A terrible movie that has become a phenomenon. The reason why is because parents are too protective and sheltering of their kids nowadays, and middle school kids and anyone younger is curious and asking questions about what high school is like. Instead of using more realistic movies based on high school life like Fast Times At Ridgemont High or Superbad, they use this shit as an example. This movie makes them super happy and optimistic, they become obsessed with it, which has made it probably the most overrated and overmarketed movies of all time.

This is probably one of the main reasons why High School Freshmen have a tendency to act so retarded, because they are convinced that High School is like some 'fairy tale musical'. High School students should(hopefully) know better.

Anyone over the age of 14 who likes this movie should be slapped.

12 year old: OMG!!!! I can't wait for high school now that i've just watched High School Musical!!!! There won't be any labels, all the cliques and crowds will live in harmony, I can share my secrets and no one will humiliate me, it will be just like a happy fairy tale. =D

The most misleading shit ever.

A movie that sadly went on to make two sequels.

It's about a bunch of teenagers exploring their sexual preferences through song and dance. Quite frankly if I was to inherit a copy of this filth, I would incinerate it ASAP.

High school musical is a crappy Disney movie about a bunch of delusional teenagers that break out into song and dance randomly. The only people who enjoy this movie are those teeny boppers.
I fear for the future of our world. These high school musical-watching teeny boppers are going to become our future >_>

An awful trilogy of movies marketed by Disney. I think they're supposed to be some knock-off, kid friendly, version of Fame, or Grease (not that Grease was anything special to begin with). Has a regrettably catchy soundtrack, and shows a diamond ecnrusted version of highschool. Take close notice, if you're ever unfortunate enough to lay eyes upon the thing, that most of the kids are white, rich, and preppy. Often induces vomiting, bleeding of the ears and/or eyes, and permanent mental trauma. Consult your doctor before viewing these films.

TERRIBLE. WORST MOVIE EVER.

High School Musical is so unrealistic. People aren't suddenly going to break out in song and do a little dance. Disney chooses all the 'pretty' and 'hot' people to be in it just so that mindless little 10 year olds will be drawn in by the 'pretty' people.

The characters are totally self-centered. The song "Fabulous" from the 2nd movie is proof.

Most people end up thinking that this will happen in real life. BUT IT WON'T.

Any freakin' idiot who thinks that High School Musical is "awesome" or "the actors are so hot" or anything else needs to get a life.
Absentminded person: ZOMG!!!I LOVE YOU ZAC EFFRON!!! MARRY ME!!!

Another absentminded person: The actors portray their characters so well. I want to learn to sing just like Sharpay!

A person with a brain: HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL SUCKS!! You are retarded.
