People are driven to do crazy things when they are bored . Take me for example , i was bored in Melaka and while the whole family went out to the temple i staid back at home . At my grandmothers house they have a huge ass aquarium , i honestly think fishes are the most useless pets . why u ask ? well its simple THEY DO NOTHING . Yes you stare at them they stare back at You . You hit the glass they swim away but only to swim back 1 minit later . Trust me this is only amusing for the first 10 times u do it then it gets boring . I should know as i did it , because they were the only things alive in the house for me to annoy . So of course i turn to they one things that never fails to amuse me THE TV.
As i was flipping channels guess what show was playing . yes people the highly anticipated show of the summer ... the show that the whole world is crazy about "HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2 !!!" I didn't even watch the first one but i thought what the hell lets see whats driving people so crazy about it . I was not disappointed it was the most hilarious show i have ever watched . i swear if they asked me to write a review on it this is how it would be:
" it was like watching a bollywood movie .... only with white kids "
Oh god !! it was barely 10 mints into the show and already i heard 3 songs and they sing it at the most abrupt-est times . The kids all excited for their summer break to begin , their at their last class their teacher is droning on about something and suddenly the bell rings what do the kids do ? SCHOOL'S OUT SCREAM AND SHOUT ! why sing of course , isn't it the most natural thing to to . And suddenly the whole class jumps up and start singing jumping on tables the their school is over and of course as it is the most natural thing to do , the whole school joins their happy song .
Sureeee didn't ur last day of school look like that . Why imagine the same scene only in our own Sekolah Menegah school in Malaysia , its the last day of school . Their bored waiting for their class to be over and when it is , our hero well lets call him Zeki Effran , gets up and starts to sing and dance :
" Mari kawan kawan sekolah dah habis ! mari kita menyanyi sama sama !!!! "
And whats the teachers response to this ?
"ZEKI DAH JADI GILA KE ! PERGI JUMPA GURU BESAR! "
Yup my friends i don't think high school musical scenes will be playing in the Government school near you any time soon . Oh and speaking about the stars of it , well Zac Efron no matter how blue his eyes were , annoyed the heak out of me . I mean the so called "Villain" if the show was out to seduce him this summer , and she did everything but strip in front of him to get his attention , showering him with gifts (which he took of course ) sticks to him like glue 24/7 and our hero of course remains oblivious to the fact that she likes him . And half the show all u could see was him was prancing around ur tv screen singing one stupid song after another. ( which I'm still humming right now) .
And of course since its a Disney show it had to be wrapped up in bubblegum . Zac and his on screen gf Vanessa what'sherface had so many of those "almost kisses" . All i was screaming at the tv was
" GET A ROOM ALREADY " BUT NOOOO those too continued to have more of those "almost kisses" and gazing into each others faces adoringly (see picture and barf) . It was so sweet i think i got diabetes just looking at them .
OOOoooo and not forgetting Vanessa our heroine , and her "i-am-going-to-smother-you-with-sweetness-till-you-choke-and-die" attitude annoyed me till no end too . god it was like she had no life of her own without her knight and dancing armor . And her annoying wave when she sees her bf , don't get me started it was so so so so so perky .
And not forgetting the supporting cast , the African American dude with the big hair (pic) , well in one scene they were trying to convince him to dance with them in this talent show or something and he was all so adamant saying "NO ! No Way , There is No way in hell I'm gonna dance " (well he didn't say hell Disney wouldn't have been to happy if he did) making a HUGE fuss that he didn't want to , when guess who was dancing on tables and singing at the beginning when school was out . And of course what more sane and rational way would they use but to convince him to dance with a , yup you guessed it a SONG !!! i mean isn't that what you would do too . So there he was DANCING mind you and singing along with the other idiots on how he DIDN'T WANT TO DANCE. And the whole time i was there on the sofa laughing my head off. Yes i think i scared the fishes too .
I think the only person in the show who didn't annoy me was the so called "villain" who was supposed to annoy everyone with her bratty attitude , i think she acted really well . Well to be honest at that point my family came back and i was talking to them and totally forgot to watch the ending . I'm sure this is one show with no surprise ending , so i didn't loose any sleep trying to figure out if Zac really did end up with Vanessa in the end .
Well PEople after my review i have only one thing to say to u guys :
GO WATCH HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2 BECAUSE IT ROCKS !
ah Disney would be so proud of me :)
