Finally watched this one the whole way through. Although Cameron Diaz's acting was pretty crappy at times, the movie itself wasn't - I thought it was a fun idea for a story, and I enjoyed seeing it all play out.
The stakes could not humanly be lower: Will these two beautiful privileged white gals find romance? If there were one shred of suspense maybe I would care, but there wasn't so I didn't. In fact, I found myself laughing at how unrealistic certain scenes were.
I was pleasantly surprised by this lighthearted Film I thought the characters all had chemistry! I disagree Kate and Jack Black were great together. A woman appreciate great humor in a man! And Eli Wallace's last movie he was so touching. I like the reminiscent of what it was like in old Hollywood!
Utterly flimsy, fluffy, and so damn generic. It is an ultimate white people movie in which 4 attractive white people try to deal with their personal issues, and finding love again through the most unbelievably contrived plot. Nancy Meyers has done some great work in the past as a writer, but when it comes to directing her own films, she's not exactly a good one. The cast is damn likable, it has above-average production values, and there are some really funny moments. But in the end, nothing in The Holiday stays with you and it's a damn shame.
This is a quite cute movie, with some funny moment and some reflective one. Unfortunately, the dialogues are quite trivial and the acting quality doesn't always shine through the movie. The plot and the story is nice and ironic, even though there are some absurdities that make it less realistic. Anyway, a classical romantic comedy with an obvious "feel-good" goal.
