... of the day December 9th 2006
Lyric of the Day – “Life is short, you’re capable.”
Gwen Stefani, “What You Waiting For”
Review of the Day – The Holiday
3 stars out of 4
*** The Holiday, Dir. Nancy Meyers; Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Jack Black, Jude Law, Rufus Sewell and Eli Wallach. So like we promised we saw the flick THE HOLIDAY on Friday night. To our surprise, it was a sold out show. Many guys were seemed to have been brought there by their girlfriends or the boyfriends. Thanks to clever casting and appealing performances from the whole cast, this movie is watchable and not that bad. As we mentioned yesterday, the story focuses on two women getting out of failed relationships. So, when their drastic times call for drastic measures, they decide to switch homes for the Holiday season. Everyone in Hollywood always says that it is impossible to have a good movie from a bad script; well THE HOLIDAY is the exception to that rule. This script is full of every cliché imaginable for a romantic comedy and what transcend this film are the great performances, especially Winslet and Wallach.
