With all of the recent things the Disney Channel has done with this movie, we were excited to see the extras. We especially enjoyed when they did the "what's what" edition where they had popups of jokes and info throughout the movie. There were tiny videos of cast activities as well and this would lead us to believe that there was quite a bit of extra material to put in the dvd...we were wrong.
The video quality is, of course, fantastic. I expected this from a dvd over watching it on cable. Also, the extra "High Wire" scene is fun and you could see where it would be a nice epilogue to the move. There was also a karaoke feature that allowed you to have nice big subtitles that only showed up during the songs. These are some nice bonus features. The problem is...that's all there was.
All the behind the scenes stuff, the popups, the interviews. All the stuff they show on the disney channel...not there. This is what caused me to bump it down to a 3 star review. The dvd just felt effortless. We love the movie...but we were disappointed in the dvd release. Especially with the way disney's been hyping this for the past couple of weeks, I just expected more. If you like to buy dvd's for the extras, keep your expectations low.
But Lemonade Mouth is actually a solid little teen drama with music. The songs are more or less incidental to the story. Each of the leads has his or her own cross to bear and the film is about their journey through acceptance of their situations, not simply easy, Brady Bunch style solutions. They that also launch a successful rock band is perhaps preposterous, but their cohesion as a group is really the focus, not the showbiz glitz. It's not the dazzling Barbie-playset fantasy of Hannah or the recent Sharpay film.
And these young people are actually given roles to play, some rather complex. It is a credit to the actors and the director that they don't take the easy route of teenage overacting so common in teen dramas that it almost becomes self-parody (and was actually skewered on Sonny With a Chance, another Disney Channel series that has ended, albeit retooled as a sketch series called So Random).
I like this film much more than I expected to and so did my wife. My 13-year-old daughter adored it and watched it multiple times. But parents be warned -- this is not your usual pratfall-but-good-natured goofball Disney Channel fare. One girl is asserting her question of authority, a very natural course for the age group but still uncommon in this venue.Read more ›
