Alex D. Linz and Full Court Miracle are awesome!!!
30 June 2004 | by cloewe08See all my reviews

After watching Full Court Miracle, I said to myself "Wow I never knew that the Disney Channel could make such a good movie, this was the best Disney Channel Movie ever!" I am a huge fan of Alex D. Linz, who played Alex Schlotsky in the movie, and I thought that he did an awesome job acting. He sure is a very talented actor. The whole story about how the oil in the Jewish lamp burned for longer than was predicted and the fuel for the school's generator burned longer than predicted so the Lions could finish their basketball game in the light was very interesting. Good job Disney with this awesome movie!b Hopefully Alex D. Linz will be in many more awesome movies to come. I rate Full Court Miracle 10/10.
