A show within a show along the lines of iCarly
, Sonny with a Chance
is a funny Disney Channel TV sitcom about friendship, pursuing one's dreams, and doing what's right. When country girl Sonny Munroe (Demi Lovato) from Wisconsin gets a chance to star in the Hollywood teen television comedy So Random
, moving to Hollywood is a no-brainer. Full of enthusiasm and great ideas for the show, Sonny hits her first roadblock immediately upon arriving on the set in "Sketchy Beginning." It seems her self-absorbed costar Tawni (Tiffany Thornton) doesn't want Sonny sharing her dressing room or the spotlight, and she's certainly not quiet about her displeasure. When Sonny's idea for a new sketch excites producer Marshall Pikes (Michael Kostroff) and the rest of the cast, Tawni is furious, and her bad attitude winds up getting her pulled from that week's show. On the plus side, Sonny's costars Zora (Allisyn Ashley Arm), Nico (Brandon Smith), and Grady (Doug Brochu) are quickly gaining an appreciation for Sonny and her sense of humor. "West Coast Story" introduces the So Random!
cast's nemesis Chad Dylan Cooper (Sterling Knight), star of the competing teen drama McKenzie Falls
. Sonny unwittingly stirs up a hornet's nest of trouble when she swoons over Chad and winds up losing the So Random!
parking spot. Sonny tries to smooth things over with a peace picnic, but she quickly discovers that just because a concept works in Wisconsin, that doesn't mean it will work in Hollywood. In "Cheater Girls" it looks like Tawni and Sonny are finally starting to get along and work collaboratively, but geometry threatens the girls' friendship as well as their participation in that week's show. "Sonny at the Falls" is all about friendship, and when Sonny doesn't receive the support she needs from her fellow So Random!
stars, she decides to find out what it's like to be a part of the McKenzie Falls
gang. Bonus features include Demi Lovato's original audition for Sonny with a Chance
, a seven-minute melodramatic "Mackenzie Falls Season Finale Cliffhanger," and the bonus episode "Sonny in the Middle," in which best friends Nico and Brady turn against one another thanks to Sonny's joint birthday gift. (Ages 7 and older) --Tami Horiuchi
