    I agree that Sharpay was in it too much and that it should be way more focused on Troy and Gabriella. The first one was way better. This one was okay, but not quite the same. I am looking forward to seeing the theater release of the third one!

    I did like the movie and I think that it was way better than the first one and My favorite character was Sharpey but she was in the musical too much they should have gave other people a chance.

    The High School Musical Tour was the single greatest stage show I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen the Stones.

    it was great, the songs were way better than the first movie, i almost cried during the break-up song. i really REALLY didnt like the dancing that was going on tho…
    i cant understand why it was so bad if kenny ortega did the choreography.
    oh well… zac efron definately grew up alot between the two movies and i must add that it was a good thing.

    wait a second did someone just say there was too much singing?!
    its called High School MUSICAL! emphasis on the musical part…lol

    they shouldn’t make another high school musical. both of them weren’t good and their acting was pretty bad.
