Richie Rich's Christmas Wish

U Certificate


Our Score
Denied the talents of Macaulay Culkin, this festive sequel went straight to video. Yet David Gallagher copes admirably as the world's richest kid, transported to a parallel universe after his wish that he'd never been born is granted by an eccentric professor's latest invention. Shades of It's a Wonderful Life and Back to the Future colour the action. But generally the film's in a lower league - despite the best efforts of Martin Mull and Leslie Ann Warren, as the parents who blame Richie for ruining Christmas, and of Eugene Levy as the bumbling boffin whom Richie relies on to reverse the Wishing Machine.


The world's wealthiest youngster rashly blurts out a wish that he had never been born - and when it is granted, he sees how different the world would have been. Festive comedy sequel inspired by It's a Wonderful Life, starring David Gallagher, Eugene Levy, Martin Mull, Lesley Ann Warren, Keene Curtis and Michelle Trachtenberg.
