Captain! It's a beige alert.

Somehow the poster for this movie gives as much away as the movie itself. There's no real character exploration, the emotions of the actors arn't entirely convincing, and the plot it too obvious to poke fun at. Two lonely hearted women swap houses for the Christmas holiday, wherein they fall in love with the nearest man available.

If this film were a piece of clothing it would be a... read more

A lot of potential, but ending was bad

Overall, a very so-so 'forgetable' chick flick. There was enough of a decent story and good jokes throughout (thanks in large part to Jack Black). The acting was awesome as usual from Kate Winslet, but as I just mentioned, Jack Black was a surprise in this movie. He didnt play his trademark 'complete goofball' character, yet still managed to act and be genuinly funny. Jude Law, another strong p... read more

Yep, It was a pretty good movie i have to admit.. Its a romance, and i don't normally enjoy romance movies.. but this was very entertaining! It was also sad.. but overall very moving and sweet.

Jude Law, Cameron Diaz, Jack Black and Kate Winslet - With this all-star cast it has to be good.. and it is! Especially Jude Law made it great.. I recommend everyone goes and see's this! Ente... read more

“There are some romantic comedies that I don't like, but The Holiday is an exception. I found it sweet and very entertaining at times. The four stars, Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law and Jack Black are very talented actors, and their performances take centre stage here. Kate Winslet was lovely as Iris, but I was really delighted with Cameron Diaz as Amanda, especially when she is seen wearing stilettos in the snow. At my first viewing the whole cinema were like "How does she do that?" I also thought their exchange on the phone was hilarious too. As the men, I really liked Jack Black as Miles, a perfect blend of subtlety and spirit. Jude Law, an actor who isn't always my cup of tea, does very well indeed, as Diaz's new friend Graham. This tells the story of two women who swap homes and ” read more
