  • Shoddy

    Jesse McCartney checks into the Tipton and Zack, Maddie, and London sneak into his suite and are stuck there. Meanwhile, Arwin does Cody's science project for him. This episode couldn't get worse. They should have brought Paul McCartney (Carey mentions him) and not Jesse McCartney. That would have made it a lot better. This is definitely the worst episode of Season 1.
  • Rockstar checks in, Cody cheats in science competition

    Jesse McCartney stars in this episode and the character is pretty cool. Maddie and London are at their best right now! Unbelievable, when they were dancing to Jesse's singing and when they're sleeping right next to him. Zack also had a few moments, but Arwin was just magnificent here when he helped Cody with the project.

    My favorite scene is when Arwin says he's 13, then confesses "Okay....13 1/2!"

    Go watch it and prepare to laugh!moreless
  • really funny

    Teenage girls are invading the Tiptons when a very famous celebrity Jesse McCartney checks into the hotel. Zack collects items used by Jesse and sells them on the streets. Cody is preoccupied with a science project, he gets help from Arwin when he gets some difficulty finishing his gadget. This is a really funny episode, there are so much jokes in this episode, each scene has something funny in it. The celebrity craze is played into the plot and it works so well with the jokes. Cody is not seen with his twin brother in the episode, that's something new. This is a good episode.moreless
  • not a very good episode...

    Jesse McCartney checks into the hotel and all of the girls go gaga. They are all star struck at the good -looking boy and eventually break into his hotel room so that they could steal something to sell. I did not like the story in this episode. I think they just made up a story so that Jesse McCartney could come on the show and all of the girls would watch this episode becuase they love Jesse. Overall, I did not really like anything in this episode. I guess there were a few good funny moments, but that is about it.moreless
  • This was a pretty good episode. But since I'm not a fan of Jesse McCartney it wasn't that interesting for me.

    If I was a Jesse McCartney fan I might have given the episode a 10. Maddie and London find out that Jesse McCartney is staying at the hotel and they do everything that they can think of to try to meet him. Zack is stealing Jesses stuff and selling it. And Cody is entered in a science fair. He makes a laser but then Arwin gets his hands on it and makes it better. The only problem is, Cody wasn't supposed to get any help from an adult. This was cheating and in the end Cody breaks down and admits that he cheated. There were some funny moments in this episode but like I said, If I was a fan of Jesse McCartney I might have liked it alot more.moreless

    • Jesse McCartney: Man, you are really good at this.

    • Cody: What are all these girls here for?
      Mr. Moseby: We happen to have a very famous rock star checking in this afternoon.
      Carey: It's so silly how insane women get when it comes to musicians.

      Moseby: That McCartney fellow.
      Carey: Paul McCartney?! I LOVE PAUL McCARTNEY!
      : Who's he?
