Maybe a not to be confused with 18 Again --Wolfer68 (talk) 16:53, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Cut and Paste[edit]

The "plot" section was copied and pasted from IMDB and should be deleted. It was inserted onto WP on 18-Feb-2008, but according to archive.org it was on IMDB on 8-Feb-2008: http://web.archive.org/web/20080208161435/http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0974661/synopsis Peter Ballard (talk) 02:48, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

OK, I'm deleting the entire plot, because it was copied from a copyrighted source. It needs to be rewritten. Peter Ballard (talk) 23:43, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Opening part of the film[edit]

It said previously that Scarlet was pregnant in the opening part of the film (when it's set in 1989) and that this is why Scarlet was going to dump Mike at the start of the film. I don't think she was pregnant, because their daughter,, Maggie would now be twenty, surely too old to be in High School? Scottrb (talk) 22:32, 20 April 2009 (UTC)


Maybe she had a miscarage? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Izzymac (talkcontribs) 16:50, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

Well, it said she TOLD him she was pregnant, so that's at least 8 months until she's born, so she'd be more like 19... and who knows, maybe she failed a grade or something? 68.221.209.13 (talk) 17:12, 17 April 2009 (UTC)

The movie was filmed in late 2007 and was probably intended for a 2008 release. So I wouldn't take the "present" scenes to necessarily be set in 2009. All Hallow's Wraith (talk) 01:11, 18 April 2009 (UTC)

Honestly, I don't think the typical target audience for this was thinking that far ahead.... either that, or he has a kid that moved out already and everyone is just pretending didn't happen... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.153.29.23 (talk) 03:36, 3 March 2010 (UTC)

=============[edit]

I can't find any record of a book by Dan Fogelman as stated in the opening line of the Wikipeida article.

According to IMDB: "Is "17 Again" based on a book?

Answer: No. 17 Again is based on a screenplay by American screenwriter Jason Filardi." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.184.43.77 (talk) 13:06, 30 December 2011 (UTC)
