So, we all knew it was going to happen. Yeah, that's right. Young Troy Bolton has finally grown up. I knew, and I mean I knew, Zac Efron was going to be one of those guys to watch out for. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time when I saw 17 Again.
The glimmer of a real dramatic actor showed up in 17 Again when Mr. Efron read his "letter" out loud to his wife in the court room. I said to myself, self this is it, we've got ourselves a really good actor right here. And I was right!
Charlie St. Cloud follows Charlie's (Efron) life (or lack thereof) after he loses his little brother in a car crash that was partly his fault. I won't spoil too much but I will say that he meets his little brother, Sam (played by Charlie Tahan), everyday in the woods next to the cemetery to teach Sam how to play baseball like he promised.
