High School Musical 3: Senior Year
Time Out says
Parents might find solace in the fact that ‘High School Musical’ contains no product placements, but then the film is the product – one long, gaudy, squeaky-clean advertisement. And when we leave the cinema, we can expect to be drowned mercilessly by the merchandising tsunami that follows. It’s possible that – for perhaps the first time ever – you’ll actually wish the film had more product placement: just something, anything, to connect it to reality. Indeed, ‘High School Musical 3’ is a film that is so disengaged with the real problems faced by young teenagers that it makes ‘Dirty Dancing’ look like ‘Les Quatre Cents Coups’. The bottom line is, if you’ve not already booked tickets for the entire family, think twice before being caught up in the hype. At best, you’ll be disappointed; at worst, you’ll want to blow up a high school.
