Today we’re talking about the 2011 movie Lemonade Mouth.
This movie surprised me multiple times. It was well thought out and had some nice twists. There were a few lulls that annoyed me but overall I was pleased by the story.
This is basically a Band AU of Breakfast Club and I love that about it.
There was a few awkward moments and I feel like the characters didn’t get enough attention making them more caricature then they already are. However, as far as they did get they were lovely and the actors did a fantastic job.
The dialogue in this is adorable, layered, and well thought out. It feels authentic and the line, “I’m not the same person I was two months ago.” reminds me of my high school days.
Visuals and Music
Very well shot with great stages and it avoided that “Disney Channel Sitcom” look that a lot of the original movies have.
The music was fantastic and got me to buy the soundtrack the night I watched it. Absolutely one of the catchiest and most interesting Disney Channel movie soundtracks.
It’s also great when they cast actors that can sing, dance, and play instruments.
This has all the fun of a band movie, with the fun of a detention movie, mixed with a happy teen drama. Honestly, I loved every moment.
One of the better original movies from Disney Channel. I wish I had watched it as a kid, or even when it came out.
Final Score: 4 Stars
