With Miley Cyrus concert tickets being scalped for thousands of dollars and shows like “The Suite Life” breaking records on cable television, it’s always a good time to cash in on these hits with a DVD release. Disney Channel has wrapped three episodes of their hit shows into one DVD called “Wish Gone Amiss.”
The shows “Cory in the House,” “Hannah Montana” and “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” each set themselves up with a similar plot. The main stars would wish on a star, have the wish come true and then discover the pitfalls of getting what they wish for.
Cory Baxter wishes to become President, and he soon learns that he doesn’t have the responsibility for all the power when alien robots invade. Miley Stewart wishes she could be Hannah Montana all the time but soon learns the diva life takes its toll. Then Zack and Cody each wish to become superheroes, but they soon learn it takes a lot of effort to battle the super villains.
Not too long ago, the Disney Channel experimented with a similar cross-over with “That’s So Suite Life of Hannah Montana.” The DVD sold well, which I’m sure helped spawn this one. In general, if you like the shows, you should like this DVD. While the plots follow similar arcs, they each have the unique spin of the respective series.
The DVD comes with only a single bonus feature in which Jason Earles from “Hannah Montana” takes the audience through a guide of wishes.
