Shake It Up Stars Belle Thorne and Zendaya and Stefanie Scott of ANT Farm star in this latest Disney Studio teen offering Frenemies. It's a tribute to today texting culture. And it's a trilogy.
Act I is your boy and dog story with Nick Robinson as a science geek and his best friend, his dog Murray who is real intuitive and smarter than a lot of people. Also he's a good judge of character as he spots how shallow teen queen Scott is and the girl for him is Mary Mouser. After all anyone who is an animal lover has got plenty going for them.
Taking center stage in Act II are bloggers Belle Thorne and Zendaya who go to school with Robinson, Scott, and Mouser and have recorded their story for posterity. The two best girl buds are put to an acid test when they compete for a position with Jessalyn Wanlim's magazine and her character is a light version of Meryl Streep in The Devil Wears Prada. Will friendship trump ambition? This is a Disney Studio production so you know the answer.
The third Act is a female version of The Prince And The Pauper as Mary Mouser meets her rich teen princess look alike and both decide they'd like to live the other's life and do for a week. The consequences aren't quite like the Mark Twain story where the fate of a kingdom was in the balance. Still with a high school musical type finale it all ends on a high note.
Not a bad film, I liked the first story best, but then again I'm a cat lover and no one comes between him and me.
