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 »

Synopsis: A young boy living in a cookie-cutter suburb gets hit on the head with a rainbow-colored rock that grants wishes to anyone who holds it in this family-oriented fantasy comedy from Spy Kids director Robert Rodriguez. All the houses in Black Falls look exactly the same, and everyone who lives in this suburban Shangri-la works for Black Box Unlimited Worldwide Industries Incorporated. A highly profitable company thanks to their latest invention, Mr. Black's Black Box -- an all-in-one communication device that's revolutionized the technological landscape - - Black Box Unlimited Worldwide Industries Incorporated also employs the parents of 11-year-old Toe Thompson. But Toe isn't entirely sold on the concept of this corporate conglomerate; all he wants is to make some new friends, and that wish comes true after Toe is struck in the head by a mysterious rainbow-colored rock that falls right out of the clear blue sky. A magical stone that puts Mr. Black's Black Box to shame, Toe's rock possesses the power to grant wishes. Now, as the rock begins to change hands, Black Falls is overrun by miniature spaceships, crocodile armies, boogers the size of boulders, and whatever other oddities the imaginative local kids happen to dream up. Who would have thought that the real trouble would start once the grown-ups in town get their hands on the mysterious rock? With the situation quickly spiraling out of control, it's up to Toe and his friends to save the townspeople from themselves by proving to them that the things you wish for may not actually be the best things for you.

Review: So this was a Family comedy adventure movie back then that i saw on DVD. i use to see movies on DVDs a lot in those days, i mean 2009 and early 2010. i thought i will have a nice time watching this light hearted family movie directed by Rodriguez and it looked nice too from the previews. a nice concept.
It yet again was a disappointment. i don't know why but most of our directors just can't make good children movies. it however not was a mess like his few other children movies. it had a nice and limited Cartoonish type of visual effects that were there to please younger children. it is a movie for them they will like it and enjoy it very much.
There are many characters in the movie playing a role in it so many stories are there which is why i can't describe this movie in few words as this is a short review but it revolves around a wishing rock which fulfills any wish. there are some evils trying to get it and children has to save it. below average direction and screenplay but the plot might be a bit amusing for some audience.
