From the Director of What Women Want and Something's Gotta Give.
In Nancy Meyers' The Holiday, a romantic comedy from the director of Something's Gotta Give and What Women Want, two women trade homes only to find that a change of address can change their lives.

Iris (Kate Winslet) is in love with a man who is about to marry another woman. Across the globe, Amanda (Cameron Diaz), realizes the man she lives with has been unfaithful. Two women who have never met and live six thousand 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 (Jude Law), and Iris, with inspiration provided by legendary screenwriter Arthur (Eli Wallach), mends her heart when she meets film composer Miles (Jack Black).

Editor's Note
The Brits and the Yanks join forces in this romantic Christmas comedy set in England and L.A. Kate Winslet is a British journalist caught in a cycle of unrequited love with her coworker, Jasper (Rufus Sewell). Jasper does his best to lead her on, and when he announces his engagement to another woman in the office, Winslet is crushed. Meanwhile, across the pond, Cameron Diaz is a high-strung movie-trailer editor who has just ended her relationship with Ethan (Edward Burns) after he accuses her of being emotionally unavailable. And, oh yes, he has sort of been sleeping with his receptionist.

Brokenhearted, Diaz and Winslet make contact through a vacation website and agree to swap homes for two weeks to escape their disastrous personal lives. Winslet takes off for Diaz's lavish L.A. pad, while Diaz arrives at Winslet's picturesque cottage right outside London. When Winslet's brother Graham (Jude Law) knocks at the door one night looking for his sister, he instead encounters Diaz, and sparks soon fly--despite the fact that they both know she won't be in town for long. Winslet, for her part, is busy mending her heart in sunny California, befriending Diaz's elderly neighbor, and making the acquaintance of film composer Miles (Jack Black). But her healing is abruptly interrupted when Jasper suddenly appears on her doorstep, having flown halfway round the world to make sure he still has her under his spell. Miles apart, Winslet and Diaz find themselves at the crux of all rom-com crises: how to follow your heart, while still being true to yourself. While THE HOLIDAY's whimsical plot can at times feels stretched thinner than Diaz's legs, fans of the genre will no doubt find Winslet's thespian charms, Law's dimples, and the high-fashion wardrobes quite enough to give them their chick-flick fix.

The Holiday is no vacation. Sloppy writing, an overindulgent editor, and poor casting have taken an intriguing premise and transformed it into an uneven mess. The movie follows the lives of two women at Christmastime who trade houses. One story, while neither surprising nor groundbreaking, is moderately entertaining. The other feels like filler and ends up consuming about 45 minutes of the film's bloated 135-minute running time. The theory, I suppose, is that viewers get two romances for the price of one. In reality, one isn't always the loneliest number - sometimes it's the best fit...The best that can be said about The Holiday is that it's the best of 2006's crop of Christmas-themes movies, but that's not high praise considering that the other contenders are The Santa Clause 3 and Deck the Halls. - James Berardinelli

Reel.com 9 of 10
"I like corny," says the heroine of The Holiday toward the end of the movie. "I'm looking for corny." If she weren't in it, The Holiday would probably be her favorite film of all time, given that it's the most unabashedly corny and sentimental Hollywood romance in years. It isn't enough for writer/director Nancy Meyers to provide two parallel love stories--she heaps on every gooey device in the book, from cute pets to cute kids to cute old people. It's the kind of sugary movie that will send jaded viewers running for their toothbrushes, but on its own terms, it's kind of perfect. The sheer volume of intense emotional content has a cumulative effect that will easily win over anyone whose heart and mind are open to it. - Jim Hemphill
