I wish I was flirty and 30 and everything was perfect,’ sobs 13-year-old Jenna Rink (Allen), after the ‘Six Chicks’, a ra-ra-skirted clique of junior ‘Heathers’, lock her in the cupboard with amorous Wotsit-resembling pal Matt (Marquette) – instead of the eighth grade’s Prince Charming. Luckily she’s under a sprinkle of magic dust at the time, and wakes up 17 years older (in the gym-buffed body of Garner), a Manhattan-dwelling fashion-mag editor, who’s lost her nice-girl qualities along with her braces. With its ’80s references, it’s basically calorie-lite escapism for those who are 30 going on 13 and want to see nice girls get Mark Ruffalo and bad girls wear Chanel and edit Vogue.
