Editorial Reviews

Tara Adams (Debby Ryan: Jessie, The Suite Life on Deck) is just an ordinary high school junior... except for one little thing. Tara’s got a secret—a secret identity, in fact; she’s Radio Rebel, the most popular radio DJ in Seattle. In person, Tara is as shy as they come, but on the air, Radio Rebel is the smoothest talker around—a skill she needs more than ever right now, since her school is in the midst of a clique-crisis. Radio Rebel gives voice to all kids, popular and unpopular alike, and questions the status quo, to the chagrin of her school's administration. Now, with the principal hot on the trail of Radio Rebel’s true identity, and mean girl Stacy coming between her and cute boy Gavin, Tara must decide between keeping her identity a secret, or being true to herself… and risk losing everything.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Movie for Tweens July 25, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A good movie for tweens. Both granddaughters liked it and it kept their attention throughout the movie but we all agreed that it was pretty predictable. They took it home to watch again tho.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kids will be Kids June 18, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I got this for my granddaughter and watched part of it with her. It was not to my liking, but she liked it very much. So my review is biased with age and culture differences.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspiration for shy people everywhere! May 29, 2013
By Valerie
After reading the book that was the inspiration for Radio Rebel, I couldn't help but check the movie out. I was initially a bit skeptical; I thought it might be overly immature and cheesy since it was made by the Disney Channel... but I was actually pleasantly surprised by what the movie held.

This is a squeaky clean flick (thank you, Disney!); I can't remember even a trace of innuendo or bad language. It would be completely safe for any member of the family to watch. It's set in high school and most of the characters are school age, so occasionally it does have a slightly "young" feel, but not extremely so. I thought the characters were cast pretty well, especially Tara.

There's a nice amount of comedy, and while some might consider it cheesy-comedy, I couldn't help but laugh at the antics. Is it completely realistic? No... but I found it entertaining anyway. It's a very "up" feeling film, with an overall happy-go-lucky vibe.

I admit the book and movie are wildly different, but both have their own merits. If you're familiar with the book, I advise trying to view the movie as a completely separate piece of work...while the stories do loosely parallel each other(somewhat), hardly anything is completely the same, aside from the radio station name--SLAM FM. If you're willing to set aside the book and look at the film as a separate piece of work, I think you'll find it fairly entertaining. :)

3 1/2 Stars for fans of Disney Channel Movies
2 Stars for Everyone Else

I'll be the first to admit that I am not the intended target for Disney Channel original programming. But a number of their recent movies have had enormous cross-over appeal whether from infectiously bad pop songs, likable leads, or just by qualifying as silly fun. I know the network has been trying to position Debby Ryan as the next big thing, and fans of "Jessie" (among other projects) will likely flock to "Radio Rebel." But I'm not sure that I see a superstar quality as much as I see a pleasant and nice young lady. This movie really plays as a pint-sized and thoroughly scrubbed version of Christian Slater's cult hit "Pump Up The Volume." It serves a positive message, for sure, in that everyone should be happy with who they are. But aside from that affirmation, "Radio Rebel" falls a bit a short in comparison to other Disney efforts. It offers little in the way of surprises or originality, and the humor isn't strong enough to overcome a rather lackluster and familiar plot.

Ryan plays a painfully shy girl in what appears to be Seattle's most squeaky clean high school. She experiences all the regular issues such as an unrequited crush and being on the outside of the popular clique. But she yearns to be accepted for who she is! A popular radio figure has captivated the entire school with her up-with-people podcasts. Known only as Radio Rebel, everyone (aside from the cartoon villains) are enchanted by the mysterious voice. Just by uttering familiar platitudes about acceptance, she has revolutionized the way people think about themselves! This is such a goldmine of originality (not so much), a local station picks her up for a city-wide broadcast. Poor Seattle!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in show for underdog (shy) February 22, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Love this movie--want to hand it out to every girl who is shy, brilliant and underachieving. This pulls the wool cover off the eyes--a great wake up call without the pressure. It's all about choice and following the dream at any cost--and this is the tale of this movie. It's a life changer.
