  • Ditto, Apr1, lol. However, I do have to deal with the comic book movie madness and the occasional "Harry Potter fever" (I am on board with the Harry Potter fever as I sometimes catch it myself, lol).

  • i think its b/c its a high school based movie for elementary (maybe middle) school aged kids. kinda like saved by the bell was for me. throw in high beat music & cute boys and its a recipe for success. i saw the first HSM & thought it was neat...but i geek out to musicals haha.

  • I think the high response was a surprise to Disney but the hit the ground running so they were able to prolong the popularity of the movie. I think it is the singing and dancing that entertains the kids, but mostly the "realness" of the movie. High school kids going through things other kids can relate to, although High School students were not the target audience. Plus, I guess you can't really go wrong with a love story and beautiful people.

  • My teen daughters think it's cute, but they aren't crazy about it. I watched a small portion of it the other day and I was bored by it. Pop me in a dvd of Grease and I'll be happy...LOL!!!
    But, yes, our stores are overloaded with their merchandise, as well as Hannah Montanna's stuff, too.
