Fleetingly campy and sleazy at the opening and closing, The Paperboy is ultimately too boring during the middle hour of the film to leave any sort of lasting impression outside of the film's most bizarre moments.
We talk to the dreamy Zac Efron and British actor David Oyelowo about their latest film, the controversial The Paperboy, working with director Lee Daniels, acting period appropriate for the 1960s, and the whole "getting peed on thing" that everyone has been talking about.
