BEWARE OF FALSE REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW TO THEIR NAME. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE FILM. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THE FILM . NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 HOLIDAY FILMS. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM HONEST!

Here is a cute little film I watched last night. the film is called "Switchmas" . It is a throwback to old Disney Movies of the 1960's and 1970's. There is a few things in this film that makes be cringe. What I like most about this film was how they showed "Christmas" through the eyes of a child. This film is very family safe. Sullen teens won't like this. I think if you are a parent to a young child it will be a wonderful viewing experience.

"Switchmas" is an American musical comedy film directed by Sue Corcoran. It tells the story of a Christmas obsessed Jewish boy on his way to sunny Florida who figures out how to get the Christmas of his dreams by trading airline tickets and places with another boy on his way to snowy Christmas-Town, WA. This film also features CGI scenes based on Ira's Christmas dreams.
