Day 16 - Genie (2023)
Jennifer Says -
When Bernard’s life is falling apart he comes across a magic jewelry box and a genie appears. He uses his wishes to try to get his life back.
Melissa McCarthy will make a fun and delightful genie. You may know McCarthy from Mike & Molly, Bridesmaids or the new live action Little Mermaid. Bernard is played by Paapa Essiedu who is also from I May Destroy, You Gangs of London and Men. Alan Cumming and Luis Guzman also appear in this fun flick.
From the trailer this looks like it will be a delightful warm hearted movie. It made my list because of the fun Melissa McCarthy and reminds me of Elf in the way that McCarthy is totally lost in today's world after being stuck in a box for centuries.
