The Definitive Ranking of Zac Efron Movies


I don't know about you, but to me, Zac Efron is pretty much the hottest guy alive. Sure, he may not be the best actor of all time, but one look in those baby blue eyes, chiseled abs, and fluffy brown hair and I forget that acting even exists. He broke out as a star with highschool musical, but moved into deeper roles like the one he plays in the upcoming movie, Neighbors. A frat boy learning to cope with the neighbors next door, a stretch for him no doubt.

Zac has done many fine films in his short career but here they are, ranked from worst to best. I've also included how how he is in the movie, because really that's important.

That Awkward Moment
I'm not going to lie, I knew this movie would be garbage but that didn't stop me from going to the theater by myself to gaze at Zac on screen. He basically plays a player that falls for a girl after a one night stand. The movie is just illogical, he would probably never date her, he's prettier than her.

Hot Factor:

New Year's Eve
This movie is basically just a bunch of actors thrown together with no character development. It's not bad but it's certainly not good. It's just kind of fun. But his hair in this movie just does nothing for me.

Hot Factor:

Hairspray
I'm just not a huge fan of this movie/play in general but Zac certainly held his own. In it he plays Link Larken, Amber's (the main character's) boyfriend. I need him to be more shirtless for this movie to be good. Although the dancing is pretty delightful.
Hot Factor:

The Lucky One
He's in the military and searching for his good luck charm after the war. It's a Nicholas Sparks book and it's pretty predictable. A yawner. But of course, he's looking good, although I'm not digging the shorter hair.

Hot Factor:

Charlie St. Cloud
Charlie, aka Zac, can see his dead brother but then he falls in love and has to choose which one: seeing his dead bro or making out with the hot girl. I don't know why but I liked this movie even though it was a little creepy.

Hot Factor:

Highschool Musical (1-3)
Troy Bolton's character won us all over with his triple threat abilities as an actor, singer, and dare I say... dancer. His shaggy Justin Bieber haircut was cool Bieber even sang "One Less Lonely Girl" and Vanessa Hudgens is an idiot for letting this man out of her life. Yes it's corny, but who cares?

Hot Factor: 

17 Again
I nannied in college and took the kids I was babysitting to see the movie. I think my mouth dropped open a few times as I realized that Zac, without a K, was the hottest human specimen alive. He plays a younger version of Mattew Perry who goes back in time to when he was 17. Everyone wanted to be 17 after this movie.

Hot Factor:

Neighbors

I know I have yet to see this movie, but I already know I'm going to like it. The amount of times I get to see Zac Efron shirtless will make the movie for me and I also have a crush on Dave Franco. This whole movie is basically eye candy for me. Whether the humor is forced or not is neither here nor there. It's Zac and I need to see more of him.

Hot Factor: ( I could keep going here but this will do)


And let's do one more for good measure.

Your eyes are welcome. What do you think is the best Zac Efron movie?

  1. bahaha oh how much I enjoyed this post on this Friday morning (a little too much, might I add). thank you helene, thank you, thank you, thank you....i think you get the point! :)

  2. Boy is pretty easy on the eyes...as long as you can kind of block out his acting skills. But then again with abs like that- no one cares about his acting skills.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Hands down, hottest man to roam the universe. He could probably get paid to just stand in a town square or something (do those still exist) I'm just saying, I'd pay to touch him.

  4. Thank you for the Zac eye candy! I kinda feel like a cougar since I'm a bunch older than him but oh well. :)

  6. I'd rate hairspray and High School musical a 1 haha but all the rest great! The boy is fine! I really hope he doesnt (further) self destruct!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I need to admit something to you: I have NEVER found Zac Efron attractive. Mostly because I've always considered him to be 12 years old and have never been able to get past that vision of him in my mind.

    But in Neighbors? HOLY SHIT. He's grown up and now I'm attracted to him. Extremely attracted. Like I might want to lick his abs but that's neither here nor there.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Zac jumping and pouncing around from rocks and rocks singing Bet On It in HSM2?! Be still my heart. Come pounce around some rocks with me. Then afterwards I'd probs ask him to sit down and watch 17 Again so we could laugh and giggle and all that good stuff people do after singing and jumping off of rocks.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I really think your rankings are spot on. Looking at this post makes we realize how lackluster his film career has been. We need more from you Zac!

  11. My love for him is just out of control. I legit have a problem. I cant even watch his movies anymore bc I get so sad that I am not gf. I daydream about him. Its a sickness. This post didn't help my problem. I need like ZE Rehab NO JOKE! I just want to have dinner with him... is that too much to ask!?! I mean, he is my hall pass........ but like lets be real, if that chance ever came up, I would probably start to cry and he would get all awkward and leave me and so it better I just stop right now bc I am getting crazy!!!!

    1. I'm legit just as obsessed. I met him during the HSM 3 promo tour, and I cried the entire drive home. It was the greatest moment of my life.

  12. hahaha this is hilarious. im not a huge fan, but i wouldnt kick him out of bed either. lol. i agree with pretty much all of your ratings, but i mean cmon as if we would believe zac efron would grow up to be matthew perry. he will grow up to be a hotter zac efron. just dont lose the hair, child.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Whoo I'm awake now! 17 Again the the High School Musicals are my favorites. I like when he dances...those hips.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I like him from the neck down. It's not that I think he's unattractive, but he's always looked like such a baby to me. Even though he's ripped, he's just not manly enough. One of my friends loves him and thinks I'm nuts. Maybe one day he'll change my mind...

    ReplyDelete
  15. I want to see Neighbors simply to see what kind of antics they put in there. I spent a little too much time at my fiance's fraternity, and lets just say that the trailor looks pretty accurate.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I know I am some sort of freakish abnormality but for whatever reason Zac reminds me of a male elf, or maybe even fairy. Coming from me this probably sends a confusing message...I don't mean it in a good way.

    ReplyDelete
  17. LOL, i luuuuv this post. Zac Efron IS the hottest of hotness in my HOT MAN hotness list. phew I'm sweating. Although I haven't seen all his movies, my favorite for sure is 17 Again, can someone be MORE gorgeous? i think NOT.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Thank you for this! People always say that he's not that hot, but if I had my choice of celebrity husbands I wouldn't hesitate before choosing Zac Efron. I've heard that The Neighbors is really good.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Thank you for the morning eye candy!!! His hotness made sitting through "That Awkward Moment" bearable - and I'm a sucker for The Lucky One, I like my boys sensitive and tormented OKAAAY?! But damn his abs, and smile and hair....

    ReplyDelete
  20. I've never any Zac Effron movie, I'm afraid it will ruin the fantasy. That said, he is one super fine bunny.

    Happy weekend! <3

    ReplyDelete
  21. The Lucky One is definitely my favorite. That is the movie I would have given infinite hot factor "fires" for. But I've always been a fan of short hair. :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Loved this post!!!! Definetely a complete hottie!!! Thank you for this on this friday morning.. :)
    I actually loved the Lucky One, total sucker for Nicholas Sparks movies.. heheh..
    I do want to watch The Neighbors, I have a total crush on Dave Franco too..

    ReplyDelete
  23. hahah oh Zac without the K when did you grow up?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm in love with James Franco!! So even if Neighbors sucks it is great eye candy.

    ReplyDelete
  25. haha this is great! He did grow to be one sexy bit of boy. I am excited to see the movie just because all the previews show him shirtless.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Are you ready to defriend me.... I've never seen any of these movies. But that just means there is less Zac Efron competition for you, right!?! This is a really cute post, can you make one for Ryan Reynolds next?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Well that was just yummy. Thank you for this.

    ReplyDelete
  28. i'm quite certain this is the best blog post ever in the history of blogs and posts. i have long been ridiculously in love with zac (yes, we're on a first-name basis), and i totally agree with you that he was at his hottest in "17 again". i may or may not have seen that movie in theaters like 8 times and then also bought it the day it came out on dvd. too bad that he is young enough to make my attraction to him borderline creepy... haha

    ReplyDelete
  29. I agree with your hot scale....we were watching Jimmy Fallon the other day when he was on and he did a skit dressed as a girl and my husband was like "he's already a good looking guy...but he's even a good looking chick!" LOL

    ReplyDelete
  30. He's had me since Highschool Musical. Swoon.

    ReplyDelete
  31. He's hot. I saw that Nicholas Sparks one but nothing else.

    ReplyDelete
  32. let me just go take a quick trip to the office bathroom after seeing this....

  33. This is exactly what I needed to get my weekend started. Thanks Helene!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Whelp... Based on this list, looks like I'm gonna be watching Neighbors tonight haha! Happy Friday Helene!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I just realized I haven't seen, like, any of his movies. Why do I love him then? Oh, right. Because he's pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  36. God bless you, Helene. Gooooood bless you. This post is amazing. Thank you SO MUCH for the shirtless eye candy on this Friday morning. I needed that. Zac is definitely the hottest man alive and I've loved all of his movies for the sheer fact that he's in it (Although 17 Again was a really good movie and I still watch it over and over because it's hilarious).

  37. He is so DAMN hot!!!!!!!!!!! Don't forget in The Lucky One you get to see his butt. So I think it should go up a notch in hot!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I remember when my little sister had the biggest crush on Zac Efron during his HSM era and I was not feeling him. Now I realize my sister was one smart girl because he is absolutely beautiful. I am going to see Neighbors this weekend and can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Charlie St. Cloud was when I was like hot damn he's hot, wait is he even legal?! Phew ok. Drool! He is adorable. The Lucky One was a good character for so it was endearing.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Swoon. That man is the definition of fine.

    I'm going to have to spend all weekend watching these movies again.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm absolutely in love with Zac Efron and can't wait to see Neighbors :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. The awkward moment, agreed. She was not cute! He was definitely doing it for me though! And Hairspray, he makes me swoon in that role. I love love loveeeee Link! 17 Again might be my favorite Zac movie. Other than the HSM series, because that’s where my love...errr, obsession started.

    Look up The Paperboy and Me and Orson Wells…Efron’s weirdest movies.

    As a freaking crazy Zac Efron fan girl, I approve of this post.

    ReplyDelete
  43. BOW CHICKA WOW WOW..

    Thank you for making my Friday afternoon a heck of a lot better with this post :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh such a good list and what a creative topic and holy eye candy. I loved 17 Again. And I'm figuring I'll love Neighbors too. Such a hottie that Zac.

    ReplyDelete
  45. oh dear lord that man is hot.. at first i felt weird saying it bc hello disney channel but that shirtless pic WOW!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thanks for making me drool... Not going to lie, he's probably the only reason I want to go see the Neighbours, and it will be by myself because I cannot fool my husband when I ask if he wants to see it with me because "it looks good".

    ReplyDelete
  47. I saw this post title in my Bloglovin' feed and knew it was going to be a good day. Excellent ranking system, although I propose we start a "body hotness" category and a "hair hotness" category because his bod is bangin' in The Lucky One but his short hair is not. Thoughts?! :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. anyone that knows me knows that Zac is my number one. I love him so much. this post is my favorite ever. LOVE.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love everything about this. I should probably just mention here that I once stood 12 inches from Zac for 5 hours as a last-minute extra in HSM3, so yeah... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Drool central right there. Yumm

    ReplyDelete
  51. YES, yes and yes. Guess where I will be Saturday night? I had a guy that lived next to me in college that I called Zac Efron behind his back because he looked quite similar. I swooned over him in the elevator.

    ReplyDelete
  52. So, I've never seen ANY of these movies. But now I want to binge all weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I love this post. And he is THE HOTTEST in the lucky one. That one takes the cake. And then Charlie St. Cloud. Man the SEXINESS of him in both those movies. YUMM

    ReplyDelete
  54. I was not a big fan of him after the whole high school musical thing, that was until I watched 17 again and now I can't get enough. He is so incredibly attractive! There was a whole segment on E! News like a week ago about his abs, it was glorious!

    ReplyDelete
  55. lol the only one I've seen is the 1st high school musical. Sorry!

    ReplyDelete
  56. YES! Haha, his movies aren't usually the best, but I sure think he's nice to look at! You nailed this. Thanks for the laughs. :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Those abs!!!!

    I haven't seen most of these movies, but I sort of kind of loved 17 again....

    Have a great weekend

    ReplyDelete
  58. I loved this post hahaha so agree. Him in Neighbors is going to be killer!!

  59. Zac Efron is just prettier than most girls in general.

    I fell in love with him in HSM and it has only grown since then. He is simply beautiful and Vanessa must have lost her mind letting those abs and eyes go.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Oh lord. Zac Efron is almost too perfect looking. I'd ruin my (non-existent) chances with him by being too intimidated of how pretty he is. I knew a guy like him in high school, just absurdly good-looking, and even his cheeks were always perfectly flushed like he was wearing blush. Dave Franco is pretty cute too though.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I will love him forever. Now I must go watch some Zac Efron movies.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Sweet mother of everything that is holy... that is a BEAUTIFUL man. Good. God. Seriously. *drool* 17 Again is my favorite but I can't wait to see his new one! Don't even care what it's about! haha

    ReplyDelete
  63. This has to be illegal! I feel way too old to be watching this boy/man/hot specimen/adonis
    gah!
    Well, i just finished watching Neighbors and although it was somewhat funny, i still like That Awkward Moment a bit more, and Charlie St. Cloud, just made me want to move to Maine, or wherever the movie was made.
    HAWTness!

  64. 17 Again was SO GOOD. Zac E is one good-looking specimen of a man. Even though apparently he's addicted to some type of illegal substance.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I love this!!! And who doesn't love Zac? He is gorgeous!!

    xo, Taylor

    ReplyDelete
  66. Omw, Zac is my latest obsession. He is incredibly beautiful and I will keep watching movies that he stars in, despite the storyline! I'm glad that you share my sentiments re: That Awkward Moment, she was not pretty enough to catch him in a one night stand lol....

    ReplyDelete
  67. Hahahah you crack me up, he's definitely easy on the eyes :) I haven't seen like half of these movies but I CANNOT WAIT to see Neighbors...I also like little Franco! It's crazy how much he looks like his brother!

    ReplyDelete
  68. All I got from this post was Zac Efron shirtless...I hope you didn't intend for me to read much of it. Drool...

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hairspray is the only movie that I saw and I forgot that he was in it. ZE ranks pretty low on my hot-o-meter (pass me a nerdy guy, please).

    ReplyDelete
  70. Boy have i missed out out some Sexfron flicks during my time in Germany *hot*hot*hot*

    ReplyDelete
  71. blech- i never liked zac untiiiiiil- the lucky one. then he stole my heart.. so i might watch one or two of these. new years eve was so dumb. too many actors and the worst story line.. just bad.

    ReplyDelete
  72. 17 again is probably my favorite Zac movie!

    ReplyDelete
  73. the lucky one.... woo buddy. & neighbors is the best movie ever. already watched it twice. & of course Zac E is sexy as ever in it!
