Plot[edit]

Zoey Stevans (Zendaya) is an average 17-year-old girl who has just moved in with her step father and 4 other boys. Her brother Adam (Adam DiMarco) is always in a rush due to being Captin of the Basketball Team. The yougest one Ben (William Ainscough) is always getting dirty. The middle child: Zach (Conner Cowie) has a habbit of making disgusting mixtures (like Pankacke Mix). Their dad: Ted (Alexis Paunovic) is the Basketball team's coach who wakes everyone up at 6:30 in the morning to be prepared. When Zoey arrives at her High School, Adam quickly abandons her and she makes a unlikey friendship with Rachel (Chanelle Peloso) who shows her to her class.

However, Rachel leads her to the wrong side of the school and she walks in on a Science Class. She is escorted by Jackson Kale (Spencer Boldman) to her room (East 242) and is watched by Taylor Dean (Emilia McCarthy). Later she arrives at Dance Tryouts however learns that the Pancacke Mix that Zach made is all over her shoes. When she mixes Taylor's reoutine with her own, Taylor shows her up and sends her and Rachel to the J.V. (Junior Varsity) Team. She goes home to find out the Family Dog: Humphreys destroyed her room. Her phone is later thrown out the window and slid down a Solar Panel and landed in Humphrey's food bowl. The phone dryes out overnight. Zoey arrives at Practice but learns her group is entirely male and dances horribly. Her phone app: Dog Control Malfunctions and gives commands to boys. She uses the app on her team and it works. When the Principal sees The Junior Varsity Team better than the Varsity Team, he proposes a challenge: Dance Off, J.V. Team vs. Varsity Team. When Jackson walks in and sees Zoey showing up Taylor he leaves and Zoey chases him down using the app to make him kiss her. Zoey uses the app on her brothers and step dad, making them quieter, more focased, Cleaner and Helthier.

When Zoey learns that Adam has College Scouts, she tries to reverse it but dosn't know how. The Principal changes the date of the Dance Off to the night of the Basketball Tornament. When Taylor steals her phone, she tries to find out how Zoey controls boys but fails until Yuki (Louriza Tronco) Figures it out. At the game, moments before it starts, Taylor walks in and controls every male in the room. Zoey steps in (and one by one the rest of her family come in) and pursades Taylor to use it on her. At the end Rachel tackles Taylor and the game begins. Zoey figures out how to reverse the app with the word Release, smashes her phone and throws it out, much to Taylor's horror. The Game begins and Adam's team wins. The Dance Off Begins and as it turns out, The J.V. Team wins, with their own creation. At the end it is shown the Zoey and Jackson are dating and Taylor is suspended.[2]
