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 beginning to look a lot like Christmas everywhere you go... That is except in the eyes of 33-year-old Eve Simon. She's spending Christmas Eve in a bar pounding back the cocktails. Outside, scenes of happy families and couples walking by arm in arm only deepen Eve's inner depression. A single, successful professional, Eve wonders what material success has brought her. The bar closes early forcing Eve to meander her way through the crowded cheerful streets back to her apartment. Rounding the final corner, Eve bumps into a homeless man, Brother James. As usual, Brother is ranting and raving, this time he's on about the lost holiday spirit. Brother pauses to look the tipsy Eve in the eye. He whispers to her, "wish upon the Christmas Star." Eve hands the man some coins and makes her way home. Alone, with no one and nowhere to go, Eve pulls out a photo album she hasn't touched in years. It's filled with pictures of her rural hometown. One photo in particular brings tears to Eve's eyes.... Written by
When the Eve picks up the newspaper at her front door to look for the advert for the bookstore, the paper clearly shows an advert for a Boxing Day Sale. Boxing Day is not celebrated in the US, so the local paper is obviously from Canada where Boxing Day is celebrated. See more »

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. Cute switch on the name - Christmas Eve "Eve's Christmas". 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!
