My eleven year-old daughter is my primary viewer of movies of this type (my son likes them too, but doesn't like to admit that as he thinks they are "girly"). She's also a very literal child so once we got past the statements like, "I just don't understand why Alex wouldn't want to go on vacation! I LOVE going on vacation!" and "I don't know why she would wish her parents had never met!" she actually enjoyed the movie a lot.
This is a good family film. The concept of family of wizards is really cute and if you've ever seen the show, it's fun and fast-paced. Putting the characters in a movie allows you to get to "know" them a little better. Sure, there are still funny one-liners and physical comedy, but there were more touching moments than you would normally see in the television episodes. I liked both the parents more in this movie than in any of the episodes I had ever seen. And that Selena Gomez (Alex) is really a very talented actress! I think we will continue to see her in more and more diverse roles.
I liked this movie even more than I thought I would. You don't have to already be a Wizards of Waverly Place fan to enjoy this movie, but it's likely you will become one after watching it!
