Zac Efron is in full "career resurgence" mode following the solid reviews and box office-busting performance of Neighbors last weekend, which must have reminded the folks upstairs at Marvel that there was a perfectly good set of abs wandering around Hollywood without a superhero franchise to call his own.

At this point, the familiar line to trot out is, “Well, there’s something for everyone!” However, if the critics are to be believed, this is only the case if you have low standards for animated films.
