Not even Short can make A Simple Wish memorable, often looking as though he's merely surviving the work, stripped of his killer instinct.

The ensuing comic clash between inept Murray and smarmy Claudia is almost as funny as 'Long Day's Journey Into Night,' and every bit as magical.

Above average kids movie. The girl has real brains, which is great for kids to see.
