Age Adjustment

Well, first I found it entertaining. It's what you're expecting and sometimes that's kinda nice.

I found the main character easy to relate to.

My only complaint is, is it just me or were her love interests old enough to be her father???? I couldn't get passed her main romantic interest looking so much older than her. I just kept seeing this midlife crisis guy hitting on a 20-something and that skeeved me out. It was impossible to get invested in her romance so that took away from the story for me.

Other than that though, it was a cute movie for a Saturday afternoon.

Is it spring? Everything is green.

If you are madly in love with all things climate change – green – save the planet, then you are going to love, love, love this movie. If you feel insulted by every single thing being put on film now having to rip on you, and tell you that you are horrible and hate the planet, and want to destroy the planet, and they need to fix you by preaching at you night and day until you stop killing the planet then this movie will annoy you. It is so arrogant and conceited to decide you know what average people are doing and not doing, and then assuming the worst of them. The incredibly green girl in this movie gets all her birthday wishes and is oblivious to her best friends love for her. Will she figure it out and return the feeling? Who can say? You'll have to watch and find out.

A charmless wish

Actually did sort of like the idea, it did sound quite cute and had potential to be very sweet and charming if done well. Was worried though about lack of substance, repetition and the risk of it being shallow and also if the female lead character would be as unappealing as she sounds. 'A Wish Come True' is the first 2015 Countdown to Valentine's Day Hallmark film, and stars Megan Park (who is watchable in the right roles but is up and down in this regard) and Benjamin Hollingsworth (similar).

On the whole, the 2015 Countdown to Valentine's Day block was watchable, with the rest of the films being average and above. 'All of My Heart' even being very nicely done and one of the better Hallmark films that year. 'A Wish Come True' however does not live up to its name in any way and is not a good way to start off any seasonal block. Of the 2015 Countdown to Valentine's Day films, it is easily the worst (the only one this reviewer didn't like) and one of the worst Hallmark films that year in my opinion.

It is not a complete and utter disaster. It looks nice, with the scenery being lovely.

The other redeeming quality is Hollingsworth, who gives the only halfway decent performance and is the best thing about the film. He at least looks natural, seems to realise what film he's in, has the only character that has any degree of likeability and has a down to earth amiable charm that wasn't present with the rest of the cast.

However, everything else is poor. Park does try hard (too much so really to the point that it feels like over-compensating until she gives up later on), but her character is really dull, as shallow as the plot synopsis made her sound and the film goes too far in making her self-absorbed to the point of over-bearing arrogance. The supporting cast are no better, with the father and ex boyfriend being especially obnoxiously acted. Saw no need for the latter. There is no chemistry between Park and Hollingsworth, what he saw in her the shallower and more selfish she got requires some suspension of disbelief.

In fact the chemistry between the entire cast is barely existent and only Hollingsworth's character is likeable or interesting. The others are dull or/and annoying to an over-bearing degree. The script is very stilted and sophomoric and is full of cringe worthy cheese and cavity inducing sentiment, and the story has no energy, is very predictable and emotionally is very bland in every way, wit, charm, emotion, tension are completely absent.

Concluding, very weak. 3/10.
