Wizards Return: Alex vs. Alex

I love Wizards of Waverly Place. The show ended and Selena Gomez has 'grown up.' Disney announced a sequel film, but I thought it was going to be like the Wizards movie that was 2 hours (with breaks) but no, it jut like the TV show, it is just a special. It is an one hour TV special with those annoying laugh tracks. The movie version had no laugh tracks. In this special, Justin Russo (David Henrie) is not present. Selena plays two different Alexes, which gets bad when Mason has to do a choice between the two and picks the wrong one in an uninspired cliche moment, which is a bit unlike Wizards. Also superhunk Beau Mirchoff (Desperate Housewives and Awkward) plays the lead villain but is not shirtless though the whole thing, he has nice abs. Even AUstin gets shirtless in Austin and Ally and he is under 18. Anyway, it was a good effort but I wish it was longer, had a bigger budget and didn't have that annoying laugh track, didn't Selena deserve better?
