But she doesn’t just make a wish when she blows out the candle, she writes the
wishes down. On her 25th birthday, she wishes for the perfect guy to
walk into her life, not knowing that her best friend – and now lawyer, Dave (Ben Hollingsworth)
has loved her without ever saying a word. Instead he’s been the guy she relies on. Nearly five years later and Lindsay
is not in the job she’d have wanted, but she has got the perfect guy. Or so she
thought. Her 30th birthday is celebrated again with no boyfriend.
Instead something else happens and all of her wishes begin coming true starting
with a dream promotion…
and sweet romantic comedies, A Wish Come
True is another fabulous film to curl up and watch on a Saturday evening
in. I liked a multitude of things about it. One of which is that it’s relatively
grounded in reality. Sure, its heroine has some dreams, but they aren’t necessarily
unrealistic. What do get marginally hooky are the methods by which Lindsay’s
dreams are achieved – some of which do stretch the bounds of believability.
That being said, this is all a part of the film’s charm, which is of course,
too cute to rag overmuch on.
Another plus was seeing Ben (Lucky in Love) in something again.
I’ve really liked him in the leading man roles he’s played, and Dave is no
different, and Megan’s Lindsay is a fun heroine. Sprinkled with some pixie dust and
elements of the Cinderella story, A Wish
Come True is pure sunshine. It does take a quirky detour now and again
(crazy side character), but that doesn’t undermine from the fabulous. Plus, the
ending is far more complete than most
of its peers, that alone proves wishes do come true.
