This is a great get away movie. Christina gets to enter another world and see what a perfect Christmas is really like, maybe her life is not so bad after all.

Delightful holiday movie!

"Originally aired in 2007 as a tv movie on ABC Family's "25 Days of Christmas" package, Christina Milian stars as a harried single woman living in the same apartment building as her overbearing Italian mother, played by the Soprano's shrink Lorraine Bracco. Christina works at her mother's deli as well, and fantasizes about escaping to the perfect community. A package arrives for her that contains a mysterious snowglobe. One night after her family tries to take over her apartment, even trying to force her to move to a smaller apartment in the building, she retreats to her bedroom to study her newfound toy. She shakes it, and is magically transported to a "perfect" place, where everyday is preparing for Christmas. But soon she begins to realize it's not so perfect after all, though nothing sinister is going on. Then her friend in this fantasy land manages to come through to her world, and the misadventures begin. Along the way, she realizes her life isn't so bad after all, and her boyfriend in real life might just be Mr. Right.
Although children under 10 might not understand Christina's adult problems, it should be suitable for all family members."
Looking for the Perfect Christmas...

"Looking for the Perfect Christmas....That is what Angela Moreno (Christina Milian) is looking for (and the perfect man).
One day someone sends Angela a magical snowglobe and she thinks she found perfection. Hiliarity and all types of fun ensue. She discovers what she wants may not be so far away.
Great movie and perfect family fun.
The video and audio are just fine for a made for tv movie dvd. Not many extras: cast interviews, trailers and ABC 25 Days of Christmas preview.
With that being said, I give this movie and disc, my highest recommendation.
A Wonderful Holiday Movie That You'll Enjoy!

"I first watched this ABC Family Christmas movie this past Christmas and was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it! The story centers around Angela (Christina Milian), a New Yorker who longs for an old-fashioned Christmas like the ones in the movies. This is often difficult due to her loud, crazy, and meddling family that always seems to be in her way. They don't enjoy Christmas as much as Angela, and this frustrates her to no end. One evening Angela receives a snowglobe, which to her contains the perfect Christmas setting, and wishes she could be there. Well, her wish is granted and what ensues is definitely not what she expected. Angela eventually learns that Christmas is what you make of it and that you should appreciate what you have, crazy family and all. :)
I would highly recommend this movie during the holiday season or anytime you want to get into the Christmas spirit! You won't be disappointed!"
