Vanessa Hudgens, Aly Michalka, Gaelan Connell and Lisa Kudrow star in a comedy about following dreams and doing what scares you. Ultra-popular Charlotte (Michalka) is determined to face-off against her ex at the country’s biggest music competition. She just needs a band. Newcomer Will (Connell) knows more about musicians than anyone. He just needs a friend. And, rebel guitar player Sa5m (Hudgens) has a wicked voice but needs someone to believe in her. Together, this unlikely trio will take on Bandslam in a way no one thought possible.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Tidy, heartfelt direction by Todd Graff (Camp); astute song references; and a David Bowie cameo transcend the formula underpinnings and keep Bandslam buoyant, gratifying and, yes, rocking.
Fresh: The bonus in this modest charmer? Not a single major female character, including Will's single mother played by Lisa Kudrow, is subjected to the usual Hollywood rom-com demonization.
Fresh: The movie has a few good tunes and some charming comic dash, at least at first.
Rotten: It feels like a missed opportunity, but perhaps is a blessing since Bandslam's dialogue is much more pat than Hughes's quotable writing.
I really enjoyed seeing this movie because there was a lot of people I know in it, it was funny, and GREAT music! 5 stars from me!
The 5 is silent this is an awso5m movie must buy!
that was great! i loved the bandslam song at the end, the brasses really made it stand out. i really like the "DO WE WANT TO ROCK!?!?!??!!/" that was very smart. if u haven't seen this movie yet then rent or buy it from iTunes. it's worth it
