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.

Being on the lookout for new Christmas movies, I stumbled on this. Billy Baldwin, Denise Richards, I thought it'll be alright.. Nooooooo,totally wrong

Father and son trade lives, and nothing but dull, poor acting and zero laughs follow. It could and should of been better, even the smallest bit, it's not exactly a new formula for a movie plot

The acting is absolutely shocking, it's laughable at times and it'll be the only laugh you'll get, well.. unless you read Shominy's review. Now that is funny!

There are many many Christmas movies out there that are much better than this. Do yourself a favour and skip.. you'll thank me
