Storyline

Small Wells is an inconspicuous Midwest town, where nothing truly spectacular happens, so whatever gets into its local newspaper, run by Mark Jansen, is 'exciting'. The local wish well actually works, but only when one 'makes the right wish'. When Mark's motherless daughter does, it mysteriously brings along New York celebrity magazine editor Cynthia Tamerline. Somehow she becomes apprentice at the paper, which is in such poor financial state that Mark is resigned to sell out to a Chicago press syndicate magnate. Written by KGF Vissers

It was great.
10 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first reviewer was a bit wrong I think. I believe they must have meant Jason London, rather than Jason Young? The 2nd reviewer was more correct and I agree with them that the movie is not necessarily a Oscar contender, but then, many Oscar contenders are total piles of garbage. I don't remember another movie that Jason London was in with Ernest Borgnine. But it was Jason rather than his brother Jeremy who was in a movie with Ed Asner. It was called Out of the Woods and it too was a fantastic movie and a lot of fun to watch, just like Wishing Well was.

This movie was great and it was refreshing to see a movie with no violence or profanity or gratuitous sex scenes. Jason London was terrific as always. It was a pleasure to see him in this movie.
