Alright, I don't know why anyone hasn't brought this up yet, but how good was High School Musical 2???
DIDN'T YOU LOVE IT???
I'll be the first to admit that I caught onto the HSM train way later than everyone else, like last Thursday to be exact when I FINALLY saw the originial one for the first time. And yes, I thoroughly enjoyed it like all parents do when watching something intended for their children.
Um, yeah, something happened between HSM1 and HSM2.
That would be Zac Efrom growing up and suddenly looking (dare I say it!) HOT.
I know, I know, I could almost be his mother which makes me want to gag, but if Demi and Ashton can do it...
I think part of why I so enjoyed the second one is because it's much more about the sweet relationship between Troy and Gabriella and I'm nothing if not a total sucker for first loves. And the fact that they are really together makes it so much better. (This would be the true tweener in me coming out.)
The kids and I watched it last night and I'm not too proud to say that by 8 am this morning, I had already re-watched my favorite scenes. The music is fun, the story is sweet, and oh yeah, Efron is hot, in a purely little-boy, could-be-my-neighbor's- kid kind of way.
