We were excited about all the So You Think You Can Dance people we saw in it! Neil from season 3 plays Drew, who was pretty funny. Thayne, Matt and Gev from season 4 are all seen which was pretty awesome!! I went out the next day and bought the movie.
Autumn Reeser plays a great bad girl as she did in The O.C, her song New You is pretty catchy and is a cool sequence. The two leads are good as well, because I had never really seen them before it was easier to get to know them in these singing roles. Their songs are very cool, like Ally's get even song Survivor, and the song Dreaming Wide Awake!
The DVD has some cool features, there are two commentaries, one by the cast and one by the director and the guys who play the janitors. They give some cool behind the scene stories on the movie making process, like filming in a real mall. There are music videos, and a short blooper reel, and learn how to dance, ha, may pass on that one. The deleted scenes give a little more on the interesting past of Madison's dad and Ally's mom, and a very short alternate ending that answered the question-What happened to the store?Read more ›
Its a remindes me of Rent in some ways as the songs go. Then they hit you with some songs that seem to come from High School musical's way. The singing is amazing in the movie. They was they sing together gives me chills. I like all 10 songs that make thier home in this moive.
I don't even like all the songs in High School Musical, That "Get Your Head In the Game" always gets skipped when seeing the movie. But found all the songs in American Mall amazing and not overdone like the songs in High School Musical. Its nice to see a musical can be made for the older crowd then the little 13 year old kids. With songs that sound more rock band then gay keyboard sounds of HSM.
Songs that stand out are "Dreaming Wide Awake", "A Little Bit Of Heart Somewhere", "Survivor", "Sorry's Not Enough" & the title song, "Get Your Rock On"
If you do not like this musical then something must be wrong with you. The story is good, the music is amazing, and gets better with every time you see the movie.
I think over time this movie will outshine High School Musical and I feel that an Americn Mall 2 will be coming soon. Lets just hope its as good as the first one. We all saw how bad High School Musical 2 was and I don't have much hope for HSM3.
Just you wait this movies popularity IS GROWING!!
I love musicals and this one was okay. In my personal opinion, not all actors or actresses should sing. It just seems a bit much when they all want to be a triple threat, but this was out before she became a big star from Vampire Diaries. Some songs were better than others, I especially love...I believe it's called Stronger with all the females just killin' it in those awesome boots. There were a few others, but the real reason that I absolutely adore this movie is for the commentaries.
I am a nerdy geek girl that loved special features and one of my favorite things is bloopers and the other is commentaries. It's a chance to hear how everyone interacts with each other and usually you learn something that happened behind the scenes that you won't ever find out about anywhere else. I do enjoy the commentary with the main cast, but my favorite one is actually with the director and the guys who played the janitors.
I've watched the movie without the commentary three times but the other times were with that commentary. It's funny and you hear how they worked together, what songs they liked, how they learned a dance routine that they didn't even perform in, and many other things. But I digress.
The special features also have a music video from Wade Allain Marcus and David Baum. It's a really good song which also has Nina Dobrev.
Yes the movie is good however it can get a little campy at times, but I really do enjoy for the commentary. So I say if you are like me and enjoy things like that, then go for it. Buy the movie. Watch it. Then commentary time.
