Mandy was a teenager attending high school, with her friends Alexa and Cayenne. she was often bullied and embarrassed by the popular girls led by Lisa. Lisa's boyfriend, Drew also happened to be Mandy's crush. Mandy lived with her overprotective father Tom. with her 18th birthday coming up, she wanted her life to change and to be noticed by Drew. she applied to join the swimming team where Drew was in. she was accidentally knocked unconscious and fell into the pool, waking up to find Drew giving her CPR. they started to talk where Drew took interest in her.
Ashley was less stunning being Mandy than Sharpay, but it was indeed refreshing to see her as the shy girl instead of the popular one. the plot was slightly predictable, but remained entertaining and fun. the familiar father-daughter relationship made the film believable, especially Tom with his overprotective fatherly role. which made him almost as lovable as Mandy!
