Queen Latifah remains here an utterly imperturbable, warm and human presence.

A nice little romantic comedy which also packs an emotional punch.

Here at least, Latifah has only two modes: heavily constipated and sass-tastic.

If you had three weeks left to live, I wouldn't recommend you spend your precious time watching this.

It's not exactly distinguished, but pleasantly warm-hearted, and the sort of thing you might enjoy on afternoon TV when laid up with the flu.

It's obvious where "Last Holiday" goes and at times it takes too long to get there, but watching Latifah work her style and spirit when she gets to the Grandhotel Pupp is pure enjoyment.

Not the worst movie ever made -- no thanks to Latifah.

A wish fulfilment fantasy dressed up with a shopping spree, a gorgeous mountain resort in Europe, a world class chef creating new menus every day, champagne, exotic massage and health spa, snow capped scenery and linen to die for

Wayne Wang keeps things on an even keel, with good supporting performances from LL Cool J as Latifah's romantic interest, Timothy Hutton as a corporate villain and Alicia Witt as Hutton's secretary/mistress.

Latifah is the risk-taking spark in a film that takes few chances of its own.

Is Wayne Wang going to keep remaking Maid In Manhattan until he gets it right? Well, keep trying Wayne.

Money can buy you happiness in this inferior remake - although its makeover storyline may please fans of The Princess Diaries et al.

It's clear that Queen Latifah is a proper, old school movie star - the camera loves her and her constantly upbeat screen persona is extremely likeable. It's just a shame that studios don't seem able to find a decent vehicle for her talents.

[Latifah] shows both comedic and dramatic range, and garners sympathy despite the script's lack of depth.

Shadows on the Wall

This is a terrific story with lots of wonderful ideas swirling around inside it, and a few genuinely wonderful sequences. But the film suffers from a complete lack of attitude or style.

"Last Holiday" is more than a story that lets us escape. It's a story we'd like to believe could actually happen.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Set in a luxurious locale and awash in generosity for its characters, even the mean ones, Last Holiday delivers the glamour and sentimentality associated with classic movies.

[Latifah] makes you easily sympathize with her character, even as you're aware of the plot's utter contrivance.
