      Wishing Well is a 2009 TV movie that aired on the Hallmark Channel. It fits the mode of family film, but it’s a very old plot, one that has been re-used to death over the past few years.

      Here’s the plot. Big city girl gets sent to small town nowhere to write a story about a wishing well. Girl

      meets boy. Stuff happens. Girl goes back to big city and laments her fate. Small town USA turns out to be Dream Town USA.

      Recognize it? It’s been the concept behind so many made for TV movies lately. I’m not really against it, but this one was horribly produced and acted.

      There were scenes that were so forced between Girl and Boy. Okay, Girl is Jordan Ladd and Boy is Jason London. I expected more from London, and he was actually a ton better than Ladd, but their scenes were not enticing. It was like being at the dentist with some of their back and forth.

      The story doesn’t even make sense. Girl makes her wish ...

      in the well, gets on a plane, but wakes up with a new life in Small town. Then just as suddenly, she gets her life back but decides life is really in Small town. When she gets there, it’s like okay, come on in. It just didn’t make sense. Her ‘dream’ had certain things happen, and I
      guess they did, but it’s just over the top of what is believable, even for this kind of show.

      I was highly disappointed. This isn’t standard fare, it’s sub-par mush. The only good moment was Ernest Borgnine’s small role. He’s aging, and you can tell, but Borgnine delivers the goods. It’s just too bad no one else did.
