Movie Info

Director Peter Levin brings author Richard Paul Evans' heartwarming novel to the small screen in this made for cable drama starring Rob Lowe, Paget Brewster, Frances Conroy, and Christopher Lloyd. Unexpectedly downsized from his once-comfortable job, Robert Harlan (Lowe) decides to finally pursue his dreams of becoming a writer. In order to summon inspiration, Harlan draws on the emotions his wife experienced after losing her father and the book quickly becomes a bestseller. But success has spoiled Robert Hanlan, and now his relationships with both his family and his friends are suffering: In addition to growing further apart from his devoted wife and young daughter, Hanlan barely speaks to the agent who used to be his best friend. When a mysterious stranger makes an ominous prediction about Hanlan's life, the egotistical writer finally receives a much-needed wake-up call.

...the film's emphasis on sentimental and downright heavy-handed elements becomes overwhelming

Only Frances Conroy is able to somehow transcend the clichéd script and bring a palpable sense of personhood to her role.

Audience Reviews for A Perfect Day


Extremely predictable - this is what has come to be expected from a Christmas movie. It wasn't horrible, I've just seen it all before.

When my fam saw this on television we were all laughing a bunch times five. Casting and script gave this film a lot of fun along the way. Just watch out for those snow dogs!

This is really an interesting movie and presents some thought provoking situations. lt goes sour once you learn the twist at the end. Other than that, it's an OK movie.
