Here at least, Latifah has only two modes: heavily constipated and sass-tastic.

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.

Money can buy you happiness in this inferior remake - although its makeover storyline may please fans of The Princess Diaries et al.
February 22, 2006
At best it's a bumpy ride through predictable territory.
January 17, 2006
The most surprisingly satisfying Hollywood comedy in ages.
January 15, 2006
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.
January 13, 2006
It may not be much -- it's a remake of a 1950 Alec Guinness film -- but it is as bright as a Christmas bauble.
January 13, 2006
In its corny, cartoonish way, it even suggests a generosity of spirit that's faithful to the 1950 original.
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
This is a movie with lots of great cuisine, and precious little flava.
January 13, 2006
Latifah's carpe diem spirit sustains the picture, even when the script is carpe dumb.
January 13, 2006
Last Holiday is a thoroughly mediocre dramedy.
January 13, 2006
The Queen never lets us down.
January 13, 2006
Last Holiday isn't much more than a fantasy, but it's a sweet one, and it's far more worthy of attention than such hideous garbage as Rumor Has It . . . .
January 13, 2006
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.
January 13, 2006
The pace drags, the stunt double work is obvious and the slapstick, especially a ski-hill scene, is contrived and extended.
January 13, 2006
Track down the old movie if you crave a real meal.
January 13, 2006
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.
January 13, 2006
Last Holiday, in its feathery, good-hearted way, is enough to give you pause.
January 13, 2006
One might gladly exercise the film's carpe-diem moral by concluding that life is too short for movies like Last Holiday.
