"High School Musical" was cute and the songs much catchier than I expected. I had the notion that the lead actress looked like she'd been grown in the Disney cloning vats, a skillful blending of DNA from every race on earth with a face (not to mention voice) sculpted by the same animators who made "The Little Mermaid" and "Beauty and the Beast."
"Being There" was a bit more cerebral. It struck me as an art film version of "Forest Gump," what with a miraculously lucky, childlike adult being used as a metaphor for the American populace. Definitely not my favorite Hal Ashby film, but certainly very good.
Full night of TV tonight: Prison Break, Heroes, and Studio 60.
