Storyline

Ira J. Finkelstein is obsessed with Christmas. He's seen every Christmas movie ever made and his dreams are filled with reindeer, sleigh rides and SNOW. The problem? Ira's Jewish - and at 11 years old, Christmas is passing him by. When Ira's hopes for a holiday vacation in Aspen are dashed, he hatches a plan to finally get the Christmas of his dreams. Flying unaccompanied to visit his grandparents in Florida, he swaps tickets with Mikey, another 11-year-old on his way to Christmastown, WA . Ira gets more than he bargained for when he experiences his first "White Christmas". Written by Anonymous

Good Family fun movie
2 January 2012 | by (Leavenworth, WA) – See all my reviews

This is a fun and rather off-beat movie. Instead of the usual Christmas message, it delivers more of a message of getting along, showing that kindness and love wash across all religions and beliefs. Great scenes of Christmastown USA (AKA Leavenworth, Washington) and nice use of the local folks in Leavenworth.

This film is at the same time typical and not typical of the Christmas genre. We get the fighting family, the typical clueless grandparents and the parents that just don't get it. Good guys and bad guys but in the end, a story of family, caring, and a plea for harmony.

Production values are high and it is fun to see some fresh new faces making their appearance in this film. Good for the whole family.
