Nothing Original Here
3 October 2016 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

Lea Thompsom stars as Sophie Kelly is a top-rated lawyer with three kids and a husband that take up all her time. All of her family and work stress comes to a chaotic halt at the shopping mall, days before Christmas, when she sees Santa and wishes for a different life. However, the grass is not always greener as a single, successful lawyer with her own firm and the most eligible bachelor vying for her attention. Freedom has its price as she realizes the sweet life is not so sweet and must race against time to find the true meaning of family and love before Christmas Day.

Now I could see why Sophie wanted a different life in this film. Her daughter are brats and her husband is unemployed. She has a boss that doesn't respect working mothers. I find hard to believe that she would want her old life back!

I highly doubt anybody would like this film.
