Across the Universe IS the worst movie I've ever seen. High School Musical is just as terrible.
With High School Musical... there have been 3 High School Musicals. THREE!
However, I am dubbing Across the Universe LESS kool than High School Musical.
Reason: Across the Universe had potential. High School Musical is like Kidz Bop,* in the fact that both were created for specific group, and each succeeded in that age group.
*note: Kidz Bop shall now be referred to as Kids Bop. It is not kool enough to use a Z in place of an S.
