Everyone’s Laughing and Riding and Cornholing and Seeing 17 Again, Except Me

Pam tells me I should see 17 Again.  A movie I was kind of waiting to see on HBO, just because as a principle, I don’t believe in paying to go see Zac Efron.  Pam makes a pretty convincing case though…


Pamela: saw 17 again last night!
legit, really good…
like – go see it
me: hahahaha
i don’t knowww
Pamela: i am not even kidding

me: it kind of depresses me that matthew perry is so old
Pamela: not even a little
eh, he’s only in it for like , 1 5minutes
me: and michelle trachtenberg is older than us, but playing a high school student

Pamela: oh well thats not new
me: ohhh true, gossip girl
Pamela: yah
me: don’t tell me you have a crush on zac efron now?
Pamela: she looks like she is though
i mean
he’s dreamy
no i mean, not in the whole, tweeny-bopper sort of way
but i do like him
and the gratuitous shirtless scene
aka – the opening scene of the movie
me: hahahahahaha
Pamela: whatever
it was good
he is a much better actor than i would have thought
and you wouldnt think there’d be such a range of emotions to a movie like this
but you’d be wrong
wrong i tell you!
(btw blake loved it too, gave it a 92% on the blake movie scale)
wow im pushing this movie more than i would have thought.
So, fine.  Maybe I’ll go see it. But I’m seeing Monsters vs. Aliens 3-D first, because that movie’s set in the city I live in, and, oh yeah! In 3-fucking-D! That’s THREE dimensions.  Three!


To Crush or Not to Crush on Zac Efron

Those eyes, that highlighted hair, that knowing smile. Swooooon.

So, for some inexplicable reason I love Zac Efron. Is it the smile? The greasy, yet sexy hair in his face? The piercing blue eyes? I really have no idea. What’s odd is that I am in no way attracted to him and yet the sight of him makes me go all giggly and smiley, which, quite frankly, really freaks me out. (I mean, he’s skinny, has a kind of high voice and is kind of feminine.)

My sister-in-law believes I’m having a “gay man” moment. Meredith seems to think that he’s “who the 15 year old mel wanted to date”, which is possible, I mean, I was all about Justin Timberlake back in the day AND JT used to have some pretty wack hair, so…maybe there’s a trend? Oh, and also, JT has been on SNL many times and killed it (but he needs to take a break because he’s almost overstaying his welcome but I’m kind of ok with it because he’s cute, seems to have a sense of humor, and, well, is JT). Anway, Zefron was on this weekend and was actually pretty funny, which means he’ll probably be on a few more times in the future. Oh, what wonders The Disney Channel creates. Anyway, I’m willing to put aside all contradictory feelings in honor of Zefron’s upcoming movie, 17 Again.

True or false: When I’m in a bad or sad mood, I watch this preview and my mood is instantly lifted. TRUE. Sure, the premise is kind of dated and predictable, but how FUN does this movie look? I imagine laughing a lot–aaand probably hiding in my sweatshirt from the second hand embarassment of Zefron trying to have “fatherly” moments with Georgina. But I mean, come on. The scene where Zefron gets out of the car, throws on a leather coat over a white t-shirt and jeans, and then casually locks the door over his shoulder? OH MA GOSH. Yes, I realize I’m acting like a lunatic tween, which is one of the reasons why I’m so perplexed over this crush, but I’ll get over it for a few days since I will be seeing 17 Again this weekend and I will be one of many girls squealing as soon as Zefron comes on screen. Sigh.

If my rather long post hasn’t convinced you of Zefron’s awesomeness, please see my completely unbiased and well thought out lists of my thoughts on 17 Again.

Reasons why 17 Again may be a flop:

  1. The really lame and awkward “Oh my gosh I love my family and I regret who I used to be” moments that have to happen
  2. Matthew Perry looks old, which makes me sad
  3. The lack of make-out scenes

Reasons why 17 Again is going to be AWESOME:

  1. Zefron in an ironic trucker hat
  2. The dude from Reno 911 is in it and he’s freaking hilarious
  3. I have a major girl crush on Leslie Mann and she makes everything funny
  4. I saw a glimmer of a song and dance number a la High School Musical 1-3
  5. Zefron shirtless
  6. All the funny parts in the trailer will STILL BE FUNNY if not FUNNIER in the actual movie
