"The choice is yours," says the man. "You can have the money or the pearly gates. That's up to you. All we want is your body for a few weeks." For one second Eddie hesitates ...

Stands out...
2 December 2018 | by Kendall_MillerSee all my reviews

Of all the low-budget, mass-produced Christmas specials out there this one stands out. The Christmas Switch feels like like an original story. The acting is mediocre at best, but the story is actually watchable. This movie has a good message and good characters for a Christmas special. I would recommend this if you're looking for decent Christmas specials.
