Top 50 (5) Disney Channel movies Ranked


The Disney Channel has put out many, many movies over the years.
Here is Buzzfeed's Definitive Ranking of these movies.

6. Cadet Kelly (2003)


Let’s be real: Kelly Collins was basically Lizzie McGuire uprooted to George Washington Military Academy, where she was under the surveillance of her stepdad (aka “Sir,” aka Gary Cole) and her cadet captain (Disney Channel favorite Christy Carlson Romano). With the addition of some ribbon dancing and future Iceman Shawn Ashmore, plus the important life lesson about staying true to oneself while testing your limits, Cadet Kelly withstands the test of time.

5. The Cheetah Girls (2003)


If there was any upside to the deterioration of 3LW, it came in the form of The Cheetah Girls, the less-often-recognized-but-thoroughly-enjoyable trilogy among the DCOM series. A) Raven-Symoné plays a young diva named Galleria, B) Kiely Williams moved on from “promithes, promithes” to take on the role of Aquanetta, and C) The Cheetah Girls had more girl power in their animal-printed newsboy caps than the Spice Girls. You know you still have “Cinderella” in your iTunes.

4. High School Musical (2006)


The Disney Channel Original Movie that revived the Disney Channel Original Movie for a slightly different generation was admittedly even a favorite among those who enjoyed the Wish Upon A Stars of the collection. The Grease-like musical introduced us to Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, and a slew of future Dancing with the Stars cast members as well as the second best song in the DCOM arsenal: “We’re All In This Together.” (It’s OK if you’re singing it now and doing the dance moves in your head. No judgment here.)

3. Smart House (1999)


Today, we have wi-fi lightbulbs, and Apple recently announced you’ll soon be able to tell your iPhone you want to get ready for bed, so would you dim the lights, please? But these technological advancements are nothing compared to the true “smart house,” a kind of mid-century housewife Siri named Pat (Katey Segal!) that Ben Cooper (Disney mainstay and eventual Pretty Little Liars star Ryan Merriman) and his family win in some sort of raffle.

2. Brink! (1998)


It’s the late ’90s, a Friday night, and you and your friends or siblings are huddled around one of those little TV sets that has a built-in VCR. What are you watching? Probably Brink!. If it wasn’t the first DCOM you saw, it was probably the one that got you hooked. Brink! tells the story of a talented inline skater who wrestles with the option of leaving behind his crew of “soul” skaters and selling out for sponsorships to help out his struggling family — but being forced to hang out with a bunch of assholes. The movie goes through all the hallmarks of a classic DCOM — a completely random but cool-looking sport, the nice guys and the mean guys, and a good-hearted kid who wants to help his dad’s business. In the end, the good guys win. Because that’s the way it should be.

1. Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century


When kids of the ’90s talk wistfully about DCOMs, it usually goes something like this: “OMG! Remember Zenon?” And of course, how could you not remember the greatest DCOM of all time, with its campy space station lifestyle, Raven Symoné, glittery sartorial choices, and beloved music? Zoom zoom zoom, you make my heart go boom boom, Zenon. Always.

List #55-#7 @ The Source

ONTD, What was your fave Disney Channel movie?
Mine are: "Wish Upon A Star", "Stepsister From Planet Weird", "Phantom of the Megaplex", "Zenon", and "Smart House"

I think they left out "Genius"...
