Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
There's not much original about the film, but it's played with high spirits and good cheer, there are lots of musical interludes, and it's pitched straight at families.

Chicago Tribune - Michael Phillips
Strives to be nothing more than easygoing and heartwarming.

The Hollywood Reporter - Michael Rechtshaffen
If "This Christmas" served up a crowd-pleasing portion of yuletide "Soul Food," then The Perfect Holiday offers dried-out leftovers.

Variety - Unnamed
Neither perfect nor much of a holiday, more like a fruitcake passed around from arthritic aunt to demented uncle -- stale, predictable and made with fossilized ingredients.

New York Daily News - Elizabeth Weitzman
If you're really hoping for a perfect holiday, steer clear of this stale fruitcake of a comedy.
