This movie was very PINK and quirky. Sharply from High School Musical goes on a journey to become a famous Broadway star. She has some competition. She has never had i experience what the real world is like. Basically she has one month to become a star or else she comes home and works for her dad. She runs into some issues on the way to become a star. If you like High School Musical than it might like this movie. Especially if Sharpay is your favorite character. 6/10 — What’s in this movie? Kissing - One kiss

This title has:

Great role models
Too much sex
Too much consumerism

Very cute and PINK spin-off!

This is a very cute and fun spin-off to the High School Musical movies! I've always loved these movies and got pretty excited when I heard about this one. Sharpay is a little bit of a diva, but I think you can expect that if you've seen the HSM-movies. Except for that it's pretty much a "villain turn good"-story which I think is good and that the kids will really enjoy. This movie may not contain as much music and dancing as in the other movies, but again it's a spin-off and its still fairly good songs enough. Ashley Tisdale delivers once again an AMAZING performance as Sharpay, both in acting and singing! Very cute and fun movie for the whole family, especially if you're a fan of the HSM-movies. And any girl who love pink fashion and design will totally love it! :D
