This 2007 comedy depicts the relationship between cynical 11-year-old Janice, her anxious mother and their deteriorating, yet verbal, apartment. After receiving an unusual Christmas list from her daughter, Janice’s mother must wait until Christmas day for the truth behind Janice’s troubling requests to be revealed. The only comfort available to Janice and her mother throughout this time are fantasies of their respective celebrity crushes, Justin Timberlake and Harrison Ford.
