Critic Reviews for 18 Again!

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

Although Burns is, of course, a beloved institution, and any opportunity to see him is welcome, he is not given much to do in the movie, and he doesn't do much with it.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Hardly the worst of this peculiar sub-genre.

January 26, 2005 | Rating: 3/5

Not even the charms of Mr. George Burns can salvage this long-in-the-tooth "Big" rip-off.

Audience Reviews for 18 Again!

Ready for another Freaky Friday rip off? Of course Burns is funny as usual, but the rest of the cast is boring, and the story is as I said before, over used by this point. Not bad, but not good either.
