"12 Wishes of Christmas" is definitely a movie for the ladies. This is as sugar-coated as it comes. This romantic Christmas comedy is molded directly from the foundry that spews out these romantic comedies by the dozens. It has everything that you could want in a movie of this type.
The story is about Laura Lindsey (played by Elisa Donovan) whose life comes crashing down in a series of events, and she is given a second chance at a mystical life coach which grants her 12 wishes. But with these wishes comes responsibility. Will Laura be able to rise to the occasion and make the changes in her life and in the lives of those around her?
"12 Wishes of Christmas" does prove entertaining enough the first time you watch it, despite it being so sugar-coated that your teeth literally hurt while you watch the movie. However, I will say that this is not a movie that I will be watching again. Perhaps because I am not a woman, so I am not a sucker for these particular types of movies.
It was actually quite nice to see Michael Gross in this movie, despite him not having that big a role. He actually did bring something nice to the movie, and he was one of the more interesting of actors to behold in the movie. Of other notable faces in the movie, you have Gabrielle Carteris and Fred Willard.
If you enjoy sugar-coated seasonal comedies with a pinch of romance, then you will most definitely enjoy "12 Wishes of Christmas".
