    Director Sara Sugarman presents less a tale of love and redemption than a colorful how- to on losing $97 million in a few short years. Donatella skates through rehab as an afterthought, resulting in a comeback story lacking any emotional investment.

    About 10 years too late to qualify as provocative.

    Airing on consecutive weekends, the third and fourth installments, like many a sequel, reinforce the law of diminishing returns.... The dialogue--and plot--only deteriorates from here.

    "A Perfect Day is a Christmas movie" only in the sense the movie's denouement coincides with Christmas. Otherwise, it's just a run-of-the-mill contrivance where problems are easily rectified and life can be distilled into greeting card sentiments.

    Everyone appears far too prepared to play a part, and any self-realization comes far too fast without any real transformation. Either producers picked a bunch of duds to participate or else the editing team was so hopped up on caffeine they cut out the juicy parts.

    "Big Brother" debuted Wednesday night with all of the style and drama of a Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol commercial. ... Five days a week of people in a cramped house full of Ikea furniture is like a bad college flashback. [10 Jul 2000]
