Synopsis


High School Musical
The captain of the East High basketball team and the key member of the academic club shock the student body by teaming to audition for the upcoming school musical in a Disney Channel Original Movie that's all about being yourself and following your dreams. Troy (Zac Efron) is best known as the player who keeps the East High basketball team on the scoreboard. Of course, life isn't always about athletics, though, and as Troy slam-dunks on the boards, beautiful and brainy Gabriella (Vanessa Anne Hudgens) is raising the reputation of East High as the key member of the school's successful academic team. Despite their outgoing natures, no one would ever peg Troy and Gabriella as theater types. When word gets out that this popular pair has secretly chosen to reach for the stars and try their luck on the stage, the students of East High are about to learn an important lesson in teamwork while gearing up for a musical performance that will have their audience dancing in the aisles. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Fun Movie, Just Too Ideal

    Posted

    Kids movies are known to be ideal. That's not the problem I have with this movie. The message of togetherness is lovely...and the soundtrack was very fun... however, the plot just gives kids high hopes which will just lead to disappointment. They took ideal to a whole new level, and I have a problem with this because I don't think the intention of this movie was to be enchanting/fantasy. I love DCOMs, but not the ones of the past two years. Think about it. A girl and a guy randomly meet on a cruise, they just happen to sing together, and just happen to be in the same class in the same school shortly after. They're exact opposites... a super popular jock and a quiet nerd... and they come together. They have time to go both to the jock's championship game (and win) and the nerdy girl's math/science (I forgot) meet (which she wins)... and they both land the part in the play. The coincidences are unbelievable. I mean one or two, okay, but everything relies on coincidences. I feel like they could have put the point across more subtley and in a more natural way. Nevertheless, it is a feel-good movie, and their intended audience was just average kids. Kids do love this movie mainly because of the soundtrack and dancing. It's different from most American movies. In most American movies, music is played in the background ,but here, it was made part of the story. The songs overshadow the plot. The plot is just generic and nothing special or different about it. The music, dance moves, and good-looking young stars made it popular. Now for kids, it's all about glamor. And the hype has destroyed any goodness in the movie. High School Musical merchandise EVERYWHERE in EVERY shape and form. It's purely commercial now. As a movie, it's okay, but your kids will like it, especially the girls. Too bad real high school is nothing like that, eh?

    I'm a 40 year old adult and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this movie. And I'm not afraid to admit it that I"ve seen this over 6 times with and without my kids. I've taped the show and have had Korokee parties with my kids along with my friends kids. I'm still going to buy the DVD when it comes out, I'm so crazy about this movie. It brings back memories when we all went crazy over a similar movie, GREASE, when we were young. when I first saw the commercials, I knew that this movie was going to be an "extreme" hit and could not believe our luck that we didn't have to go to the theaters to see it. I was counting the days until premiere day. The dancing, the singing, the music, the storylines, the total package was such a joy to watch. I've also bought the sound track and as another customer has written, it brings a smile and a wonderful feeling when I hear the music.

    Hypnotizing..

    This movie may have have a semi-weak plot, but it keeps kids entertained for ages! I've watched my friends watch this a million times, over and over again, nonstop! It is literally hypnotizing; I'm still singing to these catchy songs, even though this movie was released over a year ago and High School Musical 2 is already here! Overall, this is a pretty good movie, and I would reccommend this to a friend; HSM rocks!

    Best Made for TV movie Ever

    The music is awesome and the dance steps are so cool!! The movie is easy to relate to too! Everyone remembers feeling different in High School and making sure you stay in the right cliche while hiding who you really are and what you really like to do.

    Not too good!

    High School Musical is not a very good depiction of a realistic high school. So many kids will grow up believing that this is the way high school is...it's not. Although some of the songs are good, the plot line is kinda old.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I liked it, my daughter loved it! Better still, best buy was the only store in my area who carries the original movie when everyone else only seemed to have High School Musical II.
