User Reviews

For Middle School & Lower
1 July 2020 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

Usual middle school & younger age appropriate hooks - wishes, magic, trouble ("There's consequences." - actually they're pretty tame.); brief romantic hook; feel good ending. Stereotyping of dysfunctional divorced families; kids want parents together the way they were. But, remaining male & female parent of each family have secretly developed a mutual relationship that is brought to light when both groups surprisingly show up at the same vacation spot; predictably, offspring of each don't get along with counterparts, but that'll change. Never found any of the characters likable or interesting; made even more tiresome with not-demanding acting. Bringing them all together was the usual nasty foil character as counterpoint. Oh, and the the wish granter (A well known actor voicing which sounded weird.).
