The Holiday

As a result of relationships gone wrong, strangers Iris (Kate Winslet) and Amanda (Cameron Diaz) find themselves in the same situation; alone and loveless during the festive season. To remedy the situation the two arrange a switch, moving into each others homes across the globe, with the hope that new surroundings will boost their self esteem and offer an opportunity to turn over a new leaf. What they find is the last thing they thought they wanted: men.

The Best Movie in a Long Time

I went into this movie with hardly any expectations, I thought it might have a few laughs, but otherwise thought it was going to be just another romantic comedy situated around Christmas. I was wrong. The combination of American and British actors and film influences meant you get the best of both worlds. The acting was superb. Extremely fine...

What have we here? A holiday movie that doesn't make everyone grumpy? A romantic comedy with real sense of how romance feels, both good and bad, when caught in its throes?..

Nancy Meyers makes the kinds of films that people complain no one makes anymore. The Holiday is the type of welcome diversion that only Meyers still seems to specialize — a romantic comedy...
