A Perfect Christmas – Hallmark – 2 hours and 0 minutes
Steve and Cynthia are newlyweds with a concrete plan for the holidays and their entire lives. Or at least they thought they did. With canceled hotel reservations, a broken camper heater, and a break up, Cynthia’s family and Steve’s family will all be under the same roof for Christmas. Patricia, Steve’s mother, and Jerry, Cynthia’s father, are not quite fond of their respective children in law. And to make matters harder, Cynthia learns she is pregnant, which is 4 years sooner than her plan. And to make matters hardest, Steve loses his job. Steve and Cynthia decide to keep their news a secret from the family and each other, so they won’t ruin the holidays. But their family may do that just by being under the same roof. Steve and Cynthia will try the best they can to make this a perfect Christmas.
Combine the ups and downs of National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation with the tension of The Family Stone, and you have A Perfect Christmas (FTC Affiliate Disclaimer). The passive aggressiveness in this family can be cut with a knife, but it is often eased by reminders of family tradition. This family is a lot like yours. They fight, laugh, and love. You will find yourself asking “What else can go wrong”. But with every family, working together can get you through any storm. This movie covers a lot of holiday morals in an engrossing way. Sit back and enjoy this movie.
