Threat advisory: Elevated - Significant risk of entertaining activities

Movie propaganda

For some, 13 feels like it was yesterday. For Jenna, it was. A comedy for the kid in all of us.

As Jenna celebrates her 13th birthday, all she dreams for in life is to be popular, hang out with the cool kids and date the cutest boy in school. During her birthday party, she goes into the closet for the teenage game Seven Minutes in Heaven, which turns out to be the worst seven minutes of her life. Sitting alone in the darkness hoping to be joined by the boy of her dreams, she waits in vain as no one comes in. Humiliated, she refuses to come out and wishes for everything she doesn't have. When she finally emerges she gets the surprise of her life. She's popular, beautiful, successful... and only five days away from her 30th birthday.

Theatrical report

Chick flick.

Where else would a geeky, gawky 13-year-old teenager with no friends except the fat kid next door grow up to be a super-achieving, skinny, sexy, trendy, career-focussed, fully-menstruating woman of the new millennium, then change her whole life around so that she also manages to get the fat kid next door who grew up to be the super-cool, sexy stud from the Village?

Good for a warm fuzzy.
