Neighbors Blu-ray Reader Giveaway and Article Featuring Shirtless Hunks!

**This is a sponsored post. I will receive the product(s) mentioned in exchange for this post. All opinions are 100% my own.
http://www.amazon.com/Neighbors-Blu-ray-DVD-DIGITAL-UltraViolet/dp/B00K89VBV0/
I'm pretty excited about the Blu-ray and DVD release of the hit comedy Neighbors - coming out on September 23rd!  Enjoy this article about Shirtless Hunks like Zac Effron that you wouldn't mind having as a neighbor!  Psst... You can also enter to win a copy of the Blu-ray below!



ZAC EFRON! AND OTHER SHIRTLESS HUNKS WE’D LOVE TO BE OUR NEIGHBORS


We get it, Zac Efron. You have perfectly chiseled pecs and broad shoulders and every single ab possible for a man to possess. Not to mention those little lines below your hips that basically form a giant arrow pointing down to your…. But you’re not the only guy out there with a hot body!

On September 23rd, you can finally take Zac Efron home with you in all his shirtless glory when NEIGHBORS comes out on Blu-ray and DVD. In the mean time, here are a few other film hunks we wouldn’t mind being neighbors with.

And while you’re perusing/ogling be sure to enter our sweepstakes to win your own copies of XXXX along with Neighbors on Blu-ray!

CHRIS HEMSWORTH – RUSH


In all fairness, we pretty much could have included any of Hemsworth’s roles here, but who can resist a bad boy who drives fast AND has arms that would make most tree trunks jealous!?

FREDDIE STROMA – PITCH PERFECT



It was a fleeting moment, but a magical one indeed, when Freddie Stroma (or Cormac McLaggen for you Harry Potter fans out there) lifted his sweater to reveal a set of abs that were—dare we say it—pitch perfect! Cue the choir of angels; or at least awkward collegiate a capella singers.

JAKE GYLLENHAAL - JARHEAD


The only thing sexier than a man in uniform might be a man out of uniform. There are plenty of shirtless Marines in Jarhead, but Gyllenhaal is the one we have our sights set on. The infamous Santa hat scene will have you wishing it could be Christmas all year round.
 
JEREMY RENNER – THE BOURNE LEGACY




All eyes were on Renner as he took over the popular Bourne franchise from fellow hottie Matt Damon—but shirtless moments like this one helped make the transition a smooth one.

AARON TAYLOR-JOHNSON – KICK ASS 2


If they make a third movie, may we suggest changing the character’s name to Kick Abs? ...or Kick Pecks…or Kick Triceps…. You get the idea.

JAMES MCAVOY – WANTED


A big part of McAvoy’s sex appeal has been his quick wit and dry British sense of humor. But you can’t deny that the lad muscled up quite nicely for a turn as an action hero alongside Angelina Jolie!


CHRIS PINE – SMOKIN’ ACES
 
 
Before Smokin’ Aces, Chris Pine was mostly known for family faire like Just My Luck and The Princess Diaries 2. But there’s nothing kid-friendly about the redneck punk attire (or lack thereof) he sported in this role.

RODRIGO SANTORO – LOVE ACTUALLY



Poor Rodrigo--sitting there on the bed, working SO hard to look sexy—only to be ignored by Laura Linney. Come here, Rodrigo. We’ll give you a shoulder to cry on.

BRAD PITT – MEET JOE BLACK


Brad Pitt’s career reads like a brief history in shirtless cinema. When it comes to on-screen skin, Pitt is definitely an O.G. in a class of his own. There are countless roles we could have chosen, but Joe Black is Pitt at his finest…and his acting is okay too.

And just because we can’t resist, here’s another gem of Zac Efron as frat boy Teddy Sanders in Neighbors. You deserve it! 



Pick up your own copy of Neighbors on Blu-ray (including a new alternate opening, gag reel and hilarious deleted scenes) on September 23rd!


BUY IT:

You can pre-order Neighbors on Amazon for only $20.44 for the Blu-ray combo pack.

It’s friends first for Strawberry Shortcake and her favorite gal pals in Berry Best Friends! When Orange Blossom’s general store overflows with a new line of fruits and veggies, she tries to handle all of the details without any help from others, and, as a result, she’s exhausted! Strawberry is excited to be building a new marketplace, but has a tough time learning how to graciously say, “no, thank you.” Both soon learn that talking about what you need is the berry best thing to do. When the BFFs form a new band called Strawberry and the Sweet Beats, they’re all jazzed to head out on the road...except for Orange, who is afraid to admit that she doesn’t want to leave home.
