Holidate

Critics Consensus

Holidate's self-aware approach to rom-com formula is refreshing, but it's offset by a questionable premise and unnecessarily vulgar jokes.

  • The best thing that "Holidate" has going for it is that Roberts and Bracey do have great chemistry, but they just don't have a story or a script that can do it justice.

  • [A] resolutely mediocre romantic comedy...

  • "Holidate" won't change your mind about the tread-worn challenges of romantic comedies, but its leads leverage their charms nicely.

  • Like so much of Netflix's quantity over quality output, Holidate is broad, unsubtle, and seemingly designed to be half-watched, phone in hand. Yet within that framework, it finds a unique comedic spark that keeps it zipping along.

  • They weather all these things with a panache that makes you warm to them, for it almost compensates for the script's utter predictability.
