    Queen Latifah gives a spectacular performance in this hugely enjoyable wish-fulfillment fantasy.
  2. It's too bad there's so little of LL Cool J as the secret object of Georgia's fantasies. He'd make a funny, nimble, sexy romantic lead with just a bit more screen time.

    The most surprisingly satisfying Hollywood comedy in ages.

    Watching Last Holiday, I kept waiting for the moment I could decree the movie truly terrible, the instant I could comfortably put my pen and notebook away and give it up for lost. But that moment never came, partly because I never fail to take pleasure in Latifah, and partly because I couldn't shake the eerie feeling that the movie I was watching was something of a ghost from another time.
  5. Director Wayne Wang stumbles through the awkward script without finding its shape or its tone, steering it toward maturity while the script falls back into slapstick sports gags and adolescent social politics.
  6. Queen Latifah's energy may be winning and her self-reliance message righteous, but Last Holiday grossly overextends her credit
  7. As witless as it is formulaic.

    I Loved This Movie! it is funny and a complete feel good movie. Queen Latifah gives her best performance. If you are depressed or down and I Loved This Movie! it is funny and a complete feel good movie. Queen Latifah gives her best performance. If you are depressed or down and out I highly recommend it. It is the best comedy I've seen that is both funny and after leaving the theater makes you fell good. It's worth every cent, go and see it, you won't regret it. Expand

    This review contains spoilers. This is a great movie. Very funny and is worth seeing. It makes you think what would you do if you knew? Queen Latifah and LL Cool J what a great couple they would make... Great cast. Collapse

    One of our most likable and ingratiating actresses, Queen Latifah gives a wonderful performance in this all too predictable comedy-drama. The One of our most likable and ingratiating actresses, Queen Latifah gives a wonderful performance in this all too predictable comedy-drama. The supporting cast is fine, the cinematography gorgeous, the editing crisp, and there is no faulting the production design. It's the story that is only mediocre. Expand
