Last Holiday

Georgia Byrd (Queen Latifah) is a wanna-be chef who sells cookware in New Orleans, when she's informed by those in the know that she's got four months to live. She thinks 'stuff this' and embarks on a dream holiday vacation to a grand resort in Europe. There, with nothing to lose, she underes a metamorphosis. Her shy persona bubbles up into a new, un-inhibited, self - determined to make her final days a fun-a-rama. This is a remake of the 1950s English comedy starring Alec Guiness.

The frothy Last Holiday serves its purpose: amusing escapism.

The sort of thing you might enjoy on afternoon TV when laid up with the flu.

Here at least, Latifah has only two modes: heavily constipated and sass-tastic.

( out of 4) "Last Holiday" is a movie that takes advantage of the great good nature and warmth of Queen Latifah, and uses it to transform a creaky old formula into a comedy that is just plain lovable. To describe the plot is to miss the point, because this plot could have been made into countless movies not as funny and charming as this one.
