Wish Upon is directed by John R. Leonetti and stars Joey King, Ki Hong Lee, Sydney Park, Elisabeth Rohm, and Ryan Phillippe. The plot of the movie is a teenage girl discovers a box that carries magic powers and a deadly price for using them.    This movie is so terrible it's funny. The main character Clare is one of the most foolish, selfish and awful main characters I have seen all year. I have seen Joey King in enough stuff to know that she is a talented actress. The problems with Clare have nothing to do with her and all to do with the way the character is written. She makes the worst decisions possible throughout the entire movie.  I'll give her the first wish because you say things in the heat of the moment and at that point, she would have no reason to believe the box really works.  After that, you really would have to be the biggest moron on the planet to not realize that the music box is working. At one point in the movie, she gets information about the box from another character and she ignores it and keeps on wishing for stupid things. Eventually, it gets to a point where you hope that she gets what's coming to her.    Once you realize that this movie is not going to be scary and you realize how stupid the main character is that is where the unintentional fun of Wish Upon comes in. I started to embrace the stupid dialogue and the moronic main character. Ever time Clare said or did something ridiculous I laughed.  Wish Upon is a bad movie, but if you are with a group of friends and you want to rip apart and truly awful movie than I would recommend it.  0 out of 5 stars for Wish Upon. I hope you enjoyed my review.
