Video: ‘South Park’ Spoofs ‘High School Musical’
  |  @   |  

Anyone who understands the High School Musical phenomenon will get a kick out of last night’s South Park episode “Elementary School Musical.”

In this episode, the kids at South Park Elementary School are obsessed with High School Music, except for Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny, who can’t understand the new singing and dancing craze. The foursome find that their lack of interest in HSM has made them unpopular, as Bridon, a new boy at the school who can sing and dance just like Zac Efron’s character in HSM, takes all the attention. (Watch the clip “Everyone Is Special” of Bridon’s introduction right here below.)

There’s a subplot in the episode about Bridon wanting to play basketball, but his musical-loving, slap-happy father disapproves, but it’s not as amusing as the songs the schoolchildren sing together (just like in the HSM movies, the kids break out into song and dance in the middle of a conversation). Listen closely to the lyrics of the songs throughout the episode, which you can watch in full at South Park Studios, for lines like “Do what you wanna do, as long as what you wanna do is what everybody wants you to.” The magic really happens at little after 19 minutes into the episode — I’ve watched this part about 20 times already.

Box Office Buzz: ‘Zack and Miri’ Don’t Make A No. 1 Movie
  |  @   |  

Nothing can stop the power of High School Musical 3: Senior Year, which again takes the top slot at the box office grabbing $15 million in its second week, out-earning newcomer Zack and Miri Make a Porno.

This Halloween weekend saw the debut of the Kevin Smith comedy Zack and Miri, starring Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks as two broke desperate friends who resort to making a porn movie to earn money for their bills. Too bad Zack and Miri only managed to pull in $10.6 million, not nearly enough to push HSM 3 off the top.

Coming in at #3 is the horror sequel SAW V, also in its second week, coming in with $10.1 million this week. The Clint Eastwood drama starring Angelina Jolie, Changeling, which debuted with a limited-run last week, opened wide this weekend earning $9.4 million giving it the #4 slot.

Finishing up the Top 5 this week with $6 million was another newcomer, The Haunting of Molly Hartley, the horror feature about a girl with a horrible fate that awaits her when she turns 18.

  |  @   |  

Considering it broke records for fastest and biggest advance sales ever in movie history, it comes as no surprise that High School Musical 3 took the top slot at the box office this weekend.

Earning a whopping $42 million, the G-rated Disney sequel beat out Lions Gate’s horror sequel Saw V, which earned $30.5 million. Both films had a budget of around $11 million, making each of them winners for their respective studios in their first week in theaters.

Coming in at #3 with $7.6 million was last week’s winner, Max Payne, the Mark Wahlberg big-screen adaptation of the popular video game. Holding strong at #5 was multi-week winner Beverly Hills Chihuahua, another Disney offering, with $6.9 million for a total of $78 million after four weeks.
