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.
