HSM

This movie was once really popular in 2006 and 2007, now? Not so much. But the movie does send positive messages about following your dreams.

Don't Hate Me Because I am Not Obsessed with It

People are so obsessed with it! (No offence to those poor souls that love it) its just not healthy to be so obsessed with it all the time. I mean they made pens, posters, shoes, shirts, wardrobes, bed spreads so on. All it shows is a bunch of bad acting, dancing and singing like a bunch of wackos. (Some dancing was okay, although I don't like the songs) I don't want to rant or nothing.. okay, yes I do. Well its all people talk about really. Its a con to get little girls to buy their products, and it really has no meaning. For little kids it may be intertaning, but they like to show off and back stab on there. They act like High School is a huge preppy fairy tail that everyone can be popular and nobody can tear you down. I like their energy, but its lies. I am not saying they have to be realistic but they don't have to make up stuff! And they act like THAT is what put Disney to the top. No. Disney is being distroyed. (Go on YouTube *user Magma15x* will explain to you in a funny way) I mean all of the characters are these gorgious popular kids trying to make it to the top with NONstop singing... well, I appreiseate their hard work, I just think I wasted my time watching the movie.. (Forgive me)

Only watch this if you want to stare at Zac Efron for roughly 2 hours.

Aren't there enough of these idiotic tweeny bopper movies out already? Don't Zac and Vanessa look a little old for high school anyway. Besides, the movie is totally pointless. *Sigh*

Umm...I guess its great?

I was begining to feel tired of being like 'huh?' when people talk about High School Musical. So I watched it and thought, 'Hmmmm, this is a lot like Grease!' and apparently Common Sense says it is in fact a modern version of Grease HA. Okay, so yes I thought the "humor" is yes "humorous". The music was pretty good especially "Breaking Free" and "We're All In This Together" KUDOS KUDOS. Overall, I thought it was pretty good better than how others have described it but still not as good as how other's described it either.

I can't believe what i just saw....

First of all they're all SUPER SWEATY! This implies sweaty highschool sex and they do not even follow a dress code! There are cheerleaders! Are you sure you want your child looking at a woman in a short skirt??!? Troy does not set a good example. He plays basketball and drives an old van! Are you sure you want your kids thinking its alright to drive creepy white vans? I think not. Now don't get me started on Sharpay. What a horrible role model. She shows signs of jealousy. And that its ok to be the best if it means doing bad things to other people to achieve that. I am a strong Catholic and believe all kids should be winners! Thank you!

How this Movie Changed my Life

Here's the deal, I'm sixteen. When I first saw this movie back in the day, I thought it was lame, yo. However, now, looking back, I can truly appreciate the absolute cinematographic masterpiece that is High School Musical. Not only the first, but the second and the third. These movies have given me insight as to how I need to follow my dreams and don't let anywhere make me stick to the status quo. Anyone looking for a brilliant movie both mechanically and otherwise should definitely consider High School Musical. The songs are catchy, the characters -- while dramatized -- are relatable, and overall, it's an entertaining experience that everyone can enjoy.

High School Musical

I personally think the movie was great. In 2006 and 2007 the kids I went to school with loved the movie. They adored the characters and the music. The movie was like the old classic Grease but with no drinking,sex,or bad language. The movie may not be as realistic as a regular high school but all the movie is about is following your dreams and that sends a positive message out to kids.

The Best Movie in the Series!

This movie started it all. I loved it. It is 100 percent great. The only concerns I would have is the lead being shirtless, a few 'almost kisses', and some consumerism being with Disney, but almost any Disney program will have tie-ins! Wonderful messages and role models, really good acting for Disney, and it is the best overall movie or program to ever come out of Disney!

wow....:(

This movie is just, wow... Sure it's good for little girls (and i guess odd piticular little boys) but I'm pretty convinced it could brain wash your child. I mean It's truly stupid. It's like "OMG lets break out in song during science class!" I mean come on. Lets be serious with ourselves. I totally believe in children having imaginations, but what's wrong with the simple disney princess movies? We've gone a little to far.

High School Musical

I think this is a hands down appropriate movie. I do think the sexual bond between Troy and Gabbriella is to mature for kids 5 and younger.

Great Songs and Memories

I think this is a very great movie for kids who enjoyed music and have confidence of what they are doing. It has lots of genres such as romance, music, and maybe some changes in their high school. Kids would enjoy the music, probably dance around after they do watch this. It would be a great family time movie too.

HSM STinks like my feet!!

I hate this move so bad i would vomit. I hate there songs,and "perfect' Gabriela. The character Gabriela,is just so perfect,she can do whatever she wants. The songs stink,"We gonna have the time of our lives"and"I.....want.....more!,I AM FABULOUS...." both are spoiled. because we are not going to have the time of our lives, just because you get everything you want! And you want more? OH SHUT IT, remeber in zack and cody you was broke Maddie. And you don't have to sing every dumb thing, on HSM 3 they were all about there future,????WHAT FUTURE,ALL YOU DID WAS SING AND LOVE PEOPLE!!!????
