Starstruck Extended DVD Review

My daughter, and wife wanted to see this, and it happened that we were offered to review the movie.  On one hand she said that it seemed like another “Hannah Montana” type movie, but on the other hand she said that it was a movie that she feels most kids should be able to follow, and possibly even relate to.  The cast did an excellent job, and the extras that come in the combo pack were a bonus that she loved.

BURBANK, Calif., April 2010 — StarStruck a hit Disney Channel Original Movie, will debut on DVD June 8, 2010 with more movie and music — available in two ways: as a single DVD or a 2 disc set that includes the DVD+ Full Length Soundtrack CD. Each exciting release contains a never-before-seen exclusive extended scene and additional music with eight Rock-Along tracks and three music videos. The 2 disc set includes the DVD, plus the Walt Disney Records CD soundtrack with chart-climbing songs performed by stars Sterling Knight and Brandon Mychal Smith (“Sonny With A Chance”) among others. Both products (the DVD and 2-disc DVD+CD) will be available in stores June 8, 2010 from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment (WDSHE).

StarStruck a music and adventure-filled romp that hits all the right notes for kids and tweens, tells the story of Jessica Olson (Danielle Campbell, Prison Break) and her older sister Sara (Maggie Castle, Time Traveler’s Wife), who are heading to Hollywood from Kalamazoo, Michigan, on a family trip to visit their grandmother. Sara is obsessed with pop star Christopher Wilde (Sterling Knight, Sonny with a Chance) and hopes to track him down while in California, but Jessica could care less about the stuck-up star and would rather go sightseeing. When the sisters arrive in L.A. Sara takes Jessica on a hunt to find Christopher and a chance meeting with the star sets off a series of comic adventures that feature many of L.A.’s landmark locations. As the sisters sightsee and spend time together, Jessica gets to know the real Christopher and soon their friendship grows. Ultimately Christopher must decide what is more important — being himself or becoming a movie star. Disney Channel stars Brandon Mychal Smith (Sonny With a Chance) and Chelsea Staub (JONAS) also star as Christopher’s loyal best friend and fame hungry girlfriend, respectively.
