Quite a unique, entertaining ride.
31 March 2004 | by eanhalt_72See all my reviews

With an original spin on the disaster genre, this short cleverly manages to create a seemingly wonderful, magical mishap - a comedic romp in which a Genie's mistake causes everyone in the world's wishes to come true at random - while skillfully juggling such a scenario's dire consequences and exploring the complexity of subconscious human desire. Instead of offering the typical deadly tornado or approaching asteroid, `Carter's Wish' offers viewers the paradox of a blissful catastrophe, in which an inept 12-year-old boy must save us all from our very own wishes, dreams, and deepest desires, materializing before our very eyes. The Genie's charm made up for a few sagging performances, but overall, this short film was very well done.
