Storyline

Small Wells is an inconspicuous Midwest town, where nothing truly spectacular happens, so whatever gets into its local newspaper, run by Mark Jansen, is 'exciting'. The local wish well actually works, but only when one 'makes the right wish'. When Mark's motherless daughter does, it mysteriously brings along New York celebrity magazine editor Cynthia Tamerline. Somehow she becomes apprentice at the paper, which is in such poor financial state that Mark is resigned to sell out to a Chicago press syndicate magnate. Written by KGF Vissers

Wishing Well
28 July 2014 | by freestarlingsSee all my reviews

I just adored this movie, it was a feel good type of movie. Had happiness, assess, hope, and a great ending. I just love the movies that Jordan is in, she is a great actress in every movie she has been in, the movie did remind me of Ground Hog Day a little, but this one was much much better.this movie is one anyone can watch if they are having a bad day, it will fix your day making it better. I highly recommend Wishing Well to any one who hasn't seen it especially, but also even if you have seen it, it is definitely worth seeing it again and again. Another comment about Wishing Well is young children can watch it,there was no profanity in it at all. My compliments to the actors also.
