There’s also a substitute teacher Mrs. Malkin (voiced by Cecily Strong), who is so traditional with her old school teaching methods that she should be dating Paul Giamatti’s character in “The Holdovers.” That is if he was attracted or interested in her. Anyway, she seems like an antagonist, especially when she still gives out demerits (which today’s kids don’t get or know), but even she has her qualities that Leo can acknowledge within her.

“Wish” can entertain kids in theatres, while “Leo” can babysit them at home. They both have their flaws, but, on their own respective terms, they work.

Rating: 3 out of 4.
