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.

My daughter loves Demi Lovato!
Sally
I have to say the love/hate relationship between Sonny and Chad alone makes this show worthwile and almost gives it a means to reach an adult audience.
C. Chavez
Make it a night of living togetherness as this movie shows a good moral film ready to tell you and take you away from everyday life.

This is my favorite Disney Channel show in a long time. The cast is great at playing their characters; especially Demi Lovato, Sterling Knight, and Tiffany Thornton. I have to say the love/hate relationship between Sonny and Chad alone makes this show worthwile and almost gives it a means to reach an adult audience. I'll definitely be buying the dvd.

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.

For "Sonny with a Chance: Sonny's Big Break Vol. 1', the series comes with the following episodes which are not in broadcast or production order.

It took awhile for Sonny With a Chance to grow on me. The humor was silly, but I did enjoy the characters.

The episode on this disc are:

"Sketchy Beginnings",
"West Coast Story",
"Sonny At The Falls",
"Cheater Girls",
Bonus Episode - "Sonny In The Middle"

I wish Disney would release the complete series or more volumes, but they probably never will. At least we have these five episodes on DVD.

Sneaky Disney marketing strikes again!! While my daughter enjoys the show, we were very disappointed to purchase this and find that it only contained 4 episodes...far from a whole season, not even a half season!

To be fair, the amazon reviews here do make that clear. Unfortunately, we bought the DVD set in a retail store. And looking just at the package it was FAR from clear that "Volume 1" was not only NOT a "Season 1" compilation, but that it was a measly 4 episodes! We could have bought any 4 individual episodes on iTunes for less (and forget about the measly "extras"!)

So, 4 stars for the show (my daughter would say, although I wouldn't rate it quite as high as an adult), but 0 stars for the DVD packaging.

My dvd arrived on time and in great condition. I was disappointed though. I thought that it might be the entire first season of Sonny with a chance but it wasn't. It was only four episodes.

When buying this, I thought "Volume 1" ment "Season 1"... I was mistaken. This is just the first DVD of Season 1. I wish all DVDs had the same name and way of calling it. Very confusing and it's different for every company - and even country. >.<

The young stars of Sonny with a Chance don't necessarily know the classic TV they are channeling -- The Dick Van Dyke Show, Your Show of Shows -- but perhaps the creatives behind the show do, because of all the Disney Channel shows, this is probably has the most appeal to all ages, including those who might not look twice at tween comedies.

Yes, it can be silly, but the silliness is inspired. As I learned when I interviewed several cast members, there's a chemistry between them and a junior Mary Tyler Moore/Jack Benny attitude evidenced by Demi Lovato's willingness to play the "straight man" and allow her costars to share the jokes.

The bonus episode, "Sonny in the Middle," is a good example, in which the two comic costars (Brandon Smith and Doug Brochu) have a fight and Demi's Sonny character replaces them as pals. it's the oldest gag in the book -- the sandwich chef is given gag names to call over the loudspeaker, but it's surefire and Lovato plays it with skillful timing.

This DVD contains four episodes, including the pilot, as well as Lovato's screen test. Apparently she was testing for this show and Camp Rock came along before she was given the series lead. Not surprising when you consider how many months Miley Cyrus had to test and re-test for Hannah Montana.

Sonny With a Chance is two "shows within a show:" the sketch comedy "So Random," and the wonderfully overwrought teen drama, "McKenzie Falls," starring the show's rival/love interest Stirling Knight, another young actor with comic skill beyond his years.

It will be interesting to see how this show develops over the next few seasons, between the three premises and the cast, which by the way, includes a Richard Deacon "Mel Cooley" type producer!
