The young cast is full of charmers with great big voices... These performances win us over when the screenplay cannot.

Audience Reviews for The American Mall


So my girlfriend and I watched this movie because she likes High School Musical. Let me say that even though I can't stand that one either I would GLADLY watch that one over this one EVERY time. This movie was atrocious. The singing is exactly how you expect it to be and the acting even worse. The cinematography is average at best, the sound is off, and the costumes outrageous. The story hardly makes sense and the plot even less than that. Autumn Reeser is in it so I thought "Oh cool, The O.C. girl!" but no, she is terrible in this one. Not as bad as the main characters (and their lame friends) but still bad. The story follows a singing janitor in a mall where an aspiring piano playing singer/songwriter catches his eye. Of course they can't be together or give each other what the other needs to succeed so thus lies the conflict - love or success? With misleading editing, incoherent plot lines and terrible acting makes this movie a TOTAL bust. The reason for the extra half star is because the transitions from day to night are actually pretty cool. However, let this not distract you - it's terrible. Honestly. T-E-R-R-I-B-L-E! Replay Value: 1

This is also a very cool movie and i really like the songs in this movie and It would be really cool to own this movie someday.
