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.

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

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.

At best it's a bumpy ride through predictable territory.

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.

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

Latifah is warm and winning but her movie is predictable from beginning to end.
January 15, 2006
Last Holiday is another anemic female empowerment fable that never really sustains its clunky momentum... feels misplaced in its aimless adventurous skin.

If we are to live in a world of movies in which women are comically diagnosed with brain diseases and discover their moxie through base jumping in the Czech Republic, let us at least have Queen Latifah's brass to add a bass note to the treacle.

Though the movie isn't the 'Holiday' from hell, it's not one you should be anxious to go off on.

The script is so bland it could belong to one of those ABC Family Channel movies "starring" the third lead from a cancelled sitcom.
January 14, 2006
...and while the terrific cast has managed to wrestle a less-than-average script to the ground, it's still rather rank.

Latifah is as charming and sassy as always. ... Someday, she'll find a script that can match her magnificent personality.
January 13, 2006
One wishes director Wayne Wang, who depends far too much on madcap action to keep his movie moving, had as much confidence in Latifah herself.
January 13, 2006
An awful lot makes no sense in Jeffrey Price and Peter Seaman's script, starting with its basic premise.
January 13, 2006
Instead of deft comedy with a depth charge of feeling, we have now a contraption festooned with cute sparkles and tiny heart grabs.
