    The movie was absolutely horrible. It's your average "teen" movie.
    Completely agree. Though it'd probably make 82% of teens wet themselves from laughter.

    You guys are funny... a bunch of stick in the mud folks who spend way to much time relishing in the past. While I enjoy the past, it's important to acknowlege and be aware of trends. As a shareholder I can't say enough good things about High School Musical. If you are one, you should be in the same boat.

    Unfortunately there will never be a channel for 50 year old people that want to pretend they're 10 years old and that things haven't changed. FYI: Did you know that Big Bird has a new red friend and his name is ELMO? Yes, things change it's just the nature of business.

    And as far as HSM, I've never seen it, but my daughter has. She loves the music, and basically anything else on the Disney Channel from Hannah Montana (:yuck to Suite Life.

    I figure it's harmless pre-teen drivel and she'll grow out of it. I hope. :unsure:
    Actually, the song title is "Alone at a Drive-In Movie." I just simplified the title when I regurgitated the mess onto my post.

    That's why there's a link. So you don't have to remember. Except for the link, of course. Or that post.

    Sure would be nice to have them in alphabetical order, though.

    I couldn't figure it out, either, until I saw another post.
    "Hauntin' Space Mountain"?
    "Honey, Stupid Movie-based-attraction?"

    Not really. Have you ever had to sit through the second act of Grease??? It's basically a string of "spotlight solos." Meaning, let's venture into the mind of the character and hear their lament. (Worse Things I Could Do, Alone at the Drive-In, Sandra-Dee Reprise, It's Raining on Prom Night.) Then don't forget Rock N Roll Party Queen, a boring song with no purpose and no plot development. Nothing happens in Grease. They like eachother, piss eachother off for various stupid reasons, dance, then she turns into a tramp for him. No major conflicts, nothing at stake, no eventful scenes.

    And High School Musical at least plays up the conflict to a degree in order to actually bring the plot to a point of climax. He must physically choose one world or another, or find a way to do both. Now I think the characters are unbelievable, the songs lack any power due to the breathy pop style, and the story cliche, random incest undertone for villians...but at least it has a plot.

    It was an OK movie for little kids, but all the publicity it's getting has made it unlikeable I guess. That's just my opinion though.

    I personally enjoyed HSM a lot!! The music is fun and it has a good message for kids. There is no violence or sexual innuendo so it's safe for all ages. I work with kids and they are wild for it! This is a movie that I know that I can show to the kids without having any parents getting upset about it which is not the case with many movies. It's basically a kid version of "Grease" and it's great!

    While it was cheesy, it dealt with a theme that a lot of tweens do deal with and that was identity. A few of the songs were decent, one in my mind was outstanding. I new once I saw the commercial with the actors and those few bars from that song, I knew it would be a huge hit, Disney knows their audience.

    I agree. People need to realize there are still some out there who do not know what a lot of the abbreviations mean.

    I am not sure if they mean High School Musical because this isn't in the "Aa Entertainment" lounge, it is in the non-park offereings lounge. So perhaps this is an abbreviated name for a theme park.

    I must agree with this statement.

    I personally enjoy it for the cheese factor. Its so happy and bouncy and corny and just screams Disney. I don't take it seriously - I don't think it was made to be taken seriously. Like the Da Vinci Code in that respect.
