What we have to remember, is that this is a "wholesome" movie from the Disney stable. There's nothing in this you'd be worried about your kids seeing.
For entertainment value, it has plenty. It's very colourful, and it's got some great dance setpieces - a couple of them almost instant classics.
Another reviewer has put that this is full of "20-somethings pretending to be 14". Someone there who obviously failed to check the facts - as a search on IMDB shows the average age at filming to be about 18/19. A far cry from Grease and certain 80's movies where grizzly adults pushing 30 were pretending to be of schoolage. For obvious reasons, it's hard for a filmmaker to get young kids to do complicated acting, and filmmakers nowadays have sure improved on yesteryear. As by the subject, I'd guess these character are supposed to be 15/16, I guess they haven't done badly at all.
Mentioning Grease, it's easy to see the comparisons, where the kids are getting excited about watching this movie, but this is - as already said - no Grease. Grease was good for it's day, but it's now an old movie, still good - but old and it's lost it's relevance for kids. Here we have a movie for today.
It's a simple feelgood movie aimed at 9-14 year olds, but with subject that many over and under that age will also enjoy. I wouldn't buy it for myself, but it's something I don't mind in the background. It's no "The Godfather" or "American Beauty", but what it does, it does well.
Me - first time I watched it, I just fancied going to play basketball.
The songs are very catchy and I found myself humming them only after hearing them once. The young cast were excellent. All in all a rainy afternoon brightened and a very enjoyable way. I would recommend this to anyone with children as a good way to spend time together and maybe introduce them to the joy of musicals.
Returning from vacation, Gabriella is starting at a new school. She's hoping to shed her geeky girl image. On her first day, she runs into Troy, who is the captain of the basketball team at her new school. He's busy getting ready for the upcoming playoffs against their rival school.
In the back of their minds is the magic that happened when they sang together. The sign ups for the school's winter musicale have been posted, and both of them are tempted to sign up. Of course, that means Troy would have to face his friends, who think he should be focusing all of his time on basketball. And Gabriella would have to deal with Sharpay (Ashley Tisdale) who, along with her brother Ryan (Lucas Grabeel), is always the star of the school programs. Is it worth the potential social upheaval to audition?
This Disney Channel Original Movie has been getting lots of buzz, and for a very good reason. It had been on for about five minutes before I got a smile on my face, and the smile didn't leave until the movie was over. The story is fairly predictable, but the movie is lots of fun and the songs are great.
Instead of doing traditional Broadway type songs, the music here is pop. Of course, this works well with the intended audience of pre-teens and early teens. They even work in a hip-hop song and a salsa song to spice things up a little. About half the songs in this movie are auditions for the winter musicale, and they are very appropriate to the storyline.Read more ›
