I can’t remember who recommended this movie to me, but it must’ve been someone I really, really respect because it’s the kind of picture I just about never watch. And yet, there it was on my Netflix queue and up it eventually showed so I dutifully put it in the machine… and you know what? Not bad. I almost turned it off after the first ten minutes, but then it got kind of amusing and even had moments that were downright funny. Plus I had never seen Zac Efron before–or if I had, I hadn’t noticed–and just thought of him vaguely as that gay guy from High School Musical, but you know what else? He’s good. He can actually handle comedy, which is tough. And I have no idea or interest in what his sexuality is, but he played straight convincingly here. So it’s a cute move with excellent values and a change of pace for me. Just saying.
