Joy Hoffsteder (Bailee Madison) has a dysfunctional family. Her single
dad Bob (French Stewart) is over his head. She pines to be in her
seemingly perfect neighbor's family. She's a band geek with only one
friend. She gets picked on by the popular cheerleaders and has an
unrequited crush on Tom. It's the Christmas holiday. She keeps picking
Change from her deck of cards. Then she gets hit by a car driven by the
'perfect' neighbor Marcie. It's a body switched into Marcie's family.
She becomes the popular volleyball captain with boyfriend Tom but
things are not all good. Her new sister hates her. Her old best friend
is scared of her. Her old family is a mess and she's not in love with
her new life either.
This is perfectly fine for a simple family holiday. Bailee is good at playing the trying too hard character. She should steer into that persona. Everything else is fine. It's a Wonderful Life. It's all that but not as good. The production is a little better than TV movie level. Don't expect too much.
A shy high school student's Christmas wish comes true only it isn't exactly as wonderful as she'd hoped.
