A Christmas obsessed Jewish boy on his way to sunny Florida figures out how to get the Christmas of his dreams by trading airline tickets and places with another boy on his way to snowy Christmastown, WA.
Ira J. Finkelstein is obsessed with Christmas. He's seen every Christmas movie ever made and his dreams are filled with reindeer, sleigh rides and SNOW. The problem? Ira's Jewish - and at 11 years old, Christmas is passing him by. When Ira's hopes for a holiday vacation in Aspen are dashed, he hatches a plan to finally get the Christmas of his dreams. Flying unaccompanied to visit his grandparents in Florida, he swaps tickets with Mikey, another 11-year-old on his way to Christmastown, WA . Ira gets more than he bargained for when he experiences his first "White Christmas".Written by
Fun family movie! This is the Christmas Movie of the Decade!
There are some movies that hold up over time and we see every year during the Christmas season. This is one of those movies. Ira Finkelsteins' Christmas will join the ranks of "A Christmas Story" and National Lampoons "Christmas Vacation" and is the Christmas Movie of this decade and one you will want to each year.
Ira decided he has to have the Christmas experience and goes to great lengths to get it. He switches places with Mikey and ends up having a Christmas experience which most definitely is not what he bargained for at first, but then he realizes that Christmas is for every one, including him.
David DeLuise is hysterical as Ira's father, and Elliot Gould as Ira's grandfather almost steals the show, almost. Two dogs and a passel of kids bring the majority of laughs and fun.
