A week before Christmas, Paula (Nicole Eggert) finds herself struggling with bills and life with her blue-collar husband Gary and her two daughters. When Nick, her High School boyfriend returns to town a wealthy art Gallery owner, Paula wonders if she made the wrong decision when she took the wrong date to the prom. What would her life have been like if she stayed with Nick? Christmas is a time for Miracles, and so when Paula wishes she could see what her life would have been like if she'd made the other choice, she finds herself magically transported through her washer/dryer to a parallel life where she is Nick's wife.
At first, this new life seems the answer to her dreams, as she shops and dines out with her newfound wealth. But she soon realizes that the grass is NOT always greener. Her relationship with Nick is in shambles, and she misses her real husband Gary and her two girls. When she sees Gary and her kids living a happy life with another woman, she wishes for just one Christmas gift to have back the life she didn't appreciate.
Cute Movie. Paula realizes after dreaming / living through briefly what she thought was the life she always wanted ... that what she had... was really a Wonderful Life!
One important Caution: in order for Paula to go into her supposed Dream World - she crawls thru the Clothes Dryer. This scene concerned me for young viewers- so please don't watch this with them. It's kind of a silly moment, but still the movie is cute and light-hearted.... and makes you appreciate your family and everyone around you all the more!
See or Skip:
See, but not with your children due to dryer scene mentioned above, plus there is drinking and relationship entanglements not suitable for young viewers.
