    High School Musical 2 is very good. It's more than listenable. The music is surprisingly catchy, smartly penned and not annoying.

    High School Musical 2's audience already knows how this movie ends. But they'll watch and re-watch because it has such an unembarrassed good time getting there.

    HSM2 is better than the original, and not only because its production budget is reportedly triple the first cable movie. The songs are bolder.... The acting by the returning well-scrubbed cast is better.

    High School Musical 2 is pretty much a total tuneful blast.

    The story isn't quite as fresh, nor the message as warming, but there are wall-to-wall zippy pop numbers to keep your little girls squealing happily.

    Compared to the original, it's slicker, brighter, more obviously produced, and a smidgen less fun.

    The movie is mediocre, and should be skipped.

    High School Musical is great, but this sequel to it is way more better - funny moments and singing are it's best, along with the actors - that makes it eye-candy for all. Expand

    Four years ago, I was the High School Musical biggest fan. I remember I didn't like the 2nd movie as the 1st and the 3rd, but it is great. It was THE film of my childhood. Expand

    In a weird way it is better than the first one. But just for a little. The story is almost the same. Mustly of the film sounds stupid. Anyway it is better, but it gives me headaches. Expand

    Although way worst than the first film, and featuring a nails on the chalkboard performance from Ashley Tisdale; it has some great music to make it entertaining. Expand

    This is not even bad - this is an insult to anyone's intelligence. High school musical 2 is the WORST PIECE OF crap I have ever seen in my life. This does not compare to anything.. I am just speechless. It is just horrid and I cannot believe that they make this type of thing for children - no wonder they're getting more stupid! Should be banned from TV. Expand
