Did You Know?

Trivia

Corbin Bleu originally intended to audition as Ryan Evans, but when he saw Lucas Grabeel dancing at the audition, he said that can't shake like Lucas can, and Ryan had to shake when dancing. So, instead, he auditioned for Chad and won the role. See more »

Goofs

During "Getcha Head in the Game", there is a player with the number 00 on the back. In a traditional basketball game, there is no such number used for a player. However, this scene is something of a fantasy, so this unrealistic element is allowed. See more »

This movie is crap
20 August 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

In the month of June 2007 I sat down with a nice snack and turned on the television, that's when I saw Disney's movie 'Highschool musical' on. I decide to watch it since it was ALL the talk nowadays, let's just say I have a peanut allergy and I had a reaction to that movie worse then my deadly allergy. It was the most HORRIBLE movie I have see to this day, I had to baby sit my little sister who was in love with the teletubies and this movie made that movie look like an award winner. I honestly have no clue why the rating is so high if it was a work of crap.

If you let your kids watch this movie they are guaranteed to get stupid. This movie has nothing to do with REAL highschool life, when you hear people saying there life is just like this movie, please just hit them over the head already with a blunt object they are clearly disturbed.

The main character who played Troy was an awful actor and has a terrible singing voice. He just stands there and prances around like a magical pixie horse trying too hard to sing, it's like they hired him to look pretty. The main girl, I have to admit did have a good singing voice but her acting sucked. Oh and the 'antagonists' the brother and sister looked like they were in love with each other which was wrong.

The songs that are sung in this musical were all clearly crap if you actually listened to the lyrics and not the actual music. The dubbing, well lets just say it made me hurl... TWICE. The mouths literally moved 20 seconds after the words are actually spoken, you can actually tell that this was dubbed. This movie clearly had a low budget.

All in all, I hated this movie and I don't know why so many people like this movie. Please, don't risk your health so don't watch this movie.
