She wants it all and she wants it now
29 September 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This Christian movie has leading lady Karen Lesiewicz as an aspiring children's book author who has been disappointed in life. She's prayed for a lot in life and the Deity has not answered her prayers.

Well one fine day she wakes up in strange surroundings and finds that all those things she took in prayer to the Lord have come true. She's a success as a children's book author, she's rich, she married the boy she was crushing out on in middle school. What more could a girl want?

There's more than a theological reason for the old adage of be careful what you wish for, you might get it. There's an all seeing and all knowing Deity who knows what's best for us in his divine scheme of things. That would be the Christian interpretation of what we see.

One wish that comes true is that a sister who died young is now living. That's more than Lesniewicz could possibly hope for. But Ariana Lexus as her sister Sally is not all she seems either. And Brian Walsh as her school girl crush and now husband is not all that great a catch.

I don't want to get all metaphysical, but this film while sincere provides easy answers that just aren't that easy.
