Living in different environments and without actually knowing each other, the nine-year-old boys Tom and Thomas have always been aware of the other's existence. At the time they finally meet Tom is on the run from some child smugglers who operate their business from his boy's home. The smugglers mistake Thomas for Tom and attempt to get him out of the country on a plane. Tom, who has no intention of losing his brother, finds himself in the middle of a smuggling operation and it takes all his efforts to reunite with his brother and bring the family together.

Trivia

In the Mirror Maze (at around 35 mins) and after, viewers should realize that although Tom and Thomas are wearing identical white corduroy jackets with hooded orange zippered liners, Thomas' liner is zipped up so his front is orange while Tom's liner is unzipped, so his front is black. A more subtle difference is that Thomas' hair is parted on his left while Tom's hair is parted in the middle. Viewers may confuse them before the Mirror Maze when, after Thomas and his father enter the Space Museum with tickets, Tom sneaks in (at around 34 mins) by calling out "Mom, wait for me", pretending she is ahead of him -- staff thinking he were Thomas would aid his ruse.

Tom & Thomas is an standard Christmas-movie (note the release in the Netherlands is almost two months after Christmas). But is very enjoyable because the good cast and direction from Esmé Lammers (long live the queen). if you're looking for a family-movie with a enjoyable story for everyone go see it movie!
