Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The Perfect Holiday, directed by Lance Rivera, is that most dispiriting product, a formulaic movie that doesn't believe in itself. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Queen Latifah and Terrence Howard act as commentators, nudging the contrivances this way and that. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Dec 12, 2007

Rotten: Despite the flabby direction and uninspired plot, The Perfect Holiday almost works because Chestnut and Union are an attractive couple and you want them to get together. – David Wiegand, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 18, 2008

Rotten: For fans of lousy seasonal cheer, Dec. 25 comes early. – Wesley Morris, Boston Globe, Nov 24, 2011

True Love

It proves that anything can happen around Christmas. And that eve though the many faults people do, by lying to someone they love. But if true love is between the too, nothing can separate them. <3

Great Movie!

At the start I wasn't sure if I should of watched this movie. I had just seen "This Christmas" and loved it. This though, this was a different type. It was about christmas, love, and joy. It was an all around greta movie in my opinion, and I would reccomend it to anybody!


Believe it or not, my family just got done watching this movie about an hour ago. We were watching Starz on Demand and The Perfect Holiday came on. This is, by far, one of my all time favorite holiday movies. Even though it is Summer right now, we still enjoyed this. I recomend this movie to people who love a flat out good movie and people who love to laugh. This is worth the money and I am glad iTunes got this movie. I am so happy! : )
