About the film:
When gifted singer-songwriter Charlotte Banks (Michalka) asks new kid in town Will Burton (Connell) to manage her fledgeling rock band, she appears to have just one goal in mind: go head-to-head against her agotistical musician ex-boyfriend, Ben (Porter), at the biggest event of the year, a battle of the bands.

Against all odds, their band develops a sound of its own with a real shot at success in the contest. Meanwhile, romance brews between Will and Sam (Hudgens), who plays a mean guitar and has a voice to die for. When disaster strikes, it's time for the band to make a choise: Do they admit defeat, or face the music and stand up for what they believe in?

ok honestly enough of the same old "high school musical" stuff...

...and Ryan Donowho can do so much better than being in a movie with Aly and Vanessa Anne Hudgens...plz he is so much better off then being in a childish movie with them and he gets little credit being just "the drummer" ...he has so much potential and should be in better movies ..not with little stupid Disney channle stars.
