While she thinks she has the popular life she always wanted? She learns that the life she always wanted to live was right in front of her.
13 Going on 30 is considered one of the best rom-coms of the 00s, and a career-defining role for Garner.

“I’ll have a Piña Colada, not virgin. Wanna see my ID? Totally have it!”
“I don’t want to be beautiful in my own way. I want to look like these people.”
“Matty, I told you—something really weird is happening. Yesterday was my 13th birthday and then, and then today I woke up and I”m this, and you, I mean—you’re that! You get it?”
“I want you to be so, so happy.”
“You wanna know a secret? You’re the sweetest guy I’ve ever known.”
“Matt, stop being so nice to me. I don’t deserve it. Do you know what kind of person I am now, I mean – do you know who I am right now? I don’t have any real friends. I did something bad with a married guy. I don’t talk to my mom and dad. I’m not a nice person. And the thing is—I’m not 13 anymore.”
“You are rude, and mean, and sloppy, and frizzy—and I don’t like you at all.”
“Let’s put life back into the magazine. And fun and laughter and silliness. I think we all—I think all of us – want to feel something that we’ve forgotten or turned our backs on because maybe we didn’t realize how much we were leaving behind. We need to remember what used to be good. If we don’t, we won’t recognize it even if it hits us between the eyes.”
“I love you, Matt. You’re my best friend.”
“Can you hear that, sir? Can you hear the music?”
“That’s ‘cause ‘’ve got these incredible boobs to fill it out!”
“It doesn’t matter what Lucy said. I stopped trusting her after she stole my Pop Rocks in the third grade.”
“You don’t always get the dream house, but sometimes you get pretty close, you know?”
“There are six of them, Jenna, that’s the whole point. There can’t be a seventh Sixth Chick. It’s just mathematically impossible. Besides you’re way cooler than they are, they’re totally unoriginal.”
“You can’t just turn back time.”
“Are you high? You been smoking pot? Doing X? Fallen into a K-Hole? You doing drugs?”
“Lucy? I barely recognized you. Did you get a nose job?”
“Okay, you can wipe the doe-eyed-Bambi-watching-her-mother-get-shot-and-strapped-to-the-back-of-a-van look from your face.”
“Jenna, if you’re gonna start lying about your age, I’d go with 27.”
