Suspend belief and get the tissues out,
This review is from: The Holiday [DVD]  (DVD)
I watch this movie every time it is on TV - it seems to run in a continuous loop along with other movies (I love The Wedding Date). You really do have to suspend belief as there is no way you could swap homes in 24 hours and do everything that happens within the two weeks of the holiday. It all falls into place too easily but once you accept that it isn't real (doh!) you can fall into the myth of the story. Cameron Diaz is disgustingly gorgeous looking (if a bit too slim) and Kate Winslet is so lovingly practical (get the sick bag out!). I never really liked Jude Law until I watched this but he is rather nice. Jack Black (that's his name isn't it? Shows how much attention I pay) is just as cute as Jude Law.......in his own way so the pairing of the two couples is well cast and well played.
Not a substitute for a 'serious' film but switch off and enjoy make believe.
