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.

An "ideal" fantasy
6 December 2010 | by HallmarkMovieBuffSee all my reviews

How often have you wished for a do-over, to go back and "correct" decisions you've made in the past, to improve your current lot in life, or to pursue that path not taken? In "Eve's Christmas," Eve Simon (Elisa Donovan), wishes upon a star and gets that very chance. Having taken a glamorous job in NYC the first time around, eight years later, her married boss and lover reneges on their planned Christmas trip to spend time with his wife and children.

Despondent at how her life has progressed, Eve is blessed by her guardian angel, who transports her back to the week before the wedding she canceled to take the big city job, so she can revisit her earlier decision.

Older and wiser the second time around, Eve seeks the advice of her understanding mother (Cheryl Ladd), but still seems indecisive until the last minute.

The ever-cute Erin Karpluk plays Eve's best friend here, but she also got the lead in her own Christmas movie in last year's "Mrs. Miracle." (Recommended.)
