  • The beginning of Disney Channel's end.

    It's already 8 years old, but you can tell it has not aged well at all. This was, and still is, an example of the post-2001 Disney Channel being one of the most overrated Disney franchises of all time. It was everywhere, and its popularity overshadowed everything else Disney had under its belt, even the Pixar movies! Luckily, The Princess and the Frog took Disney out of the hell their TV network put them into with HSM, but one of the casualties of this mess we'll never recover from is that Disney Channel's former sister network focusing on classic Disney animation, Toon Disney, was replaced by Disney XD, a station that's basically a male version of the travesty that the Disney Channel currently is. If you want something good from Disney, you're better off watching their recent or classic animated movies, or the Pixar film library.moreless

    I don't care if they butthurt over my comments. This movie is awful! It's all about singing and dancing bullcrap that nobody gives a shit about. Disney, where the hell are Mickey and his friends? I don't see them anymore!
  • Whoever likes this crapfest has a bad taste in humor!

    Ever since Hannah Montana, Disney hasn't even been trying anymore! Out of all the terrible movies Disney has made these years, this one is the worst! I can't explain how overrated this movie is! They don't have talent one bit, and most people who like them hate good shows, I mean @nickel2006, you think ZIM and Emperor's New School are stupid, and you just like crappy teen sitcoms like these, Zoey 101, and (Even Worse) Jonas Brothers) Do even know what good shows are? Anyways the songs weren't that bad, but they were really annoying after a while, I know this is a musical, but you can't go 1 minute without hearing another freaking musical number! Not to mention its boring too! I almost fell aslep after going through this. Alright I feel like I've said enough since its almost midnight here!

    Don't waste your time, and stay away from these freaks! Overall Grade: (1.5/10) F-moreless
  • This Movie Stunk.

    This was about the worst movie ever. I couldnt take it. The guys in this movie all looked gay. The singing was really bad. I hear people talking about this all the time, saying its the best movie ever and all that crap. I have seen people with ring tones from songs in this movie and I hear people (*cough*girls*cough*)singing these songs all the time. Even my cousin (hes a boy who usually likes wrestling and fighting and violent stuff like that) said that this movie was the best movie ever. I dont understand what is so great about this movie. I am definitely not watching the sequel.moreless
