cute =)
12 August 2008 | by jasmbartSee all my reviews

I actually enjoyed the movie... it was definitely geared more towards an older age group, even though majority or the actors are probably the same ages as the High School Musical cast, in some cases they are actually younger. From what I've read... the singing voice of the main character "Ally" is not in fact Nina Dobrev, but a singer by the name of Keely Hawkes Pressly her myspace is as follows... www.myspace.com/keelypressly I thought her voice was cute, had range and was probably perfect for the sound they wanted... she was definitely better than some of the younger startlet singers whose voices are so high that only dogs can hear them. LOL. But I will definitely be buying the soundtrack, the songs are very catchy, and I wouldn't mind re-watching the movie or listening to the songs.
