In several interviews, Susan Walter explains how she originally wrote a coming of age comedy about a 25 year old woman. Because she wanted somebody tough and vibrant to play the mother, she sent the script to Sharon Stone. Sharon called her and said : "No, no, no. Don't make it a coming of age comedy about somebody in their twenties. Been there. Done that. Make it about a woman in her fifties and now you have something fresh. I'm not playing the mother...I'm playing the lead!" See more »
During the beach scene where Senna says she's going to stay for the sunset, the sun has almost set then it's back up in the sky. Then later in the scene it's even higher in the sky. See more »

All About Sharon
All I Wish is clearly a Sharon Stone production. It's Sharon all the way and that's not a bad thing at all. She produced this so you know that her heart, if not her pocketbook is into this. She plays Senna a woman of '47', is what she says in the film, and she's a bit of a bad girl still, having fun with younger men and doing doobies with her younger best friend.
In pops Tony Goldwyn and she falls for the guy, but to me it's clear that he is miscast. I was thinking that if say, Burt Reynolds were the guy there would be much more to go on. Goldwyn's character just isn't attuned to Senna.
The script is clearly not quite there in terms of drama, jump cutting here and there... and although it goes year by year, with every birthday Senna has, the thread is lost somehow. The romance a tad derivative in the end, leaving the players too much on screen time.
The film is too long. Sharon Stone is very good, and one wishes her more screen time in future.
