Movie Review: The Holiday

My Rating: 4Stars

This evening I saw the movie “The Holiday” at UA Cinema, Whampoa.

The cast chosen for this movie were just perfect, Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Jack Black and Eli Wallach. The characters fit the stereotypes of what majority of people have for these actors. Some may say it was to extreme, but to say anymore will give away the movie.

All I can say is, if you’re a women in a relationship, a women in a bad relationship, a women in the end of a relationship… oh well… if you are a women you should go see this movie. If you are a sensitive man; even if it is self proclaimed, you should go see this movie also.

If you have seen my previous review, then you will too be surprised that I give this movie a higher penguin rating than “Casino Royale“. It is mainly due to this movie’s entertainment factor and Casino Royale was very disappointing to me.

  1. I don’t quite agree with you that this movie has perfect casting. I love the movie but its biggest flaw is casting Jack Black as the leading man, one can’t take him seriously in romance. Winslet’s love affair with him is not convincing as there seems to be more chemistry between her and Eli Wallach than between her and Black.
