QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: A hard-charging, no-nonsense tech executive experiences her worst nightmare when she wakes up one morning and is an awkward 14-year-old again.
PLOT:
Jordan Sanders (REGINA HALL) is a hard-charging, take-no-prisoners tech executive, who drives an expensive sports car, owns a penthouse condo, and has a closet full of designer clothes. But when we first meet her, she is a nerdy, 14-year-old, middle school student (MARSAI MARTIN) who is bullied by her classmates. When she is embarrassed in front of the entire school, she vows to one day become a boss and never need people again.

Flash forward to the present day, and Jordan indeed owns her own firm, is a bully to her employees, cuts in lines, drives like the entire road is her own, and so forth. But she picks on the wrong person in the form of 14-year-old Stevie (MARLEY TAYLOR), the daughter of a food-truck vendor outside of Jordan's firm who fashions herself a magician. After Jordan dresses her down and refers to her as a fire hazard, Stevie casts a spell on Jordan that she be made a teen again. The next morning, Jordan indeed wakes up as her awkward middle-school self.

Her only ally is her put-upon assistant, April (ISSA RAE), who she has verbally and psychologically abused for years. With a big pitch meeting with a major corporate client named Connor (MIKEY DAY) looming, April struggles to rally her colleague Preston (TONE BELL) and their coworkers to pick up the slack. Meanwhile, local law enforcement has compelled April to enroll Jordan in her old middle school, where she is immediately picked on by the popular Jasmine (EVA CARLTON); crushes on her hunky homeroom teacher Mr. Marshall (JUSTIN HARTLEY); and forced to sit with three unpopular kids named Raina, Isaac, and Devon (THALIA TRAN, JD McCRARY, and TUCKER MEEK) at lunch.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Teens and tweens may be attracted to its central premise of a thirty-something becoming a teen again and dealing with middle school and adolescence.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
