“Paperboy”: Nicole Kidman Pees On Zac Efron

Is this movie, which just premiered at Cannes, so bad it’s good? That’s the question asked by IndieWire of “The Paperboy,” the new Lee (“Precious”) Daniels movie starring Matthew McConaughey and Zac Efron (pictured). The movie is likely to go down in cinema history as the one in which Nicole Kidman peed on Mr. Efron after saying “If anyone’s gonna pee on him, it’s gonna be me.” Indiewire comments: It ‘is a rare case of serious commitment to outright silliness. The director’s follow-up to “Precious” takes the mold of an investigative period piece set amid racial tensions in late sixties Florida, but Daniels fries the dramatic content with a blazingly absurd grindhouse style as extreme as the humidity bearing down on his characters. It’s possible to enjoy aspects of “The Paperboy” if one assumes a certain self-awareness behind the campier bits, but even then, the movie drowns in an overwhelming barrage of excesses.’
