Format: DVD
The Perfect Holiday is not necessarily a bad movie but its far from a good one too. While I admire a movie that does not try to be offensive and wants to be positive there is a thin line from being a little schmaltzy to laying it on real thick. The movie is not unwatchable. It has a talented all-star cast that do a decent job acting but the script is hackneyed and cheesy to a fault plus its pretty bland.

Spoiler Alert!

The story: Gabriell Union plays Nancy, a newly divorced woman who's daughter overhears her conversation about what she wants from a man: a compliment. The daughter goes to a mall Santa(played by Morris Chestnut) named Benjamin and wishes that her mom gets a compliment by her man. Benjamin(Chestnut) gives Nancy a compliment and soon they begin to date. Problems arise when Nancy's naive son, John John gets annoyed by Benjamin because the little tyke misses his arrogant and thoughtless wannabe-rapper father J-Jizzy(played by Charlie Murphy)who would rather be large than be with his family. Then things get even more complicated for the relationship between Nancy and Benjamin when J-Jizzy asks for Benjamin, who also sings to record with him. Queen Latifah plays Mrs Christmas, an angel who is also the narrator of the movie.

Opinion: Positive: this movie is not terrible. Negative: but its not memorable either. Positive: it has an all-star cast. Negative: they are all wasted on a script that pulls every Christmas cliche out of the book.
Positive: The Perfect Holiday is earnest and has a heart. Negative: its syrupy to the point of cheesiness. Positive: it makes an effort at humor. Negative: The humor misses more than it hits. Positive: Its the least offensive Christmas comedy ever made. Negative: It wallows in mediocrity like pigs do in mud.

The writing could have been better, but still it was a cute movie. Charlie Murphy was hysterical. Terrence Howard was funny and Morris Chestnut was yummy as always, so what was not to enjoy.

This movie was alright... really - alright. Morris Chestnut was yummy as ever and Gabrielle Union was cute as usual but not so mean in this movie (yay!). I thought it was nice to show her being a very involved and dedicated single mother of three kids and I liked the fact that she was intelligent and classy (as she always is). I wasn't quite sure why they forced Latifah and Terrence Howard in this movie. If you left the room at all, you could have easily missed their small parts throughout the movie. Faizon (sp) was kind of funny and Kat Williams was... Kat Williams. I'm not a fan of his so I have no comment about his role. I LOVE me some Charlie Murphy! He was crazy as ever! I gave it 4 stars because I "like" this movie. It's a cute holiday movie to watch with your family without being worried about anything obscene or profane. :)

I love Gabrielle Union and Morris Chestnut BUT The Perfect Holiday was not perfect. The story line was CUTE but not written for a major motion picture. This type of movie would have been great for Lifetime or a movie that goes straight to DVD format. I gave the movie 2 stars because the cast was well picked but the story line was lackluster.

I really loved this movie. It is funny and family orientated. I suggest that everyone get their family together and see this movie. I loved Gabriel Union and Morris Chestnut's (so handsome by the way)performance. I cannot wait for this movie to come out on November 11!! It is about time too!

Yeah, Terrance Howard was funny. However, he, and Latifah, the two best actors/characters in the movie are bit parts. They play minuscule and unimportant roles so don't expect much from them.

Also, the story is horribly unoriginal.

Tell me if you've heard this one before.

Man meets woman. Man tells lie to woman about himself. Man and woman fall in love. Man delays telling the truth about said lie because he doesn't want to ruin the relationship. Woman finds out truth at end of movie and is very angry. Man tells her he loves her but understands why she's mad. Woman comes to her sense and realizes that the lie was done for good reason and is of little importance. What is important is that she loves him. Woman surprises man at end of movie.

Now, take that story, copy & paste, add some santa hats, add Charlie Murphy (who is funny as hell by the way), add christmas music... and now you have Perfect Holiday.

Sound like it is worth $15-$20? Not really.

Watch it if you must, the acting is good enough, but don't expect anything worth a damn story wise.
