    As soapy, sappy, Christmas adaptations go, this one's pretty good - until it totally falls apart at the end with the most preposterous finale imaginable.
  2. This milquetoast cable movie doesn't even have the guts to make its protagonist dislikable enough to deserve a lesson. [22 Dec 2006, p.71]

    "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.

    If straining-to-be-inspirational, card-shop stocking fillers such as A Perfect Day are the best TV can do, then really, leave us to contemplate the meaning of the season in peace.
  5. The 22,013th ripoff of "A Christmas Carol" would be bad enough, but "A Perfect Day" jerks us back to so-called reality with a tricky ending that left me more angry than uplifted.
