I finally got a chance to see Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure, the spin-off to the High School Musical series. This movie is every bit as bad as I thought it would be, so if you like watching really bad movies, you're for a treat.
The plot is that Sharpay was the main villain in the High School Musical series. For some reason, now she's a hero. She's the same selfish jerk she's always been, but now you're supposed to be rooting for her instead of booing her. Everyone got that?
Sharpay has gone to New York City to star in a Broadway musical. However, due to a comic mishap, it turns out that her DOG got the role in the musical, not her. Sharpay spends about forty minutes arguing with her romantic interest, the minor antagonist and the main antagonist. Eventually, she ends up starring in the Broadway musical, it becomes a hit show, and she lives happily ever after.
They tried to make it a good plot, kind of. Okay, not really. The problem is that the two villains of this movie are generic Disney channel villains and so is Sharpay. So basically, she's going up against villains who act exactly the same way she does. It doesn't really work that well.
The music in this movie was sub-par. The problem is that that all the songs are Sharpay, singing solo. She sounds better when she has back-up singers, or when she's in a duet. I'm sorry, but she can't carry off four songs all by herself. The best song of the movie ended up being the one where she didn't sing.
Actually, let me talk more about the best song of the movie. It comes from the scene where the two dogs fall in love, to the tune of Justin Bieber's "Baby". And no, I'm not making that up. That was actually a scene in the movie. Watch it yourself if you don't believe me:
...And that was probably one of the better scenes of the movie. Yikes.
All in all, I give the movie a two out of ten. Maybe a one out of ten. There are only a few moments where the movie is actually entertaining. The sparse entertainment comes from random secondary characters; none of it comes from the main character. She tried, but she's just not that interesting or developed of a character.
Maybe one of the entertaining secondary characters will get their own spinoff, and then we'll have a spinoff of a spinoff. I wouldn't mind that.
