"I am a movie goer, I'm a 21 year old guy and I love all kinds of films including the younger High School Musical movies. I watched this when it aired on MTV and I was very impressed. Sure it's hard to even compare to the high success of HSM, but it its own it was a great film. The songs were what caught my attention, a lot of reviews said they didn't enjoy the singing or songs, and I felt they were full of heart and I enjoyed most of them. The acting was quite good, some people could have used work, but what do you expect for a lower budget MTV movie? My sister kept hoping that Joey would cut his hair!

We were excited about all the So You Think You Can Dance people we saw in it! Neil from season 3 plays Drew, who was pretty funny. Thayne, Matt and Gev from season 4 are all seen which was pretty awesome!! I went out the next day and bought the movie.

Autumn Reeser plays a great bad girl as she did in The O.C, her song New You is pretty catchy and is a cool sequence. The two leads are good as well, because I had never really seen them before it was easier to get to know them in these singing roles. Their songs are very cool, like Ally's get even song Survivor, and the song Dreaming Wide Awake!

The DVD has some cool features, there are two commentaries, one by the cast and one by the director and the guys who play the janitors. They give some cool behind the scene stories on the movie making process, like filming in a real mall. There are music videos, and a short blooper reel, and learn how to dance, ha, may pass on that one. The deleted scenes give a little more on the interesting past of Madison's dad and Ally's mom, and a very short alternate ending that answered the question-What happened to the store?

All in all it was a good movie and the dvd has great features, unfortunately no behind the scenes. Take a chance, you may hate it or love it, it's certainly up to anyone. You may like some scenes and songs and not the others. Watch and just have fun!! Soon you maybe singing along!!"
Fun musical

"This movie has replaced the "High School Musical" trilogy for my granddaughter and entertaining enough for adults."
