We gave it a D

Wishful Thinking is an ultracrude, tirelessly corny comedy about a screenwriter whose dreams are magically fulfilled that features everything you’d expect from a vanity affair starring, coscripted, and directed by The Gong Show‘s Unknown Comic: obnoxious one-liners, a cameo by gnomish Billy Barty, and bank robbers who wear paper bags over their heads. And for those wondering what the formerly anonymous stand-up looks like: Imagine if Chuck Norris were a 98-pound weakling. D -Doug Brod
