DVD review: Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie

Wizards of Waverly Place DVD
Release date

Out now, rated U, so it's suitable for everyone.

The stars

Based on the hit Disney TV show, Wizards of Waverly Place, this film is about the Russo family and their family holiday to the Caribbean.

But, of course, everything doesn't go swimmingly because the Russos are no ordinary family. Dad Jerry (David DeLuise) is a wizard and his three kids are wizards in training.

Max (Jake Austin) is the youngest, Justin (David Henrie) is the oldest and Selena Gomez plays Alex. You might know Selena from Another Cinderella Story.

The Plot

So how many teenagers wish their mum and dad would stop nagging them and stop telling them what to do? Well it's not a good thing to wish your parents had never met if you have magic powers - and your wish comes true!!

Justin on a treasure hunt to save his family
Justin on a treasure hunt to save his family

The kids are left trying to undo Alex's unfortunate magic spell before time catches up with them and they disappear from existence.

Max looks after his parents - who now don't know each other. And Alex and Justin set off on a treasure hunt to find a magic stone that could save them.

Along the way there's a magic parrot, a wizard battle and lots of family bonding. Think Harry Potter and the Brady Bunch mixed together.

DVD Extras

You get behind-the-scene photo tours that magically come to life from each of the three young wizards.

We liked Alex playing with the magic parrot and Justin's wind-surfing stunt.

Best bits

If you like the TV show then you'll love the film. We liked the beginning with the magic underground train narrowly missing crash after crash. And we liked Giselle the parrot too.

Fave characters

The main action is between Alex and Justin, and if you're a brother or a sister then you're going to be able to relate to their love-hate relationship.

Their mum (Maria Canals Barrerra) and dad are pretty funny too.

Any weak bits?

The DVD extras aren't that magical.

Hit or miss?

Let's make this clear, this DVD isn't going to be everybody's idea of a rocking film to make you guffaw with laughter.

But it's a good family favourite for a quiet Saturday night in, with some popcorn and a duvet to snuggle under.

NR rating:

Three out of five
