Your post is a little confusing because you say you have it for DS, then say the remote and nunchuck aren't responding. I take it you actually meant for the Wii though.
I'm not aware of any bugs in the game that would cause that (at least not that I've seen) so it could just be the disk you have. Chances are if your other games work ok then it is an issue with the game disk and not the hardware.
I'd suggest returning it for a different copy (saved games will still work) and seeing if you still have the same problem. If you do then it would have to be either a corrupted save file or a hardware problem.
