Underrated Treasures Blogfest!


 Today is the Underrated Treasures Blogfest - hosted by the fabulous Alex Cavanaugh! Everyone has a favorite movie or band that no one else has ever heard about. For whatever reason, they remain undiscovered and underrated. Now is your chance to tell the world about this obscure treasure!

You can chose to share about a movie, book, band/artist, television show - or all four! :)

Underrated Movie - A Simple Wish (1997)

Starring Mara Wilson, Martin Short, and Kathleen Turner - 8 year old Anabel wants a simple wish for her dad, but in return receives a "fairy god mother" named Murray, who has never granted a wish before and can't seem to get it right. It's a hilarious twist on the classic fairy god-mother theme! Filled with funny spells, a dog turned into a woman, the villain Claudia (Kathleen Turner) desperate to steal the fairy wands, and hilarious lines from Martin Short - it's a cheesy family film, sure to bring laughs!

It has one star on Rotten Tomatoes, but it's a very funny kid's movie! I love it to this day!

  9. Sometimes movies are just fun and don't have a complicated message for the critics to give it a good rating.

  10. I have never seen this one. Kathleen Turner sure was in a huge variety of roles including a psycho mom at one point!
