17 Again Go or No

Zac Efron’s movie 17 Again hit theatres yesterday. While I am sure tons of young High School Musical fans want to see this movie so that they can swoon over Zac, this movie isn’t appropriate for all ages. To start with, it is rated PG-13. I usually disgree with movie ratings and often feel PG-13 movies should be R and PG movies should be at least PG-13. So, on that basis alone my 13 yr old would not be allowed to see 17 Again.

Why was it rated PG-13? There is an underlying theme of pre-marital sex and teen pregnancy as well as teen partying and beer. It is also rated PG-13 for language.  Even with these hints we don’t know for sure what this movie is actually like. My suggestion would be, especially for kids 13 and under, either the parents see it first and then let the kids see it at a later date or just wait until it comes out on DVD and then you can preview it at home before the kids see it.

Zac Hosts SNL Tonight

Tonight is the night Zac Efron has dreamed about since he was 10 years old. Tonight he will host Saturday Night Live for the first time. Efron has said he started in sketch comedy and is looking forward to returning to his roots. The musical guests this week are the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

How do you think Zac will do? Can he handle the opening and the skits? Is he funny enough? How is his comedic timing? The answers to these questions will come in one of two ways. 1. From your opinions left in the comments. 2. From his success or failure tonight on SNL 11:30pm EDT on NBC.

Wax Zac

Today the wax image of Zac Efron was unveiled at Madame Tussauds New York. The figure is on loan from Madame Tussauds Las Vegas for 3 months. Zac joins fellow Disney stars Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers at the New York attraction.

Last year during the filming of High School Musical 3: Senior Year, Zac took part in a 2 hour process of hundreds of photos and 250 precise measurements of his head and body so that the likeness could be created. What do you think? Does it look like Zac? Leave me a comment.

If you are in the New York area or will be in the next 3 months you can visit the museum website to plan your visit.

17 Again London Premeire

Zac Efron was looking great as always as he walked the red carpet at Odeon West End in London for today’s 17 Again premiere. It seems Zac was dateless again. Even co-stars Matthew Perry and Leslie Mann didn’t make it to London for the premiere. All of the stars are expected to attend the US premiere in Hollywood at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on April 14th, three days before it arrives in US theatres. Those that have already seen the movie as it has opened in Australia and France have given it high ratings and reviews. It will be interesting to see how this romantic comedy fairs here in the US. Are you looking forward to seeing 17 Again? Let me know what your thoughts are by leaving a comment for me.

Zac isn’t Footloose Anymore

Paramount Pictures has issued a statement that backs up yesterday’s rumors. “Zac Efron is no longer attached to the upcoming film.” says the statement. Zac has been part of the Footloose re-make plan since the summer of 2007.

Zac is trying hard to re-brand himself and get away from the good boy, singing and dancing roles that shot him to stardom. Just last week Interview magazine’s April cover was released and Zac is posing with a naked model-something Coach Bolton would disapprove of Troy doing, I am sure.

Not everyone is successful at re-branding themselves. It wil be interesting to see how Zac makes out on his quest.

Zac and Taylor Down Under

Zac Efrom was in Austrailia for the premeire of his new movie 17 Again. Girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens didn’t make the trip with him. Lucky for Zac, singing sensation Taylor Swift was in town to perform a concert the next night. Taylor accompanied Zac on the red carpet to the delight of screaming fans. 17 Again opens in Australia on April 9, United Kingdom on April 10 and in the US and Canada on April 17th. Photobucket

Zac said…

Zac Efron has been in the news a lot in the past few days and he’s leaving some odd sound bites behind.

In an interview about Zac’s upcoming movie 17 Again, the 21 year old actor was asked about being 17 and what his high school experience was like. According to the article published Friday by a Scottish newspaper his answer was, “I was not the heart-throb of the class in any way and not a total geek, I fell somewhere in-between. I was just a regular kid. My life was set, I was going to go to college, I was going to try to do something great, like be a doctor.” Hmmm, sounds like a high school with a lot of good-looking guys if Zac wasn’t a heart-throb. What do you think? Are most of the high school guys you know hotter than Zac Efron or geekier than Zac Efron? Leave me a comment and let me know.

This quote from Zac seems like Zac might be just a tad stuck on himself…”When anyone looks on my ‘Most Frequently Played’ song list, they see the High School Musical soundtracks are played the most, which is kind of embarrassing. They think it’s me loving to listen to myself, but it’s just I’ve played them for family and friends.” What do you think? Is Zac telling the truth or does he just keep listening to his own soundtracks over and over again? Let me know what you’re thinking about this.

It is no secret Zac and girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens are continuously dogged by the paparazzi. Zac’s latest idea for dodging them leave his fans screaming “Don’t do it Zac!” According to World Entertainment News Network, Zac said, “I’d love to take a year off and travel the world under the radar. I would love to do it really low-key. “I wouldn’t need to stay in fancy hotels or anything; I just want to explore – but I don’t know how I’d do it. Maybe I’d shave my head to try and go incognito? Yeah, that’s what I’d do.”  I umm don’t want to imagine a bald Efron and I wonder what Vanessa would think. What do you think? Is it worth the freedom from the paparazzi for Zac to shave his head? Let me know.
