Another Disney movie with music in it...!
9 April 2011 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

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.
