Best DCOM EVER! Perfect for any age to enjoy and a great family film!
29 August 2009 | by rockstar99See all my reviews

Wow, is all I can say about this movie, it was the best DCOM movie I have ever seen, The movie gave a very good family outlook with many scenes showing how the three siblings missed their parents and how they were determined to get their parents to know them. The actors in this are just flat out fantastic, I really like the TV show, but when I watched this, all the actors seemed more geared up and prepared. The chemistry of all the actors really made me like this movie, Selena Gomez once again does a great job, and the scenes in the movie between David Henrie and Selena Gomez were just unbelievable, the way they acted in every scene together was just perfect.

When I first saw the promos for this movie, I was like, oh that sounds cool, but I didn't expect it to be so good. Although the plot was a recycled one that's been used by Disney a lot, the actors breathed a new life to it with all of their amazing performances, and the special effects( although not Hollywood picture perfect) they were amazing for a disneychannel movie.

And the ending scenes of the movie were great, and once the movie was done, I was satisfied,( something that usually doesn't happen when I watch a DCOM)
