Storyline

Meet the Murphys, a family with never ending bad luck. "Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong," it's Murphy's law! Over a century ago a witch put a magical curse on their great-great grandfather and the whole family has been jinxed for generations! After Meg Murphy (played by Big Time Rush's Ciara Bravo) and her family's house is destroyed in yet another freak accident, the family moves into their grandfather's house in Harvest Hills. In a not-so-strange case of bad luck, Meg's nemesis Ivy is also spending the summer in town. But things start to look up, kind of, when Meg meets a local boy named Brett and he casts another spell on her, a love spell that is! With help from her brother Charlie, Meg more determined than ever, must break the hex on her catastrophically cursed family! Watch this doomed teen try for a normal existence in a world full of hijinks! Written by Anonymous

Do you like Ciara Bravo?
27 December 2014 | by chubbydaveSee all my reviews

Whether you like this movie depends solely on whether or not you like Ciara Bravo.

First, the movie; it's a silly movie about a family (appropriately named Murphy - as in Murphy's Law everything that can go wrong will) who are cursed with bad luck. The family has managed to live with it. The father has a career as an appliance tester - he can easily cause any appliance to malfunction. The little brother is known for his devastating skateboard wipeouts and is semi- famous from youtube videos. But Ciara's character hasn't made peace with the curse, and she is determined to somehow overturn the curse. Needless to say, her attempts to overturn the curse result in a series of comical mishaps.

She also has a love interest in the story which to me is kind of creepy because she's so young.

But the main character is Ciara Bravo, and this movie depends on her. To me, she's very likable. In fact, I'm hoping she gets a few more major roles before she turns 20 and turns into the next LIndsay or Amanda.
