is a Disney film about the power of self-expression and believing in oneself. When a group of seemingly incompatible high-school students get assigned detention, they discover a common love of music. Each of the students is dealing with some sort of pressure from home, but finds that collective music-making provides a personal voice that affords them a new sense of freedom and being heard. The kids form a band that quickly becomes popular, much to the dismay of rival band Mudslide Crush, but things definitely aren't easy for them, thanks to a school principal who seems to focus only on sports teams and the corporate sponsorships those teams can procure. Luckily, the band's struggle serves to bring them closer and makes their music more meaningful. There are some great songs in this film, including "Breakthrough," "More Than a Band," and "Determinate." Good Luck Charlie
