114: ‘We Are Your Friends’ Starring Zac Efron, Wes Bentley, Emily Ratajkowski




America’s love affair with EDM ended before it even began as the film-going public rejected We Are Your Friends like a monkey kidney.

Having it star Zac Efron probably didn’t do it any favors in the club-hopping community. The movie scored the 3rd worst wide-release opening in box office history, thereby marking the first time a velvet rope has been used to keep people in and not out.

But what went wrong? Allow us to walk you through it step-by-step, beat-by-beat, scratch-by-scratch.

It’s Reel Spoilers 114 – We Are Your Friends.

You’ve been warned.

Starring: Tom O’Keefe, Joe Buttice, Kevin Brackett
Run-time: 1hr 05min
