Dream vacation? Dream on! Ren, Louis, and the entire Stevens family battle ferocious squirrels, angry natives -- and one another -- on the adventure of a lifetime. Christy Carlson Romano and Shia LaBeouf star in this hilarious movie inspired by the hit Disney Channel original series. Out of the blue, the Stevens win an all-expense-paid trip to a secluded hideaway on the sunny isle of Mandelino. This is just what they need to get away from everyday stress. Unfortunately, their too-good-to-be-true week in paradise has actually been set up by a new "extreme reality" television series. And in a quest for blockbuster ratings, the show's unscrupulous host will try to turn the family's dream vacation into a savagely funny nightmare!
Capitalizing on the popularity of the Disney Channel's long-running series Even Stevens, The Even Stevens Movie follows the Stevens family in a rare moment of good fortune. Seems they've won a dream vacation to the tropics, but even a free vacation isn't always a dream. There's the usual bumbling by Louis (Shia LeBeouf), but also the family seems to be getting split up and turned against each other. Sure enough, the Stevens family is actually the unsuspecting victim on a reality show called Family Fakeout, and everyone back home in Sacramento is watching every minute of their frustration and misery. Worst of all, Ren (Christy Carlson Romano) seems to have finally met a nice boy, unaware that he's just an actor hired to romance her. The Even Stevens Movie is typically lightweight Disney Channel fare, but it should entertain fans of the series and provides a good showcase for its two young stars, LeBeouf and Romano. --David Horiuchi

Mandelino. However, they are being set up as subjects for an extreme reality television series. This is a good family comedy. Also, it is a proverbial span in a bridge to see why Christy Carlson Romano and Shia LaBeouf graduated from child stars to adult actors. Good viewing for the whole family with hidden messages for good relationships in comedy vignettes! Enjoy!
There are some cheesy parts throught out the feature (do realize that it was a made for tv movie) like when Shia completely destroys the natives' sacred temple and when some of the family members are chased down by a rabid squirrel. As with most Disney movies, The Even Stevens Movie contains the concepts of friendship, family, and love.
If you are a fan of the show or of just good, made for tv, family movies than I believe you would enjoy this movie.
The plot was kind of silly, but that is just how the show was in general. The Stevens family "wins" an all expense paid trip to an island that no one has ever heard of only to find out that they're on a reality TV show.
I really liked how they wrapped up the school year in the first 15 minutes (Ren was graduating from junior high).
Christy Carlson Romano (Ren Stevens) truly outdid herself in this movie. She is hilarious and dramatic--both at the same time! I really enjoyed her performance, especially when she was going mad running after Louis. Totally unexpected from her character, but I really enjoyed it. Shia LeBouf (Louis Stevens) was his usual silly self. He and Beans (Steven Anthony Lawrence) caused mayem during the graduation, which was expected but I loved it nonetheless. When the family was on the "island" I found him very enjoyable when he kept running after a squirrel (and then eventually running from Ren). All in all, Shia shined in the movie.
Tom Virtue and Donna Pescow (Steve and Eileen Stevens) were great. Both are wonderful actors.
Anyway, if you're a fan of Disney Channel and/or of Even Stevens the series, I highly recommend this movie to you!
