Film critics have spoken, and their message to the new bromantic comedy "That Awkward Moment" is, "It's not us, it's you. " The majority of reviewers agree that although "Awkward Moment" has a likable cast, led by Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan, the movie leans too heavily on cliches while its raunchy gags fall flat. The Times' Betsy Sharkey says , "The issue is not with the premise per se" - the premise being that three 20-something New York buddies make a pact to stay out of serious relationships.

That awkward moment when you're asked about rehab on live, national television? Yeah, that's what happened to Zac Efron on Tuesday.  The former Disney star hit the "Today" show with his costars Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller to promote their upcoming raunchy rom-com, "That Awkward Moment. " And host Savannah Guthrie somewhat appeased those who have been keeping up with Efron's escapades, specifically reports that he had been to rehab for a drug addiction. "I know last year was a little bit hard," Guthrie said.

During the quiet Super Bowl weekend, Zac Efron's new R-rated comedy, "That Awkward Moment," will likely sack "Ride Along" and Jason Reitman's new effort, "Labor Day. "  Written and directed by first-timer Tom Gormican, the raunchy "That Awkward Moment," from Focus Features, is expected to gross $12 million or more in ticket sales through Sunday in the U.S. and Canada, which would be a solid result for a film that cost just $8 million to produce.  ...

TORONTO -- In another example of the upside-down world celebrities can create at the Toronto International Film Festival, it was Zac Efron who attracted huge crowds of mostly young women to the Princess of Wales Theater for the Sunday premiere of the new film by Ramin Bahrani, director of “Chop Shop” and “Goodbye Solo.” Not exactly the filmmaker's usual demo, as Bahrani himself said onstage while introducing the film with his producers: “You...

Ever since the “High School Musical” series concluded, Zac Efron has been trying to distance himself from his days as a teen pinup. But his first major drama, 2010's tear-jerker “Charlie St. Cloud,” didn't do much to cement his reputation as a serious actor: The movie earned tepid reviews and didn't make a significant dent at the box office. The 24-year-old is hoping things will finally change with “The Lucky One,” the Nicholas Sparks adaptation coming out Friday in which he stars as Logan, a soldier trying to track down the subject of a photograph he believes kept him out of harm's way during wartime.

Has Zac Efron been to rehab in recent months? That was the word out Tuesday from unnamed sources, alleging to several media outlets that the "17 Again" actor had wrapped up treatment about five months ago. Efron, whose newest flick, "Parkland," debuted at the Venice Film Festival and recently was screened at the Toronto International Film Festival, walked the Toronto red carpet for the film this month. "He's healthy, happy and not drinking," one source told E! News , which first reported the story.

"That Awkward Moment," starring Zac Efron, Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller and many beddable beauties, is technically about the moment when a woman wants the relationship to be something more and the guy walks away. What "Awkward" is theoretically about are the ways that moment gets dicey when guys figure out they actually care about the females in question. But what "Awkward" is actually about, albeit unintentionally, is how passing off misogyny for comedy has gotten so terribly passé, as insulting to the guys as to the young women.

The "Bound 2" parodies keep on coming! This time, Seth Rogen has teamed up with his "Neighbors" costar Zac Efron to spoof the explicit Kanye West and Kim Kardashian music video and simultaneously promote their upcoming comedy.

NEW YORK - She knew they were waiting to hear from her - Channing Tatum's millions of fans. It had been more than an hour since LaQuishe Wright had posted a photo of the actor on his Twitter account, dressed in a suit "Headed to the Zeigfield. " Now she and Tatum had arrived at the "White House Down" premiere, and Wright needed to give his followers another update. So as he began walking down the red carpet, posing for photographs and greeting reporters, she stayed close by. Glued to her iPhone, she was barely noticeable among the melee, a diminutive 38-year-old in an airy halter dress flanked by hulking bodyguards, publicists, studio handlers.

Zac Efron , who seems to be in every other movie these days, still found time to pick up a home in Hollywood Hills recently for $3.995 million.

Shari Belafonte's home is a castle. And she has just listed her unusual home in the Box Canyon area at $1.26 million, The Times has confirmed. The distinctive residence, built in 1956 and called - appropriately - the Castle, is described as a cliff-top “feudal fortress” on Realtor.com . Set on six acres, the 3,465-square-foot home features steeply pitched roofs, three fireplaces, a turret gym (perhaps a modern take on a torture chamber),...
