Editorial Reviews:
The Disney Channel Original Movie High School Musical is a combination of backstage action and Grease without the unwholesome habits. Scoring record ratings at the time of its January 2006 broadcast, it's a smash hit with tween audiences (ages 6 to 10), but appealing for all ages. At a New Year's Eve party, Troy (Zac Efron of the WB's Summerland) has a chance meeting with Gabriella (Vanessa Anne Hudgens) when they share a karaoke song. Lo and behold, when school resumes, they discover that Gabriella has just transferred to Troy's East High School, a campus divided into tight cliques of jocks, cheerleaders, brainiacs, and skater dudes. Eager to recapture the magic they'd discovered during karaoke, Troy and Gabriella consider auditioning for the school's upcoming musical, much to the dismay of the school's frost queen/theater goddess, Sharpay (Ashley Tisdale of The Suite Life of Zack and Cody). Problem is, Troy is also the star of the basketball team and Gabrielle is being recruited to compete in the Scholastic Decathlon. Will they give up their cliques to start something new, or will they do as the show's first big anthem urges and "Stick to the Status Quo"? Well, this is a Disney movie, so maybe the sacrifices won't be that hard, and even the hints of romance are mild.

The bestselling soundtrack is catchy in that Disney-pop kind of way, mixing in a dash of hip-hop ("Getcha Head in the Game," punctuated by squeaky basketball shoes and other sound effects), salsa ("Bop to the Top"), and the endearingly hammy ("What I've Been Looking For" performed by Sharpay and her brother, Ryan, played by Lucas Gabreel). It's not hard to imagine High School Musical becoming a semi-staple for high school groups to perform themselves. DVD bonus features include sing-along subtitles; a 9-minute featurette discussing casting, recording sessions, and rehearsals; a multi-angle look at a rehearsal of "Bop to the Top"; and music videos for "We're All in This Together" and a song that didn't make it into the final film, "I Can't Take My Eyes Off of You," performed by Efron, Hudgens, Tisdale, and Gabreel. --David Horiuchi

The all-new, smash hit Disney Channel Original Movie everyone is talking about is now available for the first time ever on DVD -- with never-before-seen bonus features that will rock your house! Troy (Zac Efron), the popular captain of the basketball team, and Gabriella (Venessa Anne Hudgens), the brainy and beautiful member of the academic club, break all the rules of East High society when they secretly audition for the leads in the school's musical. As they reach for the stars and follow their dreams, everyone learns about acceptance, teamwork, and being yourself. And it's all set to fun tunes and very cool dance moves! Featuring the hottest talent, HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL celebrates the power of music in this hip, entertaining, gotta-get-up-and-dance movie. Own all the excitement and the exclusive extras available only on this Encore Edition DVD.

5 out of 5 stars Terrific family movie   June 22, 2006
We rented this movie after hearing and reading good things about it. All were correct. This movie is fantastic. I watched it with my 9yo daughter and we loved it so much that when it was over, we kept going back in the movie to replay our favorite songs. The next day, we went out and bought the DVD and the CD. I am so glad to see such great movies out there nowadays. This one should have gone to the big screen, too. Thumbs up!!

5 out of 5 stars Great family movie   June 21, 2006
Great family movie -- we don't have kids, but we love it. We first saw it when it first appeared on the Disney Channel and couldn't wait until it came out on DVD. I also have the CD. Very clean-cut movie, which is unusual these days. The songs are very upbeat.

5 out of 5 stars (singing) BOP TO THE TOP!   June 20, 2006
This is a very great movie, even though I think Zac Efron is a horrible actor. But at least he's good at singing! I LOVE this music expecially Bop To The Top.

(singing) to believe that I couldn't see this dvd was wating For me in the stores! Thought I was alone with nothin' to watch but it was waitin' right for me. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

5 out of 5 stars I love this movie!   June 20, 2006
This movie's awesome!!I love it partly because it has a lot of my fave actors,such as Zac Efron,Ashley Tisdale,and Vanessa Anne Hudges.But mostly because of the music.Disney has some of the best music ever!!

5 out of 5 stars Great Family Movie!   June 20, 2006
This is a terrific family movie. We've watched it over and over and the kids haven't tired of it. The storyline is easy to follow, the actors engaging, the message is age-appropriate and the songs are quite catchy! The previous reviewer who said the film is stupid has missed the point that this is a kids' movie -- it's not going to win an Oscar. It IS going to entertain the children and the parents, and no one is going to get scared, or offended, by anything in this film. Highly recommended! We ended up purchasing the CD, too, so that the kids can listen to the music in their room.
