It's the perfect feel-good story blessed by the comedic timing of Queen Latifah and the adorable face of LL Cool J.

The main reason I find Last Holiday so charming, despite its corny concept and broad humor, is because I get to see good things happen to a good person.

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.

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

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

Note to Queen Latifah: I have almost forgiven you for the inexcusable "Taxi" now.

January 22, 2006 admittedly inconsequential yet undeniably uplifting piece of work...

Queen Latifah has such an engaging on-screen persona that she's able to make gem out of what would have otherwise been a lump of coal of a movie.

Last Holiday is the kind of film perfectly suited for those in the mood for something that doesn't require much more than a willingness to settle in for some warmhearted silliness. On that level, it's delicious.
