Parents and anyone beyond adolescence will find it an intolerable attempt to cash in by imitating films they've seen before.
For us grinchy adults out there without children to sedate, the whole thing feels slightly less like a movie than like the filmed record of a mutiny at a juvie talent agency.

'Standing Ovation' isn't a movie. It's an endurance test for anyone over the age of 13. (Parental Review also available)
I had never heard of the people in Standing Ovation before I saw it, and I hope never to hear of any of them again.
Standing Ovation will have its work cut out for it at the viciously competitive box office, but the film may serve as a springboard for the eager and able talent on display.
