Audience Reviews for 16 Wishes

Rule number one about watching a made-for-TV film is you should never expect it to be excellent. Thats exactly why they never get nominated for Oscars and you never see the film's title appear at the marquee of your local multiplex. One of the best examples of low-grade TV movies is the 2010 Disney Channel Original Movie, "16 Wishes" starring Debby Ryan.

In "16 Wishes", Debby Ryan plays a girl named Abby who is about to turn sixteen years old and dreams of making the most out of it. She has a list of sixteen wishes that she wants to become true. One of them is to be treated better. However, without any plot development whatsoever, Abby is considered an adult by her parents and peers and is forced to leave her house and purchase her own, buy a car, and get a job. As a result, Abby is treated as an adult. The rest of the film has the protagonist trying to work the problem out.

Debby Ryan is okay in this movie. I also she thinks she pretty cute. Shes not a hot actress like Ashley Greene or Olivia Wilde but she is one of those people I would take out on a date. The way she acts in this movie looks like shes trying to cope with the film's mediocrity. How were the supporting cast? Don't get me started!

The script was really gay and the film is 100% predictable. Also, the jokes are forced and unfunny. There is a running gag in the film that shows one of the protagonist's friends appearing in the most mundane places with a different occupation. One minute we'll see her as a band geek and ten minutes later she's a crossing guard. Its funny the first two times and then it gets tiring. See what I mean by these jokes?

The reason why I sat down to watch this perplexes me. This is one of those type of movies you find on TV when nothing else is on but then regret watching it. I do regret watching this. This movie is not worth laying your eyes on. It just really isn't worth it. I feel like the movie critic ducks who watch "Meet the Parents" in that Seth Macfarlane short.

Not even the word, "poor", can describe the film.

See that Seth Macfarlane short I mentioned here:
