Romp about trading places has stereotypes, sensuality.

Heigl has the makings of a "Star"

March 11, 2005

Harmless enough, but so condescendingly saccharine, you might gag on it.

Audience Reviews for Wish Upon a Star

This is a silly movie that would have gotten a much higher rating if I were a teenage girl upon viewing it.

Heather Metzger

I guess people switching bodies happened way before "Freaky Friday" and "It's a Boy/Girl Thing". Anyway, I liked it. Quite entertaining and funny. It has its charm.

I love this movie. I watched it all the time when I was growing up. I wish I could find it somewhere so I could watch it again.
