Tisdale was so charming that she won viewers' hearts even when playing a snooty character. Tisdale definitely has a sense of comic timing, but it was poorly utilized in this uninspired sequel. She hasn't headlined a movie since. Interestingly enough, Thorne reportedly had no dance experience before being cast. Three years later, the actress was no longer a Disney regular. The big conceit is that everyone thinks her tomboy character is a male until she goes from ugly duckling to swan.
OK. Brazil grew up in the Lula government, but his big intention was to have a socialist Brazil in 30 years. He wanted his party (the PT to stay in power forever. He made agreements with all communist parties in Latin America, supported communist dictatorship in Venezuela and Cuba. Brazil was growing, but misery in the northeastern region of Brazil continued and was masked by its advertisements.
