Young Lucy McLaughlin's father has lost his job and to help make ends meet she is sent to live with her Grandmother. To help her get over her loss, the old lady gives Lucy a magic ring which will grant her two wishes. But as always is the case with magic, what you wish for can be twisted by the granter of the wishes into something not quite what you wished for.

Sweet and wholesome
26 October 2001 | by (Sophia, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

The Ruby Ring, another story of a rich spoiled girl learning a lesson as to what is really important. I loved this movie! Of course I knew the ending, anyone with brains would know the ending to this movie, but it was an enjoyable ride. Emily Hamilton plays Lucy, the rich girl and Christien Anholt (Relic Hunter) plays Robert Langley, the boy she falls in love with when her ruby ring transports her back in time. I'm not going to tell you all about the movie, because they're all the same, but I will say this one was good. No sex or nasty stuff, no bad language so it's actually good for the kids too! Watch it, you'll enjoy it.
