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.

This is one of my daughter's favorite movies.
She had already bought a copy before, but for some reason, it always hung at one spot. We tried to clean it, tried
to do the toothpaste thing, etc etc, but nothing fixed it.

So, this was our second copy of those movie. It is one of those feel-good-happy-outcome holiday movies that you want to watch all year long.
It made me a Morris Chestnut fan as well. You'll want to punch out the ex-spouse (played by Eddie Murphy's brother), but if you can get past the truly annoying performance by him (I hope it was good acting and he isn't like that in real life! HAR!), the rest of the movie is a lot of fun.

This was a cute movie, and of course you got to look at Morris Chestnut for over an hour. Whew, what a guy! I wonder if he's that perfect at home? This movie was about a man that was trying to get his song bought by a producer and in the meantime he had to moonlight as a shopping mall Santa. Along with his BIG elf sidekick and a girl who catches his eye (and also happens to be divorced from a famous singer) this ended up being very cute.

I love this move. Who wouldn't want to see love in the Christmas time. All the actors are very good actors, this movie is also very funny and clean.
My only disappointment is that my movie came to me very damaged. It was so damaged that so many of the scenes would not play without skipping to the next scene. I had to throw the movie away and purchase a new one. I was very disappointed with the sender.

This is a classic, that will never go out of style. Perfect for the entire family. I had looked every where for this, Angels & Demons, and Freedom Song, but to no avail. Now, by shopping at Amazon, I have all three for nearly the price of two. Truthfully, I think I've only had a problem with Amazon, about three times in I don't know how many years. Even when other people gave horrible reviews, mostly because they didn't read the entire description, over looked something, or just had a bad experience.

This movie is one of my favorites. I think all actors did a great job. Love the fact it started out as a hook up by a little girl for herdivorced mI'm and a mall santa, but as soon as Santa saw mom the little girl did not have to convince him any further. He thought the mom was beautiful and he had to have her. GREAT FAMILY MOVIE!!!

I loved this movie, it was heart filled. It was so good in my opinion that I bought it so I could watch it over and over no matter what time of the year. It may be a Christmas movie but I like watching it anytime / all the time.

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.
