High School Musical 3: Senior Year is a 2008 Disney family comedy in the style of a musical, starring Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu, Monique Coleman, Olesya Rulin, and Chris Warren Jr. in a song-packed follow up to the first two movies in the very popular High School Musical series. Troy Bolton (Zac Efron), Gabriella Montez (Vanessa Hudgens) and friends are now in their senior year of high school and even nearing the end of that. With Gabriella’s dream of attend the Julliard School of the Arts in New York City and Troy’s countering plans of attending the nearby University of New Mexico on a basketball scholarship, it looks like American tweens’s favorite couple is headed for a split. Everyone is growing up and trying to go out with a bang in this song-and-dance packed movie about a huge transition in every college-bound high school senior’s life. High School Musical 3: Senior Year won two 2009 Blimp Awards, two 2009 MTV Movie Awards, a 2008 Phoenix Film Critics Society (PFCS) Award, and two 2009 Teen Choice Awards, and was nominated for five additional 2009 Teen Choice Awards, a 2009 Golden Reel Award, and 3 additional 2009 MTV Movie Awards.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times

    For those scoring at home, the third entry in the "High School Musical" series is better than the second but doesn't quite sustain the unvarnished, giddy highs of the first.

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    A candy-colored never-never land that Peter Pan might envy.

    Variety

    While Ortega and fellow choreographers Charles Klapow and Bonnie Story stretch their imaginations, there's something almost lazy about the picture's underachiever script.
