Storyline

Now in young adulthood, Gina and Seth have been pen pals for thirteen years. They have graduated from handwritten letters when they started corresponding to email, but with both being insecure with who they are as people have decided not to exchange telephone numbers. Even when they have discussed exchanging photographs of the other, they have sent photos of their more outgoing best friends, Ellen and Matt, passing them off as themselves without telling either Ellen or Matt. Each has been there for the other through every major event that has happened in their lives, and as such, they have both fallen for the other without either admitting it to themselves or having the nerve to tell the other. Living in different cities - Boston and Denver - they have never even seriously considered meeting in person, until now. Seth, a junior executive at a toy company, is heading to Boston just before Christmas to attend a toy convention, which Gina, a struggling reporter stuck in "obituary" ... Written by Huggo

Well
22 November 2017 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 400 (C H R I S T M A S ) MOVIES AND SPECIALS.

BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE NO AGENDA! I AM HONEST! I REVIEW MOVIES & SPECIALS AS A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT I HAVE SEEN!

Lifelong pen pals (Marla Sokoloff, Patrick J. Adams) send their best friends to pose as them when the opportunity arises for a face-to- face meeting.

Now Marla has done many Christmas films. This one is her best. She is very likable in this film and you are pulling for her. The Christmas Setting makes this movie almost like a Fairy Tale.

Very watchable and enjoyable. The film never lags and the pace is just right. Watch it under the blanket with a nice cup of Jot Chocolate
