Even though I'm 23 years old, I still love Disney Channel shows- mainly ones like Sydney To The Max(my favorite one), Coop and Cami Ask The World, and Gabby Duran and the Unsittables. As for their Disney Channel Original Movies(or DCOMS, as they are usually called), they can be hit or miss for me. I didn't love Upside Down Magic, but I enjoyed Kim Possible and a few other ones from the last 5 years.<br/><br/>That said, Under Wraps is the most enjoyable DCOM in a long while, since Kim Possible in my view. The plot follows 3 friends- Marshall(Malachi Barton from Stuck In The Middle), Gilbert(Christian J. Simon from Sydney To The Max) and Amy(Sophia Hammons). After visiting a museum, they accidentally bring a mummy to life- one who was stolen by evil neighbors.<br/><br/>When they discover that they have to return the mummy in 3 days or it will turn to dust, they overcome the hurdles to achieve their goal- including Gilbert's fear of all things scary.<br/><br/>The most enjoyable aspect of the movie was the acting chemistry between the 3 friends. They worked great together and were believable as friends- and most notably, they all did great in their parts.<br/><br/>However, my main flaw with the movie(my removed star), goes to the unbelievable screams of one of the kids, who I will not name. You know how parents fake scream when their toddler "scares" them? This kid's screams of legitimate fear sounded like that. Apart from that critique, their acting was fine.<br/><br/>The entertainment value was great for a movie aimed at kids. I was actually on the edge of my seat often and anxious to see how the kids escaped every dangerous situation they encountered. (Darn you, commercial breaks!)<br/><br/>Not that DCOMS look bad or anything, but Under Wraps, a remake of the very first DCOM(unseen by me), looks very well done and modern for a TV kids movie. Nothing revolutionary of course, but the colors are vibrant and the camerawork is well done.<br/><br/>If you want a treat for a Halloween kid's movie rather than a trick, this is one I would highly recommend. Under Wraps mainly appeals to the elementary and middle school crowd, but I had a fun time. Families could enjoy this one together- just be wary of jump scares. I'd actually like to buy this one on DVD.<br/><br/>Note: Some DCOMs, such as Invisible Sister, do not have DVD releases. Please Disney Channel, release this one!<br/><br/>PS, I'd like to note that I am the first person to review this movie on IMDB! :)
