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.

A simplistic, and single minded teen romp filled with Disney channel regulars that disappears from your collective memory minutes after viewing it...

...it's difficult to imagine even the most die-hard fan of musicals finding anything here worth embracing.

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.

For all its ungainliness, its cheesiness, its silliness, High School Musical is undoubtedly a great big heap of fun.

the filmmakers were just trying to tell a story. Sex, drugs and violence just didn't factor into that equation

There's no denying the tween audience was hungering for this movie, without even knowing it. [Blu-ray]

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.
