I was a little embarrassed to admit that I wanted to see the movie simply because I can’t help but adore Vanessa Hudgens of ‘High School Musical‘ fame. Which is the same reason I went to go see ’17 Again’ earlier this summer (Zach Efron). Fine. I’m shameless.

It might even (gasp) make you feel all inspired and warm and gooey inside. I loved it. Go see it.
