News & Interviews for High School Musical
Critic Reviews for High School Musical
Pop fluff intended for kids stuck between Dora the Explorer and Gossip Girl. Consider it a bonus that it's tolerable, if not fun, for the rest of us as well.
There's no denying the tween audience was hungering for this movie, without even knowing it. [Blu-ray]
A simplistic, and single minded teen romp filled with Disney channel regulars that disappears from your collective memory minutes after viewing it...
As a marketing phenomenon, this has exceeded all expectations for a TV movie. However as cinema... maybe you just really need to be a teen to get it.
A schmaltzy little piece of obvious fluff that's directed in truly horrendous fashion and populated by cardboard characters who spit out simplistic platitudes and breathy pop tunes.
Audience Reviews for High School Musical
Cute, fun and my daughter and I had a good time watiching.
Corny, to be sure, High School Musical is most appealing to those below the age of 13, but even older viewers can appreciate the important message the film carries. Despite a few cringe-worthy moments, this made-for-tv phenomenon has relatively catchy and memorable songs and features charismatic, albeit exaggerated, performances.
"Kids today don't know nuthin' bout entertainment! Back in my day we had quality, like Grease and Saturday Night Fever, wit' songs dat meant somethin' and good dancin' too ... dey don't make 'em like dat ennymore! Sniff!" But wait, they do, they do, or at least they did. Grease, again, with hair gel ... instead of Pomade.
