Jennifer Garner (Daredevil, TV's "Alias") and Mark Ruffalo (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) star in this hilarious flash-forward romance about a pre-teen girl who goes from geek to glamorous. With the help of some magic wishing dust, 13 year-old Jenna Rink (Garner) becomes 30 and gorgeous overnight, with everything she ever wanted, except for her best friend Matt (Ruffalo). Now, this grown woman must create some magic of her own to help the little girl inside find the true love she left behind.

Touching, hilarious Jennifer Garner romcom.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that 13 Going on 30 is a sweet romantic comedy starring Jennifer Garner that will appeal to a wide range of viewers. Messages about popularity, compassion, personal values, and having integrity/being true to yourself are delivered with insight and humor. Because the story places a 13-year-old girl in the body of a 30-year-old, the main character's reaction to sexual situations is exaggerated and meant to be funny: There's "boob" talk, the beginnings of a striptease, a married man making a pass, mistaking sexual games for childhood board games, and the advent of a naked man (no actual nudity). Characters flirt, kiss, wear some revealing clothes, and use mild profanity and sexual language ("jump your bones," "bitch," "hell"). There's some drinking (the lead enjoys that part of being a grown-up); marijuana and mind-altering drugs are briefly mentioned.
