Storyline

Melody, high powered corporate workaholic for a retail conglomerate, is happy to spend the holidays jet-setting with her girlfriends. However, she's in for an unpleasant surprise when her boss sends her to her sleepy hometown to convince the reluctant townspeople to allow them to build a new discount store. Now, forced to reconnect with her family and her childhood sweetheart Carter, her task is not so simple, as all are vehemently opposed to everything Melody's company stands for. Desperate to get out of town and back to her real life, Melody takes a spill and wakes up in an alternate universe where she never left home and is married to Carter! Once determined to leave her small town life behind, Melody must make sense of her new life and decide if you truly can go home again. Written by ABC

A Fun Extended "What If" Romantic Comedy
15 August 2014 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

A twist in the traditional Christmas themed romantic comedy, set during Thanksgiving with a high powered corporate woman charged with making sure a big box store gets approved by the City Council in her hometown. This enhanced version of It's a Wonderful Life, but in a more lighted, fluffy way creates a wonderful dreamlike "what if" scenario that has an extended ending, like an extra present. More family oriented for the holidays than Jennifer Love Hewitt's more comedy-drama of "If Only" (2004) alternative life scenario or not quite as brilliant as "Sliding Doors" (1998) or Slip Stream (2007) surrealistic enterprise with Anthony Hopkins, Holidaze offers up an extended entertaining experience enjoyable for the whole family.
