Storyline

The New York Cuban Moreno family and friends despair if matchmaking will ever get willful adult daughter Angela to date and wed a suitable man. After the delivery of a magic snowball by new neighbor Eddie, the latest arranged date, it transports her in dreams to an alternate reality, where she dwells with naive country people in permanent Christmas mood. Her admirer there, Doug, and later his admirer Marie, get transferred to our world when the globe is damaged in a fall during Christmastide. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

Eddie introduced Angela to his drink recipes, resulting in the following scene with her highly intoxicated, even relying on his support to be able to stand up. They are then about to kiss at the door to her apartment when her sister opens the door. In subsequent scenes, there is no hint of her earlier intoxication to any degree never mind the levels it had been at. See more »

Quotes

Angela: Mmmm... it's like a Christmas tree, on fire.
Eddie: Egg nog and cinnamon schnapps, I'd figure it'd be right up your alley.
Angela: Feeling merrier already.
Eddie: You like Christmas.
Angela: Haha, love it.
Eddie: To me, it's just stress. Looking for the perfect tree, perfect presents. Trying for some ideal you can never reach.
Angela: There is a perfect Christmas. I've seen it.
Eddie: I hope not.
Angela: Why?
Eddie: Cause then what? End of the road, no more struggle.

A wonderful Christmas movie for all ages
4 January 2012 | by Catharina_SwedenSee all my reviews

When I read what this movie was about, it sounded silly, absurd and dishonest. Which of course it is, too! But then when I watched it, I was still seduced by it. Because it recaptured that Christmas magic that one could feel when one was a child, and still able to see a whole world in a snow-globe or a Christmas tree ball made of glass... A wonderful movie to help you get into the Christmas spirit! Also, the fact that Angela's real life is taking place in a big city in present times, and in a slightly dysfunctional modern family, makes it easier to identify with her.

I loved the innocent and healthy snow-globe world..! There were so many perfect images of Christmas in there, that I had to stop the movie several times just to watch them closely! I got some ideas for Christmas decoration next year as well! :-) ...but of course I also understood the message about stop looking for the perfect things that do not exist, and that you probably would get bored with quickly even if you could find them. And to be happy with what you have got in reality instead. Life does not have to be perfect to be wonderful! This is a wonderful Christmas movie to watch with your family. Both children, teenagers and adults will find something to love in it!
