I'm not going to be that rough on this movie unlike some others, it's OK!
17 October 2017 | by huggibearSee all my reviews

I loved the fact that Tessa/Bella was a woman mechanic and a pretty one too! I wish I had gotten some 'grease' education as well because then I might be able to troubleshoot and fix lots of my family's deadbeat cars. Maybe it's not too late to learn, but then I wonder how my nails would ever survive their femininity. I did help change the breaks on my very first car, but that was years ago and I doubt I could do it again all by myself. A woman can imagine though! So, back to the movie, I thought it was good. I would watch it again because the ending was a bit distracted when my family came home. It's a plain, cute, family film with not a lot of depth to it. I thought it was a Disney made-for-TV movie, but I looked and it was Warner Brothers and I watched it on the Freeform channel. I'd rather watch this than a low-budget B-rated movie that just makes no sense why it was put on film. At least it's a fantasy. Solid 6 star rating from me!
