A romantically hapless young man (Scott) has his life changed when he finds the proverbial genie-in-a-bottle, in this case a very comely lass (Jeannie). With Jeannie granting wishes left and right, Scott soon has a fine house, a wonderful car, and a chance to impress the girl of his dreams. But is this the way to true happiness?

Not bad
25 September 2004 | by DudleytownSee all my reviews

Not too bad of a film. The premise of a genie that grants you unlimited wishes is a tough topic, considering there are things like paradoxes and such, but if you over look that, and just accept the film as a fun "beach" movie, you won't be disappointed. The Genie is a very likable character, and casted very well. The lead, Dean Cameron, is a complete loser, but his innocence is what makes him so likable. It's a cute love story, with unexpected amounts of nudity, and a happy ending... what more would you want from a film starring Dean Cameron?
