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 Disney movie that Disney is milking for all its worth and is continuing to do so. No one quite knows why High School Musical is so popular. Even the actors admit its a crappy movie. Its probably because 11-14 year old girls think the guys in the movie are hot (No offense Corbin. I love you.) and that in real life everything works out perfectly like in the movie. Real people, however, realize that the plot is cheap, the characters are underdeveloped, and most of the actors aren't great. I for one think there were better quality Disney movies that should have made it big. The songs are pretty catchy though.
1. "High school Musical is the worst movie I've ever seen...but for some reason I can't change the channel."

2. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE High School Musical. Zac Efron and Corbin blu are sooooo hot.

3. Person 1 -I can't wait till prom. Probably my girlfriend and my ex best friend, who she left me for, will admit they were actually just planning a surprise party for me and then we'll all break out in song and dance.
Person 2 -Dude that's NOT going to happen...
Person 1 - IT WOULD IN HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL!!!

4. Vanessa Ann Hudgens couldn't act her way out of a paper bag.

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?

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.

A cheesy take on the american high school teen movie, the sort of thing that plays on american teenager stereotypes. also seems to be very pro status quo (in america) its pretty shameless at its message really ie "stick to the stus quo" (part of the soundtrack)
high school musical - "if you wanna be cool follow one simple rule
dont mess with the flow oh nooo,
stick to the status quoooooo...."

idiot - hey cant argue with that, im gonna be a good boy and do all my homework and one day grow up to be a
scientist woooh.

someone else - learn to live.

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!!!!
