Storyline

Sean, who runs a New York City advertising agency, and Owen, a small-town handyman and musician, swap residences for the holidays. Mia, who works for Sean, helps Owen get settled into his new apartment while Ryan, sent by Owen to fix a broken heater, helps Sean find the charm of living in a small town. Owen is a fish-out-of-water in the big city and tries to flirt with Halo, an aspiring model/actress/singer who lives in the apartment building. One night, after Mia has shown Owen around the town, Halo sees him entering the elevator while he's dressed in a wardrobe borrowed from Sean's closet. Thinking he's rich, Halo flirts back and sets up a date. Mia, however, warns him that she just thinks he has money because he's living in Sean's apartment and is wearing Sean's clothes. On the day of the big date, Owen realizes who he really is and what he really wants in life. Meanwhile, Sean is falling in love with the local veterinarian, who happens to be harboring a big secret - two, actually.... Written by Troy Whigham

The quote
29 November 2014 | by miztearsSee all my reviews

"You woke me up, Ryan. You made me realize that if I'm always planning for the future, I won't be present for it when it comes. You showed me how to be present." I think that's the quote gsuddy914 was looking for.

Though it's a story line that has been done before, it wasn't a bad production. I've seen other Hallmark Christmas productions that I enjoyed much more, but it was still a nice movie. The only thing that started to bug me was J.T. Hodges, who played Owen, side burns. There are some shots in the movie when he is in profile and his sideburns look as if they are colored in with a brown marker. It doesn't even come close to his hair color and looks as if there are two streaks on each side, not that close together. It kind of threw me out of the movie a bit after I noticed it.

All in all, not the best but still a nice movie for the holiday.
