High School Musical
Troy (Zac Efron), the popular captain of the basketball team, and Gabriella (Vanessa Anne Hudgens), the brainy and beautiful member of the academic club, break all the rules of East High society when they secretly audition for the leads in the school's musical. As they reach for the stars and follow their dreams, everyone learns about acceptance, teamwork, and being yourself. And it's all set to fun tunes and very cool dance moves!
High School Musical isn't the worst thing to came out as some people have said. I thought the movie wasn't that good but lets be honest here we have seen much worse.
The movie isn't insulting like some bad movies out there that are arming for young teens and the movie isn't painful to watch as well. The movie may not be good but it's nowhere near as god awful as people have said.
Rewatched, stretched into widescreen, on an ER waiting room TV with a sad, dehydrated toddler in my lap, which is probably the way this is meant to be seen. Pales in comparison to the third movie; musical numbers are still a cut above any of Hollywood's attempts at reviving the genre on the big screen.
Being a mid-twenties heterosexual male who is at least mildly cineliterate, the title High School Musical should result in my top lip curling up into a sneer and a barrage of withering witty put-downs. Cynicism and general film snobbery should cause this Disney made-for-TV film to elicit uncomfortable shudders and snide remarks, blinded by its reputation before a single note has even been sung. Tween boppers and saccharine songs are a world away from the low-intelligence action flicks and gore-fuelled horrors that society dictates I should be watching and enjoying. Needless to say, having hit puberty some time ago I am not this film's target audience. But it is bloody enjoyable.
The film begins by borrowing quite heavily from Grease…
today at the hotel im staying at they were playing this on the beach and that was great but it was really cold so We only watched and hour then we went back to the hotel room and ordered pizza and finished off the movie but when the pizza was delivered they called me and were like you have to go to the lobby we can't come to your room and The elevator was broken so I had to travel 7 flights of stairs down to the lobby for his Mediocore pizza like wtf orlando get some better pizza and pizza delivery service getcha head in the game orlando dolphin resort
I mean it in all seriousness when I say that The Room is a more well-composed film than High School Musical.
Troy: Callbacks the same day as the game?
Gabrillia: Spring break. Spring break forever, bitches.
Es tan mala que es brutal. Y los números musicales son lo más.
Garbage, but fun when viewed in the right frame of mind.
Felt like a modern day Grease but for a younger audience and so sugar coated I am surprised the fans of these movies aren't diabetic .Didn't think it was horrible but really wasn't good either.think an extended version of a disney or nickelodeon sitcom but with music....
we're all in this together
people dont like this? come on, get'cha head in the game.
ok noah fence but sharpay and ryan's version of "what i've been looking for" was 10x better than gabriella and troy's just saying..................
Thank god I watched this
My roommate at my summer job preferred to rewatch - amongst others - Alvin and the Chipmunks (Tim Hill; 2007) and this film before watching actual films, like 12 Years a Slave (Steve McQueen; 2013), so I figured I ought to give it a fair chance.
Every now and then you stumble upon a film that changes the way you look at film, that changes the way you judge your own merits and talents. The Godfather (Francis Ford Coppola; 1972) is such a film. Requiem for a Dream (Darren Aronofsky; 2000) is such a film. High School Musical is such a film. I always used to think that I was a mere student of the cinematic arts; that I had…
Don't judge me. I grew up with this, liked it then, somewhat still like it now. Yes it's a clichéd mess of a movie, but let me put it this way, the goofiness and corniness of it all is way more tolerable than Camp Rock. Plus it's from the director who gave us Newsies. He crafts decent musical production values.
"We're all in this together
Once we know
That we are
We're all stars
And we see that
We're all in this together
And it shows
When we stand
Hand in hand
Make our dreams come true
Together, together, together everyone
Together, together, come on let's have some fun
Together, were there for each other every time
Together together come on let's do this right"
Ah, the good-times. And yes, I'm still an average, normal straight guy. I'm OK.
