    Synopsis


    The Holiday
    Nancy Meyers' romantic comedy Holiday stars Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet as two women who exchange houses in order to get a new lease on life. After each suffers her fair share of romantic disappointments, Englishwoman Iris (Winslet) and L.A. woman Amanda (Diaz) meet on-line at a website devoted to helping people exchange houses for vacations. Each agrees to spend the Christmas holiday at the other's home. While each suffers from a minor case of culture shock, both women also end up becoming involved with a man. Iris makes the acquaintance of an upbeat everyman played by Jack Black, while Amanda spends time with a handsome Brit played by Jude Law. Both women must decide what to do with these new relationships as their pre-arranged house switch is scheduled to last less than two weeks. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

      All time favorite

      I watched this movie by myself late one night while my husband slept and I fell in love with it. I told my husband to watch it with me the next day and he loved it as well. I can not get enough of this movie. I watch it everytime it is on T.V. and I am looking for it in stores, but it is always sold out. :( So I will just keep looking. I hope a lot of romantic comedy avoiders will at least try it because this movie surprised me and my husband the skeptic and I believe it will surprise you too. Best movie in a long time. :)

      Funnier Than You'd Expect

      I watched this movie with my girlfriend expecting Jack Black to be the funny guy that he is in this movie. However, Cameron Diaz is hilarious in The Holiday. She has some classic drunk scenes where she is just undeniably hysterical. The plot of the movie is great as well, as Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet switch homes for the "holiday" to try and get away from their ever more difficult lives. The plot gets much more twisted from there, and anymore and I'll ruin it for you. Anyways a must see romantic comedy, and it really holds true on the comedy side.

      I rented this not really knowing what to expect, but less than 48 hours after watching it - I now own it. The story line is fairly unique in this day and age, especially when you have seen almost every angle in a "love story". All the characters were very warm, even Jack Black, who you would expect to be his typically crazy self. This movie surprised me and has become a household favorite. I especially recommend this movie for anyone that is a true movie fan and movie music fan. Don't miss it!

      Wonderful Movie

      The screenplay for this movie is wonderful and these four actors and actresses bring it to life wonderfully! I would have never imagined the combination of Kate Winslet, Jack Black, Cameron Diaz, and Jude Law coming together to make a great movie, but I am so glad they were cast for these roles. They were perfect! I really loved the story and the twists and turns of the movie were great! I reccommend it to anyone. It will make men and women laugh!

      Cameron Diaz is a work alcoholic and Kate Winslet is a love scorn book editor. They decide to swap houses to get away from their troubled lives, only to complicate their lives more by falling in love. Jude Law and Jack Black play the love interest. One of the bright spots of the movie is Eli Wallach as an retired Hollywood playwright.

      Delightful look at "trying again" at romance

      Posted

      Some may consider this a "chick-flick", but it really is a lighthearted look at not giving up on romance. The story is enhanced by the talents of Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, and Jack Black. It is wonderful how a "change of scenery" can open up new thoughts about ones self and others. How nice to see Eli Wallach make an appearance in this movie. In this movie people really do matter.

      I think that "The Holiday" was one of the greatest classic romance/relationships films of all-time and it was also one of my favorite films of all-time. I also think that "The Holiday" has a lot of entertaining and enjoyable humor and drama including a really great and amazing cast and personal storylines as well.

      Great Romantic Comedy

      This movie takes place in the home of an L.A. film trailer owner and the home of an English journalist. Needless to say both women are unsuccessful with relationships and need a change of pace. By switching houses they find who they are and whats really important in life. Great story. Perfect to watch anytime of the year, not just the holidays!
