My reaction to The Holiday was no different from my reaction to Meyers' other pieces. It's cute enough, the atmosphere is sufficiently romantic comedy-like, but somehow, for some reason, I just don't bond with it.

As a voracious consumer of chick media (I like alien shoot 'em ups too!), I tell you that the story arc is extremely surprising & delightful, and that you fellas can feel safe watching this as well.

Because everyone is rich and in love, you can see the happy ending coming a mile away, but with a film like this, it's the journey that's important and not the destination.

A leisurely feelgood rom-com.

A lot of ideas are circulating and the characters have taken hold of our emotions. If only Meyers had taken the quickest way there, it would be a much better movie.

The Holiday's redeeming feature (and it's a considerable one) is the 91-year-old Eli Wallach's astute and endearing performance.
December 30, 2006
The movie clocks in at just under two and a half hours, so the staying-awake part may be a challenge for some, but not one scene in the film feels extraneous or doesn't serve to tell the story.

An entertaining romp that succeeds on a level of pure escapism.

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

Writer-director Nancy Meyers' fluff machine is on overdrive...

A very pretty, safely balanced, sweet and sour film, for some nice bonding time with your other half.

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.
December 13, 2006
A finely polished piece of romantic cinema, with a generosity of spirit so all-encompassing that it's easy to forgive its occasional excesses.

We can all figure out where this thing is going but getting there is the prime attraction here.

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.

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.

Admittedly, this is a chick-flick. Guys may groan but gals are gonna love it. Like 'Love, Actually,' it's the Christmas comedy you've been waiting for.
