''Thirteen Going On Thirty'' is a RomanticComedy movie about a girl named Jenna Rink (Creator/JenniferGarner) who is 13 and suffers from the ageless drama of 13-year-old girls: she doesn't have enough boobs, she doesn't have enough cool clothes, [[JerkJock she doesn't have a beautiful and popular boyfriend]], and she definitely doesn't [[InWithTheInCrowd have friends among the In Crowd]].

** Not that Jenna's is any better - "Sweetbottom"? (Mind you, many men would agree it fits considering she's played by Jennifer Garner.) And Matt's junior high nickname was Beaver.

* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Jenna goes from being a teen in TheEighties to being an adult during the TurnOfTheMillennium. The movie ignores many of the problems (and humor) which might result from the TimeTravel aspect of the plot. Is Jenna going around as a 30-year-old high-powered magazine editor in 2004 thinking [[TheGreatPoliticsMessUp the Soviet Union still exists]] or that MichaelJackson is still black? Who knows, it's never brought up. However, a few jokes are brought up: she doesn't initially know what a cell phone ringing is, and she thinks Eminem is the candy brand.

* MichaelJacksonsThrillerParody: Jenna dances MichaelJackson's "Thriller" dance in a nightclub and this gets the party going...This could also be a ChekhovsGag when we see her dancing by herself at her party in the beginning.
