As the holiday season rolls in, bringing the twinkling lights and the festive cheer, Netflix has just the right treat for your family gatherings. Let’s unwrap “Family Switch,” the latest Netflix Original Christmas movie that’s charming its way into family watchlists this festive season.
Family Switch Plot
What would happen if your family members switched bodies with each other?
Think Freaky Friday, but with the whole family and with Christmas vibes.
In “Family Switch” we follow the Walker family as their lives are interchanged after a cosmic event. Dad becomes the son, the son becomes dad, mum becomes the daughter and the daughter becomes mum. Oh, and there is also a switch between the baby and the dog. The body switch causes the family to live life in each other’s shoes as their hilarious journey to find their way back to normal will bring them closer together than they ever thought possible.
Netflix lined up a few heavy hitters for this Netflix original. The mum Jess (Jennifer Garner) is a big-time architect who is on the verge of making partner at her firm. Dad Bill (Ed Helms) is a band teacher who once had a promising career in the band ‘Maroon 6’. The 17-year-old CC (Emma Myers) is a gifted soccer player whose upcoming game is in front of U.S. national team scouts, and the son Wyatt (Brady Noon) is such a borderline genius who is applying for early acceptance to Yale as a ninth-grader.
While “Family Switch” has only recently been released on Netflix, the reviews over on IMDb and Rotten Tomatoes haven’t been earth-shattering — however, the film isn’t out here to win any Golden Globes. “Family Switch” hits the mark of providing a fun and easy-watching movie to add to your Christmas binge list.
