Richie Richs Christmas Wish > Customer Review #1:

A modern take on “Its a Wonderfull Life”…

Though not anywhere near as good or as affective. The story is a little different, but much the same. Richie Rich wishes that he was never born and it comes true, not by an angel though, but by a wish machine. And then realizes how wonderfull life reall is… Also things that make this movie not so good is the fact that it has cheezy dialogue(even for a G rating, they could have got better dialogue),bad effects,and a mediocre take on “Its a Wonderfull Life” chances are children will like this playfull romp. If they cant sit through and appreciate “Its a wonderfull Life” maybe theyll appreciate this, even if you cant.

God Bless ~Amy

Dont Make Time For This.

In December, I am a pushover for movies that have something to do with Christmas. I am sad to say that this was almost a complete waste of time. The plot is to old, and the story is quite thin. The ending does not even carry much weight. The only thing that saves this from being a complete disaster is that there are some comical moments, as well as some interesting interaction amongst the characters. Dont cut into your Christmas Preperation time for this one.

Richie Richs Christmas Wish > Customer Review #3:

Not As Good As The Last, but good

The last Richie Rich topped this one, but this one is pretty good. David Gallagher was probably as good as a replacement you could have gotten for Macullay Culkin. This movie has great actors that added major points like David, Jake Richardson and Michelle Tractenberg. Its a good kids holiday movie.
