Widowed Connie Forrester, mother to an adolescent son, TJ, and divorced Will DiNova are both second generation owner/operators of their respective family business. Those businesses just happen to be both toy stores - Forrester Toys and DiNova Toys, respectively - and both located in New Britain, Connecticut, one block away from each other. Connie's father and Will's uncle, from who they inherited their respective business, used to be business partners until they had a falling out which led to the two stores so close in proximity. Both Connie and Will speak nicely about the other's store when customers ask, but quietly seethe about the existence of the other and thus are not really on speaking terms. They are also both struggling financially, with Connie soon having to make a balloon payment on the store's property mortgage, while Will is trying to buy back what was his family's home which his ex-wife got in the divorce settlement, they both hoping a good Christmas season will yield ...

Cute, although...
9 December 2018 | by danteFZSee all my reviews

It's a cute holiday film, and enjoyable to watch. But the plot is basisally You've Got Mail, just with toy stores instead of book stores. Enjoyable nonetheless.
