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

I liked This Film
7 August 2016 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY REVIEWED ONE FILM AND GET THAT FILM A RAVE. THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 Christmas MOVIES. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I LOVE WATCHING THEM. I AM FARE ABOUT THESE FILMS.

Holidays films always seem to be about love and finding your family. This movie is of course all about love. In this film 2 men switch homes for "Christmas" and in the process come out of their shells that they had no idea that they were in. As far as Christmas films go this one is above average. It has its very tender and believable.

All the roles are almost cast to perfection. It helps that I do not remember seeing any of these actors in anything before. I was able to buy into their performances.

This is a "Romantic Drama" and it is also family safe. Kids under 12 will be bored because nothing gets blown up but blown out of proposition. If you can watch it with the one you love. If you are a guy then watch it with girlfriend. You will thank me later
