After seeing that Troy and Gabriella sad about not talking, they soon support their choices and let them "break free".

A Quick Review: Don’t judge me but I turned to this film when I was ill a few weeks ago as an attempt to cheer me up. And while the feel-good dance routines and cheesy romance between Troy and Gabriella helped a little bit there was no getting away from the fact that it was beyond cringe-worthy. It was unfortunately not as good as I remember it - but that’s probably because the last time I watched High School Musical I was much younger!
If you want a bit of cheese and over the top dance numbers then why not? Otherwise leave it well alone.
Score: 6/10
