Good for pre-teen kids and an aging second plus childhood type, v1.00
21 May 2012 | by annevejbSee all my reviews

Once upon a time an aging second plus childhood type purchased Wizards Of Waverly Place, The Movie, and soon felt it sensible to stay well away from anything involving those three brats. But hints in bits of some episodes of the series, not the movie, made the aging one reconsider.

Apologies for the word 'brats'. The movie of that name, that I found to be okay.

This has the fem brat of WoWP,T Movie. But it is actually not so much brat as an okay and fairly sensitive story. There is also a fem lead of Camp Rock 2 in this and while she does a weak imitation of Robot Buffy, something that Gellar acted really well at around the age of early twenties, she is oh so much nicer in this than in Camp Rock 2.

When I was considering purchasing this I mostly looked at the Amazon UK reviews that mention it as loved by kids, less so by the parents who actually purchased it. On that basis this appeared to get glowing reviews. I found that aging second plus childhood type could really get to like this movie.

Further, from an armchair tourism angle. The feature is listed as being filmed in the Caribbean, mostly masquerading as USA, Louisiana.
