High School Musical 3: Senior Year

by

The last year of high school is when most teens are confronted by difficult decisions and often become sexually active and experiment with drugs. Not in the world of High School Musical where boyfriends and girlfriends kiss each other on the cheek and nobody ever swears. This squeaky clean flick centers on Troy (Zac Efron), a Renaissance guy who's the star on the basketball team and one of the top drama students, and his significant other Gabriella (Vanessa Hudgens), a drama major who's just got a scholarship to Stanford. They're both committed to each other but have been accepted to colleges separated by 1,000 miles. That conflict, which the two address with all the maturity of young adults, provides the major tension (if you can call it that) in the movie. But these two goodie two shoes lead such perfect lives, they're not likely to elicit your sympathy. And when they break into sappy ballads or conventional pop tunes, they're more than likely to annoy the hell out of you. H
