I feel kind of weird writing a blog post on a Disney Channel movie. But I actually liked watching this one. It’s the usual “outcasts” of the school throwing aside their differences for a common interest – music.
Stella (Hayley Kiyoko), Olivia (Bridgit Mendler), Charlie (Blake Michael), Mo (Naomi Scott), and Wen (Adam Hicks) meet in detention. After singing together “Turn Up the Music”, they perform at the Halloween bash and are an instant hit…but the rivaling boy band Mudslide Crush, led by Ray, is furious. Not only are they furious, but so is Principal Brenigan because not only do they express themselves in their music, but they also begin to express the
voices of the students of the oppressed Mesa High School.
This is actually based off of a book called by the same name, Lemonade Mouth by Mark Peter Hughes. I actually haven’t read it yet, but I’ll get to that soon. Meanwhile, you can check it out at your nearest Wake County Public Library here.
So. What do you think? Will you watch it? Have you watched it?
