Seventeen Again ★★ 2000

Willie (Tahj Mowry) is doing a science project involving an antiaging formula that accidentally gets mixed into some soap that his divorced grandparents, Cat (Clarke) and Gene (Hooks), wind up using. This turns them both in 17-year-olds (Tamara Mowry as Cat and Taylor as Gene). Cat winds up going to high school with lookalike granddaughter Sydney (Tia Mowry) and has a second chance with the teenaged Gene. Meanwhile, Willie is searching for an antidote since his formula has some potentially serious flaws. That the story is silly isn't the problem—it's also incoherent. 97m/C VHS, DVD . Tia Mowry, Tamera Mowry, Tahj Mowry, Mark Taylor, Hope Clarke, Robert Hooks; D: Jeff Byrd; W: Stewart St. John; C: John Tarver; M: Christopher Franke, Shawm Stockman.CABLE
