Ashley Tisdale in Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure (2011)

Meagerly Blonde

After performing an irritatingly bubbly number at a local talent showcase, Sharpay Evans (Ashley Tisdale) is approached by an agent who thinks she has got something special and Broadway beckons. Except what Sharpay doesn't realise until it is too late and she has moved to Manhattan that the something special is her pet Yorkie Boi. Despite the knock back Sharpay will do what ever to give Boi his chance at stardom including becoming the assistant to the shows producer.

I think so far in my life I have watched maybe 15 minutes of the first "High School Musical", that is it and so had little idea as to who this Sharpay character was although I had heard of Ashley Tisdale. But knowing nothing about this Sharpay character didn't make "Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure" any more palatable as it is obviously aimed at 11 year old girls or there abouts and for anyone else it is both annoying and overly familiar.

What I will say is that right off the bat director Michael Lembeck shows us what to expect with a bubbly musical number which grated on me and has that airhead element which makes this feel like a "Legally Blonde" spin off. And as Sharpay makes it to the city and finds herself in a run down apartment with a Murphy bed rather than the luxurious one she wanted you know she will end up close to the guy she meets in the street who helps. Sorry for the lack of detail but within 15 minutes of the movie starting it had become familiar and so annoying that I stopped listening out for names.

In fairness I have never been in the target audience for this sort of movie and whilst there was a time I enjoyed "Legally Blonde" it was a long while ago. I still think that "Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure" is a bit too over the top, too blonde it probably will entertain 11 year old girls who like Ashley Tisdale, think Austin Butler is cute and find the tricks of Boi sweet.

What this all boils down to is that I am sure there is an audience out there for "Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure". But unlike other movies aimed at a more youthful audience this one did nothing for me what so ever.
