I’m not going to lie to you. I dig men who are inappropriately young for me. If you are a fan of this site, or if you have ever visited my Cheaper Than Therapy home, this is NOT news to you. I am, technically, 30, but in my mind, most days, I still *think* I’m 20, so liking someone like Chace Crawford or Robert Pattinson seems somewhat less inappropriate. yes?
(if it makes you feel better, I like old guys too. I’m not only a very scary cougar. Sean Penn anyone?)
…and I don’t know…there’s just something about hearing that Zac Efron and Hunter Parrish were in a movie TOGETHER, where, unsurprisingly, Mr. Efron would be donning a basketball jersey once again, that made me jump at the chance to see the Toronto Premiere of 17 Again.
I was expecting to HATE this movie…because, well, didn’t we kind of already see this movie 100 times? It’s kind of like Big meets Freaky Friday meets Like Father Like Son (which, if you haven’t seen, you MUST. seriously) also…there are shades of Back to The Future, in a scene where Efron tries desperately to get his daughter to NOT kiss him.
and, of course, this scene…where the nice guy puts down the BIG BAD BULLY (Hunter Parrish, looking surprisingly un-Silas-in-Weeds-y. sadly) by insulting the size of his wiener…
…ah, yes, THIS we most definitely have seen before, in just one of the best movies EVER, Just One of the Guys, where nice guy Rick puts down the BIG BAD BULLY Greg Tolan by insulting the size of his weenie
ALAS, William Zabka/Greg Tolan/Johnny Lawrence LIVES ON. Johnny, you’re a creampuff!
but, you all, Leslie Mann is in this movie. Leslie Mann is a golden god. don’t believe me? Watch 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up again. She’s awesome.
It’s certainly not winning any awards, but it certainly was a movie I’d watch again. If only for the scene where a 1989’ed Efron BUSTS A MOVE. seriously, it’s perfect.
