HOW CAN THEY EXPECT ANYONE to BUY a FULL-PRICE DVD of the THIRD MOVIE in a SERIES, WHEN BOTH of ITS LAME PREDECESSORS DEBUTED on CABLE for FREE?!?!?

WHO DO THEY THINK THEIR AUDIENCES ARE, HOPELESSLY HUNG UP TEEN-AGED GIRLS with MEGA-CRUSHES on ZAC EFRON...

OH WAIT, THAT IS the AUDIENCE for THIS TRIPE!   

BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN WE CAN'T BITCH, MOAN and KVETCH ABOUT the DEATH of AMERICAN CULTURE as PERSONIFIED by a SERIES of INEPT MUSICALS THAT MAKE TV's THE MONKEES LOOK LIKE MOZART.

FEEL FREE to THROW the FIRST (OR 231st) PUNCH BELOW... 


HIM: "Just think of us as Henry and Eliza...but with acne!!" 

HER: "That's not fair...and I'm no lady!"

I have to agree, it's so stupid that they had the first two movies on cable for free and then released the third in theaters! It's the same trick as when earlier this year Disney claimed the Hannah Montana/Miley Cryus concert movie would be in theaters for "one week only," then "extended" it after it scored #1 in the B.O. What's worse is that this might be the last film for the six main cast members, but then Disney will milk the series more with a new cast afterwards.

Ugh! Damn stupid preteen girls for eating this sh*t up like it's candy! It might as well be called "Saved By The Bell: The Musical" -- it's just as poorly acted and written.

I never liked the High School Musical stuff. It was like so lame, like LAMO! I think this is just completely dumb that they chose to release #3 into theaters and not have it shown on cable, like the first two.
The Mormons were'nt really popular in the beginning, they're now becoming more popular, even in Hollywood.

That guy in the picture totally missed the top and bottom buttons of his vest.

Which is a clear indicator of this film's quality. Yep.

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: ...or maybe he meant his oversight as some kind of Ultra-Lame Fashion Statement...

"GRADUATE ALREADY!"???  Be careful what you say, because if they graduate, we get to look forward to College Musical!

BTW, there was an episode of Lewis Black's "Root of All Evil" which was about Disney vs. Scientology, and Disney was declared the Root of All Evil.  Two of the many reasons for the verdict: Hannah Montana...and High School Musical.

I guess I don't bleam Disney they see there is a built audience for High School Musical, so I guess why not try to make some money off The Tweens like they did with Hannah Montana in 3D.

These movies are gonna keep going, with new characters while these characters go to college.

And I will be seeing this one, just to see how it is.

What I hate about live-action Disney is how they recast the same six actresses in everything they make, whether it's a TV series, TV movie, or theatrical movie. They did it with Lindsay Lohan, Hilary Duff, Christy Romaro, and now they're doing it with Raven, Brenda Song, and Miley Cryus. Disney must be really cheap to have to hire the same talent over and over again...or they are just too scared to use actresses who don't already have fan bases?? 

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: My guess would be that when they sign any new "talent," they put them under a contract giving Disney first dibs on their careers until they no longer have careers...

The series isn't that bad. I saw the first movie in the summer, and I found it really entertaining.

Anyway, it's OK for The Simpsons to make a movie, and not this?

Be careful what you wish for, HeadRAZZberry -- this isn't the last HSM movie (at least with this current cast).

Disney is planning a fourth "High School Musical" with an all new-cast, plus some recurring roles (from the teacher staff) for release next year. And there's also a "Hannah Montana" theatrical movie planned for April.

So the attack of the Disney tweens (pincesses-in-training?) is not done yet (Not even Selena Gomez has had her movie close-up yet, except in a direct-to-DVD release)...

They clearly forget Walt's dictum when aiming so narrowly like this:  Walt aimed to make films for EVERYONE, not just adolescents who can't add 3 and 5 properly in the first place.  And there's a good reason he rarely did sequels, and this is exactly why:  no fulfillment.  Someone needs to get through to Iger that he may be making bucks now, but people will forget about it all a decade from now.

The only Disney sequel can think of that was an actually "good" movie is
Toy Story 2.
