I wanted to bring my 9 year old daughter to see High School Musical 3 yesterday, and my 7 year old son insisted on coming even though he didn’t want to have anything to do with the first two movies. Here is what watching High School Musical 3 was like with my children:
My daughter went in sat down, and didn’t say one word for the whole movie. At the end of the film, I asked her how she liked it and she responded, “I loved it!”
My son kept up a running whispered commentary into my ear which consisted of some of these statements:
During a dry spot in the plot: Mommy this is boring. This is soooooo boring.
During a romantic moment between Troy and Gabriella: Mommy this is weird. Why are they so weird?
During the first duet with Troy and Gabriella: Mommy they are good singers!
During the scene where Troy fights with his father: Mommy, Troy is just scared.
During a rousing number with Chad and Troy in the salvage yard: Mommy! This is more like it!
During a scene where Troy hugs his father: Mommy, they are being weird again. To which I responded, why? you hug your father all the time. My son responded with a thoughtful, Oh. Okay then.
Basically overall I enjoyed the movie, but my son’s commentary kind of made it unforgettable 🙂
