(2019) (Regina Hall, Issa Rae) (PG-13)
- 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.
- 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.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For some suggestive content.
