Product Information: 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 sight see 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.

My thoughts: My oldest daughter watches the Disney Channel all the time. I will admit I do sit and watch some of the shows with her. I always enjoyed tween movies, even when I wasn’t tween. The thing is they are clean, no swearing, no violence and no sex. It’s just nice to see something that’s wholesome and entertaining at the same time.
We received a copy of the Extended Edition of StarStruck which is a Disney Channel original movie. My daughter Holly had seen bits and pieces of this movie when it was on so I knew she’d enjoy it and so would I.
Starstuck is a cute movie about a girl who meets a boy that she didn’t think she’d like very much, but ends up finding her self really into him. But it’s not that easy. They really don’t like each other at first and it’s funny watching them slowly figure it out. I enjoyed it and my daughter did too. She found it very funny at times. There is no bad language and nothing that I wouldn’t want my daughter to watch. It’s very entertaining and also educational as they learn so much about themselves.
Want to know how it ends? You’ll have to watch it for yourself.
Have you seen it? If so what did you think? Did your kids like it? It definitely got two thumbs up in this house!
Disclosure: I received a FREE copy of Starstruck the extended edition 2 disc DVD+CD for my review. This had no effect on my review and my words are my own.
