Best. Christmas. Ever! plot

Here is a description of the Best. Christmas. Ever! plot as described by Netflix site Tudum:

"’Twas five days before Christmas and all through the house, the Sanders prepared for the holidays but Charlotte had doubts.

"Our story begins when Charlotte receives a holiday newsletter from her college friend Jackie that makes her feel like a bit of a Grinch. After all, Charlotte is stuck in a job she doesn’t much like and her family’s finances are tight. Meanwhile, Jackie recently sold her aviation company for millions of dollars and is enjoying an early retirement with her loving husband and incredibly smart children.

"As the Sanders family embarks on their long drive to Charlotte’s sister’s house, where they intend to spend the holidays, everyone is surprised when they unexpectedly arrive at the Jennings’ home instead. All except for Charlotte’s mischievous son Grant (Wyatt Hunt) — and his trusty stuffed sidekick Monkey Bob — who put the wrong address into the GPS. Now that they’re stuck spending Christmas with the Jennings, Charlotte makes it her mission to prove that Jackie’s life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, but she also may learn a lesson or two about the spirit of the season along the way."
