A pirate radio station is granting callers their hearts' desires. But as some teenagers find out, be careful what you wish for.

One review here says this is a great spoof that captures your interest from the start.

Not so much. I don't think this is a parody at all and I found it rather tedious, hard to follow in parts and dull.

The setup takes forever and does nothing to further the plot.

You're literally 40 minutes into the movie before she makes her wish and by then you have a wish of your own -- that the movie would end.

By the time the action starts you have 20 minutes remaining! So you basically sit through an hour plus of nothing for the payoff and the payoff sucks.
