This was soooo not my High School

So I finally broke down and watched High School Musical on Disney this weekend. I had bought the DVD for my niece, who is 6, last year and my sister said it really wasn't that bad. And she was right. Oh, it was so sugary sweet at times that I thought I was going into a coma but... OK, let's break it down. Story-generic. Songs-hit and miss. Dancing. Holy Shit. Those kids were literally flying out of the rafters. Not 5, not 15, but like 50 to 100 kids popping and locking and choreographed within an inch of their life. All in unison. It was a sight. Of course High School Musical 2 broke records this weekend when it premiered. I watched that as well. Second verse, same as the first. But Beware!

Breakout star and certifiable hottie (he turns 20 in October) Zac Efron has a few dicey moments in the sequel. There were a couple of scenes where I could swear I was watching Clay Gaykin. Yikes!

It takes all kinds, I suppose. I found the first positively painful to get through. You'd have to pay me to watch the second.

I appreciate it for what it is, but corniness at that level is just painful for me.

This kids Know nothing about serious theater. They don't sing like me, so they are not stars.
