Disney Channel airs these "Movie Surfers" specials (and portions as interstitials) when Disney movies are playing in theaters. Some of it is insightful and even interesting in the behind-the-scenes / inside trivia. But more often than not, it's a bunch of braindead teenagers being paid to heap praise onto the latest Disney film. I'm sure all of them have genuinely loved every single Disney film from the past 5 years. If they were worthwhile, maybe Disney would include them on the DVD releases of its films. But in general, it's a thinly-veiled effort to get kids to want to see their latest films. The benefit of having a family cable channel - something that Viacom takes good advantage of with its Nickelodeon films.
