      ashley h Wishful Thinking is a disappointing film. It is about a story told from three angles. Drew Barrymore and Jennifer Beals give terrible performances. The script is badly written and confusing. Adam Park did a horrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I would probably give it two stars if it wasn't for Drew Barrymore & John Stewart. Off-beat. Without the suspense of learning what had happened over the film's 3 perspectives, the story itself wasn't very riveting. Not great, but not terrible. (11-5-10) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member I would probably give it two stars if it wasn't for Drew Barrymore & John Stewart. Off-beat.

(11-5-10) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Ordinary love triangle story with an attempt to spice it up by using different perspectives. It still isn't presented that well. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member A very, very, very boring love triangle. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member jennifer and drew are great in this, unfortunately the lead male character is just not attractive enough. perhaps this makes his character susceptable to what is to come, but it also makes the movie drag as if you really dont care what happens to him. he comes across as a lost puppy through the whole film... if he had more personality and was more physically attractive, he would have a chance of carrying this film into a success. the other actors did great and their characters were more defined and interesting. i found myself drawn into the film as other perspectives were explored, in fact the people you expect to like become less likable, and the people you expect not to like become more likable, in this way the depth of the movie develops a bit more of a real dynamic. in the end, i liked it.
