17 again

I want to see this movie. It looks like it will be great. But considering it's only rated PG 13, and of course it stars Zac Efron, it seems as if it will draw the teenage crowd. I may not want to be in a theater with a bunch of teenagers! What do you think? If you wanted to see a movie badly enough, would you endure a group of teenagers in order to see the movie, or would you wait for a time that was less convenient for the teenagers, such as the middle of the week when they're at school? Have you seen this movie yet? Do you think it will draw the teenage crowd, or might I be safe going to see it?

You should illegally download it from a site that will provide you with a cam or recorded version of it. You should not waste your time on this movie, the origanal sucked so why would they want to reproduce a bad movie? There will be a bunch of teenagers that go and see it, you will be stuck in a theater with little teeny-bopper girls and their boyfriends that are just looking to get some. So, say your money and buy a full 5 course meal and a nice place, you might actually walk away with more money then you expect. Movies are expensive....

This movie looks fantastic with a great bit of eye candy in to drool over haha! I would say that there will be a lot of teenagers in there with you! He was on tv over here not so long ago and there were a lot of girls waiting for him outside the studio! I have not seen it yet but it is one I will definately make a point of seeing.

I think it is going to draw a huge teenage crowd. I don't think it matters if you go on the weekend or during the week. There probably will be a good bit of them either way. I personally would wait to see it on video. I'm one of those that can't stand teenagers being idiots. I watch them and think "geez did we act like that when we were that age?" lol. Instead of being the one throwing the popcorn you'd be the one getting hit with it now lol.

I would wait until it a less convenient time for the teenagers. I took my son to see Monsters VS Aliens last night and there were a TON of teenagers in line to see 17 Again. I am glad that is not the one my son picked even though I would like to see it.

I believe that it will draw the teenage crowd, too. But not only them, no, can't forget about the middle aged guys out there, livin' life in regret and would love to go back to when they were 17 to redo things differently. Wasn't there a Tv show with the same plot line as this, too? Yeah there will be some 30 and 40 year old dudes out there who want to check it out, or maybe they'll wait 'til it hits dvd, check it out in the privacy of their own home.

No, I don't think it will draw a crowd of older men. It's more of a teenage type movie.

I just borrowed this movie from the library and I enjoyed it. If it was in the theaters its not something I would have bothered to see but because it doesnt cost anything to borrow movies from the library I figured why not. It was actually a pretty cute movie. There were some really weird parts in it but it was a pretty funny movie with a really good message. Zac Efron is a very handsome young man I'm sure it drew a pretty big crowd of young girls to the theater to watch the movie.

This is a great movie. I've seen it with my girlfriend and I usually like chick flicks and this was a great pick. It was very emotional and heart felt. I cried and laugh. I would think it will draw a large teenage crowd just because of Zac Efron. But the acting was done pretty good by him. The dancing may get a little cheezy but what do you expect from a guy that did a trilogy for a High School =)

well so have you seen it? It's a fun movie. It's not totally boring or meant for too young audience... It's actually nice and is values filled..

Nope will not go see this movie because it looks stupid and pretty much like all of those other movies about an older person becoming a teen. wich there was another movie called 17 again made back in the 90s wich I liked. And not to mention I hate zac effron think he sucks mainly because teenage girls become so obsessive that they ruin everything when they become so obsessve.

It's been so long since I've been to the cinema that I think I'd endure a theatre full of pre-schoolers if it meant I got an evening out!

I think it will definitely draw a very young crowd so your idea of going during the week is probably smart. Personally, I think it looks cute, but I will probably wait for DVD to watch it. I might change my mind on that, but I will most likely wait. It does look really cute, though, and Zac Efron was adorable in Hairspray... and it has Matthew Perry in it too, so I'm sure it will be good.

I dont like to watch movie in cinema, I like watching it in home, on computer or DVD, I will feel not comfortable with lot of people ,and same time if I go to toilet I cant stop it in the cinema,maybe I will miss an exciting part of it,BUT in home.... and I think it is very expensive for our students in china....

yeah that is what i am thinking too that if i watch it that there will be lots of teens there that i will feel out of place. or they may think that i wanted to 17 again that is why i wanted to watch it in a way i am escaping from real life and feel 17 again by watching this one. ha ha. but quite interesting movie i think.

If I wanted to go see a movie bad enough, nothing would stop me. Once the movie starts, I can just put myself into the movie and pretend nobody else was there.

I haven't seen the movie yet, but I would like to. I personally would go during the week, but thats because I hate crowds young or old. You will definately get teenagers during the weekend for that movie and others. Whenever you decide to go, I hope you have a good time!

I would stay home and watch it online. I think there will be a lot of teen agers, mine wants to go! If you still insist on going, I would go during the day during the week.

I would say go at night on a weekend or in the middle of the week in the middle of the day.
