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 cheap and blatant disney rip-off of Grease that for some reason a bunch of kids like. So of course disney markets the shit out of it, and 2 sequels are due out. only reason to watch is to see up-and-coming actress/singer Vanessa Anne Hudgens
Loser 1: Dude did you watch High School Musical? I heard it's awesome.

Loser 2: Ya dude it was awesome!!!!

Loser 1: Did you hear they are making sequels?

Loser 2: Ya 2!!! OMG THATS SO AWESOME!!!!!

Non-Loser: Disney is so fucking pathetic they haven't had a single original idea in a decade and all they do is put out sequels because they are money-grubbing bastards who don't care about the quality of their movies.

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.
Eight Year Old Girl: Mommy! High School Musical is on! I want to be just like Gabriella when I grow up!

Mother: Oh, where did I go wrong?

1. A shitty movie series made by disney which is just a rip-off of grease. It is basically about teens in high school who sing songs forever. Zac Effron and all his other gay guy friends had a song in the recent and final movie "high school musical 3: senior year" were singing a song in their basketball outfits in a huddle how "this is the last chance to win it all" and singing all gay shit. Ashley Tisdale acting like a menustral bitch whore and all their female lesbo friends are acting all slutty and that.

2. "Horrible Singing Musical"
1.

Guy 1: Hey have you seen high school musical 3?

Guy 2: Yeah it is so gay and fucked up...I hate it!

Guy 1: Me too! Zac Effron and those gay guys are so perverted and loosers.

Guy 2: Yeah and Disney is fucking lazy to rip off grease by making HSM.

2.

Guy 1: Hey whats a good Abbreviation Re-creation of High School Musical?

Guy 2: "Horrible Singing Musical"

Guy 1: LOL!!!!

The reason so many 11 year olds are in hospital with multiple bruises and broken limbs.
Nurse: What are the injuries?
Doctor: Multiple chinese burns, two black eyes, a very sore noogie and a wedgie so bad we can't seem to find the underwear.
Nurse: So what is it this time, doc?
Doctor: Poor Janet here had her first day of High School. She immediately burst through the doors, running through the hallways singing about how working together can help you achieve anything.
Nurse: So what happened?
Doctor: She was brutally attacked by the other children. It's the 3rd case today.

And that, children, is why you should never watch any disney channel shows, expecially High School Musical.

The worst and most overrated movie ever. The movie is idiotic in EVERY POSSIBLE WAY. 8 year old girls for some reason think Zac Efron, Troy Bolton or whoever is hot (he's NOT). The movie is an insult to REAL coming of age/high school movies like Ferris Bueller's Day Off , The Goonies, The Breakfast Club and many more. The characters are mentally 10 and the songs are over exaggerated and terrible. Troy and Gabriella are annoyingly like Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez.
Troy Bolton and Gabriella: *sings some over dramatic song*
some 8 year old dumbass: OMGGGGGGG
me: wtf is this crap
the 8 year old dumbass: High School Musical <3 <3
me: this movie can go suck a lemon
