High School Musical Reviews
Its an average movie with average acting, yes the singing is good but you shouldnt have high expectations for this movie!
At first glance, Zac Efron looks like the worst actor in the movie. His acting is forced, laughable, and just plain bad. I wouldn;t hire that guy for a freaking ELEMENTARY SCHOOL PLAY! But still,l guess what. He's not even the worst!! No that title would go to Ashley Tisdale. Imagine the acting of Zac Efron, Channing Tatum and Paris Hilton combined and you've got Tisdale. And second of all, she's ugly. Which got me thinking "Why did this woman get into Hollywood?" Not exactly sure.
But alas, the acting is just the tip of the iceberg for this monstrosity. The realism is next up. Here's a lesson to the 8-11 year old's who wrote all the good reviews here. HIGH SCHOOL IS NOTHING LIKE THIS!!! Nope. We don't sing and dance for no reason, we aren;t just divided into jocks and nerds (There are other people too), we don't have endless hours of freetime (try hardly any) and we do not, do NOT paint giant pictures of out jocks in the gym! That just doesn't happen kiddies, it just doesn;t happen!!
Now let's move on to the "plot". I'd like to say it's a plot, but it's more like a bunch of random words piled onto each other on a paragraph. The script is weird, crappy and idiotic, and if the lines aren't forced, they're pretty much non existent.
But the worst thing about this film is not the realism, not the acting, not the cheese, and not even the "plot". The worst thing about it is the publicity. Ick. In 2006, everyone was OBSESSED with High School Musical, mainly because it was the "cool" thing to do. How it became cool in the first place, I'm not sure. Bottom line, if you have ANY taste in movies, avoid this abomination like the plague.
High School Musical is "Grease" for a new generation. It's about a dude named Troy (played by Zac Efron) who falls in love with this chick named Gabriella (played by the beautiful Vanessa Hudgens) through music. There's just one problem: he's the captain of the school's basketball team and she's a nerd. They're two different people with entirely different characters.
High School Musical is a fun, sweet, and original movie with great music, and a good moral that teaches kids to believe in themselves and be who they want to be.
The hype may be annoying but High School Musical is worth a try.
"Good job, playmaker."
