  • OK

    OMG Three Zac posts in two days. I’m in Heaven. Man is he hot!!!!!

  • OK

    Six weeks from tomorrow and I hope it goes into wide release!!!

  • ANYA

    Man, I totally forgot that the MAIN reason zac gets movies is because he ALWAYS gets to show his abs, pecs, and now his a**, that’s a wise marketing move! considering THAT IS what ZAC EFRON actually sells, also the reason why no one takes him seriously

  • Lauren

    @anya
    Did you read the premise of the movie at all? No?
    Chill out

  • ANYA

    @Lauren: I have, and no, I don’t mean about this movie in particular more like of every movie he is, so actually, in my last post I didn’t even meant about movie premise but about what he does in every movie, that’s why he suits the frat, golden boy character in every movie

  • OK

    @ANYA I mustoof missed that scene in “AT ANY PRICE”
    he is an actor and this is what the role calls for.

  • OK

    Sorry that should of said must of missed

  • OK

    One last look before work. ( I really do like his acting being shirtless is just a bonus.)

  • snazzy

    at any price was actually disappointing and im not saying that cuz im some “hater”. I respect that his fans find him hot and all that but his acting could step up a bit because all i see is body. maybe its a phase? who knows! its easy for him to take his clothes off and get a couple of million from horny women but i wish he got a wider audience. maybe a superhero movie or action that wont involve too much sexuality but heroism. just sayin not hatin.

  • xx

    lol hes always pouting, like he wants to say something but then hes like “nah my prettiness does all the talking” . gotta hand it to him tho, he looks 100x better in comedy and romcoms than serious acting…either way im still laughing.

  • OK

    @ XX Maybe if you stopped looking in the mirror you would stop laughing ? Just remember hater he who laughs last , laughs best.
    I bet he is laughing all the way to the bank.

  • What a laugh

    Perhaps some of you who want to demean Zac Efron should read most critics’ reviews in regards to his acting instead of trying to use his good looks against him. Is that all you got to use to show your anger that he has been offered so many movies—that he has been working so much? It is jealousy when all you can do is complain about somebody’s looks for being able to get work. I can name a few people who have good looks who call themselves actors who can’t seem to buy a decent movie no matter how much they promote themselves. Looks only go so far.

  • xx

    @OK: because money is the source to all happiness right? him being richer than me automatically bumps up everything about him by like a thousand right? preach it right child ;) i see you have resorted to the “look in the mirror” remarks. i wasnt even saying zac isnt attractive lol he is hes very handsome so i dunno why me not really taking him seriously as an actor means im some kid or adult typing on my computer look all nasty when i personally think im not that bad lol. but thanks anyway.

  • xx

    @What a laugh: i read some of his critics and they were good, his best reviews were from paperboy but his at any price reviews overall were meh. but lets be real here, are “haters” like…supposedly me…gonna think “you know what? im going to read some zac efron movie reviews just to see if my opinion coincides with the critics” Nope. they are gonna take what they are given and go with it. Paperboy got a bit of buzz and even a golden globe. but the other two didnt quite reach the buzz. however movies like this? Always gonna keep him buzzing.
    I am RAGING that zac efron is getting roles OMG
    nope. im cool as a cucumber. zac is doing well so dont assume i think hes doing terrible cuz he clearly isnt. zacs looks can work for him such as in these romcoms or against him like in serious films. maybe thats why i cant take him that seriously? maybe i need him a lil roughed up to take away his um .. blinding beauty because …like @OK proclaims on every single zac efron post “Man is he hot!!!”

  • LOL

    Guys ignore the hateful comments. They are from the SAME person.

  • IMO

    @xx: I think it’s very obvious that he is one of the most beautiful people in the industry male or female and I if you look at the history of actors and actresses that can be a negative thing . Looks can distract form the performance and the actual talent of the individual. That is a fact that has been since the beginning film. With Zac , IMO the man has the talent to back of the looks. He is improving every time he makes a film and is still learning from every experience and it shows as he becomes more and more professional and proficient. After his intinal success in a fame soaring franchaise. He knew his limitations and wanted to concentrate on smaller films which where he could fine tune his craft and learn from respected professionals in the business. If it is called for to show his physical attributes and it’s part of the buzz for the films then hey welcome to Hollywood. I believe that Zac has his big break still ahead and right now these comedies are something that is a nice diversion from the heavy dramas and indies that have been his last few films. I do agree with What a Laugh in that his last few indies roles have been noticed by critics who finally are seeing past the handsome face and seeing that there is substance and talent in the man. Zac has the it factor and he stirs up interest and in Hollywood that translates to money. So if he took a chance with all these indy films (which in actually a very slight percentage make any money) and he fine tuned his acting skills they I commend him for working on his craft so when that special film role comes along he will be ready .I feel he will have more than name recognition and he will also will recognized for his talent as well by both the audience and critics. He has a bright future and he will prove the doubters wrong.

  • OK

    @What a laugh. Very well said .His time is coming.

  • OK

    @ XX Man he is HOT and TALENTED.

  • OK

    @IMO You are right he has the It factor only vey few celebrities have it and he does. You are also right he gets better with every film.

  • What???

    @OK: You don’t read very well What a Laugh didn’t say his time is coming . IMO did.then you backtracking and telling XX that he is HOt and Talented as a afterthought after more intelligent posters said it first. that was the point you always just talk about his looks and how hot he is.

  • xx

    @IMO: i like you. you say it how it is and focus on talent over looks. you dont seem biased and dealt with my opinion on a professional level. but i dont doubt his future he is doin well but i personally think romcoms is where he is at. nothing wrong with that he is still successful i dunno why @OK and others assumed i was jealous of him and his money when im not.
    @What??? thank you!
    @OK well i dunno what to say lol u proved my point and didnt even know how to reply to the comments/ assumptions you made of me.

  • Lawrence

    Haters need to stick they’re heads in toilets and flush*lol*, they always say the same things about Zac its like reading the same story over and over*lmao*. Zac is hot and talented, I’m sure he’ll prove that again and again so its no worries.

  • truffle

    because being hot comes first right? smh.

  • Sharona

    Well, I am just going to sit back and take all the comments from the haters with a grain of salt. If any of you haters would take the time to go to IMDB and read the impressive list of projects Zac is attached to, you will realize that directors and producers do not agree with you, but instead, they see the talent Zac has and will unleash upon the public in the very near future. The fact that he is built like Adonis and is drop-dead gorgeous is just the icing on the cake!

  • IMO

    @xx: Maybe you won’t like me after you read what I have to say. You definitely have a right to your opinion about him only being able to do one thing, but it’s just your opinion. You have to know that when you come onto a Zac Efron post you are dealing with people who are fans of his. So when you state your opinion which anyone can do of coarse you will have to know that if you state things like he is always pouting , or he is basically a one trick pony your going to be in the minority here. You will be called a Hater because in essence that is what they generally do. So if you want my opinion I would caution you how you state your Point of view is the way you will be perceived by others. Not everyone will like what you say but at least you can say it in a respectful way. His fans love him no matter what he does but there are fans that are more realistic as well and see the pitfalls of Hollywood and the way they can pigeonhole an actor. We don’t want that for Zac I for one believe in his talent and he just needs that breakout role which I gurantee you will be in his future. I also would hate to see him pigeonholed into one type of film such as a romcom that is sure death for an actor . Time has proven that diversity is what they need and that is what I hope Zac will do diverse roles. He will grow and get better and better as he ages, he already has. So in that you and I may have a difference of opinion because I think Zac has the talent ,charisma, and likeability that will endear him to the general audience. I see that happening sooner than later and with this comedies he will get exposure to another audience he may not have had before . Young males and from what I have seen in the trailers ,they will not see him as a threat but they will enjoy his comedic timing and he will win them over.

    @IMO: nah ur still cool :) im not gonna hate you for your opinion either that would just make me a hypocrite. i have stated already if u read all my comments that i “personally” think this. vote for. vote against. its ur choice, but just dont take it personally since i am branded as a “hater”. i also stated “zacs looks can work for him such as in these romcoms or against him like in serious films. maybe thats why i cant take him that seriously? maybe i need him a lil roughed” which i dont really think that translates to being a one trick pony and tells you that i am still and will always be open for persuasion in his acting like everyone else(i can chaaangee lol). you make it sounds like romcoms are bad when the right ones can easily show a diverse range of acting. remember silving linings playbook? earned a lot of oscar nominations and wins – i wouldnt put that in the category of a one trick pony. neither are movies like easy A which premiered in january (like this one will) but still done very well. i think its just that they are put into the category of being bad when they’re not because they can be sappy but it seems zac is making calculated decisions on which romcoms are best suited. and hes good in cool flicks like 17 again (hella funny) and now neighbors will allow him to have a male audience but that awkward moment is more of a female audience so it just cements his sex appeal and nothing more.

    btw, the pouty think was a joke, i didnt intend for anyone to get upset by it or take it personally on zacs behalf. in the pic he kinda does look like hes pouting tho right?

  • IMO

    @xx: Ok respect to your opinion about rom coms I agree that that when one is done well there is nothing better , then again the bad ones I can hardly take. Case in point Matthew McConaughey started off with such potenial then his string of rom coms almost did him in. Now he’s back with films that do his talent justice. Not that his rom coms didn’t make buck they did I just think they pigioeonholed him and people into expecting that and only that from him Same with Hugh Grant people don’t even want to see him in anything other that those types of films. I just think Zac can do drama and actually do it all. I love his performance in the Paperboy and in At Any Price. He needs the chance and the right script in a big film .Time will tell on Zac , afterall he is very young on how far his looks with take him After that only talent remains or it can be over as we have seen in many gorgeous people’s careers. For now I’m betting on Zac and his talent and using his looks to their advantage. LOL on his face it is his serious face I’ll give you that. Let’s put it this way I am a fan of his and I hope to sway you into
    accepting him as a actor in all genres. It may be awhile since his next two are comedies but I feel his day will come. Peace
