The Final Wish (2018) Movie Script

- Alright.
- Thank you so much.
You are sexy.
- Thanks.
- Shh, don't, don't talk,
just stay sexy.
I, I have your number.
Alright, be good.
Dad, please.
Please, no.
It says here you went to
the New York School of Law.
It's on Long Island.
I know where it is.
And you passed the
bar last spring.
Yes, I did.
Thank, God.
I doubt God has
anything to with it.
What have you been doing since?
Picking up cases
Um, getting some
good experience.
Staying on my feet while I
look to secure my dream job.
Look, let me be
straight with you.
You survived law school.
You passed the
bar, no small feat.
I am an extremely hard worker.
So our the grads from
Harvard, Princeton, and Yale.
Miss Sacks, I am well aware
that I don't have the
pedigree of an Ivy Leaguer,
but here's what I can
tell you about me.
You will not find
anyone who works harder,
who is more determined,
who brings a kind of
energy and passion
and determination and inspiration
that I bring to this game.
I love this work.
I breathe it, I eat
it for breakfast.
And I understand your
perception of me.
You had it as soon as
I walked in the door.
But now it's my job to
convince you otherwise
because that is what I do.
It is what I do.
It is what I'm good at.
It is what God put me on this
earth to do, ma'am, and...
I'm sorry.
I understand, it's...
Have some.
Thank you.
What the fuck?
It's not the lock.
What, you did this?
No, you did.
Oh, no, no, no.
You have to let me in.
Let me guess, you have a big
case that's about to close?
You know, yeah, actually.
And when you win it,
you're gonna pay me
the $3,000.00 for the
last two months rent?
Yeah, that's what you,
that's what you want, huh?
Come up with
$3,000.00 to pay rent
by the end of the month.
- Listen to me.
- Or your stuff's
going on the street
or to Goodwill.
You can't do this.
30 days notice, that's the law.
Oh, you really
are a shitty lawyer.
I gave you notice a month ago.
You need to come home.
Okay, good talking
with you too.
Aaron, listen to me.
- Lisa...
- Your dad died.
Come here, boy.
Well, I see you
never trained the mutt.
Relax, boy.
I'm just trying to help your mom
around the house now
that your dad's gone.
Yeah, that's fine, Yates,
just control the dog, please.
You may be a big
shot, big city lawyer.
That don't mean you can
forget where you came from.
How can I forget?
What the?
Hey, Mom.
You're here.
Yeah, of course I'm here.
So glad you could make it.
You're skinny.
I'll fix you something to eat.
Sorry about the cereal
and the no milk.
No time for shopping this week.
Lisa usually takes me but
with all that happened...
Mom, it's fine.
This is, this is
great, thank you.
I used to cook the most beautiful
dinners for your father.
He loved his food.
You know, I could
pack on a few,
so maybe we can go to
the store a little later
and you can plump
me up like dad?
That's not funny.
Look Mom, do you
wanna talk about it?
Not really.
There's no need.
You know everything
you need to know.
He's dead.
He was proud of you.
A budding young lawyer.
The last couple of weeks, he
talked about you all the time.
About how when you were
younger you would go antiquing,
and you would find
these beautiful pieces
to take and sell in the shop.
You were
also always getting
into a little bit of trouble.
I ran out of
Mom, I'm so sorry
I wasn't here.
Well, life has
a way of getting
in the way of life, doesn't it?
You still should
have called me.
I did.
You finished with your cereal?
- Right.
- But, but,
the main component
is the comfort.
- Hmm, I enjoy...
- Having the room,
the leg room in back
and you can sleep in...
And also...
Sorry, I didn't
mean to scare you.
Oh, wow, all this stuff
from my dad's shop.
I know, I'm the one who
helped your mom move it here.
Okay, I know, I probably
should have been around more.
No, we all know
how busy you are.
- Still...
- But then again,
you've always been too busy
for everything and everyone.
Mom, I'm, I'm so sorry.
Everybody's asking
about you downstairs.
They wanna see you.
Oh, I can't.
It's okay, don't worry.
I, I'll take care of it, okay?
I got it, you just, I got it.
Thank you.
the big day, huh?
How'd you know?
Effective advertising.
Hey, whatever
brings 'em in, right?
Where's your mom?
Don't ask.
Giver her some time.
So where's
your other half?
So you've heard, huh?
Nope, I didn't hear shit.
But I know you couldn't
stay single too long.
He's working.
It's Derek.
Derek, like douchebag Derek?
He's changed.
He's the sheriff now.
Prodigal son returns.
You should be happy
- for me.
- Oh, shit, what's up, Ty?
Mm, what's up, Ty?
- How's it been goin'?
- Been doin' alright.
I've gotta get going.
- Yeah.
- Aren't you gonna buy
- anything?
- Nope.
What was that about, man?
Her boyfriend and I
got a bit of history.
what kind of history?
No, nothing like that, man.
I've been sober for
three years straight.
You know how it is with all
this small town shit, man.
You're back?
Yeah, not long, you know,
I just, I just wanna help
Mom get back on her feet.
Yeah, she needs you.
She told me that you're trying
to make partner at the firm.
What do you think you're doing?
Oh, shit.
Alright man, so, you gotta,
see you gotta figure
something out,
so I'm gonna holler
at you later, alright?
- Okay.
- Alright.
What is all this?
Put that down.
- Mom.
- Put, put that down.
- Mom, mom, come here.
- Put that down.
Come here, come here.
Look, I'm just clearing
out some of the clutter.
Okay, that's all.
This is your
father's life's work.
He, he cherished each and
every one of these pieces.
I know, I know, but...
- But what?
- Come, come on, Dad's...
Don't you dare say it.
Don't you dare.
Okay, I'm sorry.
- Look, I just thought...
- No, no, no,
that's the problem is
that you don't think.
If you had thought, you wouldn't
come breezing in here
after all these years
and start selling off
your father's things.
Mom, come on, that's not fair.
- Oh.
- I'm, I'm trying to
- help here.
- Oh, now you're
trying to help.
Oh, that's very nice of you.
You would go months without
even checking in on us.
Not even a phone call.
And, oh, heaven forbid
that you would drive down
and spend a weekend with us
while your father was dying.
I will be goddamned if I'm gonna
let you sell the last
memories I have of him.
How dare you?
I want this back
in my house now.
Just the way you found it.
What are you looking at?
Look at me.
You're the clutter.
I would have tripped over
you if you had been here.
What the fuck?
Goddamn it.
3,000, that's,
that's all I want.
Hey, Jeremy.
You've been
in town, you don't call,
- Shh.
- you don't text.
Too cool for your old
best friend, I get it.
I know, I'm dick.
- Give it to me.
- You are a dick.
I'm just
fucking with ya.
It's good see ya, man.
It really is, I missed you.
We, we got a lot of
catching up to do.
Alright, so here's the thing.
Rumors of my success have
been slightly exaggerated.
Oh, what the fuck you
talking about, dude?
I currently work in
a fucking coffee shop.
Holy shit.
blows, man, I'm sorry.
Yeah, I just can't
land with a good firm
with the shitty law
school I went to.
Yeah, but fuck all of
those rich assholes, man.
You're better than them.
Just keep a stiff upper lip.
Oh, oh shit, I'm sorry, man.
That's, hey, ah, what's with
that ugly urn over there?
It's a goddamn eye sore.
It looks kind of disco-ee.
Just belonged to
my dad, I don't know.
It's kind of creepy.
You know that, right?
It gives off some spooky vibes.
I mean, shut
up, let's grab a drink.
- Yeah, let's go.
- Let's go, c'mon.
Here's your two beers.
Hey, so ah, you seen Lisa yet?
Yeah, I've
seen here a couple of times.
Couple of times, Christ.
Mm-mm, mm-mm, no,
not like that, man,
you know.
We're just friends.
Look, I don't wanna
bring anything serious up,
but Derek, Derek's
not good people.
He's really, really bad to her.
If you know what I mean.
No, what do you mean?
I mean, Lisa's been wearing
a lot of foundation lately.
He, he hits her?
That son of a bitch.
And he's a cop, so he
can get away with it.
Alright, I'm gonna take a leak.
can I help you.
Could I get a coffee to go?
Yeah, sure.
legal eagle has landed.
- Seat's taken.
- I don't see anybody.
You never did, did you, Derek?
Well, I see Lisa, actually.
I see a lot of Lisa.
And tonight, when
she's very comfortably
sitting on my mustache and
begging me to guess her weight,
I'll tell her you said hello.
Got to admit, you do
look good in uniform.
Just like your daddy.
And your, your daddy
did that, right?
Thank you, yeah,
it runs in our blood.
I just hope you didn't inherit
the get drunk and beat the
shit out of your wife gene.
You weren't worth the
effort in high school,
and you sure as shit
ain't worth it now.
Coffee to go.
Good talk.
Welcome home.
Check, please.
It's getting pretty
thick out there tonight.
Yeah, in Chicago it
gets worse than this.
Let's do a Lucky Seven, too.
How much?
Ah, 14.95.
- There you go.
- Thanks.
Better luck next time.
Alright, thanks.
Pack of smokes.
You know what?
Fuck it, let's do another one.
Alright, thanks.
You just
won $5,000.00, man.
Woo, fuck.
- Aaron, just a minute, please.
- Yeah, yeah?
I wanna apologize.
I did not mean to
blow up like that
but things have been hard,
and I miss your father.
And now I'm going
to lose you again.
Mom, come on,
you're not losing me.
I gotta go back to Chicago.
That's where I live,
that's where my life is.
Aaron, stay.
Just for a few more days.
It would mean so much to me.
Um, okay, but just a
few more days, Mom.
That's all I can do, okay?
- Alright.
- Thank you.
Come on.
Hey, Paddington, I wish
you would just shut up.
Okay, okay, okay, hold on.
What the fuck?
Okay, what, what
is the problem now?
You know goddamn well
what the problem is.
No, actually I don't.
Get out here.
Come on.
Go on, Yates.
How could you do this?
Can't you, you
think I did this?
Don't lie to me.
You always hated him.
This ain't over, boy.
Look, I'm sorry,
but I didn't do this.
Well then who did?
Fuck, I would never kill a dog.
It's insane.
I don't know what happened.
So, I ran into Derek
the other night.
He's as charming as ever.
Alright, Aaron,
he's good to me, okay?
Is that right? 'Cause
that's not what I heard.
From who?
Does it matter really?
Look, I know it's
probably none of my business
at this point, but
the Lisa I knew
never would have put
up with that shit.
Yeah, you're right.
It really is none
of your business.
I get it.
I leave, you think you're
making this big upgrade.
The high school quarterback.
Voted best looking
in the yearbook.
You probably always
wanted to be with him.
You know, but he's still a jerk.
Everybody knows it.
Are you done?
Don't, don't you think I wish
I could be more
like that sometimes?
I mean, just, just
the town brute
that everybody,
all the girls love
for some fucking reason that
I can't seem to figure out.
Insecurity and jealousy.
That's, that's
you in a nutshell.
Like, I need to get these
groceries back to your mom.
If you're gonna be a
jerk, you can just walk.
Just lookin' out.
Yeah, thanks.
I wish I was better looking.
hundred, up as well.
That's 2,924 with a consumer
confidence all suggesting
general confidence about
the state of the economy,
which comes as good news
for Wythe administration,
which has been feeling
the pressure to deliver
on its campaign promise
of 20% overall gain
in the economy in
the first 12 months.
What happened?
I'd say you're a lucky man.
It could have been much worse.
We did have to perform
a minor facial
reconstruction procedure.
- What?
- Which despite
the seriousness of the accident,
- Wait, slow...
- I think you're going
to be pleasantly surprised.
I'm sorry.
I'm so sorry.
I couldn't, I
couldn't see and...
Look, I know this
isn't your fault, okay?
It was an accident.
That's all, I
needed to hear that.
Thank you so much.
Oh, fuck.
- We'll be okay.
- It's not okay.
Derek arrested me that night.
Said I was drunk
driving but I'm sober.
They said I blew a .3.
Do you know he's the one that
got me fired from the force?
For drinking on the job,
but I owned up to that.
Fact is, he has it out for me
ever since I went out with
Lisa a couple of times.
Nothing happened.
She just needed
someone to talk to.
Look out for Derek, man.
I don't know what
the guy's capable of.
You don't think
you should slow down
there a little bit, darling?
You know, I forgave
you for what happened
under two conditions,
you never lay
another hand on me,
and you never tell anyone.
I've kept those promises.
Then how come Aaron knows?
Oh, that son of a bitch.
That's what he was talking
about the other night.
So you did talk to him?
I wasn't talking about us.
I haven't said a
single word to anyone.
I could lose my
fucking job, Lisa.
What about you?
Maybe when you
were dating Tyrone?
I was upset.
He promised not say
anything to anyone.
You trust that drunk over me?
You know what, you're
a fucking asshole.
- I'm going to bed.
- You trust
that drunk over me?
- Have a great night.
- No, yeah, yeah, why don't
you go maybe text someone
more of our fucking business.
Leaving so soon?
This is a nice surprise.
I figured you needed a lift.
Where's mom?
She's at home resting.
Yeah, how about
that sheriff of yours?
Hey, Mr. Hammond.
Before you go, let's
take off that dressing.
Alright, let's do it.
I've been sitting here all week.
Is it that bad?
Oh, my God, huh.
Oh, my God.
Mom, you home?
Mom, you can't just sit here
alone in a dark room all day.
This is not what Dad
would want for you.
He'd want you to be happy.
I feel like I don't even
know how to be happy anymore.
Mom, look at me, Mom.
Oh, my God.
You're perfect.
You're perfect.
What if I told you
I'm staying longer
than just a few days?
Maybe a lot longer.
Oh, my beautiful boy.
I wish your father
could see you.
Me too, Mom.
I just wish there was something
I could do to make
you happy again.
You okay?
Of course.
You sure 'cause, ah...
Of course.
But you're right.
I need to bury the past.
And I need to focus
on the present
and the future.
That's Bobby Darin.
Oh, my God.
Bobby D.
He's my favorite.
Listen, listen, listen to him.
Oh, listen to him.
Listen to him.
You're not listening to me!
Why don't you listen to me!
You never listen to me!
Would like to give
your mommy a twirl?
Buh, buh, buh, buh, buh.
Come on.
- Come on.
- Okay.
I don't mean to interrupt.
I just wanted to make
sure you guys were okay.
We are, we're dancing.
Go, go, go.
Have a good breakfast.
Protein, makes you live longer.
Your mom, she seems...
I know,
it's, it's weird.
It could have been like
this all the time, you know.
Look, Lisa,
I'm not saying I
deserve you, okay.
I, I don't.
But you're worth more than this.
You're worth more than Derek.
You deserve to be happy.
Look at you going down the
rabbit hole, huh, lover boy?
Things seem to really
be looking up for you.
Whatever it is you're
doing, keep doing it.
It's working.
Fuck, you know,
man, you're right.
I mean, first time
in maybe years, man,
things are finally looking up.
I tell you what
would have been nice,
if my best friend had come
to visit me in the hospital.
I hate hospitals.
Hey, um, you know,
I was just thinking.
That urn you got, I
was thinking maybe
I could buy it from you?
I could use a little
bit of luck myself.
And what would you want
that old piece of junk for?
You hear that?
It sounds like someone's
throwing a rager in the barn.
I'll be right back.
Aaron, it's a miracle.
Your father is home.
- Mom?
- Oh, ho, ho.
Where is it?
Where's that fucking thing?
Don't you talk
to me like that!
And don't you talk about
your father like that.
That wasn't Dad, that
was a fucking demon, Mom.
That was, that was a demon.
It was a monster.
What the fuck is wrong with you?
What are you doing?
That is your father.
That's Daddy.
And he's coming back.
Go to your room!
Yeah, hi, hi, Miss McKee,
I'm so sorry to bother
you so late like this.
God, it's been years.
What's going on?
listen is Jeremy around.
I really, I need
to speak with him.
Excuse me?
Is he around, does
he still live here?
I, it's kind of urgent, so
I just need to talk to him.
Is this some kind of joke?
Jeremy died a year ago.
In a car accident.
I told your mother,
I don't know.
Maybe she just, she still
busy with your dad being sick.
She just didn't have a chance
to say anything to you.
Well that's not,
it's not possible.
I was, I was with him.
I was with him today.
Right, you were
with my son today.
You know what, I don't know
what it is that you're doing,
but I need you to leave.
- And you should leave.
- Wait, I don't,
I don't understand.
I don't care.
Hey, buddy.
Who the fuck are you?
It's your best friend, Jeremy.
Jeremy's dead.
Oh, busted.
It's true.
But you know, death is,
death is just a transition.
I mean, ask your dear old dad.
My dad's fucking dead,
and I'd like him
to stay that way.
Well your wish is my command.
Who the fuck are you?
Alright, so you
really expect me
to believe that some
old urn did all of this?
I know it sounds so, it
sounds crazy but yeah, I do.
I mean, just think about
everything that's happened.
The, there was the dog.
Ah, the money.
My face, my mom.
These are all coincidences.
Okay, um, what about
me seeing my dead dad?
You did say you
were really high.
I've been hanging
out with Jeremy,
who's fucking dead, all week.
Alright, I wanna see this
crazy urn, let's go see it.
Okay, hold on.
Thank you.
I have an idea.
Colin, it's Lisa.
Aaron, why don't
you come inside
so that we can talk.
Thank you.
I'm, I'm sorry I missed
your dad's memorial.
I was stuck in London at
an antiquities auction.
He was a good man.
I'm gonna miss him.
So how can I help you?
We, um, wanted
to show you this.
Oh, my God.
We bought this just
before your dad got sick.
He never even had a
chance to unpack it.
Do you remember
where you got it from?
Yeah, from an estate sale.
From an archeologist
named Andrew Williams.
He supposedly found it in
a, um, expedition in Iraq.
Do you know what it is?
Well, it's similar
in size and shape
to many of the
artifacts that come from
the ancient Mesopotamia region.
But the inscription,
that's the crazy thing.
I mean, this
predates the original
Bedouin people of the
Middle East by millennia.
God only knows how old
this vessel really is.
Vessel, what do you,
a vessel for what?
Well according
to ancient lore,
the ancients used to use
this as part of their ritual.
To bind and to cast out demons.
Now in the Bible, they're
called unclean spirits.
In the Koran,
they're called jinn.
Now the countryside of Iraq
is littered with
these artifacts,
but nobody wants to touch 'em
for fear that they'll
be cursed themselves.
This is the 21st century.
What do you mean cursed?
Well let me tell you this.
When Williams
returned with the urn,
after a few months he, uh,
he went insane.
Dad, please.
He murdered his wife and
cut out his own tongue.
His daughter found him before
he completely bled out.
Williams survived?
Where is he now?
I have his, I have
his daughter's number.
You got lucky.
Thanks, Denise.
Her name is Lynette.
Thank you.
The universe demands balance.
For every yin,
there must be yang.
For there to be good,
there must evil.
For there to be life,
there must be death.
What the hell's going on?
I don't know.
Is your mom okay?
I can't hear you.
Aaron, no, no.
Ah, sorry about the mess.
We lost most of our
money in the trial.
I just can't bring
myself to sell it.
Lynette, I'm so sorry
about everything
you've been through.
Did you bring it?
Bring what?
The urn.
I need to see it.
You knew what it could do?
No, not at first.
My dad, he told me
some of his wishes
were coming true
but he's eccentric.
I thought it was
just a coincidence.
But one day, I heard
him make a wish.
He loved my mom.
But she worked a lot.
So he wished that
there were two of her
so he could see her more.
I don't give a shit if
you don't believe me.
Neither does the jinn.
All at once is your wishes.
Did you make a wish?
It gets stronger
with every wish.
It can take any form.
It can be anyone.
The jinn.
Lynette, I believe you.
Can you help me?
I need your help before
someone else dies.
My father, he'll
know what to do.
20 minutes.
Sir, I need to talk to you.
This man has the urn.
He's made wishes.
Please, I need you
to release his hands.
He needs to write.
How many wishes have you made?
Um, four.
It's four, right?
Paddington, money, face, mom.
Yeah, that's four.
Are you sure?
No, I think I may
have made five.
Yes, yeah, I brought
my dad back to life,
but I think, I think
I wished him away.
He says whatever you do,
you can't make a seventh wish.
What happens if I
make a seventh wish?
Sir, what happens if
I make a seventh wish?
Sir, what happens?
So what's the plan?
I think we gotta grab
my mom and go to Chicago.
Just like that?
Yeah, tonight.
If Lynette's right, you
can't run from this thing.
It's gonna follow you.
I know.
I know that.
I just need time to think.
Just promise me you
won't make anymore wishes.
It's not that simple, okay?
I'm a fuck up, I'm gonna
do it accidentally.
That man cut out his own tongue
so he wouldn't make
a seventh wish.
I know.
We gotta go.
We gotta go.
- C'mon.
- Okay.
Pick two, ah, there we go.
Okay, let's find mom and
get the fuck outta here.
The light's not working.
Okay, there's matches
in the living room.
Do you hear that?
Go home, Lisa.
We need to call the police.
what's your emergency?
Hey, buddy.
You miss me?
You ready to be rich and famous?
Fuck you.
Is that a wish?
You wanna fuck?
My son.
Please, do it for me.
You left me and your
father alone for so long.
Oh, be a good son.
Be a good son.
Make a wish.
Make things right.
I can't.
Of course you can.
This isn't real.
None of this.
You deserted me.
And you stole my husband
after I finally got him back.
You selfish little prick.
You always were.
Show me what you really are.
Show me you coward!
Aaron, I think it's
in your best interest
to stay away from Lisa.
Derek, I am really not
in the fucking mood
for this tonight.
Hey, don't turn
you back on me.
Listen, asshole...
Now why'd you make
me do that, huh?
I'm gonna have to do
that to Lisa tonight,
and it's gonna be your fault.
I wish
that you never hurt Lisa again.
you wished for it.
You're a
stubborn son of a bitch.
I need to talk
to you about Derek.
Want something to drink?
No thanks.
What happened?
I could get in a lot of
trouble for telling you this.
He's going before a
judge in the morning
to get your bail revoked.
That fucking piece of shit.
Why are you telling
me this right now?
Where is it?
What are you
doing here, Tyrone?
I'm not gonna ask you again.
Where is it?
You need to get the
fuck outta my house.
You looking for this?
Okay, you just, you just
crossed a serious line.
I crossed the line?
That's funny coming from you
because I know what you
plan on doing tomorrow.
You plan on getting the
judge to revoke my bail.
What are you
talking, are you drunk?
Tyrone, why don't
you put the gun down,
and go check yourself
into a meeting, okay?
Don't put
this shit back on me.
I know everything.
Lisa told me.
She also said she's about
to leave your sorry ass.
Oh, she said
that, she said she's
gonna leave me for Aaron,
or maybe she's gonna
leave me for you?
'Cause how I remember, she
left both of you for me.
And neither one of you
can deal with that.
You know what, fuck you.
What the hell
is wrong with you?
What evidence?
The evidence you said Derek
was gonna use
against me tomorrow.
Where is it?
Tyrone, just go home.
Go home before you get into
anymore trouble, please.
Mother fucker.
Oh, no!
What have you done?
What have you done?
He was after me and
I didn't have a choice.
And you said he had evidence
that was gonna destroy
the rest of my life.
Tyrone, I haven't
seen you in days.
Lisa, Lisa, Lisa,
I made a wish.
I made a wish, I'm so sorry.
What did you do?
I made...
Oh, fuck.
I didn't wish for this.
I just wished that he
would never hurt you again.
You need to tell
me what's going on.
It's the fucking jinns.
Okay, you two better start
- making sense right now.
- Don't touch...
Fuck you, man.
What the fuck, Tyrone?
I didn't, I'm sorry.
You said you'd stay with me.
It's all my fault.
It's all my fault.
It's all my fault.
I wish I had died that day.
That day Tyrone hit
me with his car.
the state of the economy.
This is good news for
the Wythe administration,
which has been
feeling the pressure
to deliver on its
campaign promise
of a 20% overall
gain in the economy.
I know it still works
and it's heavy, be careful.
Thank you, so much.
Enjoy it.
Whoa, last customer of the day.
We did pretty good.
- Oh.
- I'm gonna miss you.
Oh, I'm gonna miss
you, too.
But it's all good, and we are
both making fresh starts, so.
Yes, you're gonna come
visit me in Chicago, right?
It's too windy, too many people.
But you could come
visit me in Santa Fe.
I would love to.
Do you have a job lined up?
I'm gonna figure it
out when I get there.
Hmm, you're just like Aaron.
Living on the edge.
- No wonder you loved
- Yeah.
Each other.
Just like Aaron.
Ah, I have something for you.
Oh, really?
I found this in Aaron's room.
So why don't you take it.
It might bring you good luck.
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
I could use some luck.
We all could.
