Just days before Christmas, an LA real-estate lawyer and his eleven-year-old son magically swap bodies. As they walk in each other's shoes, from a cutthroat law firm and the frightening days of sixth grade, the father and son rediscover what it means to be family.LOS ANGELES, night. Inside the TAYLOR residence, ROBBY (11) sits behind a dimly lit laptop screen, scrolling through Christmas toys on a shopping website. As he climbs into bed, a loud THUMP is heard. He goes to his front door and looks around, but sees nothing. As he returns inside, a mysterious package is seen on the porch. The package is labeled, "SANTA'S MYSTERY EMPORIUM." The next morning, life in the Taylor family is complete chaos. MITCH (40s) has his cell-phone glued to his ear and pays little attention to Robby. Since Robby's mother died a few years back, it's just the two of them. It's clear that they haven't exactly established a relationship or a daily routine. Robby bugs his father about getting a Christmas tree ...

Hilarious, Heartwarming, Family Holiday Fun!
22 November 2015 | by shominy-491-652355See all my reviews

We rented this movie not knowing much about it but we absolutely loved it! All of the actors are excellent and, when Dad and son swap bodies, every second is so enjoyable! We laughed and laughed! This is the type of family holiday movie that should become an annual event on TV, like "It's A Wonderful Life". The world needs more clever, fun, enjoyable, family-oriented movies! There are tender, heart-warming, tear-jerking moments, too, which proves how awesome the actors are, esp. William Baldwin and Michael Campion. (This movie is not corny at all.) We highly recommend this movie to anyone who has a sense of humor and loves fun holiday movies! Great family fun! P.S. Extra Bonus: Tom Arnold! We have seen him in so many films and thoroughly enjoy his characters! He is very talented, very funny, very underrated!
