Critic Reviews for High School Musical
Although the plot's not particularly novel, writer Peter Barsocchini's script maintains the fantasy elements while incorporating topical and relevant themes into the story.
It would be unfair not to salute the movie's message about broadening one's horizons and not being limited by stereotypes or peer pressure. But when an admirable message is packaged in such treacle, it just makes the message seem treacly, too.
Mostly, High School Musical makes an appealing case for an idealized vision of high school, where individuality is celebrated and even the mean kids know everyone's name.
High School Musical is kitsch, sexless and hopelessly clichéd, but it manages to offer a giddy sense of fun to a generation that's overdosing on seriousness.
Sure, it has its flaws... but the film skilfully crafts an exuberant uplifting climax that results in a warm smile-inducing feeling that remains after the credits have rolled, and sometimes that's all a film needs to do.
Audience Reviews for High School Musical
Corny, to be sure, High School Musical is most appealing to those below the age of 13, but even older viewers can appreciate the important message the film carries. Despite a few cringe-worthy moments, this made-for-tv phenomenon has relatively catchy and memorable songs and features charismatic, albeit exaggerated, performances.
"Kids today don't know nuthin' bout entertainment! Back in my day we had quality, like Grease and Saturday Night Fever, wit' songs dat meant somethin' and good dancin' too ... dey don't make 'em like dat ennymore! Sniff!" But wait, they do, they do, or at least they did. Grease, again, with hair gel ... instead of Pomade.
The soundtrack is enjoyable and is an entertaining movie to a point, however if this is supposed to be the best of teen movies then thats very sad! Its an average movie with average acting, yes the singing is good but you shouldnt have high expectations for this movie!
