Storyline

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. She has not been home to Eastborough, Oregon since she left eight years ago, and rarely speaks to her loving and supportive family there. When Neil tells Eve that he will be spending Christmas with his wife and kids instead of her as was originally planned leaving her alone for Christmas, Eve reflects on her life, most specifically the decision she made eight years ago not to marry her then fiancé and love, Scott Gustafson, who she has not seen or heard of since, but rather accept the internship with Bernstein & Barlow that began the day after Christmas. Christmas was to be the day of her wedding. That decision not to get married was in ... Written by Huggo

interesting "what if" story
16 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

Does God send an angel when we wish on a star, like some fairy godmother or genie in a bottle? A little silly notion of prayer, but yes, sometimes He bargains with us and gives us second chances. Anyway, with some strange theological musings, this "what if" journey makes for some amusing mind bending. Typical reflective, feel-good, Christmas fare... better than some that try time-travel (and warps), this one takes the viewer to muse about how life's choices affect our trajectories.

The lead, Elisa Donovan, was not great in the role of a hard-core business professional, but as her alternate character, the giggly bride, she fit better. She seemed to be smiling almost constantly rather than depicting a multi-faceted character - could have brought more depth. Cheryl Ladd, James Kirk and some of the others were good.

While the film is supposed to laud the choices of home and family over career at all cost, sort of promoting the American Dream (you can have it ALL if you aren't greedy for gain), it could also be depressing for those who find themselves alone for Christmas, for whatever reason - 'what went wrong and why can't I undo it like Eve could?' Potentially disastrous "what if" story for some -- not exactly as universally positive a message as "It's a Wonderful Life," but thought-provoking, cleverly written screen story.
