Synopsis

Watch: The Christmas Switch 2014 123movies, Full Movie Online – Eddie Bennett is a fast-talking, Three-card Monte dealer who has hustled the streets of New York City for the last 15 years. Eddie along with his friends, has mastered every scam there is until one day he is visited by a mysterious man who offers him an unusual proposition. He will give Eddie the chance to achieve eternal redemption for all the bad deeds he has done. The price is simple: he must transfer his spirit to a different body for three weeks. This way an aging, ailing Santa Claus, Sam, can use Eddie’s body to play St. Nick for one more Christmas. Eddie thinks the man is nuts and beside, redemption is a sucker’s bet. If he were to go through with the deal, he’d want a million dollars in cash. That’s the pay off. The mysterious man snaps his fingers and a million dollars appears before a dumbfounded Eddie. “The choice is yours,” says the man. “You can have the money or the pearly gates. That’s up to you. All we want is your body for a few weeks.” For one second Eddie hesitates and actually considers eternal redemption. He then comes to his senses. He takes the money of course. The terms are agreed upon and, at the stroke of midnight, Eddie finds himself in Sam’s body and Sam in Eddie’s. The next three weeks finds Sam bringing good cheer to kids throughout the city. Eddie, stuck in Sam’s body, counts his time in bed just waiting to get paid. However, when Eddie follows Sam one day to a department store, he sees Sam, in his body, giving presents and cheer to the children. Eddie could never imagine himself doing that. But there he is, in the flesh, bringing joy to these children and their parents. Eddie starts to question the meaning of Christmas. Maybe it’s not what he thinks it is: “Get what you can, when you can.” Maybe there is something to this redemption thing. Moreover, Eddie meets Sam’s daughter, Susan, and finds himself falling in love. Complications arise when Eddie’s friends find out about the million dollar pay off and want part of the action. Eddie must overcome his greedy friends and allow Sam his final night on Christmas Eve. Through Eddie’s wit and guile, he gives Sam that last night and finally finds the real meaning of Christmas the gambler’s way..
Plot: Santa Claus temporarily switches bodies with a younger man to make his job easier during Christmas.

Redemption at christmas
Christmas has always been my favourite time of year, as it means lots of family time and reliving the nostalgia of singing and listening to carols, watching Christmas films and animations, playing festive games and opening presents. It will always be dear to my heart and nothing will ever change that for the world.

‘The Christmas Switch’, seeing it as someone who wanted to see a different festive film other than the ones watched every year, is never going to be one of my favourites or one of the timeless festive films. Did find it to not be exactly great and that there are flaws. ‘The Christmas Switch’ is though a more than watchable film and avoids some, though not all, of the traps that other Christmas films have fallen into. One of the better new Christmas films seen recently.

As to be expected, the story is predictable and has very few surprises, a lot of easily telegraphed scenes here. Occasionally the pace drags.

It is not without its cheesy and schmaltzy moments as well and some of the acting is really not much to write home about.

However, ‘The Christmas Switch’ is a decent looking film, with some lovely scenery especially. The music provides some affectionate nostalgia and is pleasant to listen to, while the direction avoids being too routine. Didn’t find myself irritated by the characters at least and wasn’t bored.

Despite the predictability, ‘The Christmas Switch’ has its heart in the right place and has a sweet and relevant message that is easily relatable and didn’t feel preachy. There is definitely a festive spirit and the atmosphere is very difficult to dislike. Lots of warmth and charm here, with enough parts to warm and melt the heart, never does it feel too juvenile or mean-spirited and the sentimentality doesn’t become too much. Other actors are better than average and has some appeal.

Overall, likeable and above average if nothing to be blown away by. 6/10 Bethany Cox
