Wasn't my favorite movie, but it was ok. If you want more of Zac Efron, watch the Greatest showmen.

Extremely sweet (if silly) musical made fabulous by young star Zac Efron! I think this movie is great and even if it may not appeal to some, it is what it is: a light, fun adventure made for the tween/teen audience.

Completely stupid, I made the mistake of watching this at the behest of a good friend

This is a super cute, great movie for teens, especially if you like catchy music, jump-along dancing, and Zac Efron! The producers kept it clean and simple. Well done!

If you like music, theatre, sports, and some drama, then High School Musical matches your tastes! High School Musical is about two high school students, Troy and Gabriella, who fall in love with each other. They meet during a New Years party and sing together. Later on they find out that they are in the same high school and because of Troy, Gabriella auditions for the theatre show, and because of Gabriella, Troy auditions as well. Basketball is Troy's biggest focus, being the son of the coach, and he is embarrassed to audition... but together they have a long way to go...

After watching High School Musical, I came to the conclusion that it is a good movie, but not as good as the second and third. This movie follows the life of Troy Bolten and how his life is changed throughout his high school years. He meets a girl named Gabriella, and she and him eventually get inspired to sing at East High. I liked this movie because it was interesting to see how Troy's friends reacted when they found out he wants to sing in school. He is the captain of the Basketball team, after all! This movie was not my favourite of all time, because at some times it got boring, but the acting was exceptionally good, especially for the ages of all the young actors. I would recommend this movie if you like musicals. I would rate it a 3.5/5.

High School Musical is a classic Disney channel movie featuring hit actors and actresses like Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Zac Efron, Corbin Bleu, and more. Although high school isn’t actually singing and dancing or anything like this movie at all, this is still such a fun movie to watch and sing and dance along to with friends. It'll definitely make you wish that high school was actually like this. It’s a little bit of a cliche teen movie but it’s super cute and fun to watch anyway. I would definitely recommend it to other teens and rate it 4/5 stars.

I loved High School Musical when it was first released on The Disney Channel back in 2005. I watched it several times that year like 8 or 9. It is cheesy but so was Grease and it introduced an innocent Zac Efron who hasn't played a decent movie since.

A cute, funny movie for the light-hearted. I guess I can sorta see why there was so much hype when this series first came out. It was sweet enough to watch, and had some great lessons for kids. I laughed a lot, especially when Gabriella and Troy exchanged numbers (they're CELLPHONES...*snort-laugh* It's hilarious and amazing how far we've come since then!). The main characters are likeable. All and all, a hour and a half of pure fun.
