Hi. Suppose we write an advertising or informative text about some movie/video game/book, etc. And we need to conclude it with a concise wish in the form of "we wish you to enjoy the movie" + "have a nice day/enjoy yourself/best wishes/have a good time/be in a good mood, etc." It seems that all the variants will look awkward regardless of omitting "we wish you" or not. Could you suggest some formulas capable to express these wishes in one sentence? Thanks.

We hope you enjoy the movie.

Here are the likely grammar structures, but neither of them seems to suit your needs.

"We wish you to enjoy the movie" This sounds like We want you to enjoy the movie.That's not really suitable.

"We wish you enjoyment of the movie" This sounds very awkward.

I suggest you just finish with a simple exhortation/imperative.

eg Enjoy this movie!

eg Have a good time at this movie!

OK, thanks. But the problem is how to combine this wish with a general wish, such as used when everyday conversations. "We hope you..." would be certainly inaproppriate in such a case, so it remains only to say like:

1. Enjoy the movie and have a good time.

2. Enjoy the movie and have a nice day.

And I see no way to combine "enjoy the movie" and "best wishes" or "enjoy yourself" in one sentence.

How about this?

eg Enjoy the movie, with our best wishes!

Idk, since I am not a native speaker — it is me who would ask this question*. So, I hope the abovementioned examples are OK:

1. Enjoy the movie and have a good time.

2. Enjoy the movie and have a nice day.

3. Enjoy the movie, with our best wishes!

Some more suggestions?


*Thus, I have already found out that "We wish you a good mood" is not used in English.

I asked you the question because I was not clear about what you were trying to say. I'm still not clear.

Natural English is just to say eg Enjoy the movie!

1. Enjoy the movie and have a good time. This sounds like you are saying the same kind of thing twice.

If you are enjoying the movie, you are having a good time.

2. Enjoy the movie and have a nice day. My comment is basically the same as for #1.

3. Enjoy the movie, with our best wishes! This sounds like the speaker is paying for your movie ticket as a gift.


*Thus, I have already found out that "We wish you a good mood" is not used in English. True.

The general aim is to combine "enjoy the movie" with a common parting phrase used in everyday conversations (but with a wish) such as "all the best", "have a nice day", "have a good time", "enjoy yourself", etc. It is clear that not all options are suitable, but perhaps at least some are.
