Have You Ever Seen a High School Musical Movie?

High School Musical 3 hit theaters over the weekend, much to the delight of preteens and Zac Efron fans everywhere.

A lot of you said you didn't really understand the hype around this big-screen release, but given the movie's vast popularity, I'm still not really convinced. So, it's OK, you can admit it: Have you ever watched one of the High School Musical movies?

Come to think of it, I have seen bits of pieces of the movie.. but I can't recall actually sitting on the couch and watching the entire thing. Maybe I should arrange time to do that prior to running to watch the 3rd one.

i've seen a little bit of the second and a little bit of the first. they look cute and i hate to admit i really liked lizzie maguire when i was a bit younger (though WAY too old to be watching it still!). of course, zac efron kind of gives me the creeps so i don't think i could jump on that bandwagon. i think eventually i will see at least one of these movies in its entirety.

At first, I absolutely hated them and thought they were like, really cheesy and stupid. But they are the most ADDICTING movies I have ever come across. I own the first two and saw the third on opening night. I hated every minute of it....but wow.... I still love it. Though, on the flip side, I am an elementary school teacher, and drama club director... so, in my defense.... this is research.

I was watching my neice on the night that the first movie premiered on TV, and I secretly loved it. Yep, I've seen all three. Some cheesy wholesomeness is a good break sometimes to the monotony of violent vulgar things (but of course I love those too).

I've never seen them, but I've been curious to watch the first one just to see why everyone likes it so much.

I've seen them(1-2), I had to know what the fuss was about. It's ment for children, that's all I'm gonna say right now.

lickety split, the wholesomeness is also what I like about these movies. There aren't many movies like that anymore...of course, it's cheesy but its not really intended for older audiences! Kids love's like a cleaner version of Grease (but not necessarily as good). But I remember seeing Grease when I was younger and I didn't understand any of the innuendos or sexual references. When i finally was old enough to understand everything, I was really surprised I was allowed to watch that movie when I was little!

My youngest sister loves these movies and my middle sister is obsessed with Zac Efron, so it was inevitable that I would see all of these movies. They are actually better than you might expect! The first one was okay (but really cheesy), the second one was better, and the third one was actually great. Some of the songs are pretty fun to sing along to! I love Ashley Tisdale so thats partly why I watch them.

the movies are very cute for the target audience: pre-teens. i've got girls in this age group so i've seen them all, and will likely see them all again. one reviewer (think it was rolling stone) asked where the "gossip girl" type sexual stuff was (in SHM3), but that isn't what this series is; it's harmless fun for pre-teens. thank goodness there is still some of that. i prefer cheese to sexually suggestive for my girls.

There's no option to say "I Netflixed the first two and probably will Netflix the third as well." I guess that's a little clunky. :-P

I've seen the first two but gave up on the last one.

I've seen parts of the first two because I have 2 nieces who LOVE them, and its sometimes the movies they want to see before nap time..

I'm a sucker for these cheesy Disney movies. I'll probably catch HSM3 on Disney in 2009.

I've seen the first one and even though the acting is a bit forced, it's really cute and just a fun time. I'd be interested to see all three, but I won't be seeing Senior Year in theaters. I happened to catch the first one on TV last week and had "get your head in the game" and the status quo song stuck in my head for days!

They sucked me in with their crazy songs and general Disney cheesiness...Disney knows how to market products. I've seen the first two on TV because everyone around me was so hyped by it, and I wanted to be fair and give it a chance...I still hate Zanessa, though.
