I watched a movie called

“13 Going on 30”

How do you translate this to Spanish?

(It’s like when a girl is only 13, but acts like she is 30)

“La de trece parece tener treinta” ???

    The way I see it, "13 going on 30" means that a young person is so knowledgeable (or believes he/she is) and mature that he/she is ahead of the normal curve.

    In Puerto Rico we would say: "tiene 13 (años) y va para 30".
    Again, this is to denote maturity (or sometimes advanced intelligence) in a young person.

    And the other way round? I.e. someone who is immature for their age, eg He's 31 going on 13.
    I think I asked this before but can't find it.
    Tiene 31 pero se comporta como 13. (?)
