Is The Perfect Holiday a good film? The answer is: not really, but it isn't terrible.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 12, 2007
Jovial and junky as all get out, The Perfect Holiday is about what you'd expect from a holiday comedy daring to put 'perfect' in its title. As in anything but.

There's not much original about the film, but it's played with high spirits and good cheer, there are lots of musical interludes, and it's pitched straight at families.

Queen Latifah and Terrence Howard act as commentators, nudging the contrivances this way and that.

Most people seeing this movie might wonder what Queen Latifah did to convince Terrence Howard to take on what will surely be his worst role of the year.

I'd rather watch 90 minutes of a flickering yule log video than sit through this overcooked Christmas goose again.

Love eventually conquers all, as expected, but not before we're forced to sit through a nearly endless parade of clichés, unfunny jokes, and empty drama.

December 11, 2007
The dialogue is so one-note, the plot absurd, and most attempts at humor fall flat.

December 16, 2007
Perfect Holiday is far from an offensive effort. It's just pathetic and forgettable, and when it comes to Christmas cheer, mediocrity should never be left under the tree.

The sparks that [Union and Chestnut] ignite onscreen cannot save the disjointed mess of a film that is The Perfect Holiday.

The cold void of January can't come fast enough if it means an end to releases like The Perfect Holiday.

The actors distinguish themselves mainly by their ability to make the material, directed and co-written by Lance Rivera, seem even more painfully awkward and unfunny than it already is -- which is very.

Not perfect. Not really about a holiday. At least 'The' is accurate!

Picking the single dumbest element in this extremely dumb movie is easy.

There's a lot of sap in this Christmas tree.
December 11, 2007
In the annals of Noel films so wincingly, gratingly, insultingly bad that a lump of coal would be vastly preferable, The Perfect Holiday ranks alongside Surviving Christmas for sheer unwatchability.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4

For fans of lousy seasonal cheer, Dec. 25 comes early.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4
December 12, 2007
The Perfect Holiday, directed by Lance Rivera, is that most dispiriting product, a formulaic movie that doesn't believe in itself.
