Is this like a sequel to "13 going on 30". :) Just kidding. Enjoyed the banter in dialogue and Ryan Reynolds. That's about it. Good for one time viewing.
Just ok, nothing special.
Will be forgotten by the end of the year.
Time travel is real and Ryan Reynolds has come back in time on a rogue mission, and must team up with his 12-year-old self, Walter Scobell being quite adept at delivering Ryan Reynolds-like dialog. He's exactly what this persona would have been like at that age, and I got into trouble in similar ways for having a smart mouth myself, so it's relatable. The movie is The Adam Project, and it's got a pretty great premise for a kid-centric family movie. I'm not sure the time travel paradoxes are consistent within the movie, but it's winsome in other ways. First, the action is a lot of fun, at times even visceral, but normally well-choreographed. Second, it's surprisingly emotional, especially the mother-son content, and I wish there'd been more of it (the father-son stuff is required, but I'm not as engaged by it). And then there's the star-studded cast, though there's some uncanny valley stuff going on where de-aging is concerned. Not to be taken too seriously, just sit back and have fun.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
