Wish Gone Amiss

For lovers of the Disney Channel's Cory in the House, Hannah Montana and the Suite Life with Zack and Cody, Wish Gone Amiss is a collection of three similar themed episodes. It should also be noted that this disc is solely aimed at fans of all three series and even though the more mature viewer may get a few laughs from the episodes, however it's generally for younger viewer.

My personal favourite from the collection is the episode with Cory in the House which is quite witty at times that my three teenager daughters thoroughly enjoyed. The other two episodes were almost as entertaining, although much the story and humour is targeted at the younger viewer. Even though the humour is quite clichéd at times, all three episodes play well and it's great to see some of these younger actors before they became house hold names.
 
Cory in the House: Gone Wishin
After his entrepreneurial instincts lead to burnt presidential sweet potato pies, Cory (Kyle Massey) wishes he was the President and instantly gets his wish. In this vision, kids have elected Cory into the White House, where he has put his young friends into positions of power. While he gets everything he wants, Cory still shuns responsibility, which puts everyone in danger when they start turning into an army of magnetic alien robots.
 
Hannah Montana: When You Wish You Were the Star)
Having to turn down a night out with Jesse McCartney (Disney Channel's favorite guest "star" plays himself) makes Miley (Miley Cyrus) wish she could be Hannah all the time. When she wakes up, we're treated to an It's a Wonderful Life scenario, with bodyguard Roxy (Francis Callier) filling the Clarence the angel role. Needless to say, dropping her secret has wide mixed consequences for Hannah and everyone she knows, from lax home schooling and a boyfriend to Jackson (Jason Earles) being a bearded beach hermit and Robby Ray (Billy Ray Cyrus) being married to an unloving woman (Sara Erikson).
 
The Suite Life of Zack & Cody: Super Twins
Zack and Cody (Dylan and Cole Sprouse) wish for super powers and get them; Zack acquires superspeed, while Cody becomes telekinetic. Things get supersilly when Tipton manager Moseby (Phill Lewis) becomes the supervillain Meanager and, using hotel staff members as minions and pawns, plans to change the world with a device known as the Adultifier.

The video quality of the presentation is a transfer from the original TV broadcast which features good images and vibrant colours. The soundtrack is Dolby Digital 5.1 which goes hand in hand with the video quality and although nothing spectacular is quite ample during all elements of the three episodes. 

For special features, it includes a great backstage Disney pass that includes Jason Earles in a guide to making wishes and is quite colourful and entertaining. Definitely one for teenagers and... yes... some adults!
