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

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 »

Delightful Christmas movie
18 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

I know this movie is akin to Family Man, Back to the Future, and It's a Wonderful Life, etc. but that does not make it any less enjoyable. (I preferred the ending to that of Family Man.)

Eve Stevens is a lonely career woman, spending Christmas Eve in a bar and watching families and couples walking by. She begins to wonder what success has really brought her. Leaving the bar, Eve bumps into Brother James who whispers, "wish upon the Christmas Star." Once she returns home, Eve pulls out her old photo album filled with pictures of her hometown. The photo of herself at 21 with her then-fiancée, Scott, makes her feel even more lonely. Stepping outside, she sees the Christmas Star... makes a wish and goes to bed. What follows next is Eve's second chance, and once she comes to terms with the reality that this is not just a dream, she is faced with making the same decision all over again... this time knowing what the results will be.

Not being a movie critic, I feel free to enjoy the movie for the story and not get wrapped up in performances and plots. I thought it was a very enjoyable, entertaining movie. I'm glad to see this has come out on DVD so I don't have to wait for it to come around during the holiday season, I will enjoy watching it again.
