"A Perfect Christmas" follows a newlywed couple celebrating their first Christmas together. They invite their families to join them for the holidays, but when Steve (Dillon Casey) is laid off just before Christmas and Cynthia (Susie Abromeit) discovers she's pregnant, they both keep their news secret in hopes that the celebration runs smoothly.

The film is well made and is very entertaining. It also has a message about being honest and being happy. The film may not be "Original" but it is a film that is worth watching. The casting is excellent.

Made for Adults this Hallmark film is above average in every way. If you skip watching this then you are missing out.
