      Abby P The only good thing I can say is how much I laughed from the very poor acting and mundane writing. The idea was there, but nothing else was. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/19/24 Full Review Mark E A Nashville Wish is one of those "Lifetime network" movies that would do poorly amongst all the other sappy drivel on that network. Totally unoriginal storyline with cliches at every turn and songs passed off as original pieces written by the actors in this film. The unfortunate part is there are enough up-and-coming Nashville songwriters whose music should have been here in the first place. I love music films but I didn't love this. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/17/24 Full Review Kim J Simply awful. Poor dialogue, poor acting, poor predictable plot. The random outbursts of singing were simply weird and didn't fit into the framework of the film in any meaningful way. The dubbing/lip synching was poor and off putting. The acoustic context of the singing didn't attempt to match the on screen setting. The film felt like a B movie from decades ago Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/16/24 Full Review Ranny L A Nashville Wish is the romantic country film of a lifetime. Combining drama, country music, and romance, this film is engaging and enjoyable. It has strong acting, pleasant music and, for the most part, an excellent storyline. This film follows Tucker (Maxfield Camp) as he navigates the ups and downs of his musical career and his relationship throughout his senior year of high school and the following summer. Tucker has a dream relationship with his longtime crush, the cheer captain, Lisa (Kaileigh Bullard). However, this relationship begins to create more obstacles and challenges for Tucker as he is forced to decide whether the greatest love of his life is worth sacrificing the possibility of his lifelong dream, to record music in Nashville. With Lisa's parents disapproving of Tucker, their long term plan for her in the family business, and her reputation in town, she also has to make a difficult decision. The characters in A Nashville Wish are portrayed meaningfully and emotionally. Tucker and Lisa are both very dynamic characters who have deep, personal backstories. For example, we discover that some of Tucker's motives are due to a family loss a few years back. This demonstrates even further the depth of each character and how much effort went into creating these characters and bringing them to life onscreen. The acting fully mirrors the talent of the writers. Maxfield Camp and Kaileigh Bullard have amazing chemistry as a couple throughout the highs and lows of their onscreen relationship. They are so genuine; it truly seems like they're in love. Maxfield wonderfully accentuates Tucker's changes through a variety of conflicts, emotions, friendships and so much more. To match the spectacular characters and acting, the music is fantastic and fits the movie in every way. Despite not being a big country music fan myself, I thoroughly enjoyed the songs that are incorporated at every twist and turn of the plot. They help express the characters' emotions and thoughts, and also help with the setting and mood of the film. The tone of the music always matches the events occurring in the film. While the songs help move the story along, the story is a bit lacking at times. Although the plot and the concept are unique and very engaging, some of the subplots failed to engage me and ended up slowing down the movement of the story. For example, parts of the film focus on Tucker's best friend, Chewy (Fletcher Olsen). Although the character and the acting are perfect for the film, some of the storyline involving him is really unnecessary and slow. The theme of A Nashville Wish is that when difficult decisions come around in life, it's important to think long and hard about your priorities so you don't make irrational decisions. Tucker's big decision is the main focal point of the film and this message is emphasized through his character and his decisions. I give A Nashville Wish 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 18, plus adults. You can watch A Nashville Wish in theaters beginning February 2, 2024, and on video on demand beginning February 27, 2024. By Kyla C., KIDS FIRST! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/13/24 Full Review Brian B I wish I could sue Amazon for my $4.99 back. That was horrible. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/09/24 Full Review Megan L Sweet storyline but terrible acting, boring dialogue, and very cheesy at times. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/02/24 Full Review Read all reviews
