Critic Reviews for High School Musical 3: Senior Year

All Critics (131) | Top Critics (47)

High School Musical 3 overstays its welcome, stretching out about 20 minutes longer than it needs to, thanks chiefly to a final celebratory reel that simply refuses to end.

December 10, 2008 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

A real, honest-to-goodness teen musical throwback, as if Andy Hardy had never died and James Dean had never lived.

December 8, 2008 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

So sweet you'll leave the cinema with diabetes.

December 5, 2008 | Full Review…

Its winning formula is driven not by narrative but by what isn't there: no sex, no drugs, and no rock and roll-- unless you count the logjam of thundering power ballads.

October 27, 2008 | Full Review…

Musical 3 is frustratingly shallow, but what it lacks in narrative ambition, it makes up for in dazzling choreography.

October 24, 2008 | Rating: 3/4

It's a classic case of giving the people what they want.

It's senior year and the students have to make choices about college and love. Cheesy and innocent fun.

Actually a good movie, much better than the first 2. This movie was fun, some better music and a nice story. The acting has never been good in this movie, so their record stays the same there. For once, a High School Musical I can enjoy.
