Storyline

Professional magician Mystic Max hosts a reality TV show. It allows the winning three teams of minors, would be-TV directors and cameramen and the best young magicians some of them present, to go on to a final competition at Hollywood's Magic Mansion. Pushy nerd Allyson Miller was lucky enough to 'discover' Danny Sinclair, who performs unseen tricks with stunning surprise, yet often lacks any confidence. In between the competition tests, Danny goes searching for the mansion's secrets, hidden by founding magician Antonio De Milo. Finding those is only part of a confusing confrontation in which Max's part is unclear. Written by KGF Vissers

Right before the last task begins, you can hear one of the other contestants yelling: "I go on in five minutes and nothing is ready! Wardrobe malfunction!" After Danny and Alison are done talking, if you look in the background, you can see the contestant in the mirror. You then hear the same line in the background, only the contestant's mouth movements do not match up. See more »

What a great change
14 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now, the stereotypical Disney Channel movie is some "Hooray for everything!"-themed movie about a young girl/guy struggling to get through middle school/high school. This is still about a young boy (around 16) and a girl (same age) trying to help him master his magic.

Alyson Michalka doesn't stray far from her character on Phil of the Future with Alyson (wow, what a stretch with the name), perky, fun, and inquisitive. Yet her character in this movie has slightly more "oompf" than Keely.

Johnny Pacar is very good at portraying Danny, struggling to keep his powers secret and under control.

This movie strays slightly from the Disney Channel movie mold. It's a little more dark than past Disney movies, and I like the change. The writing is very good for a kid/teen movie, and the casting is done very well. The main idea of the movie is that Allyson (Michalka) is a teen producer on a new reality show trying to find the "World's Greatest Kid Magician." But all her prospects are a flop. Until she finds Danny (Pacar), that is. They move to the magic mansion, which leads to mystery, drama, and even betrayal. Well, as much betrayal as can be shown on the Disney Channel.

All in all, I commend Disney on at least trying to break out of their stereotypes with this movie. It's entertaining, and you should at least try to check it out. Michalka and Bacar have great on-screen friend chemistry, even in the beginning, when they're less than friends.

7/10
