The Zefron

I have avoided watching any of the High School Musicals because well, let's be honest, they looked fairly stupid and lame. And I LOVE both high school movies and musicals, so it takes a lot for me to say that. After much whining, though, Lorri finally convinced me to watch them. O.k., actually if we're being honest here, all she did was suggest we have a HSM night and watch all three. I didn't need much convincing because hello . . . Zac Efron! So here are my thoughts about the phenomenon that is the High School Musical trilogy.
  • They definitely get better as you go along. The first one was o.k., the third one was (depending on your definition) a masterpiece.
  • I don't like Vanessa Hudgens. She irritates me and I can't figure out what kind of voodoo magic she has performed to get Zac Efron to go out with her for the past couple years. He should probably end that.
  • Besides the Zefron, my favorite character was Ryan. I would watch the movies just for the looks on his face. The looks were especially entertaining in the second movie during the Hawaiian-themed number he and Sharpay did. (BTW, Sharpay? Really? Way to name your kid after a dog, 'cause that won't get her made fun of or anything.)
  • There was waaaay too much bronzer going on. I'm not going to point any fingers (Zefron), but seriously.
  • Rumor is they're planning on a fourth one, but with a different cast. I'm not sure how I feel about this. Zac IS High School Musical. Anyone else would just be Adrian Zmed compared to John Travolta. (Grease and Grease 2-don't you know your trivia!)
M'kay, so that's it. I take back (almost) every bad thing I said about the movies. I would definitely recommend them as long as you're going to watch all three.

I admit it, I have seen all three! My favorite was #3...I took my primary class (even the boys went) cause I needed someone to see it with me...just fun!
