A wealthy and successful career woman gets a second chance in life when a magical wish transports her back in time eight years to when she walked away from her fiance to lead a business life in New York.
It's Christmas Eve, 2004. Eve Simon is a wealthy and successful advertising executive with Bernstein & Barlow on Madison Avenue, but her personal life is less than satisfying. Beyond her assistant Mandy who has been her best friend since grammar school, her married boss and lover, Neil Barlow, is the only other significant person in her personal life.

Loving Somewhere In Time movie, romantic holiday movies and time travel, I wanted to see this one. This was not as good as Somewhere In Time with Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeve but it was definitely delightful. This movie is worth seeing.

Those of us women who wonder what life could have been like if we made a different choice, well, hang on to your seat - this will help you get through those regrets. You will cry, laugh, and it makes you think, for sure. Great performance by Cheryl Ladd. She was elegant as usual. I bought the DVD to add to our Christmas movies. Very good movie for even the young... no offensive language, no filth - just good, clean fun!
