Redwarmin This movie is the proof that the world is becoming a sick and dumb place
UnowPriceless hyped garbage
Nessieldwi Very interesting film. Was caught on the premise when seeing the trailer but unsure as to what the outcome would be for the showing. As it turns out, it was a very good film.
Verity Robins Great movie. Not sure what people expected but I found it highly entertaining.
Mandirenfroe I'm a fan of the High School Musical movies, meaning I love the first one and could go without the second and third on my movie shelf. However, what I loved about Sharpay in the first movie was the scenes with her and her brother, Ryan. They completed each other. For example when it was their turn to go audition for the spring musical, Ryan starts to walk ahead but Sharpay stops him and walks in front of him. He let's her, but rolls his eyes behind her back. Without him, it was just be a self-absorbed Diva being non- humorously pushy with everybody else. Which is what this movie was pretty much about. They tried to have her co-star be an adorable puppy, but it didn't grab the audience's heart or attention. In fact, I honestly could only watch about thirty minutes of this movie before leaving the room. Side character spin off movies or television shows rarely work out. They completely flop if you don't include the things that made them awesome to begin with. In this case, her brother.
bkoganbing Ashley Tisdale who played the wicked Sharpay in the Disney High School Musical films gets to put the shoe on the other foot in Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure. By the end of the film you will hardly recognize the vixen of East High.Very few people have been spoiled the way Sharpay Evans was in her adolescence with her rich parents giving her all at her command, except Zac Efron and they made a good try for him. But high school has been over a year and her parents expect her to grow up a bit.Which is hard to do when everything's been handed to you all your life. But her father makes a bargain with her. He underwrites her living in New York for a month to see if she can catch on in the theater. He's in need of a reality check himself, I've known people all their lives who wait for a break in the theater who are talented, but never have the opportunity. Still Ashley Tisdale goes for it.She does get a break, but it's for her dog, a well trained terrier named Boy who is needed for a musical starring Cameron Goodman. She's a grownup version of Sharpay and that's something new for Tisdale. And she's got young Bradley Steven Perry who has the idea his dog should star on Broadway. But she also has a new good friend in film student Austin Butler and who knows if things will turn out SharFabulous.This is a Disney Channel production and no one will ever confuse this with more realistic backstage stories like A Chorus Line, Forty Second Street, or Goldiggers of 1933. But given the Disney parameters Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure is entertaining enough. Tisdale is certainly talented singing, acting or dancing. But I'd love to know, we're there girls out there named Sharpay before High School Musical?
johnstonjames i dunno. what'ya say about stuff like this? especially when you find that for no apparent reason you find yourself liking it. as a 49 year old male i'm disturbed by the fact that i wanted to see this let alone end up liking it. i even purchased this movie at Target. but the only reason i did that was because i defaulted on my credit and bank cards and wasn't able to rent it at Blockbuster Express. even though i really enjoyed this and thought it was wholesome entertainment for little girls, kids should probably be told that stuff like this is pretty much commercial brain rot and is usually aimed at the lowest common denominator. still, i like Disney movies and i'm one of those rare birds that actually really loves musicals. so i enjoyed this a lot. kinda double funny as well since i'm not a 'High School Musical' fan. i like this kind of stuff, but Disney 'HSM' movies are so gooey corny they push the puke factor. besides, everyone who knows knows the 'HSM' franchise appeals more to little kids and babies more than it appeals to older more jaded high school kids.'Sharpay' is the same. it's about a young girl going off to college and a career, but it's primary appeal is mostly for the small fry. i mean Sharpay and some little kid sing and dance cutesy poo songs with little dogs and stuff. heavy baby factor. but still i liked this. the song numbers, although cutesy and aimed at children, were actually kind of adorable and had a lot of ooky appeal if you happen to like kids and little dogs. which i kinda do. plus Sharpay, er i mean Ashley Tisdale, was actually very good and not without engaging talent. Tisdale also has a better voice than Miley Cyrus.look. no one in their right mind can make a argument that this is great filmmaking or contributes anything to society or culture, but it was cute. and it was very wholesome entertainment. more wholesome and clean than much of the kiddie'tainments offered on Nickolodeon.little girls and their baby sisters are in good hands with little Sharpay, so their mommies and daddies needn't worry about this. the only bad influence here is possibly Sharpay's consumer obsession. but that also probably depends on your political viewpoints.as a 49 year old male my main concern is becoming some kind of fem-bot by watching too much girly stuff like this. oh well, nobody is perfect and i hate the whole macho role anyway. Sharpay is right, the meaning of life is have fun and enjoy yourself and don't be too mean about it. hey Boi!! ooky.
Paul Magne Haakonsen Being a Disney movie, you know that you are in for some quality production and the movie does bear witness of that, and it does serve the movie well. But at the same time, the movie suffers under the typical stuff that Disney puts out for the teenagers, and "Sharpays Fabulous Adventure" is no exception.The story in "Sharpays Fabulous Adventure" is about Sharpay Evans going to New York to follow her dream for fame and fortune, but it is her dog Boi's time to shine instead. And we follow the pair on their way to Broadway fame.The acting in the movie is actually good, and there are are some nice characters in the movie. The most interesting performances are done by Ashley Tisdale (playing Sharpay Evans) and Cameron Goodman (playing Amber Lee Adams).Now, bear in mind that "Sharpays Fabulous Adventure" is a movie for teenagers, particular starstruck teenage girls. I wasn't in the target audience, though, but I can say that the movie have potential to hit home with the teenagers.As a Disney movie, I think they actually struck the nail right on the head with this movie, despite it wasn't particularly anything in my personal interest. However, isn't it time that Disney does move on from the carcass that is known as musical movies, haven't it been bled dry already? That might just be a personal opinion, though!If you like movies with lots of music in it, have stardom dreams, and if you are a teenage girl, then "Sharpays Fabulous Adventure" is definitely something just for you.
