Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Pop fluff intended for kids stuck between Dora the Explorer and Gossip Girl. Consider it a bonus that it's tolerable, if not fun, for the rest of us as well."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"As a marketing phenomenon, this has exceeded all expectations for a TV movie. However as cinema... maybe you just really need to be a teen to get it."
‑ Emma Cochrane, Empire Magazine
"...it's difficult to imagine even the most die-hard fan of musicals finding anything here worth embracing."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"There's no denying the tween audience was hungering for this movie, without even knowing it. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"A schmaltzy little piece of obvious fluff that's directed in truly horrendous fashion and populated by cardboard characters who spit out simplistic platitudes and breathy pop tunes."
‑ Scott Weinberg, DVDTalk.com
"the filmmakers were just trying to tell a story. Sex, drugs and violence just didn't factor into that equation"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"A simplistic, and single minded teen romp filled with Disney channel regulars that disappears from your collective memory minutes after viewing it..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Film Threat
"For all its ungainliness, its cheesiness, its silliness, High School Musical is undoubtedly a great big heap of fun."
‑ David Cornelius, DVDTalk.com
"with a name like "Sharpay," it's gotta be good"
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
