Yes, the film was so successful that these days you can hardly throw a stone in a middle-school playground without hitting a kid with a High School Musical backpack (much field-testing has proven this correct). And it’s easy to see why. The movie is packed with tuneless, un-catchy songs that leave your mind the moment they’re over (even when you’re sitting in a prison cell for throwing stones at middle-school playgrounds). It’s also jammed with exciting basketball action, depicted as authentically as your grandmother might describe the game, assuming your grandmother has never seen basketball, or even part of an episode of SportsCenter. If you can say only one thing about High School Musical, it’s this: the movie is set in a high school and contains a musical!*
A bored and domesticated Shrek pacts with deal-maker Rumpelstiltskin to get back to feeling like a real ogre again, but when he's duped and sent to a twisted version of Far Far Away—where Rumpelstiltskin is king, ogres are hunted, and he and Fiona have never met—he sets out to restore his world and reclaim his true love.
After a little white lie about losing her virginity gets out, a clean cut high school girl sees her life paralleling Hester Prynne's in "The Scarlet Letter," which she is currently studying in school - until she decides to use the rumor mill to advance her social and financial standing.
