Wow...
11 August 2018 | by angiemaeSee all my reviews

When I first saw the commercials for this movie, I was annoyed that they were making yet another version of this, but we thought we'd give it a try anyway since we usually end up loving Disney movies. This was terrible. Like, so bad. I can't believe Disney even went through with this. Also, I feel I should add that I LOVE musicals, and this being an unexpected musical made it sooo much worse. The acting is bad. The lip syncing is bad. The songs are ridiculous (I mean, that biology one was just painful to watch with the lyrics and the cheesy dancing, and lets not even go into the fact that it's actually the mother singing about having feelings for a teenage boy..awkward). We will definitely not be watching this again.
