After a disgruntled Matthew Perry wishes that he could relive his glory days as a youthful basketball champ, he wakes up as his 17-year-old self, High School Musical's Zac Efron.

It's not quite this generation's Back to the Future, but 17 Again is the kind of well-engineered high-concept comedy which was more common in the 1980s than it is today. The plotting gives every character a satisfying storyline, and the smart dialogue doesn't talk down to its target audience.
