John & Becky’s Movie Review Of The Holiday

Holiday PosterBecky and I went to see The Holiday on opening night in Highlands Ranch at the AMC movie theaters. The Fandango website at The Holiday describes the movie as follows:

Two women on opposite sides of the globe, Amanda Woods (Cameron Diaz) and Iris Simpkins (Kate Winslet) find themselves in a similar predicament. Desperate for a change of scenery, the two women meet on the internet and swap houses for the Christmas holiday discovering that a change of address really can change your life.”

The Review
The Holiday was a cute romantic comedy the most guys won’t like that much and most women will probably love.  It has some good laughs and it was easy to bond with the characters and feel empathy for their pathetic romantic situations, but it’s not a “Sleepless in Seattle” by any stretch.  

There are much better movies that are out this Holiday season than The Holiday, but it’s definitely a good date movie.

It’s a bit of a mixed bag for most people, you will either really like this movie or probably think it was a waste of time.  Overall, we thought it wasn’t great and wasn’t that bad either, which means it will probably be in rental stores soon. 

Becky liked it much better than I did and thought it was worth the trip where I would probably wait for the rental rack, unless you’re looking for a good date movie.
