Eve's Christmas

"A wealthy and successful career woman gets a second chance in life when a magical wish transports her back in time eight years to when she walked away from her fiance to lead a business life in New York."

"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas everywhere you go... That is except in the eyes of 33-year-old Eve Stevens. She's spending Christmas Eve in a bar pounding back the cocktails. Outside, scenes of happy families and couples walking by arm in arm only deepen Eve's inner depression. A single, successful professional, Eve wonders what material success has brought her. The bar closes early forcing Eve to meander her way through the crowded cheerful streets back to her apartment. Rounding the final corner, Eve bumps into a homeless man, Brother James. As usual, Brother is ranting and raving, this time he's on about the lost holiday spirit. Brother pauses to look the tipsy Eve in the eye. He whispers to her, "wish upon the Christmas Star." Eve hands the man some coins and makes her way home. Alone, with no one and nowhere to go, Eve pulls out a photo album she hasn't touched in years..."

(Above taken from here).

This was a sweet Christmas romance, which I really enjoyed watching. Right up until the end you weren't sure exactly what choices Eve would make, and then... Was it all a dream? I know the answer, having watched it twice now, but I'm not going to give you the answer.

Sounds like one with mystery--but again--not on Netflix. I guess I'll be keeping my eyes open for lots of Christmas movies--hehe! I wish they showed more of them on the few channels I get (no cable). Oh well. You watch more Christmas movies than anybody I know, I think. Enjoy!! :):)

All these single folks finding "love" movies would drive me crazy(er) after the first couple.

Nikki:
Yes, it is.

Rita:
I enjoy Christmas movies, and if I haven't seen a movie, I like to watch it so I can know if I like it or not.

Iggy:
Yes, but I'm already crazy, so I don't have to worry about that. ;)
