'Sonny with a Chance: Sonny's Big Break'
(Demi Lovato, Tiffany Thornton, et al / DVD / G / 2009 / Walt Disney Video)

Overview: Sonny Munroe takes Hollywood by storm in Sonny With A Chance, the fresh new comedy about a show within a show! In Volume One: Sonny s Big Break get to know Sonny from the very beginning with four hilarious episodes that will have the whole family laughing out loud! Plus, enjoy a bonus episode of the show, the Mackenzie Falls Season Finale Cliffhanger Short, and Demi's original audition!

DVD Verdict: From the writer and producer who has worked on popular animated titles such as "The Fairly Odd Parents", "Danny Phantom" and "Family Guy" comes the Disney Channel series "Sonny with a Chance" starring pop star Demi Lovato.

The series started airing on February 2009 and I have to admit that among the Disney Channel shows that I have watched with my son, "Sonny with a Chance" is actually quite enjoyable and highly entertaining.

The series revolves around an Internet star named Sonny Munroe (Demi Lovato) who is from Wisconsin. She and her mother Connie (Nancy McKeon, "Facts of Life") move to Hollywood for Sonny's first major television role, to be part of the popular sketch comedy show "So Random!".

Joining her on the show is the diva Tawni Hart (Tiffany Thornton), the comedic best friends Nico (Brandon Smith) and Grady (Doug Brochu) and the youngest member of the group, and also quite odd at times, Zora (Alllisyn Ashley Arm). Along with the show's producer Marshall Pike (Michael Kostroff), the group comes up ideas for their sketch show for the week and trying to maintain their grades in school.

But all is not easy for Sonny, which she soon discovers. Her castmate Tawni who likes all the attention to her self is not so thrilled she has to share the show with another girl and also, the cast of the teen drama "Mackenzie Falls" led by actor and teen hearthtrob Chad Dylan Cooper (Sterling Knight) have been at war with the cast of "So Random!". Testing Sonny's allegiance since she is a big fan of Chad but now part of a show despised by him and his castmates.
