High School Musical 2 on BBC1 this afternoon

HSM2 posterHigh School Musical has become a phenomenon for Disney – re-establishing the Hollywood studio as a major player in the teen market and making an overnight star of heartthrob actor Zac Efron. The original movie, based on the teenage romance of a jock (Efron’s Troy) and a nerd (Vanessa Hudgens as Gabriella), was a runaway success spawning ice shows, karaoke CDs/ DVDs and so unsurprisingly everyone is back for seconds in this follow-up.

Second time around, the drama revolves around college and how our gang try to stump up the cash to finance such education. As a result of this, Troy is vulnerable to the advances of the scheming Sharpay (Ashley Tisdale) as she promises riches in return for him duetting with her at her country club’s talent show. Cue plenty of poppy songs, spontaneous dance routines and lots of clean-cut teenage angst. This might all sound a bit silly and immature – but that’s the charm of it. It’s a Grease for the 21st Century! Catch HSM2 on BBC1 today at 4.05pm and see the website for more information.
