Frodo was like 50 when he left the Shire...
The movie would have been quite different if he had been portrayed that way...not to mention the sense of urgency that is felt in the movie from the time of Bilbo's birthday party to when Frodo actually leaves being absent in the books...it's actually about a 30 year span.
As much as I LOVE the books, what works for a novel does not necessarily work for film.
