Trivia

Sterling Knight only sang Starstruck. The rest of the songs were sang by Drew Ryan Scott, because Knight was cast late in the process and did not have time to learn all the songs. See more »

Goofs

The drivers license shown for Sarah at the airport is the wrong type since she is under 21. It should have been vertical instead of horizontal; all minors (under 21) in the state of Michigan have been issued with vertical id's since July 1, 2003. See more »

Didn't made me starstruck
10 April 2010 | by StartingAllOver14See all my reviews

You shouldn't expect terms as «Labor of Love» or «creative enjoyment» being relevant descriptions of the current Disney Channel movies, especially in their current way of milking out their stars (the «High School Musical» flicks are relevant examples of that). Fortunately, some of the DC films have turned out to be actually quite passable, like «Princess Protection Programme», «Jump In» and «Wizards of Waverly Place The Movie» (although this is embarrassing to admit, but I genuinely enjoyed «Camp Rock» and felt it was put a little bit of heart and soul into the story). Unfortunately, the same can't be said about their latest effort, «StarStruck», which is a lifeless and soulless attempt of a TV movie.

First of all, both the plot and the movie it self are completely shallow, pedestrian and clichéd. It could least been worked with some finesse, but «StarStruck» is completely dull and unoriginal. There are absolutely no inventive or clever twists in its predictable and worn-out story, which by the way has a few plot holes and drowns it self into sentimentality during the third act. Or you could simply just called this flick «Hannah Montana The Movie» with a male pop star.

None of the acting is noteworthy, with the exception of Sterling Knight. Not that he delivers a profound role, but the consideration that he's played an anonymous loner in «17 Again» and the self-absorbed Chad Dylan Cooper in «Sonny With A Chance» proves that this guy has acting potential. Sterling Knight plays the pop star Christopher Wilde in this one and gives the character both charm and spunk. The girl lead, Danielle Campbell, is extremely cute, but has been given a rather thankless role. Some of the IMDb-users have proclaimed her as annoying. Well, that isn't a coincidence, since the screenwriters haven't given her character substance nor depth. But it's not her fault, though. She and Sterling has a bit of chemistry, but she constantly gets out shined by him. She does however pull out some emotional moments well, but overall portrays Jessica as a flat character without substance or personality. Now I'm just wondering if Disney is going to promote her as the next Hilary Duff, Miley Cyrus or Selena Gomez.

Maggie Castle as Jessica's sister Sara, who's obsessed with Christopher Wilde, is extremely annoying and shallow in her part. It's also a pity that the likable and charismatic Chelsea Stub (Stella in «JONAS») has been given a thankless role.

And there's the music of this movie. Since this is another pop star concept, there's ought to be some songs and of course some really mainstream ones, too. But while «High School Musical», «Camp Rock» and «Hannah Montana» at least had some catchy and hummable songs, the soundtrack of «StarStruck» is mainstream, bland and uninspiring, just as the movie itself. The only passable song is the rap tune «Party Up», performed by Brandon Smith (Nico in «Sonny With a Chance»).

Overall, if you're looking for a good DC movie, look everywhere besides «StarStruck», which is an uninspired and soulless money-attempt from Disney.
