To enjoy any story I must be able to suspend my disbelief, but the screenwriter made that impossible. The entire premise of the plot is self-absorbed silliness masquerading as New Age self affirmation. Having suffered through the ridiculous "self help" book on which this movie is based, I found myself snorting in amusement at the saccharine absurdity of every scene. You can't bend reality to suit your fanciful desires just by wanting it really really really intensely. You're not God Almighty. You're not even Bruce Almighty.
Miranda is boring and one-dimensional. Bray is the white version of the "Magical Negro" trope. The kids are wooden. The plot is dull and uninspired, a rote 1990s romantic comedy stripped of romance or comedy.
This is utter garbage. Skip it.
For feel good entertainment value it does just fine. Good date movie.
Does the law of attraction work? Who knows. Decide for yourself.
Positive vs negative thinking? Cognitive Psychology 101. That is true.
I’ve wanted things pretty hard in my life and never got them because I was really feeling how much I was lacking the things I wanted even though I wanted them soooo badly. So maybe it would be better if they had focused it more not on “wanting” but more along focusing on what you believe and feel, how much you focus on feeling thankful in your heart for what you already do have. I’ve only changed things in my life when I chose to be thankful for what I already do have and focusing on any single piece of good I can find (and it was really hard at first but it got better with practice) instead of focusing on what I am lacking making me feel worse and doing nothing to solve the problem. By doing that my actions and attitude became better, other people could feel it, I could feel it, and I was more free to live the way I wanted to.
If it were focused more in that way I feel it could have made it a better movie but I still interpreted it in a way good enough for me and enjoyed it.

acting and other production aspects. I watched this late in the evening and it sent me to bed in a very
positive frame of mind. Not a bad result in today's negative-filled world! A plus was the Louisiana setting,
where my late elder sister lived and brought up a large family after marrying and moving there from the
UK directly following WW2.
Thoroughly recommend this film; it’s great!
