Never-Before-Seen Extended Ending

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

DESCRIPTION:It s a short trip from zero to hero in Minutemen, the hit Disney Channel Original Movie that mashes together outrageous comedy and awesome sci-fi adventure. And only on this DVD can you score the never-before-seen alternate ending and an exclusive time-traveling feature that takes you behind-the-scenes with the cast for a cutting-edge and funny look back at the making of the film!
Go back in time with three hi-tech heroes! To spare other kids from humiliating and totally un-cool high school experiences, seniors Virgil (Jason Dolley of Cory In The House) and his buddies invent the ultimate time machine. But when they accidentally open a black hole, they learn that turning back the clock can create a massive mess. You won t want to miss a single hilarious minute! END

High school is a time of emotional angst and turmoil that begins especially poorly for Virgil Fox (Jason Dolley of Corey in the House) and 11-year old boy genius Charlie Tuttle (Luke Benward of How to Eat Fried Worms) who are both coldheartedly embarrassed in front of the entire Summerton High School student body on the first day of their freshman year. Their shared experience does have one positive result: it leads to the forging of a close friendship that endures throughout their high school years. In their senior year of high school, Charlie discovers the key to time travel and he and Virgil enlist the help of mechanical-minded Zeke (Nicholas Braun) to create a time vortex which allows the three boys to travel back in time at will. The three pledge to use their newfound power to right the petty injustices of high school life; taking on Chelsea (Stephanie Jameson) as an assistant, and calling themselves the "Minutemen." Life is all fun, adventure, and good deeds for a while, with the only drawback being the unsavory moniker of "Snowsuit Guys." However, their time-bending activities are eventually noticed by the FBI and it soon becomes evident that their good deeds are having some serious unanticipated consequences: specifically, significant personality changes in those they help and the development of a black hole that threatens the very existence of Summerton and the entire world. As the group struggles to repair the damage their time traveling has caused, each learns an important lesson about friendship and what really matters in life. This Disney Channel original movie isn't quite High School Musical, but it is good entertainment for ages 6 and older. --Tami Horiuchi

This Disney Channel movie about time travel is really very well made and will hold your attention. 3 high school geeks band together to create a time-travel machine. Initially, one of their first attempts to use it is to buy a lottery ticket that will make them rich. I thought, "What a snooze; same old story, same old schtick." However, they are quickly foiled, and decide instead to help geeky kids be popular by preventing the humiliating experiences often thrust upon them by the popular set. There are lessons learned along the way, and our heroes soon find it is best to let life play out the way it is supposed to (cause a big Black Hole is about to swallow up the world due to their time machine). The cast is great (includes Jason Dolley from "Corey in The House") and has good chemistry. This movie is "safe" for the whole family; great to see a movie that doesn't have to rely on violence, nudity, or profanity. The Director, Lev L. Spiro, seems to have a very good understanding of fun and what makes a light and breezy movie such as this. This DVD also includes a featurette "The Making of Minutemen," which gives you details on how the movie was made (including the stunts and special effects). There is also a music video by Corbin Bleu ("High School Musical") of the song "Rung It Back Again." The usual batch of Disney DVD/Movie previews are also here. The movie is 92 minutes. Thumbs up for this great family fun movie!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Surprisingly Great Kids movie April 23, 2009
I was impressed with Minutemen. It is a clever plot line with the boy genius who is the king of the dorks (I confess - I wanted to be just like Charlie Tuttle but I was more into politics) and comes up with outlandish inventions. The fact that Jeanette chases him throughout the movie is amusing and telling. The other intriguing character is Virgil Fox who is obviously in love with Stephanie, who is more into the popular set as she dates the QB (Derek who is ambiguous in his values - not sure what his role in "The Incident" until the end and he gets French tutoring from a "hot" vacuous exchange student) but she tells Virgil first (in person) about her being accepted to the college she wanted to go and how she was to get a cheerleading scholarship before she tells her boyfriend.

The effects and responsibities of both time travel and tampering with government computer program are deftly done. Again Charlie Tuttle ends up on top, making the Pacific Tech researchers look ridiculous. It ends up changing several situations in self-serving ways. The visual effects are great for a low budget Disney TV movie.

The scene where the Minutemen have to save the world is dramatic and moving. Finally they are popular! (It's too bad that no one will know it if they go the wrong way back in time...)

The ending is satisfactory (I won't reveal it - go buy the DVD!) but the extra DVD ending is however lame.

With interesting plot lines and intriguing characters - I'd recommend that Disney find a new vehicle for the Tuttle character (perhaps along with Virgil/Stephanie and Jeanette) in college.

5.0 out of 5 stars "This is my FAVORITE movie!!!" June 25, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When I gave this movie to my 11 year old niece, she said, "This is my FAVORITE movie!!!" This is one of those rare tween movies that appeal to both boys and girls (unlike High School Musical which seems to target girls). As a parent, I am happy that Disney is making appropriate entertainment for this age group. I think if your kids enjoy "Hannah Montana", "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody", and of course, "Cory in the House", they will certainly like this movie. I enjoyed this one as much or more than most of the Disney Channel Original Movies.
