Consensus: The plot's nothing new, but Garner shows a lovable flair for romantic comedies.

Richard Roeper
Ebert & Roeper

Like Hanks in Big, and Jamie Lee Curtis in Freaky Friday, Jennifer Garner is funny and endearing ...

Sara Gebhardt
Washington Post

A film whose far-fetched foundation is overshadowed by the endearing story.

Kevin Carr

There's not a lot of originality to this film.

No question: 13 Going on 30 could have aimed higher, but it hits the target at which it carefully points.

Ann Hornaday

If 13 Going on 30 isn't exactly original, it's still reasonably cool, thanks to Garner's uninhibited portrayal of a nerd trapped in a Sex and the City body, and to the inspired casting of Mark Ruffalo as the grown-up Matt.

Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

Touching and hilarious Jennifer Garner romcom.

Like a petulant 13-year-old, I'm still pouting over my disappointment.

Peter Howell
Toronto Star

A lot fresher than its premise, largely because of the terrific casting.

Just another dramatic romantic comedy, that it's a box office hit, without any reason.

Love this movie. Actually think I enjoy it more everytime I see it. Has a bit of everything in it. 80's flashbacks, and just a really sweet little story.
Cassie Hill
Great movie with incredible 80s music. Jennifer Garner & Mark Ruffalo are perfect in this movie (:
