Despite the title, the Wishbone family are far from happy. Emma (Emily Watson), has a bookshop on the brink of bankruptcy, Frank (Nick Frost) is totally overworked and exhausted, their daughter Fay (Jessica Brown Findlay) is going through those awkward teenage years as well as failing her exams and son Max is too intelligent for his own good and consequently being bullied at school--no wonder they all fight with one another all the time! And as if this all wasn't enough already, after being dragged to a 'costume' party by Emma, where they end up being the only ones in costume, the Wishbones then get cursed by an evil witch, Baba Yaga (Catherine Tate). Suddenly their 'costumes' become a reality--Emma is a vampire, Fay is a Mummy bandaged from head-to-toe, Max is a little, hairy werewolf and Frank, well he's Frankenstein's monster of course. It's quite a shock but now the family must unite to find the witch and have her reverse the spell.

This is horrible. The story made no sense and just jumped from scene to scene. The story line involves women saying no and men not leaving them alone. Super bad.

The best part was the end.
There's a message in there somewhere family sticking together or something like that.
Not a very good film.
No harm in borrowing from the library and seeing if the children will in enjoy it.
I recommend a big bag of popcorn to help.
