Stars: Tyra Banks
Listen to the Lifetime Uncorked Podcast here!
Synopsis (via Freeform)
Grace is a hot mess in the middle of a quarter-life crisis, realizing that she is in over her head as a toy company’s CEO. To make it worse, her wild-child ways are causing the company’s stock to plummet.
Grace likes to party and hang out Perez Hilton. IDK. She gets so drunk and becomes a sloppy mess. She misses her mom, who is in jail, but has to get back to her CEO job of Marathon Toys. Cyber Monday doesn’t go well and they have to cut under performing toys, including the Eve doll. (The toy that built the company.)at
Grace’s child neighbor talks her into having a sconce to get Eve to help save the company. We also get a picture of Lindsay Lohan, because remember she was in the original. Then some Christmas (or maybe devil) magic happens.
Eve comes to life and is all new being on Earth. She doesn’t know that coffee is hot but know what hotlanta is? Grace thinks Eve is someone who is hired to pretend to be Eve, but begins to think that maybe she really is her childhood doll? Grace brings her to brunch and her friends are like WHO IS THIS WOMAN? Eve is like who is Mimosa and where are her bottoms? Eve goes on to eat all the butter in the restaurant.
Eve finds out that Grace is planning on discontinuing the Eve doll and calls the Eve office. Where Tyra Banks is doing a spoof of herself. (Including the “We were rooting for you.” meme. Eve raps with lil yachty and then saves Grace from getting hit by a car.
Cue a makeover, or should I say Ty-over? Hair, wardrobe (With fashion designer, Christian Cowan) and everyone realizes that Eve is an Eve doll. Tyra or Eve, sorry, responds by singing.
Grace admits to Eve that she didn’t have a childhood and wonders if her mother ever even wanted her. Eve hatches a plan to relive Grace’s childhood and they do a bunch of Christmas stuff while rap music plays. Grace see a handsome man from the beginning of the movie, a love interest more than half way. Eve also gets a love interest, the chef from brunch. She tells him she wants to eat his pecs??? They are both in love with their respective men.
Freeform is trying to shoehorn some more Christmas things into the movie like mistletoe and decorating a Christmas tree (With a special edition Christmas Eve doll tree topper.)
Grace (with the help of her friends, child neighbor, and Eve) look to reinvigorate the Eve doll line. They have a slumber party to brainstorm. Grace goes for a lame hard sell but her child neighbor speaks from the heart. The modern kids want to be taught to be anything they can dream of being. Cue a random dance party and pillow fight.
Another montage or “working”, Grace overhears Eve saying “Mission Accomplished” and think she is two timing her. Grace says the spell again and Eve disappears.
Meanwhile, the board votes to evict Grace from her position in the company. (Turns out the board leader did some shady dealing and put her mom in jail.) Grace finds out and goes to visit her mom in jail. She learns that her mom believes in magic (Wiccan, not Christmas.) and inspires her to never go down without a fight.
Grace’s crashes a presentation and brings Eve 2.0 to rap? They show off the dolls that the kids created. Love is Love, Short and Thick, and Quarterback Eve??? Everyone loves it, Even Grace’s mom is prision. Who won’t remain in prison much longer. The bad board member framed his mother, who will be released before… Christmas. This is allegedly a Christmas movie.
Minority Report: Every major character in this movie.
Why is the kid neighbor always wearing kitty ears?
