    How exactly do they tell that 17 million people watched? Can the cable company track my cable… even though I don’t have a digital box and I just plug into the wall, into a shared connection for my entire apartment complex??

    This I have always wondered…

    HSM is okay and all – I mean, I watched it last night – but I so didn’t expect it to pull in that many viewers.

    My daughters and I watched it last night and we all LOVED it! I knew that this one would do even better than the first. I really liked the fact that HSM2 featured more of the entire main cast this time around so that they all got to shine and show off their talents. My favorites were of course Troy and Gabriella and the fact that Zac and Vanessa are a real life couple made this movie even more special to me.

    Amazing movie, Tastful, and classic programs are what should be pulling in these kinds of ratings. Kids are bombarded by so much trash and sexual content on tv. Glad to see that something fun for everyone to watch, has become so big, and has gotten such amazing ratings which were truly deserved.

    The cast should ask Disney for a raise. HSM 3 is definitely going to happen and I can see Disney counting all those $$$.

    Rachel Says:

    YAY!
    The movie was so awesome.
    I dont care what the haters say, because they need to get a life (and brain surgery).
    But I hated the fact that Vanessa wasn’t in it as much as she deserves to be and when she was in it, it always had to do with Troy.

    nika Says:

    Rachel just because some of the “haters” don´t like it, doesn´t mean they need to get a life ggeezzz.

    You know, I have been hellbent on NOT seeing the HSM movies since day one. But then I watched HSM 2 today and I didn’t *hate* it. It is what it is… a cheesy, fluffy movie for the disney channel crowd. I went in expecting it to be that way, and so it was actually kinda fun to watch. Vanessa is gorgeous and there were 1 or 2 cute songs.

    I ACTUALLY ONLY LIKE THE DANCING AND I THOUGHT THEIR ACTING WAS HORRIBLE BUT STILL.

    Rae Says:

    I watched it. I haven’t seen the first one, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. It was cute. There was a lot less Vanessa than I expected- she has an inredible voice and was actually a pretty good actress- and a lot more Zac than I found really necessary. Zac is hot and has a good voice, he just got annoying and the Troy character boring pretty quickly. I loved the Ryan character. His baseball song was my favorite guy song.
