The Holiday Reviews
November 14, 2014
While there were parts that I definitely liked, the movie seemed confused through most of its two hour run-time.

Even though it's predictable in points and have an ordinary tone of romance, "The Holiday" film offers some sweetness and good chemistry between the main cast, resulting in the film being good-hearted. (B)

My dislike of the film probably comes from my severe dislike of Winslet and Diaz but I think it's fair to say that while the idea is good, it's predictable, and as emotionally stunted as the main characters.

Grr.I hate Jack Black....but I sort of wanted to see this, so I'll deal with it, I guess.

It isn't the greatest romance around but The Holiday just feels extremely down to earth. Black is easy to relate to, Law is downright charming, Diaz offers the laughs and Winslet is provides some really sweet moments that make The Holiday a truly solid, family friendly watch.

All the characters did very well (except Jack Miles - man I hate this guy's pathetic acting).

What a great holiday movie! This film comes when many others offer something the same. But this one stunned me in all way. Romantic movie for christmas? why not? and this one is successful. To be the highlight, the music score is the best. Maybe the best that Hans Zimmer ever made..

The Holiday was directed by Nancy Meyers in 2006. It is not a popular film. It is a romance and a comedy. This movie starring Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law and Jack Black. In the same order Amanda, Iris, Graham and Miles. It takes place in England and in Los Angeles because there are two stories at the same time. The plot is about Amanda and Iris who are in bad periods and whants to change them life just during the holiday to see other people. Then, on internet, both women decide to swap them house for a while. In each country, each women met new faces and found love. The movie had very good acting. I enjoyed this film.

It offers 2 relaxing hours of past-time, but nothing special.

The Holiday has a great cast of talented stars. The story is simple and it has the feel good thing going for it. However, about 10 minutes into this, I was able to guess exactly how it would play through and end. Also this movie should just be renamed "cliche romance movie."

I love this movie, it reminds me so much of my sister and me...and maybe I'm just overly attached to this flick because of my feelings.
But feelings aside, I find this film truly enjoyable.

I didn't believe in any of the acting. It felt like even they were wondering what they were doing in this movie.

It was nice to see Kate Winslet do something different and Jack Black act like a normal person. Not a fan of Cameron Diaz and her over-acting... and LOVED Eli Wallach...oh yea.. and it was nice to be reminded of how hunky Jude Law is.

This film is way long...but delivers the goods!! The Holiday is a great achivement by Nancy Meyers (Something`s Gotta Give). The performances are excellent as well as the premise.
