High School Musical Review

For a really long time I've been wanting to see the movie, High School Musical. I could never find a good excuse to buy the movie. I didn't think my husband would appreciate receiving it for his birthday and there always seems to be an animated one on the list to get for the kids. My sister knows me well and she just happened to send it to me for my birthday. Go sister! Mr. DVD player decided to start working again this weekend, so I sat the kids down this morning and we watched High School Musical. The movie has been hyped a lot since it came out. I've read all about Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron in People Magazine and I am up on their real life romance. So, did the movie live up to it's expectations? It was cute. The characters were good looking. The storyline was sugar sweet and likable. I saw Thayne from So You Think You Can Dance in it. That was kind of cool. It was a modern and more innocent version of Grease. I was a little disappointed with the dubbed singing. It was obvious that Zac and Vanessa don't quite have the quality voices compared to those of Olivia and John. The movie brought back memories of my high school years as a cheerleader. I never busted out in song and dance at the end of a basketball game, but it looked like fun. It was a nice movie and I would watch it again and perhaps even participate in the sing-a-long version. Now I want to watch the sequel and get ready to watch the audition TV show for the third movie on ABC. Yes, my life is that boring.
