Away at college, Sidney Prescott (Campbell) thought she’d finally put the shocking murders that shattered her life behind her… until a copycat killer begins acting out a real-life sequel. Now as history repeats itself, ambitious reporter Gale Weathers (Cox), deputy Dewey (Arquette) and other Scream survivors find themselves trapped in a terrifyingly clever plotline where no one is safe – or beyond suspicion – in this “delicious, diabolical and fun” (Rolling Stone) sequel.

What I Can Tell You: This is exactly the direction Disney should be going right now. I love the friendship, be strong, be proud, stand up for what you believe in theme.

The movie starts out with Stella, a new girl who is angry about moving and starting a new school a month into the semester. She finds herself in detention where she meets four other freshman students. They seem to have nothing in common until, they start putting together a beat, each one bringing something different to the sound. Before you know it, they are a band.

With the help of a Lemonade Machine, a spirited music teacher played by Trisha Campbell Martin, and Stella with a penchant for being heard, the group play in front of their peers and are actually really good.

I loved the building of the friendships between the kids and how their problems seemed very real and not contrived. There is someone everyone can relate to; whether you are the ignored kid, the quiet kid, the overachiever, you will find someone who resonates with you.

Another surprised was that the songs were actually good! I didn’t feel silly watching this and kids will undoubtedly appreciate the music. Catchy without the over saccharin of most kid friendly musicals.

Final Thoughts

Lemonade Mouth is a great movie for kids. It teaches everyone about how first impression’s, aren’t everything. People can change themselves. Everyone gets back up when they fall down.
