By Lexi

She can turn Hawaiian ladies into dogs. Who is she? Alex Russo is the mischievous 15 year old teenager from a family of wizards. Wizards of Waverly Place (the movie) continues from the episodes featuring Alex Russo, played by Selena Gomez, and her family going on a “family trip” to the Caribbean.

Released on 2009, this movie was directed by Lev L. Spiro and filmed in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The casts are: Selena Gomez as Alex Russo, Jake T. Austin as Max Russo, David Henrie as Justin Russo, María Canals Barrera as Theresa Russo, and David DeLuise as Jerry Russo.

Life is hard for Alex, who is quite sociable and chatty. She always wants to have some of her own time, to go out with her friends. Unfortunately, Alex’s personality caused her to wish her mom and dad never met, in a rush of anger. Max and Justin, suddenly confront Alex, who is fiddling with her wand after realizing her big mistake. They immediately ask a “supposed wizard” for instructions to where the Stone of Dreams is, and they divid into Alex and Justin find the stone, and Max keep guard of their parents going out with anyone else.

After almost losing their lives, the kids finally found the Stone of Dreams, glowing purple in the midst of some ruins. It took a lot of time and perspiration for Justin, since he was the big brother, to go inch by inch to the Stone. They finally get the Stone and find their father standing outside waiting for them. “You guys need to have the competition of the high wizard now! We have no time to waste! Your brother has already been sucked away from a memory tornado!!!” Alex and Justin complained that they weren’t prepared for the competition that was supposed to happen two years later after they finished their wizard training! But, their father insisted that this was the only way to save their family. Alex, of course, to everyone’s surprise, won the competition! So the family came home happily and learned their lesson together…

This movie is suitable for any age to watch and is kind of long too. I liked this movie because it has humor and frightening bits.
