Good watch, could watch again, and can recommend. This is a weird little gem of a watch. Not only is it a goofy and fun family movie, but it has a fun "story in a story" style of structure to it. While the main story is Ellinoore trying to help Mackenzie, it is literally a support story to Mackenzie's story, so the B story is the actual main story. It's not that important, just an amusing note. The movie is filled with fun, feel-good moments. While it's not going to be an award winning movie, I think it's almost a guaranteed good movie for almost anyone.
Not good. I don't hate it though, it's harmless and means well. 'Godmothered' is an extremely forgettable 2020 flick from Disney. Jillian Bell leads, with Isla Fisher supporting. I actually think it would've worked best the other way around, with Fisher portraying Eleanor and Bell playing Mackenzie. I like Bell from 'Workaholics', but she isn't lead worthy enough in my opinion; at least based on this. Jane Curtin also appears. The plot is very formulaic and lacks originality, especially with a few cringey, "how do you do fellow kids"-esque jokes. It's a very basic fish-out-of-water schtick for the majority. The ending is sickly, even if it has its heart fully in the right place.
