High School Musical 3: Senior Year | 2008 | G | - 2.1.0

The teens from the "High School Musical" TV movies graduate to the big screen, where they are also graduating from high school and need to make choices about the direction their lives will be taking. With Zac Efron, Ashley Tisdale, Vanessa Hudgens, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu, Monique Coleman, Kaycee Stroh, Olesya Rulin and Jemma McKenzie-Brown. Directed by Kenny Ortega. [1:40]

SEX/NUDITY 2 - A teen boy and a teen girl kiss, a teen boy and a teen girl dance and nearly kiss, and a teen boy and a teen girl kiss on the cheek.
 A teen boy and a teen girl sit in a tree house, they sing to each other romantically, and they dance and embrace. Teen boys and teen girls dance at a party. A teen boy admires a teen girl as she walks by and he holds his chest. A teen girl sends a note to a teen boy with a lipstick kiss on it. Two teen boys ask two teen girls to go to the prom with them.
 Cheerleaders wearing short skirts and low-cut tops (revealing cleavage and bare thighs) cheer and dance in several scenes. Teen girls wear low-cut tops and dresses that reveal cleavage in several scenes. A teen boy is bare-chested and wears low-slung pants (his bare-chest and abdomen to hip are shown). We see several teen boys bare-chested, with towels wrapped around their waist, in a locker room; two of them run through school hallways, into a girls' volleyball game and onto a stage chasing two other boys who have taken their clothes. A teen boy takes off his shirt (we see his bare back to the hip). Teen boys and girls try on prom outfits (cleavage and bare shoulders of the girls are seen).
 A teen boy says he's a "babe magnet." A teen girl says, "I want to practice my kissing scene."

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
