Or did they join a cult? Do they play triplets in this movie? Help us out here.

We like Dave’s suit the most, but the fit’s a little weird. It does’t look like he can button the jacket or raise his arms. Plus the pants need hemming. Seth’s fit is terrible and the footwear makes us angry-shouty. Awful. To our surprise, Zac takes this one by default, even though he looks like he just woke up from a bender. But he’s the most put together with the best fit.

Now really, boys. Wear some color next time. We promise no one will think you’re gay.

    • RussellH88

      Very boring, no?

    • Glam Dixie

      Those shoes Seth is wearing are tragic. Zac definitely looks the best by a long shot.

      • juniper

        Seth’s shoes are tin man/ robot status and making me sad. There are such pretty clothes in this world. The choices for pictures of famous people puzzle me.

        • SugarSnap108

          Yes, it looks like he hit them with Krylon silver spray paint.

    • Sara P.

      Seth looks like he’s waiting for someone to drop $5 in a hat in front of him, at which point he will do a terrible version of The Robot.

      • Imasewsure

        Needs grey face paint as well to complete that look (and earn my dollar!).

      • Kent Roby

        or sing “Slide Some Oil To Me”

    • @Biting Panda

      The Pretty One, The Funny One and The Douche’s Brother. Not a fun, creative or hot moment, from any of them. For shame.

      • another_laura

        oh dear, I was afraid that he was related to That Franco, and now I see that it’s true.

        • demidaemon

          Yes. Tlo’s comment reminded me that I thought JF had a gay brother? isn’t this the one?

      • misstressofsylar

        Zac is slowly but surely losing the pretty due to his hard partying ways. If that’s his end goal here, then congratulations to him.

    • marlie

      As much as I hate to say it, Efron wins this round. I like Franco’s suit and the navy tie, but the pants are too long and the jacket is too small. And Rogen just needs to go home.

      • Sarah

        Every time the commercial for this movie comes on, I say to Mr. S “I REFUSE TO ACCEPT EFRON AS A GROWN MAN.” I have no excuse for that, I just associate him with tween-y fawning and dislike him for really no reason. That’s why I hate to say that I agree that his suit is best. Nice pants hem! No hands in pockets! I will, however, reserve the right to dislike his salute. It is almost a finger-gun.

        • demidaemon

          Have you seen his abs in the trailer though? Those might be able to change some minds (including mine!).

          • Sarah

            Yes, duly noted. He is still too much of a kid for my tastes. That awful movie with him and some other infants dealing with schmaltzy love-life troubles that was his last project nauseated the heck out of me with its commercials. At least this one looks watchable, in a drunk party kind of way.

            • demidaemon

              I clearly have blocked any remembrance of that movie out of my mind. Was it based on one of those awful Nicholas Sparks books that, if they had been written by a woman, would clearly be marked as romances and not what they currently are (I assume literary or contemporary fiction but do not know for sure since I avoid them like the plague)?

    • TrixieConQueso

      Um. Is Dave having a “Jon Hamm Moment” in his pants?

      • Glam Dixie

        I hope that’s just a shadow, that’s so tacky. But having a Jon Hamm moment in his pants made me laugh.

      • MartyBellerMask

        Zac appears to be!

    • Capt. Renault

      Not to bang this gong again, but — belts.

      • demidaemon

        Keep on banging it until it is cacophonous.

    • Anna

      LOL, I love how the suits look cheaper and worse with each scrolldown. Zac’s looks pretty good and then Seth’s and Dave’s were the “Get 2 Free” part of the promotion.

      • PinkyAndNoBrain

        I’m thinking it’s the waistcoat, maybe? Everything looks better with waistcoats. Suits, tuxes, ball gowns, pajamas, everything. (Unless that’s just a vest, in which case I’ll show myself out and spend hours staring at the two until I can tell the difference.)

        • Anna

          I don’t know what the difference is either, but agree that whatever it is is really working!

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Does Efron have any idea how stupid that hair looks??? WHY?? Little Franco is a cutie… little bit of hot young tom cruise.

      • marlie

        That hair is one of the things that sets my “Douche Alarm” off on that one.

      • MartyBellerMask

        He’s such a little cutie otherwise. But the hair is a dealbreaker.

    • MilaXX

      Pretty boy Zach takes this one. Is Seth’s short too small? It’s distracting to see it upbuttoned like that & why the tiniest of knots in the tie? I also wish he had gone for some color in the tie and left those shoes home. Completely agree that Dave’s suit looks too tight for any sort of range of motion movements.

    • Tanya Wade

      My Three Gray Sons.

    • http://www.beautifymylifeblog.com Jessica

      I’m usually embarrassingly into Zac, but between the oddly pale skin (maybe exacerbated by the darker hair?) and Jersey Shore blowout, I’m not feeling it. And the barrage of gray is a serious fail across the board.

    • decormaven

      Gotta love that Mr. Noodle is in the background. Yes, I’m 12. As for style, I don’t see much here.

      • MartyBellerMask

        I totally scrolled up looking for Bill Irwin. :(

    • Sarah

      The Franco’s suit looks too small. It enhances his little-brother-tude.

    • SugarSnap108

      From the neck down, Efron wins hands down. The suit actually fits. Which is the most exciting thing I have to say.

    • KendraMR

      When I scrolled down to see Seth’s shoes, I thought, “Is he auditioning for the part of Tin Man in an updated version of ‘The Wizard of Oz’? What the hell, man!”. Lil Franco’s suit would have been great if it wasn’t too tight and he wore a belt. And then there’s Zac being Zac with douchey hair.

    • dmkava

      I think Seth’s shoes are awesome

      • kimmeister

        I love them, just not with a gray suit.

    • Vicky

      Why are Seth’s shoes grey as well? He looks like he walked past a construction site and a gust of wind blew concrete dust all over him. Terrible.

    • Call me Bee

      Dave’s suit looks like it was made from homespun–with no linings. The pieces have no shape and are wrinkling and sagging even as we speak.
      I don’t mind the grey color so much–it’s flattering on all of them and looks spring/summery without looking too casual. I love me a well made grey shoe on a man (my obsession with Fred Astaire, I guess…) but Seth;s look like dyed construction boots. Not good.

    • Froggae

      Zac Efron, hands down. Even though it looks like he is working hard to unpretty his face.

    • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

      Zac’s stylist: “Correct hem length on pants? Check. Proper ratio of shirt cuff to jacket sleeve? Check. Not too tight? Check. Tie properly knotted? Check. Zac, have you shaved? (voice from in front of mirror: Yes, dear.) Check. Zack, don’t pose with your hands in your pockets, OK? (voice from in front of mirror: Yes, dear.) Check. Well, my work here is done. I hope Tom & Lorenzo approve. And those other guys, and their stylists? Bite me.”

      • demidaemon


    • Jessica Freeman

      I think Zac wins this round.

    • Wink

      Netflix presents “Gray is the New Black.”

    • Nancer

      Wow – this shows you how truly unimaginative stylists are for male stars! Though there is some doubt that Seth had a stylist. Or at least not one that understands fit. This is really pretty funny! Male chorus line….

    • MerBearStare

      Seth Rogan’s shoes make him look like the living statue that’s outside of my office building.

      • Miss wks

        hahahahahahaaa…good one!

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      Well, at least they didn’t all show up in jeans and t-shirts (though that probably would have been more fitting for this awful-looking movie)

    • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

      I really don’t understand very young men in three-piece suits.

    • ashtangajunkie

      Didn’t Diaz, Mann, and Upton just do this, but in white?

    • alyce1213

      Between Zac Efron, Ian Somerhalter and Rob Lowe, I don’t know who the hell I’m looking at. Aren’t they all the same person at different ages?
      All these boys should be sent home.
      P.S. Looks like another movie you couldn’t pay me to see.

      • Jacob Bowen

        Wow, I never would have made that connection but you are eerily correct.

      • ShaoLinKitten

        There is a very creepy David Cronenberg movie waiting to be made from this concept.

        • alyce1213

          What an idea! I still haven’t gotten over “Dead Ringers.”

        • Tess Tea

          Indeed!! That I would pay to watch.

      • MartyBellerMask

        You can add Rick Springfield as the eldest.

    • Jacob Bowen

      Boring. Zac Efron’s pretty does nothing for me in a suit, and he doesn’t look all that great.

    • cocohall

      Seth Rogen is a walking cartoon character and I mean that in the best possible way – he’s like Yogi Bear in a suit. As such, I find the shoes pretty much perfect. I can almost hear him saying “Look at me – I am the human equivalent of an unmade bed – we cannot hope to change this fact of nature, so let’s just go nuts and let me wear silver clown shoes.” Baby Franco at least looks like he showered and washed his hair, so a step up from his brother, but yes; find a belt. Zac Efron just makes me sad. You could see this coming even during the HSM days – he always looked uncomfortably aware of the deal he was brokering with the fame devil. His clothes look fine, but you can’t help but wonder about his sobriety in these pictures. He doesn’t look healthy. I feel for the guy. My girls were in the demographic sweet spot when those movies came out and they loved them some Zac. But they matured and have zero interest in him now; it’s all Benedict Cumberbatch and Chris Evans.

    • Danielle

      I burst out laughing at Seth’s shoes. Way to commit, buddy.

      • boweryboy

        I actually like his shoes, just not in this instance. Now, with a pair of jeans they would look cool.

        • Danielle

          Agree, they’d be totally awesome in a casual outfit. Just not with an all grey suit.

    • boweryboy

      Sloppy messes. All of them.

    • kmk05

      I have seen the trailer for this and I have never been so angry that I couldn’t fast forward in the cinema. It has to be some of the worst dreck in years!

      • KT

        Nope, it’s fantastic. 100% on rotten tomatoes, just so you know.

        • kmk05

          Ha. Ha. I just hope it’s because no one has seen/reviewed it, so the default is 100%? I can’t imagine otherwise. It looks like a terrible slapstick comedy from the 2000s.

          • KT

            No I’ve seen it and I assure you it’s hilarious. It screened at SXSW and it got a HUGE reception at its premiere the other night. Just sayin!

    • Mrs. C

      Note to Seth Rogen: learn to tie a windsor knot. Thank you, that is all…

    • KT

      They’re fucking with us, and I’m sure this was all Seth’s idea. I’m also sure that he is intentionally wearing an ill-fitting suit and horrible footwear. And while that would be annoying from anyone else, it just makes me love him more. Zac and Dave look SO douchey, dear god. This movie is hysterical, btw.

    • lunchcoma

      It’s not really a surprise to me that Zac looks the best. Whatever is going on in his personal life, he’s almost always dressed in suits that fit and aren’t wrinkled and look like someone put some thought into them. Given how many men show up looking wrinkled and awkward, it’s often going to be enough to win one of these contests, even though he probably did just wake up from a bender.

    • LadyVimes

      Are belts not “in” anymore? They all look rather smarmy, but I agree that Zac’s looks like he put the most effort in. Dave is wearing the more interesting fabric though.

    • malarson2

      Zac Ephron was so ridiculously cute in the first High School Musical movie that most Moms on the Block that I knew when it came out were knocking their daughters over to get a good look at him. Here, sadly, he just looks bloaty.

    • e jerry powell

      Yeah. Something is not right with Franco’s thighs. The pants are unhappy with them.

    • FibonacciSequins

      I want to burn Seth’s suit in a fire, shoes included. Those shoes are like the male version of Barbie shoes – plastic and a color that matches the rest of the outfit. But I love Barbie shoes and I hate Seth’s shoes. So confusing. The unbuttoned shirt and twisted tie, ugh. His publicist should have forced either him or the producers to invest in a tailored suit and decent shoes.

      Linen trousers get baggy (not to mention wrinkly) and should not be worn on the red carpet.

    • FridaStaire

      I find it hard enough to tell male actors apart at the best of times. This is just cruel.

    • gefeylich

      Zefron is the Rob Lowe of his generation.

      Dave always looks weird to me – like a pretty James Franco impersonator (which I guess he is). And I have no words for Seth, other than “schmatta.”

    • malarson2

      Only 47 more and we’d…have…50 shades of…I know, I know. So obvious. Although, if we throw in the shades of each one’s skin tone we’d only be 44 shades away.

    • http://www.lippsisters.com/ Deborah Lipp

      What the hell with Seth’s TIE?

    • ThaliaMenninger

      Are they working for the same airline? Here are your flight attendants on Gray Skies Airlines…

    • Pablo

      Zac is looking everyday more like a wax figure, what’s going on there?

    • Fannie Wolston

      A triple shot! Zac’s on his way to an exec meeting, Seth is going bowling, and Franco is headed to the racetrack.
