Storyline

Alex is a high school student who always feels like he is overshadowed by his little brother Stevie; he can't get the girl of his dreams; he and his two best friends, Abby and James, are outsiders at school; and he is constantly benched on his football team. Then Stevie receives a lucky coin from a strange old man, a coin which he gives to Alex, telling him to make a wish. The next day, Alex gets everything he ever wished for - Stevie is gone (in fact, he is the star of his own TV show, and his family don't even know him); Alex dates the most popular girl at school; he is one of the most popular kids himself; and he is the star of the football team. At first he enjoys his new life, only to later find out that everything that was great in his original life now is gone. Written by The Norwegian Rocker

Wonderful Family Flick
10 January 2003 | by DominqueZarinhaSee all my reviews

This movie is so awesome! I loved it! A.J. Trauth is so cute and Lalaine is so talented. I like the storyline and the ending is just great and emotional. It made me shed a tear. The story mainly revolves around Alex (A.J.) who makes a wish and then realises that it was a mistake. I even felt sorry for him at times during the movie because Abby (Lalaine) didn't first wanna talk to him after he made the wish. Spencer Breslin was also cute and I am a big fan of them all. Tim Reid makes an appearance as well, well done job, Tim. The acting was also well done. I was doing my homework when this movie premiered on Disney and it completely got my attention. I closed my books and just kept watching until it finished. One thing I noticed with this movie is that unlike many other Disney channel original movies I've seen before, the musical score is fabulous, a sort of suspense-mixed-with-a-happy-ending type of music. This movie will leave you touched and happy at the end. Rating- 9/10.
