This film is for life not just for Christmas!,
This review is from: Holiday [DVD] (DVD)
Although this is set at Christmas, don't think it's the usual touchy-feely festive nonsense; it isn't.
This is refreshingly feisty with Hepburn in particular on fine form and getting her teeth into a character that you don't usually find in films like this. Interestingly, this film was made during the period when Hepburn was deemed to be "box office poison". It's funny how her character is appealing to our 21st century eyes as it's not run of the mill and she plays it with a lot of charm and gusto.
Grant is good here, although clearly hasn't settled into his peerless screen persona that served him so well in later films (North by Northwest, Charade, Walk Don't Run).
Supporting characters are also a cut above the average.
If you're looking for something that's not sentimental drivel a fiver spent on Holiday is a fiver well spent.
