13 Going On 30 (2004)


 Gary Winick


 Josh Goldsmith, Cathy Yuspa


 Jennifer Garner, Mark Ruffalo, Judy Greer
The comedy "13 Going on 30" is essentially a retread of "Big." What keeps the picture going is the director Gary Winick's love for actors, and his refusal to judge them by the characters they play. And any movie that telegraphs its fondness for its cast automatically has something going for it that's rare in contemporary comedy; this isn't one of those movies in which most of the actors steer clear of upstaging the star. This spiritual decency, a handful of songs from the toddler days of MTV and a few other fillips of clear-eyed charm go a long way toward making up for the tiredness of the concept, a kid magically leapfrogging into the body of an adult. In this case, it's 13-year-old Jenna (Christa B. Allen), who's suffering through a miserable failure of a birthday. When some magic dust that a friend gives her lands on her carefully moussed hair, she awakens from a nap as a 30-year-old version of herself (Jennifer Garner). As acted by Ms. Garner, Jenna has a coltish gawkiness that she never quite sublimates. The obvious laughs are wrung from the contrast of an inexperienced child in a mature body, as Jenna bobs through a world in which the supposed adults turn out to be more childish than she is. The performances give the movie more flavor and life than the situation, which often feels like pre-chewed Bubble Yum.
