Johnny Mysto: Boy Wizard is a fantasy adventure movie from 1997 directed by Jeff Burr. The movie stars Lane Toran as Johnny Mysto, a young boy who dreams of becoming a wizard. His life changes when he buys a magic wand from an old magician's shop and discovers that he has the ability to perform real magic. The movie starts with Johnny, a typical teenage boy, struggling to fit in at school. He has a crush on a girl named Tina (played by Amber Tamblyn), but she barely notices him. Instead, she is interested in a bully named Brad (played by Michael Galeota), who torments Johnny at school. One day, Johnny walks into an old magician's shop and meets the owner, a mysterious old man named Zarro (played by Russ Tamblyn). Zarro sells Johnny a magic wand, which he claims can grant wishes.

Johnny is excited to try out the wand and practices his magic at home. He soon discovers that the wand can actually make his wishes come true. For example, he wishes for Brad to be nice to him, and suddenly, Brad becomes his best friend. Johnny is ecstatic with his newfound power and decides to use it to win Tina's heart.

However, Johnny learns the hard way that magic always comes with a price. Each wish he makes with the wand puts him in danger and causes unintended consequences. For example, when he wishes for his parents to be happy, they become overly affectionate towards each other and embarrass him in public. When he wishes for Tina to fall in love with him, she becomes obsessed and possessive.

As the movie progresses, Johnny becomes more and more desperate to control his magic and its consequences. He seeks out Zarro for help and learns that the wand is cursed. The only way to break the curse is to face his fears and use his magic to save someone's life.

The movie is filled with magical and fantastical elements that make it a fun watch for children and adults alike. The special effects are not the most advanced, but they add to the movie's charming and quirky atmosphere. The acting is decent, with Lane Toran delivering a likable and relatable performance as Johnny Mysto. Russ Tamblyn also stands out as the enigmatic and wise Zarro.

Overall, Johnny Mysto: Boy Wizard is an enjoyable and lighthearted adventure movie that will appeal to anyone who loves magic and fantasy. It is not the most groundbreaking or memorable movie of its kind, but it is a fun and entertaining escape from reality.

Johnny Mysto: Boy Wizard is a 1997 kids & family movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 31 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.6.
