I know the demographic is for usually younger kids going into high school but...c'mon really? High school is NOT like this- I seen this movie on Good Morning America and was like you know? why not? I'll watch it. I laughed because Troy's teammates and dad and everyone would not easily accept the idea of him being a singer when they all think basketball is more important. And Gabriella is extremely naive- I mean she's good looking and Troy is the typical jock..therefore he would probably only date her for her looks.
I know I know I am being kind of stereotypical- but they are freshmen or sophomores?- they would crack under pressure as so many freshmen and sophomores do year after year.
