    I Watched "17 Again" For The First Time As An Adult And I Never Realized How Creepy It Is

    Parts of this movie are kind of disturbing!

    17 Again was released in 2009 and has just recently made an appearance on Netflix. Naturally, I needed to rewatch for the first time as an adult and see if the movie still holds up.

    1. Zac Efron is dancing, we're off to a great start.

    2. With Mike being so nostalgic about high school, this is feeling very It's A Wonderful Life*...

    3. Here we go, Zac Efron is 17 again and suddenly I am 13 again...

    4. I forgot Georgina Sparks was in this!

    5. Remember when people really dressed like this? Graphic tees and sideways caps?

    6. Can we talk about Zac Efron in this scene? Where is his Oscar for putting on his jacket like that?

    7. Who could forget this ICONIC cafeteria monologue?!

    8. I remember very distinctly that I did not understand the health class scene as a child...

    9. Zac Efron is checking out his wife who doesn't know it's him because he's 17 and she thinks he's her son's friend!?! Very uncomfortable!

    10. "Carnations? What a douchebag!" Zac basically said, "This is Leslie Mann, the budget for flowers should be way higher!"

    11. I like how they casually threw in some important life lessons.

    12. Okay, I can relate to Ned...

    13. Now, his young daughter is coming on to him because she doesn't know it's her father! Yikes!

    14. Mike/Mark, you can't try to kiss Scarlet!

    15. Zac Efron is an amazing actor I don't care what anyone says...

    16. I lowkey forgot that Scarlet finds out Zac was really her husband all along!

    My overall opinion: this movie still holds up!

    Thank you, Zac Efron. Your contributions to society do not go unnoticed.
