The Holiday

The Holiday is definitely your typical, predictable, anti-climatic holiday movie. Cameron Diaz, a stressed out LA movie business exec, and Kate Winslet, an English heart-broken newspaper writer switch homes through an exchange website over a winter holiday in hopes of escaping their troubles as well as their exes. Little do they know that each will find love through family/friends of the other. There are some really funny lines, but overall this movie was made for the sake of allowing the viewer to escape his or her own family for 2 hours over the holidays. It should be called The Holiday From Your Own Family. Jude Law and Jack Black make the movie. They are each insatiable cute in their own way, and for a minute you forget the Jude is a serial cheater and a total sleaze in real life (even though horribly sexy). I also hate to be like this (no, I really don't but I have to say that), but Cameron Diaz is an absolutely horrendous actress in this role. It has been a long time since I watched a movie and could not stop thinking about how much a character looked like they were acting as opposed to it being effortless. If you are looking for a way to kill time on a chilly winter night, this movie is a good filler....but I wouldn't expect much more than that.
