Allmusic 3/5 stars[6]

Christopher Monger of Allmusic gave a review: Based on author Mark Peter Hughes' 2007 novel of the same name, Disney’s Lemonade Mouth follows the exploits of five disgruntled Arizona teens who bond during a stint in detention and end up starting a band—it's kind of like The Breakfast Club with a battle of the bands at the end. With 11 original songs that span teen pop, pop punk, hip hop, and rock, Lemonade Mouth (the band) tackle the usual teen subjects (self-esteem, standing by your friends in the face of adversity, following your dreams, being silly) and successfully blend the dewy-eyed romanticism of the Jonas Brothers and the quasi-rebellious angst of early Avril Lavigne, resulting in a winning, if not entirely original, collection of new High School Musical-inspired homeroom anthems.[6]
