Watching “17 Again” is similar to eating comfort food. You know it has absolutely zero nutritional value but you like it anyway. It helps when the twinkie in the middle is Zac Efron. “17 Again” celebrates the actor’s coming of age from a singing and dancing matinee idol to a full-blown movie star.
Efron leaves the “High School Musical” franchise just to return to high school in “17 Again.” A fun movie that unabashedly borrowed plot points from films such as “Big,” “It’s a Wonderful Life,” and “Back to the Future.” Read More...

Right after he straightened out Christian Bale in "Terminator Salvation," McG will next face the music with "Spring Awakening" based on the well-revered Broadway show!
Here's some fun facts about "Spring Awakening" from wiki:
Spring Awakening is a Tony Award-winning rock musical with music by Duncan Sheik and book and lyrics by Steven Sater. The musical is based on the controversial 1891 German play of the same title by Frank Wedekind. Set in late-nineteenth century Germany, it concerns teenagers who are discovering the inner and outer tumult of sexuality. The original play was banned in Germany due to its portrayal of masturbation, abortion, rape and suicide. In the musical, alt-rock is employed as part of the folk-infused rock score.
I heard that McG is not asking for any studio backing because he doesn't want anyone meddling with his vision. Good for him!
Still curious about "Spring Awakening?" Here's a little snippet from when the cast visited David Letterman:
