Image result for taffey tawanna championHello, and Welcome to Miss TaffeytheChamp’s Blog! Are any of you familiar with the vast array of films (including television films) within Keanu Reeves’ repertoire? Well, I am familiar with them, and I am interested in discussing his role within the television film entitled, “Young Again”. This shall be the topic of discussion for this week.

Young Again” was a rather enjoyable teeny-bopper type film to watch. It did take me back to the 1980’s; especially with the fun songs from the remarkable electronic keyboardist and singer, Howard Jones, being played throughout. For those of you who may not remember, Howard Jones often composed some fun and entertaining Pop songs throughout the 1980’s.

Howard Jones also, along with the legendary Phil Collins, actually played musical instruments for Ms. Tina Turner in concert before; which was exciting to watch. And the song, “Lucky Star“, by the renowned Madonna (a Queen B of the 1980’s music era), is heard in this film, as well. All of which serve to make this film so entertaining; as it brings back fond memories of the delightful 1980’s time period.

Storyline: “Michael Riley wishes to be 17 again and which comes true. He goes back to the high school where he fell in love with Laura and still be in love with her. Mick is very happy and excited to be 17 again, he finds Laura who is a widow having 2 children and then realizes the reason why they broke up years ago. Laura makes Mick understand that there is no way to go back. Finally Mick is willing to face who he is and has a new start with Laura when he turns back to a middle age man.” Written by Anonymous

Keanu Reeves successfully portrays the character, “Michael Riley“, at the age of 17 within this film. Michael Riley (who is referred to as “Mick“) is basically a charming, gifted student (oft referred to as a brainiac these days), trying to relive his misspent youth. This wish was made in order for him to return to his true love, “Laura Gordon“; portrayed by actress Lindsay Wagner. Yet, this reason is unbeknownst to him, during the initial stages (after the wish is granted by a guardian angel).

One of the humorous facets of this comedy & science fiction/fantasy genre film, is that whilst he is in high school, “Michael Riley“, starts dating the daughter of his lost true love, and her name is “Tracy Gordon“. What is even more hilarious is that he only dates “Tracy” to get closer to “Laura“. And when both of them discover this deception, “Michael’s” world is turned upside down, and he is considered by his high school peers and classmates to be weird or a freak; as we are aware that adolescents love to gossip. For gossip is so fun and entertaining to them; just like with some mean-spirited, busybody-type adults.

Through several mishaps and errors, “Michael“, begins to realize that making the wish was a mistake. He comes to the conclusion that ‘you can never really go back’, thanks to sincere advice from “Laura Gordon“. And so he decides to summon his guardian angel again and requests that the wish be revoked. At first, it isn’t noticeable, but in a matter of minutes, he returns to his 40 year-old present day self; portrayed by the late great, Robert Urich (may he rest in peace). And “Young Again” concludes wonderfully with a very happy ending: “Michael” and “Laura” get a second chance at love, and a potential future life together.

As I have indicated, this is an entertaining film to watch. Keanu was quite believable in the role of “Michael Riley“. So, for any of you who may be interested, please feel free to watch it. Though, I must warn you; it is difficult to find. But, it is available for viewing in 10 separate portions via https://www.youtube.com/.
