There is a scene where Helvetica proceeds to eat food and drink with her feet this is probably a reference to Quentin Tarantino (a long-time friend of Robert Rodriguez) who is known to have a foot 'fetish' and frequently uses close-ups of feet in his films. See more »

Shall we do this?
I just realized something. I know why you have them beat up on me everyday.
'Cause I hate you?
Because you love me. That's right isn't it? We're both outsiders, We're both ignored, we both have railroad tracks for braces. we're lonely and boring and always getting in trouble because we have nothing else better to do.So, you're head-over-heels in love with me and that makes you furious! Am I right?
How about... NO!

I saw this with my son (10) and his friend. I expected to fall asleep because of the poor reviews on IMDb, but to my happy surprise it awoke the inner child in me. The wishes were plausible for children and the FX were enjoyable. The two kids with me complained that they would have had better wishes than in the movie or about this and that, but they barely moved a muscle while it was playing, didn't ask for popcorn or snacks.
Overall, this is a great family film in the Disney vein of talking Herbie cars and other implausibilities that I loved as a child and am glad I saw with my child. Better than Spy Kids 2 or 3D, Shark Boy and Lava Girl.
