(2019) A successful, but outrageously rude businesswoman (Regina Hall) learns to be more considerate after a little girl (Marley Taylor) casts a spell that turns her back into a 13-year-old middle schooler (Marsai Martin) and the only person she can share her secret with is her much-put-upon personal assistant (Issa Rae). Wholly unconnected to anything in the real world, director and co-writer Tina Gordon’s comic fantasy does initially produce some laughs as Hall’s rampaging character rips all around her to shreds. But much of the later humor is vulgar, a low ebb being reached in a sequence about the schoolgirl’s very age-inappropriate effort to flirt with her handsome teacher (Justin Hartley). As for the older version of the protagonist, she has a sleep-in boyfriend (Luke James) with whom she won’t even cohabit for fear of commitment. Uneven mix of effective and distasteful gags. A premarital relationship, much sexual humor, drug use, a couple of mild oaths, occasional crude and crass language. (A-III -- adults) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned) HBO (cable)
