Spin-off of the hit Disney Channel series "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody," in which twin brothers Zack and Cody Martin and hotel heiress London Tipton enroll in a semester-at-sea program aboard a ship called the SS Tipton.
Teddy Duncan's middle-class family embarks on a plane flight from their Denver home to visit Mrs. Duncan's parents, the Blankenhoopers, in Palm Springs - all except daughter Teddy and mother Amy, for whom a cross country odyssey begins when a chance at free plane fare leads to a curtailed bus ride, a nightmarish experience in a Yugo, hitchhiking with a pair of alien abductees, and peddling through the desert on a tandem bike. All the while, the male Duncans survive a zany Christmas with Grandpa and Grandma Blankenhooper.Written by

During the airport scene the song 'Run Rudolph Run' is playing while the Duncan family runs to their gate. This could be hinting at the 1990 Christmas classic 'Home Alone' where a similar scene with the same song is shown. See more »
After the Yugo parts are carted away, Amy and Teddy are left moping in the diner parking lot. Far away in the background is a black vehicle parked next to the nearby motel. When Teddy is filming her video diary seconds later, the vehicle is missing. See more »

Guess what, Charlie? We're one day away from going on your first trip on an airplane, and celebrating our first Christmas at Grandma and Grandpa's new condo in Palm Springs! You're going to have so much fun.

No, no, no, Mom, you have to toddler-proof the place.

No, anything breakable has to be at least three feet off the ground.

I thought this was a great movie to view with the family around the Christmas tree. I laughed several times. The only thing holding this back from 10 stars, is simply the fact of the acting. I think the series actors were better than this. Although the actors are the same, they performed differently. 8/10
