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.

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.

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.

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.
