I too sat down with my children to watch this movie some time ago. Usually we have a hard time finding movies we can watch together as a family, especially since they're at the tender ages of 19 and 21. I was appalled at the kissing. My 19 year old was especially upset. He became agitated and eventually began crying. We had to stop the movie to bring him to talk to our pastor who was able to calm him down. Our pastor thought it would be a good idea to try and continue watching the movie, not for enjoyment, but so that our children would get an idea of the evils they will be confronted with in this world. After all, their mother and I won't always be able to chaperon when they go on dates with members of the opposite sex, despite how much we'd like to. After kneeling in our prayer room together and praying, we started the movie again. To make a long story short, when it was over, my wife suggested we burn the DVD as we prayed over it. I, as the father of the house, decided it would be best to also burn our DVD player, as I didn't want any residual impurity lingering in the damned contraption. In order for it to really burn, I had to pour some gasoline on it. The fire got out of control and spread to the rest of the house from the prayer room. We are now living at a shelter where my daughter met an older man (who apparently used to sing in a rock band and does not go to church regularly). She started seeing this man behind our backs until we learned that she and my wife have both become impregnated by him. And it is all due to this movie. If you ask me, I believe that the level of sin in the movie is really what drove these events. By bringing this movie into our home, we invited evil itself into our lives. Watch at your own risk.

Before I set out to watch this movie, I checked out the reviews here and a few users believed this movie was worth every cent they forked out for it. I, on the other hand, after watching the movie, strongly believe otherwise. For most parts, the movie dabbled in some teen angst like moving away from your friends and participating in competitions and so on and so forth. And that was pretty much it. Not to mention the songs sounded particularly like a Boyz II Men karaoke compilation throughout. Their acting was nothing shy of mediocre and I was cringing for most times whenever they aren't breaking out into some dance or song. To be precise, their acting was very forced and amateur-ish. It wasn't very entertaining in other words and if you are already a HSM fan, please do not proceed to ruin your movie experience by watching this.
- I'm so happy I didn't buy it. 8/26/2010 12:00:00 AM by jehureyes
My family has bought a lot of Christian DVD's recently. I, personally bought one which was a Filipino Christian movie. It was really worth the price so I decided to look for another. As I was browsing along the store, I saw this and it cost 250 Php. Thank God I only got 200 during the moment.
When I finally got home I looked at this page and found too many negative feedback about the film. Because of them, I decided to download an illegal copy first, not to watch it but just to preview it. I do not support piracy.
About the film, I had my left eyebrow raised the whole time. As I move the slider, there's always an awkward scene. The cinematography, the acting, the music, the projection, the choreography, the dialogue... It isn't cheesy...not even cool. It sucks, to be honest. As a fan of both modern and classic musicals, I can say so.
I think the director is good. So are the actors, the song writers, and everyone who made this film although it made me feel like I was watching a movie I made for a school project. They need more training and everything. They can be better. I believe this isn't their best yet.
I'm still looking forward to future projects of Faith Films even though this was a big disappointment... I'm just going to buy To Save A Life when it's out in my country rather than this.

The writing should be called High School Writing.....at best! A predictable story line, low production value and a flat script make for a very irritating 93 minutes. on a positive note i found a cure for my insomnia.It's very boring. It reminds me of when my friends and I would get together and make home movies....when we really didn't know what we were doing. Editing was all over the place,maybe better suited for a horror movie but not a Sunday School Musical.The story never went anywhere that you didn't expect it too. As I said before very predictable. I really said everything in the summery but IMDb requires you to write ten lines.
