Long ago, roughly 7 years, a group of middle aged white men, got together in a house, probably somewhere far far away from Hollywood, rolled up their short sleeve button down shirts and mused, "What do kids like these days?"
And one of them said, "My daughter likes that Zac Efron punk. Also musicals. With teenagers."
And with a snap of the fingers, Sunday School Musical became an official thing and this week's Netflix find.
That's not what happens here.
There's a choir from a "urban" neighborhood and a choir from a "better" neighborhood. One is by the book and terrible, and the other is really in touch with their funky hip hop selves. Given that this is a movie called Sunday School Musical, start putting your bets on them uniting. Because it will pay off.
"Teenagers like it when you come together. Its in that song from that movie your daughter likes."
To say this movie was made on a budget is an understatement. The painfully handscrawled banners and the poor sound design alone...
It happened. Because the filmmakers are "hip".
With all the care and love that was lavished on the story, apparently there were some filmmaking details that got left in the dust....
High School Musical wasn't the only thing that got ripped off. A Grease moment totally happened here in this high school that only has 8 students in their roster.
At that point, the makers of Sunday School Musical patted themselves on the backs and knew, they had reached a generation and they're teenage children would finally accept them as one of their own.
Stay tuned for when these intrepid filmmakers realize that teenagers like vampires and release Sunday School Twilight. It is going to be so fetch.
