way to avoid the trials and tribulations of the teenage years that stretch so cruelly and inevitably ahead of her. When she emerges, she gets the surprise of her life: she's popular, beautiful, successful - and days away from her 30th birthday. The only problem is, her mind has not matured to match her new womanly body, career or love-life!
Similar to the 1988 Tom Hanks vehicle Big, 13 Going On 30 benefits from the undeniable appeal of Garner, who exudes the awkwardness and energy of a teenager. Meanwhile copious 1980s pop culture references, an energetic soundtrack, and vibrant colors provide instant nostalgia.
