We were very pleasantly surprised by The Holiday because we almost didn't bother to watch all of it. There were some delightful scenes that raised it way above the usual light romance.
Cute chick flick. 4 stars.
Very cosy and mostly moved at a good pace.
I didn't like the start of the movie but soon into it, it improved and I enjoyed it.
This is why I hate rom coms
a nice and fluffy chick flick.
this movie also got stuck from about 55 mins on - spoilt an otherwise good chick flick
Chick flick. Cameron Diaz is very dumb blonde affectatious (if that's a word). Girls get guys in the end and all happy.
Really enjoyed this movie bit of a teary deary for me in parts but really enjoyed it.
very sweet, feel-good movie
Really enjoyed this. Fantastic film
Bit of a chick flick, loved it.
The best movie I have seen this year. Highly recomended
a lite hearted movie, seeing it once before, still enjoyed it agaain, light hearted romance, 2 girls swaping their homes looking for a new look at life,then meeting their new loves
I wasnt expecting much but I really enjoyed this movie from start to finish. If you want a good chick flick I recommend this one. Enjoy!
I'd watch this with a girlfriend or on my night off from the amn
Two very average love stories doesn't add up to a good movie. Phoned-in performances from Diaz, Black, Winslet and Law. Might have benefited from a serious trim at the editing stage.
Enjoyable chic flick, just what I like. Very enjoyable. Jude Law in glasses......WOW!
Easy to watch,enjoyable movie. No complaints about it whatsoever. Loved Jack Black and Cameron Diaz has always been one of my favourites.
My wife enjoyed it me on the other hand didn't.
girlie movie .. good watch though
Amazing movie. I loved it. I can watch it milion times.
Good movie. Heart warming and such. And this is the only movie I've ever seen with Jack Black in it that I actually stand. It's a curl up on the couch with a blanket movie.
This was quirky but I enjoyed it
Loved it. So totally predictable but very worth watching. How can you not fall in love with Jude Law in this movie.
Really enjoyed this movie- always a soft touch for a romantic movie
Good movie with a nice story line funny in places.
I thought this was very average. Only good thing about it was Jude Law was a good perve :-)
This movie is boring, boring, boring. Couldn't even bother watching it all the way through.
Surprisingly good Hollywood romance.
great acting, light hearted, fun film. romantic and easy to relate to.
hated it. rubbish. Jack Black should have stayed away from this one. Oh and did i mention it was rubbish?
Loved it, great chick flick, if you need cheering up
slow to get going. very predictable storyline.
A ponderous film that is about 20-30 minutes too long. The long conversation scenes between the two pairs of protagonists are arduous and, at times, uncomfortable. Kate Winslet is excellent while Cameron Diaz does a passable impression of Paris Hilton. The chemistry between the pairs, Law/Diaz and Black/Winslet just does not exist. The best aspect of the film is the relationship between Winslet's character and the old Hollywood screenwriter (Wallach).
Overall, this is a film which women will probably enjoy but overall there are only a few laughs to be had and a lot of sitting through lengthy, and mundane, conversations that seem to belond more in high school than the adult world.
Would not recommend it.
good movie !! nice story....will not mind it watching it again...
Predictable, boring stupid, dullest movie I have seen for a while...in five minutes Diaz is in bed with a man she has never seen before...Winslett at least has the nicety to not jump in so soon...BLEH!...what a waste of DVD time..forget this and go clean your TV screen instead..a 2/10 from me
Great chick flick, a little predictable
Interesting love story, surpassed expectations. A bit slow in places
Pure Chick Flick, along the lines of Bridget Jones. I think anyone would enjoy.
Enjoyable fanciful little love story. Not much substance, but if you just want light entertainment this movie is suitable. Kate Winslett
better than what i expected
After watching the trailer, I dismissed it as an average romatic comedy (not my favourite genre).
But the cast was great, the locations perfect, the music fantastic and the script solid if predictable.
I really quite enjoyed it and I'd have to put it down to the cast who nailed their roles.
Fantastic movie, Funny, Sweet wonderful. it is my fiances favorite romantic Movie
Thoroughly enjoyed this one. A little out there but enjoyed it anyway. Would recommend
Fantastic feel cood romantic comedy, if you loved love actually then this movie is for you
I really enjoyed this movie. Much better than I expected.
Very funny and good movie, have seen it before but had to order it again
A nice feel good movie. Was worried it would be too much of a chick flick. It was one but still really enjoyable.
Perve factor not too bad either :-)
Better than usual chick flick. Solid performances from the leads but Eli Wallach was the stand-out for his portayal of an elderly screenwriter with some well-crafted wisdom for Kate Winslet.
this movie was great I loved it, the story was good and it was funny, serious and the actors were wonderfull....I highly recommend this movie to those who like romance
Not often into this type of movie but really enjoyed this one. A little slow story-wise but the quality acting of the quality actors kept it mobile.
Great feel good movie....good story and funny I enjoyed every minute of it
I had many doubts but i actually suprised myself and found this movie enjoyable!! Cameron Diaz is a little over the top...but isn't she always? Kate Winslet beautiful and some good acting by the men. A nice watch.
Not what I expected but I so loved this movie. I wouldn't call it a chick fliic.
good chick flick, liked it alot
I didn't know much about this movie but I absolutely loved it. It was funny and touching and actually made me cry in parts. Very good.
A heart warming, feel good romance. Good performances all round by a stella cast.
Without Cameron Diaz and Kate WInslett to look at during this formulaic "romantic comedy" would have nothing to recommend it. Actually, even with them in it, it still doesn't......
The Holiday, a delightful romantic comedy about love, life and making a change.
Great romantic comedy. Cameron diaz excellent and jude law suitably gorgeous. A very enjoyable film.
out of all the dvds at quikflix theres got to be thousands better than this one.
Did I miss something? Awful; surprising as a good cast.
The movie looked dull but I hired it because I like Kate Winslett. What a surprise. It was excellent and I am not a fan of Dias.
I Loved this movie, genuine chick flick and a great one at that....highly recommend.
Very lightwieght movie - predictable and dreadful overacting by Cameron Diaz but given its triviality if you want a bit of diversion into the romantic wish fulfilment realms will lhelp to take you there.
An excellent movie. No sex scenes and no bad lanquage. Loved it.
This was a great movie would recommend its viewing.
Loved it.!!! Could not stop smiling. Excellent movie, very entertaining.
Ok guys call it a romantic chick flick if you must but this one keeps the hope alive that somewhere there is someone for all of us, and in particular when it is unexpected. All characters are loveable in their own different ways and its not such a bad thing to see people genuinely happy - it does have that rub-off effect.Watch it more than once.
A really sweet film. Jude Law is gorgeous and a fine actor. Winslet and Diaz were good also. Jack Black looked out of place being the fat, dumpy little shortarse that he is. I guess it's good to see an ordinary looking person in a lead role.
I love Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet, I love their work, they are very good actors, just seeing this movie makes you think are you happy with what you have or what you want.
A great feel good movie. Would watch this more than once.
This movie was too predictable and the performances by Jude Law and Jack Black I was disappointed with. I found it to be a big let down, it's meant to be a chick flick so ok for a lazy Sunday avo.
This is a really beautiful movie :)
It was a fun, light hearted, Saturday night chick flick.
My partner and I enjoyed this film. It was definitely considered a new "favourite". The multiple stories and unexpected plot elements made it a movie that is more than just a romantic comedy.
Not a big fan of these type of movies as always so unrealistic. However this movie turned out to be a real nice home alone movie night for me . I did enjoy the characters and even though it was really unrealistic ( who flys out to LA the next day and rents their home without checking any details??) it was a girly winner!!
Bit over the top, but actually quite ludicrously funny at times.
The movie was such an heart warming movie and i really enjoyed it. Watching more than once.
Loved it.. !! a lovely light enteraining srtory, about finding love when your not looking.
with actors like the ones in this movie they couldn't go wrong.
Most definitely a chick flick. My daughter and I both enjoyed this, but don't expect any surprises.
Heartwarming chick flick. Thoroughly enjoyed.
A truely romantic movie.. Some laughs and well worth watching . A chick flick
A great one for the ladies into romantic comedies. I enjoyed it.
loved this movie, didnt want it to end, had me crying and laughing at the same time.
Loved it - gave me lots of laughs and was a good easy movie to watch.
Great easy going fun movie. Great combination of the 4 main cast, the characters were very enjoyable to watch. Jack Black is a hoot! Great storyline concept of house swapping and the anything can happen in life if you give things a chance is always a winner.
Visually lovely locations. Enjoyable feel good flick.
This is one of those movies that can make you smile... even on the bluest of days... The music is spectacular... Hans Zimmer really delivers... The music in the movie fits so well, and is overwhelming. It really makes you "feel" the movie.
absolutely loved it....laughed, cried liked all the characters....very good feel good chick flick
I too, would have initially labelled this movie as a fantastic chick flick, however, my husband really liked this one as well! Really great storyline.
A wonderful feel good movie.
Loved it! the escapism, humour and romance of living in a foreign country and falling in love.
Loved this movie. Realy easy to watch.
Not my thing really, long and boring. Kinda feelgood, not terrible but was a bit of a test of endurance. I'd give it 2 1/2 if I could.
Fun and entertaining. All the actors are great and the plot even has a few surprises. Really enjoyed it.
I liked this.................
We could all use a trip like this one I feel
Very shallow and predictable. It said where it was going to go in the first 5 minutes and that's where it went with poor script and poor acting.
A funny jucsta position of two women from different worlds. Great acting!!
An excellent light hearted movie to refresh the soul
Not a bad story - a good "chick flick" but a bit long winded.
light, romantic and funny.
Feel good chick flix, however my significant other also enjoyed! Highly recommend
Great family Movie - a Sunday night special
Really excellent movie - we'd watch it again! Not many movies this enjoyable from start to finish.
Very solid effort. A little bit clunky at the beginning (especially some of the dialogue from Diaz) but it finds its feet and finishes strongly. While not earth shatteringly good or ground breaking it is definitely worthwhile viewing for fans of the genre.
Fantastic movie. Have watched it several times now. Great for those who love a truly romantic storyline with a shot of humor here and there.
Loved the movie and I thought all the actors were great in their roles. It's light-hearted and fun and thoroughly entertaining.
Watchable on a boring afternoon but very predictable and unrealistic. A feel-good movie.
Meh... not too bad for a chick flick. Highly unrealistic but watchable.
Lovely film, not to soppy, not to clichéd either. Even if you don't necessarily like Jack Black, you won't mind him in this as his character is rather normal. Almost on a par with Love Actually as it's based around the holiday season also, as is the title!
light hearted and fun - great friday night movie to wind down to after a full on week. yes, it's a bit of a chick flick but I think it would also appeal to some guys.
The holiday is a great movie. Jude Law, Kate Winslett, Jack Black and Cameron Diaz have be characterised in this funny and caring movie. It starts out like a chick flick and then quickly becomes something that everyone can relate to. My husband and I both really enjoyed this film.
Slow and contrived, sappy performances by Diaz and Black, but still somehow touching. A fluff piece that would be good for a rainy night in the house.
I really enjoyed this movie - a real chick flick though.
A good chick flick movie and worth watching for a girls night in.
Implausable Holliwood schmult
Good movie. Some parts, like both of them getting last minute airfares in the xmas holss, is a bit silly but hey. Good never-the-less. Great to see Jack Black in another different type of role.
A very surprising movie, this one had interesting and believable characters.
It was let down by a cheesy ending
Totally unbelievable and unrealistic but a well performed rom.com. Know what you're in for and you may enjoy it. I turned off the first go but persevered and with a bottle of red, I enjoyed it. Great to see Eli Wallach again.
was good movie and quite funny
Enjoyable from begining to end Surprised by Jack Black (he can act)
Sweet, enjoyable movie, better than I expected and better than Nancy Meyers' previous work.
Brilliant movies. Great chick flick with heaps of action and pathos. All performances very good. I would highly recommend it for a cosy Saturday night in.
Good cast flounders in this plodding romantic comedy.
Very enjoyable, makes you feel warm and fuzzy.
Awesome movie, all the actors in this were great. One of those movies I could watch over and over and never tire of it.
It was quite a nice, enjoyable movie.
Pretty good for a romantic dramedy. Gets 3 stars rather than 4 because I thought it was a bit long.
Perfect! Beautiful story and the ending is really lovely.
Loved this flick .. it exceeded my expectations .. it'll satisfy the romantics.
A lovely romantic girly movie.
This was an excellent feel good girly flick - great performances from all
A thoroughly enjoyable film with great performances by all. Everything you'd want in a feel good movie!
Worth watching... the storyline was a little unrealistic but still a good movie
great movie not as predictable as i thought, got a bit teary near the end
LOVE THIS KIND OF MOVIE! CRIED AND HAD A VERY GOOD TIME.
A heart warming show. Jude Law and Cameron Diaz were great. Definitely one that we had fun watching.
I loved this movie. It's a feel good movie with a good star cast. Good performances especially by Jude Law and Cameron Diaz. Their chemistry was quite good.
I loved it! Hubby enjoyed it also. Got to watch it twice...
Light weight chick flick, holds your interest but a bit corny and to contrived in parts. Jack Black is out of his depth in this type of comedy, other 3 solid acting. Fine if you want a light nights' entertainment.
One of the best movies I have seen for a long time.
Started off corny, but ended up almost in the cateogry of "Love Actually". Worth a watch definitely.
As always Cameron Diaz is a treat to watch - she makes acting seem easy.
Mindless Hollywood drivel. There's more nutrition in a Big Mac than in this film
As far as romantic comedies go, this was actually pretty good. Even my boyfriend enjoyed it.
I usually enjoy romantic comedies but this was predictable, droll and cliched. Very disappointing and the only redeeming feature were the times Jude Law was centre screen and only from an aesthetic veiwpoint . Diaz was painfully overstated in her role and Kate Winslet has been cast well beneath her great talent which is not on show here.
loved it, its a make you feel good inside.
Thoroughly enjoyable. Similar to Love Actually. Loved Cameron Diaz and Jude Law.
A little slow and characters weren't believable , just didn't seem right for their roles
very romantic, girls don't miss this one...
one of the best romance movies ive seen in a long time
Jack Black (Worst. Actor. Ever.)and Kate Winslet do not connect at all in this rom com, but there are a few sparks between Diaz and Jude Law.
A good romantic comedy. There are times when it gets over done (a subplot involving an ageing Hollywood writer was a little too sentimental for me) and times when it is too Hollywood to be believable. But it has enough substance to carry you through and the characters are just about solid enough to work. A good effort.
Pleasantly surprised. Some charm, imagination and reasonable acting (even with Cameron Diaz). Would've been better without predictable hollywood ending...
I Loved this movie!!!! I watched a few times.
Loved it was two romantic comedy movies in one
great soppy movie that touched the hearts of all teenage girls. they now know that there is love to be found
A nice easy to watch movie.
I'm not a big fan of Cameron Diaz, but she gave a great performance as did the rest of the cast. I really enjoyed this.
Not one for the guys; a nice rainy afternoon movie.
Very entertaining not to be missed!!
Its a chick flick. Camerons character is typical, another dittsy blond role for her. Kates character has more substance which balances this money. If its raining and you want to deal with the real world this is a good one to watch. Don't waste a sunny day watching this.
The Holiday was a funny,romantic and enjoyable movie.Great actors and cinematography,9/10
good feeling ,movie, thouroughly enjoyed it. Wish they made more like it instead of violence and sex
This is a great movie. It is very very funny and i really enjoyed it. Dont miss it.
great movie watched it twice
Thoughly enjoyed this movie. Not what I was expecting!!
Wasn't sure about this movie but I really enjoyed watching it. I can highly recommend this movie.
The movie is touching, but at the end of the day, it seems unrealistic.
