    I Also Recommend:

    Not the kind of film that gets you famous.

    So every character in this movie either screws up or get screwed over, but then everything magically (musically?) works out in the end anyway. Kind of. There are so many loose ends by the finale.
    Also, the jumps from year to year were confusing, indulgent, and came at inopportune times, thus reducing this to some kind of strange mini-series without any real plot. It's basically a story about kids overcoming obstacles...but then they don't really, so the movie ends up not having a point.
    Now, I haven't seen the original "Fame" (1980), so I can't compare the two, but I can say that "High School Musical" was more enjoyable to watch than this remake. Plus, it really is kind of sad when a real Hollywood movie can't even hold a candle to "Step Up" (which was awesome).
    The acting wasn't horrible (some of these kids have talent), and I did actually come to like one or two of the characters, but I really didn't feel like the movie accomplished anything at all, much less its goals (although I'll admit to not being entirely clear on what those were in the first place). If you like stuff like "High School Musical" and don't care much for a plot, you might not hate "Fame."
    As a side note, billing Kelsey Grammer and then not really putting him in the movie--not cool.
