The Nickelodeon train keeps rolling out new films featuring their stars. iParty with Victorious is a movie collaboration featuring the networks two marquee programs, iCarly and Victorious, starring Miranda Cosgrove (iCarly) and Victoria Justice (Victorious)
Carly, a Seattle high school student who hosts an internet video blog, which is a viral smash, is smitten with her boyfriend Steven (Cameron Deane Stewart) of three months. They celebrate the milestone by exchanging anniversary gifts and engaging in the standard teenage public display of affection.
Meanwhile, Tori, a Los Angeles performing arts high school student, is also dating Steven, her boyfriend of three months. They also celebrate their 3-month milestone with gifts and pda's.
Things become interesting when Steven and Tori pose for a photo together and by virtue of the world wide web, Carly is made aware of it. Considering a picture is worth a thousand words, it appears Steven is two-timing both Carly and Tori, so after much pressure from her friends, Carly decides to take matters into her own hands and travels to LA where Steven is visiting Tori and investigate to find out the truth.
So, is Steven a cheat? The girls team up to find out.
iParty with Victorious also has a cameo appearance from Nickelodeon royalty Keenan Thompson, who starred in the classic Nick network shows Kenan and Kel and All That. Thompson's fictional home is the gathering spot for all of the action, including impromptu musical performances by some of the cast members.
Regulars from iCarly and Victorious make appearances and are included in various subplots; including Andre biting off more than he can chew, Rex & Robbie rubbing everyone the wrong way, Spencer and Sikowitz and the hot tub, and Cat receives doctor's orders that are difficult to obey.
iParty with Victorious is classic Nickelodeon television; popular characters who have invaded American pop culture by way the Nick marketing machine. I highly recommend it because young kids and teens alike will enjoy the silly hijinks and parents will have the opportunity to utilize the teaching moment the movie provides.
