Like the burnouts who stick longer than their leather jackets warrant, the shtick has gotten stale.

Will certainly resonate with its targeted preteen demographic, as its principal cast has returned for a sequel appropriately enhanced for the big screen.

A generous, upbeat film that provides lively, unthreatening entertainment for young viewers...

I'm glad I didn't pay full price to see this, but it is not a bad way to pass some time in a bargain theater or a cheap movie rental.

Audience Reviews for High School Musical 3: Senior Year

Just like one and two a fun time for my daughter. She loved it and was dancing in front of her seat during the show.

Super Reviewer

It's senior year and the students have to make choices about college and love. Cheesy and innocent fun.

Candy Rose

Super Reviewer

Actually a good movie, much better than the first 2. This movie was fun, some better music and a nice story. The acting has never been good in this movie, so their record stays the same there. For once, a High School Musical I can enjoy.
