    I liked it. Yes, it was a little sappy, but so what? Rob Lowe is great in this movie, as in anything he plays in. Great traditional family values----money and fame are not everything.

    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]

    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.
  3. 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.
