Overview

One of a handful of live-action series on cable's Disney Channel, the weekly, half-hour The Suite Life of Zack and Cody starred real-life twins Dylan Sprouse and Cole Sprouse as the 12-year-old lookalike Martin siblings Zack (the reckless one) and Cody (the sensible one). The boys were abruptly relocated when their mother Carey Martin (Kim Rhodes), a professional singer, landed a longtime gig at the Tipson, the poshest hotel in Boston. Now living in their mom's luxurious upper-floor suite, Zack and Cody took full and hilarious advantages of all the hotel's creature comforts and preferred-customer services. Curbing their enthusiasm was Maddie Fitzpatrick (Ashley Michelle Tisdale) the hotel's no-nonsense teenaged gift shop clerk, who occasionally babysat for the boys. Others in the cast were Phill Lewis as huffy hotel manager Mr. Moseby; Brenda Song as the hotel owner's spoiled and capricious daughter London Tipton, a character blatantly patterned on Paris Hilton; and Adrian R'Mante as the wisecracking bellboy Esteban. Debuting March 18, 2005, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody joined the Saturday-AM lineup of the Disney Channel's sister network ABC the following fall.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
One of the Disney Channel's most popular series makes its DVD debut with this five-episode mini-marathon. Dylan and Cole Sprouse star as 12-year-old twins Zack and Cody, who live the carefree, run-amuck life of Eloise at Boston's swanky Tipton Hotel, where their mother Kim Rhodes performs. Zack and Cody are a tween Odd Couple: Cody is "sweet and sensitive," unathletic, and "good at math"; Zack is a hapless hustler whose schemes are usually a prelude to getting the pair grounded. The Tipton is also home to exasperated manager Mr. Moseby Phill Lewis, wacky janitor/inventor Arwin Brian Stepanek, responsible candy store clerk Maddie High School Musical's Ashley Tisdale, and spoiled, self-absorbed hotel heiress London any resemblance to Paris Hilton is probably not coincidental. In "Rock Star in the House," pop idol Jesse McCartney causes Hard Day's Night havoc among the guests, including Zack, who sneaks into Jesse's room in search of personal items he can sell "on the street." In "Kisses and Basketball," Zack's friendship with a tomboy teammate is fouled up when she kisses him after a big win. In "Odd Couples," Maddie helps London try to impress a visiting merit scholar High School Musical heartthrob Zac Efron. In "French 101," all's fair in love and war when Zack and Cody vie for the attentions of a French girl. In "A Midsummer's Nightmare," romantic confusion reigns onstage and off during a school production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. Like That's So Raven, The Suite Life is TV fast food; easy to digest but nutritionally empty. The occasional clever line and odd bit of business such as an homage to A Night at the Opera's classic stateroom scene in "Odd Couples" may keep adult viewers from demanding an early checkout.
