Better than Most of the Trash Disney Channel Churns Out
Cute buddy comedy with good acting, a decent plot, and a satisfying ending. Solid performances from Sean Giambrone, Chris Gauthier, and Joey Bragg, which is the best we could we hope for with the material they had to work with. Unfortunately, this is a "great" TV movie when compared to the usual dreck that we've come to expect from the Disney Channel these days.
I remember when the House of Mouse used to care about their product (the late 90's early 00's). I truly miss the clever writing, direction, and editing of Kim Possible, Phil of the Future, Even Stevens, and Lizzie McGuire. Since Gravity Falls and Phineas & Ferb were cancelled, the only decent Disney shows currently in production are Star vs. and Penn Zero; the rest are just a waste of time. Disney needs to hire a new programming director, and I would happily take that job.
