high school musical redux

December 13, 2008

We watched the third installment on the first screening day.    My son was a bit excited as we watched 1 & 2 a number of times – he’s 4 btw and loves music. As others have pointed out, it’s a bit like Grease without the sex. As Monique Coleman (i.e. Taylor) says, it’s not like that – where Grease was about conforming, HSM was about being true to yourself – what high school aught to be but is not.   As my wife points out, 3 is a bit musical and i think that’s where the comparisons lie.  i was bored but i am not the key demographic – tweens are.
