  1. There's nothing objectionable about the messages of the piece: always be true to yourself and treat everyone with dignity and respect. But teens and adults may find it a little saccharine.

    This is a hit, and has been carefully crafted by Disney to become one. The formula may be as old as pop culture itself, but (again) who really cares?
  3. It takes nothing away from this genuinely talented group of kids to express even greater admiration for the promotion and marketing.

    The band has a refreshing scruffiness but except for Joe gets too little screen time to leaven the formula slickness.

    Like "High School Musical," it's a painfully simple but efficient fairy tale for a generation that never heard of Frankie and Annette, blending music with teen angst about fitting in--all built around a likable protagonist, multiethnic cast and hot pop trio.
  6. Camp Rock isn't particularly good, but it's good at what it does. The product may be "inauthentic," if such a thing is even possible, but the way it will connect with a lot of little girls and more than a few little boys is real enough.

    Alas, although she's likable enough, Lovato just doesn't have the same sparkle as a Miley Cyrus--or an Ashley Tisdale, for that matter. And though her music is in the same dance-inspiring, easy-to-memorize mode as that of the "HSM" franchise, it's not as catchy.

    What a waste of life. Who'd actually waste their time to go see another gay "High School Musical" type of film. The songs and beat are What a waste of life. Who'd actually waste their time to go see another gay "High School Musical" type of film. The songs and beat are repulsive. The acting, on first base, is terrible. I even got that bored just to see this crap. But omg, just avoid this at all costs. Even if I won a Blue Ray DVD Player and 60 inch plasma screen that had to come with Camp Rock. I'de still burn the whole thing. Awful. Expand
