This is a movie with lots of great cuisine, and precious little flava.

For a movie about overcoming fear and living out loud, Last Holiday's too-tidy conclusion isn't a sign of hope so much as a lack of nerve.

One might gladly exercise the film's carpe-diem moral by concluding that life is too short for movies like Last Holiday.

A mild, fangless, forgettable thing that entertains some and offends little, barring one obnoxious subcontinental stereotype and a cloying urge to make everybody chipper at the end.

The movie completely falls apart. It doesn't make any sense, any of it.

This story of a gentle soul (Queen Latifah) who learns to live only after learning of her imminent death is as witless as it is formulaic.

Holiday certainly is harmless entertainment, but considering the pedigree of the talent here, the final product is more than a little disappointing.

Without Queen Latifah, Last Holiday would have been a somewhat tedious vacation, despite its beautiful setting.

Last Holiday is another anemic female empowerment fable that never really sustains its clunky momentum... feels misplaced in its aimless adventurous skin.

not a horrible movie, but it often lacks the spark and magical inspiration it aspires to impart on the audience

... overlong (it's almost two hours) and unfocused, but thanks to Latifah, at least you're in amiable company.

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.

The Queen is in fine form, but this particular throne is a bit rickety.

You can wait to see the Last Holiday during the 'off-season' rates.

While there is something undeniably enjoyable about watching someone likable enjoy themselves, it's not enough to make a good movie.

Wayne Wang directs the film as if he gets an extra commission for each Latifah reaction shot.
