Thirteen Going On Thirty Print
Written by Mike Noel   
Tuesday, 20 April 2004
I like dill pickles and I like chocolate peanut butter ice cream. Not together, of course, that delicacy is reserved for pregnant women. But things are pretty jarring if I take a bite of a pickle when I was expecting ice cream, or the other way around.  At first I don't like the taste but then after a few seconds I realize what I'm tasting and I like it.

This happens sometimes with movies.  I am expecting one thing and it turns out to be different.  At first I don't like it but later, once I'm realigned to the new perspective, I like it.

The other night we saw a sneak preview of the new Jennifer Garner movie Thirteen Going On Thirty.  I don't know what exactly I was expecting but it wasn't what I got. The movie was funny and cute, especially if you were a thirteen year old girl in the mid 80's.  Then it would be even more funny.  Unfortunately I wasn't ever a thirteen year old girl.

To be honest, a lot of the jokes went over my head.  Most everyone else at the show seemed to get the jokes but I didn't.  So I felt a bit like the odd man out.  So that probably affected my enjoyment of the movie.

I would like to see the movie again and this time with different expectations.  It will probably be better.
