Intro for April 20, 2012
Despite really sh-tty reviews, Zac Efron’s The Lucky One is expected to open at the top this weekend with as much as $20 million, unless it’s taken over by a late-surging Think Like A Man, so, you know, totally representative of what women want at the movies these days. And I’m actually not being sarcastic.
It’s interesting to me that Efron keeps looking for his Titanic. Titanic made his mentor Leonardo DiCaprio a mega, mega heartthrob which, ironically, is a professional title he’s spent the rest of his career trying to shake off. Still, Leo wouldn’t have had the luxury of doing everything else he gets to do if not for the massive success of that movie. These days people don’t make Nicholas Sparks movies for “art”. They do it for entirely different career objectives. This is what Zac Efron has decided he wants to be.
I can’t decide.
Have a great weekend!
