Zac Efron's "The Paperboy": AN INSTANT CAMP CLASSIC

From Deadline:

"One critic said “it could be so bad it’s good”. Another compared it to the kind of exploitation pictures Roger Corman regularly turned out."

"Efron... spends a lot of time running around in his jockey shorts in the movie (at one point even dancing in the pouring rain in his tighty whities with Kidman)..."

Sounds like Lu-Lu Fishpaw!

I cannot wait. It sounds like Kidman goes completely over the top and I'm going to love it.

Cusack continues to bring his bad karma wherever he goes...

Zac Efron dancing in wet tighty whities is sure to be a draw. No doubt it got the attention of McBongo who's in the same film.

by Anonymousreply 505/24/2012

I wonder if McBongo and Zak had some daddy-son roleplay during filming. Hot!

by Anonymousreply 605/24/2012

I had no idea Zac was so short. McBongo is only 5'8ish.

by Anonymousreply 705/24/2012

Says Efron is 5'8" and McBongo is 5'11"

by Anonymousreply 805/24/2012

Zac is short? I thought he was tall. Can't wait.

Why don't he and Ryan Gosling remake Brokeback Mountain?

by Anonymousreply 905/24/2012

Dear Lord.

Who is SO desperate to make Zac happen?

by Anonymousreply 1005/24/2012

BWAHAHAHAHA! Are those heights from IMDB?

Go look at the EW Magic Mike photos, if McBongo is 5'11 then Matt Bomer is 6'3" and Joe Mang is 7 feet tall.

It's the "Twirl" of the 2010s!

by Anonymousreply 1205/24/2012

The surprising thing about the photo at r5 is that McBongo actually looks clean. He must have just done his monthly shower and shave.

i cannot wait to see this movie!

So that really means Efron is 5'5" and McBongo is 5'8". Never go by 'official' heights for actors.

by Anonymousreply 1505/28/2012

Zac will never happen. Not now, not ever.

He should find a decent TV job.

You will get to see a big bunch of Efron's pubes

This is Showgirls 2012. Zac is Nomi & Nicole is Cristal.

by Anonymousreply 1805/28/2012

did McBongo play sweet music on Efron's bongos?

by Anonymousreply 1905/28/2012

Doesn't Zac Efron get pissed on by Kidman? I think I'll pass.

Love the poster, but I'll wait till it comes out in On Demand.

The Paperboy is getting not so great reviews at

"A lurid, florid, humid, flaccid and insipid waste of time and money for the audience and for everyone who made it."

Paperboy got a 5 min standing ovation from the Cannes audience and Zac Efron had tears in his eyes ..because he thought he finally made it as a serious actor...

what he didn't realized is the critics had a separated screening and hated the movie..

by Anonymousreply 2405/28/2012

There were a lot of bad movies at Cannes this year and the American films were an embarrassment.

Sure they did...Zac!

So...when does this open again??

by Anonymousreply 2805/28/2012

Everything gets a standing ovation at Cannes. It means nothing.

But call me crazy but this actually sounds entertaining.

by Anonymousreply 2905/28/2012

There is a video of Zac crying because of the standing ovation..Poor kid.

The Paperboy: The Movie Where Nicole Kidman Pisses All Over Zac Efron's Face And Chest

by Anonymousreply 3105/28/2012

The audience loved "The Paperboy." Could it be that the critics don't count? The critics hated "The Sound of Music" but people are still watching it a half century later.

Zac is twenty five years old. Twenty five years don't have pubic hair anymore.

NY Times Review: "A Hot Mess"

by Anonymousreply 3710/04/2012

I saw this tonite on pay per view. I liked it and surprised about the bad ratings. McBongo played a tortured closeted guy.

by Anonymousreply 3801/24/2013

Just watched it -- deliciously campy and Nicole chews the scenery like she got a new set of teeth.

I loved every minute of it -- except for the alligator guts, for which I had to look away.

by Anonymousreply 3901/27/2013

The movie left me agog!

by Anonymousreply 4001/30/2013

I just saw it last night. Zac in his tighty whities was great, but seeing McBongo trussed up like a turkey with his abused ass in the air from a trick gone dangerous was the highlight.

by Anonymousreply 4101/30/2013

Zac is finally a STAR!!

by Anonymousreply 4201/30/2013

Damn, it's not available for streaming at Netflix.

by Anonymousreply 4301/30/2013

So did Nicole REALLY piss on him for real in the movie? If so, that's fucking gross. Sad that someone would rather be literally pissed on in a film than come out of the closet (if he really is gay).

by Anonymousreply 4401/30/2013

So how long until Zack is doing golden showers porn for Michael Lucas?

by Anonymousreply 4501/30/2013

I thought Zac did a decent job. He had nothing to be ashamed of other than being in an overwrought campy movie.

by Anonymousreply 4601/30/2013

OK, the first half of the film - up through the hilarious golden-showers scene - is campy fun, but it goes downhill afterwards. You really don't care about any of the characters (except the housekeeper played by Macy Grey - she's actually the best thing in the movie), and Lee Daniels' direction is so inept it's impossible to know what the hell is going on.

Kidman is a hoot though - she looks like Ann-Margret in KITTEN WITH A WHIP. The hands-free sex scene in the prison room is a jaw dropper (and not just on Kidman's part).

by Anonymousreply 4704/21/2013

Would have been better if McBongo had pissed on Zac's baby face instead of Nikki Cruise doing it. Too bad they didn't show more of what happened in McBongo's motel room. I'd loved to have seen those two black peckers sliding in and out of his shaved hole and mouth. A nice Florida-style spit-roasting.

by Anonymousreply 4804/23/2013

I just watched this on Netflix. I hadn't read or heard anything about the film prior, and though surprised by the content I enjoyed it. I thought everyone was entertaining and held their own as actors. I was surprised by each of their performances. Zachary Efron was good and earned his place as a serious actor. The film makes you think and it is is shocking if not lurid.

about those tighty-whities...

how crappy Cusack is outside of the "teen" genre.
