Why does this movie exist? Why is there a series of High School Musical movies at all? They are nothing like real high school musical productions and in fact the way they present high school is nothing like high school is actually like at all! No sex, no swearing, no drugs, no alcohol, no real problems at all. Boo hoo these poor kids! What kind of ultra rich fantasy world is this where they can afford such high production values? The songs are all bland and awful. The performers are at least a little talented (most of them anyway) but nothing special and most are only in it obviously because they have a certain look or maybe know someone or maybe their parents do. The High School Musical movies are all bland and totally pointless.
