Movie Review: Lemonade Mouth

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.

So. What do you think? Will you watch it? Have you watched it?
