    Even with a wild card like Black desperately retooling his lines, there's nothing authentic or personal about The Holiday--it's as chilling as heart-warmers get.
  2. 20
    This overproduced romantic comedy doesn't even qualify as fluff; it's flat, featureless plastic.

    This movie was a true love story. it appealed to a real audience and it touched me in place that most others fail to reach.

    This film includes a witty script by director Nancy Meyers and good performances by Kate Winslet, Jude Law, and Cameron Diaz. But the movie is stolen by the unlikely duo of Jack Black and 91-year-old Eli Wallach. Full Review »

    I liked this movie a lot. It made me laugh and also clap my hands. Very good movie indeed.
