Based on the popular (and recently canceled) Disney Channel sitcom Even Stevens, this made-for-TV movie was filmed in 2002 under the title The Stevens Get Even. On this occasion, the Sacramento-based ... read more read more...Stevens family is reeling from a succession of setbacks, not least of which is the breakup of the romance between teenaged daughter Ren Stevens (Christy Romano) and her boyfriend -- a disaster largely brought about when Ren's pesky kid brother, Louis (Shia LaBeouf), sabotages Ren's junior-high graduation. At their most vulnerable, the kids' parents Eileen (Donna Pescow) and Steve (Tom Virtue) are highly receptive to fast-talking vacation agent Miles McDermott (Tim Meadows), who sells the family an inexpensive trip to an island paradise. En route, the Stevens' plane crashes on a seemingly uncharted isle, forcing the family, and the other passengers, to fend for themselves. What nobody but the duplicitous McDermott knows is that the crash was carefully rigged, so that the Stevens would be unwitting contestants on a Survivor-like TV reality series. In addition to the aforementioned Romano, LaBeouf, Pescow, and Tom Virtue, other carryovers from the original sitcom include Nick Spano as Donnie Stevens and Steven Anthony Lawrence as the family's wacky next-door neighbor, Beans. Filmed on location in Hawaii, The Even Stevens Movie made its Disney Channel debut on June 13, 2003. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Blah. As a kid, I loved the show. As an adult, I hated this movie. I don't know why.. just not my cup of tea.

    Grade: F

    A fun continuation of the show, yet it was not really where it should have been. It's more of a vacation movie than a family sit com. While there's nothing wrong with that, I was too invested with the characters to have it end this way. However, I can't say that I didn't laugh or... read more enjoy Lewis destroying native island traditions.

    My ex bf got me into watching this show...well, I only watched it when I went over to his house...he was such a kid.

    Shia LaBeof has always annoyed me. Always. And I don't like how it satirizes reality TV. Reality TV is my darling.

    Maybe kids (the fans of the show) will like it, and it has a a funny moment here and there, but overall, it blows chunks.

    I loved the show -- I found it entertaining and clever, for the most part, in a "just-want-to-chill" way. Nothing earth-shattering, but a fair way to spend 30 minutes while not necessarily wanting to spend too much time or brainpower on the show. However, the movie just didn't do... read more it justice -- the premise is sort-of silly (which I suppose could have been expected) and a bit too drawn out for my taste -- honestly, an exploitation of the concept, whereas it could have been either more succint or given additional action/concept.
