Terrific Christmas fantasy, 15 December 2011
Author: Kelly O'Toole from Austin, TX

12 WISHES OF Christmas is about a woman (Elisa Donovan) who calls a life coach for help after she's fired by her boss (Gabrielle Carteris). The life coach helps her by granting her 12 wishes to help fix her life. Predictably, she wastes the wishes on things like winning the lottery, and a new car. She also selfishly wishes for her boss to be fired and her annoying neighbor (Michael Gross) to get kicked out. The twist is, once she's out of wishes, she has to go back and fix her mistakes without the help of magic.

I thought this was a great Capra-esque fable with a strong message and great cast. It's a lot deeper than I expected and takes some unpredictable turns along the way. There's also a touching love story with a surprise outcome I won't ruin, but you won't see it coming. Fun script, great direction, I highly recommend this movie!
