Product Description

Product Description

Romantic comedy starring Jude Law, Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet and Jack Black. Iris (Winslet) is in love with a man who is about to marry another woman. Across the globe, Amanda (Diaz) realises the man she lives with has been unfaithful. Two women who have never met and live 6000 miles apart, find themselves in the exact same place. They meet online at a home exchange website and impulsively switch homes for the holiday. Iris moves into Amanda's L.A. house in sunny California as Amanda arrives in the snow-covered English countryside. Shortly after arriving at their destinations, both women find the last thing either wants or expects: a new romance. Amanda is charmed by Iris' handsome brother Graham (Law) and Iris, with inspiration provided by legendary screenwriter Arthur (Eri Wallach), mends her heart when she meets film composer Miles (Black).

From Amazon.co.uk

As a pleasant dose of holiday cheer, The Holiday is a lovable love story with all the Christmas trimmings. In the capable hands of writer-director Nancy Meyers (making her first romantic comedy since Something's Gotta Give), it all begins when two successful yet unhappy women connect through a home-swapping website, and decide to trade houses for the Christmas holiday in a mutual effort to forget their man troubles. Iris (Kate Winslet) is a London-based journalist who lives in a picture-postcard cottage in Surrey, and Amanda (Cameron Diaz) owns a movie-trailer production company (leading her to cutely imagine most of her life as a "coming attraction") and lives in a posh mansion in Beverly Hills. Iris is heartbroken from unrequited love with a cad of a colleague (Rufus Sewell), and Amanda has just broken up with her cheating boyfriend (Edward Burns), so their home-swapping offers mutual downtime to reassess their love lives. This being a Nancy Meyers movie (where everything is fabulously decorated and romantic wish-fulfillment is virtually guaranteed), Amanda hooks up with Iris's charming brother Graham (Jude Law), and Iris is unexpectedly smitten with Miles (Jack Black), a super-nice film composer on the downside of a failing relationship. --Jeff Shannon

The Holiday is a great romantic comedy set in two locations; Surrey, England and L.A, USA. When Amanda (Cameron Diaz) breaks up with her cheating boyfriend, she decides she needs to get away from it all so she searches online for 'vaction hotspots'. While trawling through the internet, she comes across a House Exchange, where she meets Iris, a writer for the Times who also wants to get away from it all. The two decide to swap houses for two weeks, so Iris jets off to L.A while Amanda is stuck in Snowy Surrey (albeit fake snow, and rather recognisable fake snow at that).

The film is full of laughs, and all the actors involved put up a good performance. Despite half the movie being set in the snow, it manages to help you forget about your own snow trouble you're currently suffering through. For me personally though, I would have loved to have seen a movie just about Iris' time in L.A.

All in all a definite must have in your movie collection.

I cannot recomend this film enough! It's funny, its romanitc and an all round great film. The sound track has something that makes you want to play it all over again. Jude Law, Jack Black and Kate Winslet all gave brilliant performances, Cameron's however, lacked the certain pizaz that she ususally has. But over all, one cracking Christmas film!

Not your laugh-out-loud kind of romantic comedy but just a nice bit of entertainment for an evening. Definitely scores high on the feel-good factor and the acting is nicely balanced and natural too. Don't expect any shocking moments, courseness or crudity..... gentle enough for my mother to watch.

Not my usual kind of flick (mid-thirties male with an enthusiasm for thrillers) but rapidly turned into one of my favourites and found a place on the shelf with my Bourne DVDs.

I bought this looking for a nice romantic comedy and I wasn't disappointed. Whilst Cameron Diaz isnt the best actress, I really enjoyed this film. Nice twist with Jude Law's character & a happy ending for those of us looking for a bit of escapism.

I love this film!! It is a fantastic christmas chick flick movie. Actually...it doesn't even have to be christmas and my husband likes it too. It's funny, romantic, the odd couplings are wonderful & it always gets me in the mood for christmas. I actually bought this movie when it first came out but I lent it to someone..can't remember who & they won't own up so here I am buying it again as I can't go for 1 Christmas without it. Buy it & enjoy!! Merry Christmas.

A nice quirky story with the sort of one-liners and humour that has you chuckling because it reminds you so much of you, or someone you know; for me its one of those 'good-but' movies where it leaves you feeling that it doesn't quite hold its own...that 'something' seems to be missing (for me at least). Don't get me wrong, it IS a good movie, very watchable and enjoyable; the fitting in a small tub had me laughing so soooo much.... I've never seen a tub THAT small before! Its rare to see Jude Law in a light hearted comedy style movie, yet any concerns that initially sprang up were quashed quickly; after a few hours out on the tiles, he turns up on his sister's doorstep only to find a stranger answering the door....his 'tipsy, one over the eight' bit of acting is spot on! All in all there IS lots that the movie succeeds in especially in the humour department, and maybe it gets us to 'think' a little about the 'knock on' effects we all experience. Would I, or do I recommend it? With 4 stars plus a copy sitting in my dvd collection?? Of course I do

Great film. But...buy the DVD version, as the bluray version I bought for £7.70 is merely the DVD (£3) transferred to the dvd format. No rescanning of the negatives here, no digital noise reduction of old, nothing.

What you get is a 1080p print of a 576p source. Kinda pointless.

The film does smack of Bridget Jones in several places....(is this a bad thing?) However, despite the chocolate-box sentimentalism and some fake snow, there is a real nugget at its heart: how a girl gets 'gumption'. It's a little over-long - some of the scenes early on set in America with the Diaz character and her ex-boyfriend could easily be cut - but it's a good story, and highly entertaining. All the characters give dazzling performances - and it is genuinely heart-warming. I could easily watch it again and again - especially at Christmas.
