Did You Know?


According to Kelly's Blatz in his coverage interview for the Canadian Press, (and in contrast to some popular belief) the precocious aging/transformation of Tyler Burns was not originally scripted, nor was it faked. Instead, it was written into the film when shooting in 2007 halted in order for Blatz to continue work on Aaron Stone. Filming resumed a year later, and by then Joey Pollari had already gone through a few mature changes. Therefore, his character's so called "puberty" was in fact real and it may be evident that the film was shot in chronological sequence. See more »

Best Disney movie in a LONG while!
29 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

WAY TO GO Disney XD! I absolutely enjoyed this movie. I can't believe how much I actually enjoyed it. I thought the actors they cast were good. Tyler (Joey Pollari) could have done a bit better with some of his lines, but other than that he was a great addition to movie! Nick (Kelly Blatz) also did a stellar job! Surprisingly, the movie's graphics were awesome! I was greatly impressed seeing as it was a movie that only appeared on television. And, the movie was pretty action-packed and still had that bit of romance in it.

The plot was very intriguing and I love how it was blocked out. It was very organized and well put together.

All in all, I really guarantee that when you have some spare time, check this movie out. You won't regret it. It really surprised me seeing as lately, Disney has been coming out with really crappy movies! Then again, this is Disney XD; A "spin-off" of the original Disney Channel. They've impressed me with most of there TV Shows that they play. And now, they've just impressed me in their movie category. I hope they continue to make more good movies, just like this one!
