What can I say, I am a music lover, but this is not music, this is Zac Efron singing about shit we dont care about.

I have a soft spot for musicals and Zac Efron. Even if I didn't, this film would still be great. The songs were as catchy as ever and I loved all of the sequels. 'High School Musical 2,3' all make you smile uncontrolably, make you want to sing and dance a long and cry with happiness. Great film.

"High School Musical 2" is a bright and shiny musical. Sure, this is extremely cheesy, though it's higher production values help keep it from the level of hokeyness the first film reached. The numbers are more elaborate and the songs are catchier, while the acting is still green; but you can see the actors starting to come into their own. With a sunny setting and just a generally happy attitude, you can do worse than this cute Disney romp.

First of all, the film should be called "Summer Vacation Musical" because the film's characters aren't in high school for most of the movie. They are working kitchen duty at a country club owned by the snotty Sharpay Evans.

Trilogies sometimes have a weak entry and this is the weakling of The High School Musical Trilogy. It was kinda bubblegum and aimed too much at younger kids and not really tweens. It's a teen movie that really dosen't have drama in it. Its more of a happier movie.

The songs are not as good as the first but very toe-tapping.

High School Musical 2 is fun and worth watching but is not the tween movie you'll see.

"It's summer, everything changes."

Not that good, but I've never been a fan of musicals anyways, so don't go from what I say!

The songs are a bit better. The acting is slightly more bearable, as is expected just by virtue of these young actors having another year's worth of experience. Still, no. But I've come too far, you know? I'm committed now. I have to see the third one and be done. Oy...

This is much funniest, wonderfully songs and awesome dance sequences than the first one. Some lines are hilarious - especially from Ryan (Lucas Grabeel) and one of the funniest scene is definitely Sharpay (Vanessa Hudgens) & Troy's (Zac Efron) rehearsal.
This sequel movie is different than the first one, but it has all what made its predecessor so memorable, great music, simple story, beautiful cast and a heart.
P.S.: Monique Coleman looked little overweight in this sequel only except the first and third High School Musical series.

Load of ol' bollocks. Continues to pollute the minds of the youth with a ridiculous notion that things are going to turn out great. Though there's nothing wrong with this, it does it in such a sickening charmless way it's oblivious to its own irritating nature. This only makes it more irritating. The songs are slightly better, only just, and the acting seems better, possibly due to actual friendships developing within the cast. Unfortunately the extended running time only adds to the torture as opposed to advancing the film. There are many more feel-good films that aren't so tragically soul destroying out there. Watch them.

Not an improvement from the first movie, but a decrease I think..
the story was worser, the cast did a great lip sing but not for their acting...
the song was more catchy but forgottable, it's not like 'Start Of Something New'
or 'Breaking Free' which is lovely and great... I just can't imagine they still
want to make the third movies... If they do, I just hope a better story, a better
performance from the cast, and the most important thing is of course a better song...

Not as good as the first but still kept me entertained. A little more grown up than the first and that worked fine.
