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.
Movie Quality: 9/10
- Rock-Along feature – Rock with the band to all your favorite songs
Special Features: 1/10
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.
Overall Rating: 8/10
