Ashley Tisdale Goes Back To High School In 'Picture This,' On DVD July 22
"When I read the script for Picture This, I just fell in love with the lead character Mandy, this goofy, unpopular, girl next door who knows what she wants, but isn't willing to sacrifice who she is to get it," said Tisdale. "Mandy's real and I think a lot of kids will relate to that. It reminds me a lot of when I was in high school. I wasn't really in the popular group, but I wasn't in the nerdy group. I was somewhere in the middle, too."
Executive Produced by Tisdale's "Blondie Girl" Films and directed by Stephen Herek (Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead), Picture This features Tisdale as Mandy Gilbert, an unpopular high school senior who lands a date to the biggest party of the year with Drew (Robbie Amell; Cheaper by the Dozen 2, American Pie Presents: Beta House), the school's hottest guy. Only problem… she's grounded! With the help of her friends and her new, must-have video phone, she'll have to outsmart her overprotective dad and Drew's ex-girlfriend, in a crazy, adventure-filled day that proves popularity can come and go, but good friends will always be in the picture!
Featuring a rockin' musical performance by Tisdale to the hit 80's single "Shadows Of The Night" and laugh-out-loud performances from Kevin Pollak (The Usual Suspects, A Few Good Men), Lauren Collins ("Degrassi: The Next Generation," Charlie Bartlett), Shenae Grimes ("Degrassi: The Next Generation") and Cindy Busby ("Heartland"), Picture This is presented widescreen format and is loaded with extras including two featurettes, scene-specific cell phone text commentary, behind-the-scenes footage and an exclusive trivia game.
