** First of all, it's [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} Max]], so his priorities may not be all there. Also, the only reason the sub shop is "a shitty restaurant" seems to be that Jerry isn't very good at running it, whereas Max opens up a wizard world version in "My Two Harpers" and is highly successful until Jerry and Justin mucked it up. For all we know, Max will actually be good at this and make the sub shop successful. It's not being a full wizard, granted, but owning a successful restaurant is nothing to sneeze at.

Getting stuck working a shitty restaurant for the rest of your life while your siblings zoom off to a magical, exciting future is a happy ending in what way? Seriously, the ending of the series was really frustrating, because why on Earth would ANYONE be satisfied with essentially being stuck as a loser for the rest of their life?

*** Because humans are not like that. Eventually, there would be an all white war, where the wizards attempt to over take the non-magic folk, or the non-magic folk attempt to overtake and use the wizards magic and magical object for their personal gain. You can find examples of this in real life. Humans are not known for holding hands and living in peace.

** Because it's normal wizard custom. The family wizard battle is simply what wizards do. It doesn't seem as if Jerry sees as anymore than an unfortunate event.

Added DiffLines:

* In all likeliness, I imagine the Wizard Council implemented the competition to prevent siblings from the off chance of getting power-hungry and turning on each other. It's essentially the same reason why the Siths have the RuleOfTwo--because before then, the Siths got too consumed with power, which created infighting, and led to the rule being implemented. In the same vein, the Wizards would not want to risk a similar incident of fighting over power. After all, power does corrupt.

[[WMG:The number of children]]
*Why did Jerry and Theresa have three children if they knew there was a possibility of a family feud involving wizard powers? Why would they want their kids to compete like that, when they could just have one child keeping the powers, especially since Jerry saw first hand what happens, with his own siblings?

** Laritate explains it as "I fit the punishment to the person, not the crime." [[RaveMaster So basically, Hitler can steal a stapler and be put on death row, but if Greta Goody-Goody (the nicest and brownnose-iest person ever) murders everyone in her grade, she gets let off with a warning.]]

**** It was just pure luck in the movie. They ''had'' to make obvious the fact that Selena Gomez is their chosen {{Disney}} star.

* They do use them every now and then, but they're just as likely to just wave their wands and get the results.
