The Holiday works its magic because Meyers invests time in the characters instead of the scenarios.

Running away from a broken heart has never been so much fun as in The Holiday, a delightful romantic comedy about love, life and making a change.

At least 60 percent of this film tries too hard to be as cute as a Christmas puppy and just ends up piddling on the carpet

A finely polished piece of romantic cinema, with a generosity of spirit so all-encompassing that it's easy to forgive its occasional excesses.

Saying that Nancy Meyers' The Holiday is the best of the year's Christmas movies to date isn't saying very much.

Myers has established herself as Nora Ephron Lite, which is the same as establishing yourself as white bread without the crust.

Despite the honeyed charms of its female leads, the 138-minute Holiday wears out its welcome ... When Diaz meets Law's cloyingly adorable two girls, it's like choking to death on a saccharine candy cane.

Through its awkward meet-stupids and believable meet-cutes, "The Holiday" rings so many notes of joy that you can't help but like it.

It takes a certain amount of power to convince four talented actors to deliver performances that are shrill and irritating.
December 11, 2006
The Holiday is too predictable and at 138 minutes way too padded to thoroughly enjoy.

Nancy Meyers' trademark thinking comedies always deliver a perceptive perspective on relationships, but this one forgets to be funny too.

There's a minute glimmer of joy to be had from this frosty piece of cake, but you have to work awfully hard to find it.

The characters pace and putter around in the story like animals building their nests, and by the time they finally settle down with their mates, we have a grudging affection for them.

There's good news for Jude Law fans. With The Holiday, the actor has taken a sad career song and started to make it better.
