I recently borrowed "Last Holiday" starring Queen Latifah from my local library. I had remembered seeing the previews for the movie when it first came out and had also seen a special on Food Network about the movie. I love to cook, which I remembered was a major plot point of this movie, so I figured I would probably like the film.
I couldn't have been more right; I loved the movie from the start! Queen Latifah's performance is so genuine that you can't help but to love her character, Georgia Byrd. The idea of an "average, everyday person" dreaming for something bigger in life was very heart-warming. The supporting cast, including LL Cool J and Alicia Witt, were also very endearing and genuine. I don't want to reveal too much of the plot to those who haven't seen the movie, but if you are looking for a "feel good" story, this is definitly a film to check out!
I watched the movie three times in the week that I had it from the library, and just recently bought my own copy of the DVD. "Last Holiday" has definitly been added to my list of all-time favorite movies, and one that I hope to enjoy for years to come.
