Format: DVD
This is truly the very best Romantic Comedy, if you can call it that, to come out in years. The actors have incredible chemistry and I was blown away by Camereron Diaz. I didn't think much of her until this movie. Of course, Jude Law is Jude Law, drop dead gorgeous! I don't cry in movies, like hardly ever, but this movie brought me to tears. I thought the story line about the old gentleman was superb. It could have been completely left out but it was included which brought heart and soul to the movie making it not just a love story but a story of how young and old can connect.

My husband thoroughly enoyed it as well so it isn't just a chick flick.

It has been a long time since I have enjoyed a movie as much as this where the characters are so real and everything is so believable. Without hesitation I give it five stars.

Yes, I know, a lot of people rate this movie not very highly - I on the other hand simply love it! It is simple and straight forward and incorporates love in so many different ways, your head starts spinning. And, according to this movie, the saying is right - love will find you when you least expect it.
The general storyline to touch but quickly - two women break up with their relevant beaus and feel the need to go somewhere over the Festive Season. So, they exchange their homes for two weeks - one being a mansion in Los Angeles, the other a cosy cottage in Surrey/England. And that's all there is to it.
A word to the various 'kinds of love' - there is the one-sided/taking advantage type, the being taken for granted, brotherly, caring for a kind older gentleman, friends ... and the romantic/real kind we all seek. These are all incorporated into this one movie and then some. Just look real close and you'll see them all.

Format: Blu-ray
Good movie, but the quality of the Blu-Ray leaves quite a bit to be desired. The fuzziness of the picture makes it look no better than an upscaled DVD. I remember watching this movie on an HD movie channel a few years back and the quality was definitely better. So I can only assume that it is a cheaply made Blu-Ray transfer.

This is the best romantic comedy to come out since sleepless in Seattle!!

I am a romantic comedy junkie to say the least, and have been dissappointed time after time with new releases...but this one is the exception to the rule :)

My husband and I saw this just before Christmas 2006,I was not expecting much but, I have to say that I was absolutely blown away. It is SOOO good! I have not seen such a good romantic comedy in a very long time.

The characters are easily relateable, Kate winslet is the sweetest (I wanted to be her!), and Jack Black is so charming and sweet! You will fall in LOVE with Jude Law (and I was not a big fan prior to seeing this, so that was surprising in itself!!)

In the spirit of When Harry met sally, Sleepless in seattle & Serendipity>> This movie is an absolute feel good experience, one that should not be missed!

GET THIS(...)YOU WILL LOVE IT!!

Format: DVD
This Movie is a much-needed romantic comedy that is magical, sexy and very authentic. This is not a chick-flick because it gives a sneak-peek from both the male and female perspective. Kate Winslet is Quenchingly Superb and very sexy. Kate at times, steals the show with her beauty and her natural acting ability. I was also very impressed with Cameron Diaz. This has got to be her best performance. Jude Law is spellbinding and Jack Black is very witty and tries to be a stud-muffin. (He succeeds at times) What makes this movie sizzle is the very cool way that it was written and the extraordinary chemistry with the principal actors. If you long for a great holiday Romantic in the realm of "As good as it gets" and its' sister flick; "Somethings got to give" You must pick this DVD and enjoy!! For True Romantics only!

Format: DVD
Three things I think after having watched, "The Holiday." The first is that Eli Wallach stole this romantic comedy. He plays Arthur Abbott, who in his younger days was an Oscar winning screenwriter and who is now a neighbor of Iris (Kate Winslet) now that the young English woman is living in the Hollywood mansion of Amanda (Cameron Diaz), who is now living in the little English cottage of Iris in Surrey. The two women have swapped homes this particular Christmas because Iris has discovered her ex-boyfriend is getting married and Amanda just needs to get away from her job making movie trailers. Since it is a romantic comedy both of the women meet men, with Amanda running into Iris' brother Graham (Jude Law), and Iris meeting Miles (Jack Black), a composer. The problem is that the most interesting and endearing relationship in the film is between Iris and Arthur. Jack Black is trying to play things straight here, something he had proven he can do already in "Shallow Hall" (when he discovers why Cadence is in the hospital), but he is totally wasted in this movie, even if Wallach is not stealing every scene he is in without breaking a sweat.

The second thing I am thinking is that there is a reason why Kate Winslet is the youngest actress to have earned five Oscar nominations for her work. I am not saying that this performance is worth of a nomination, but every time we had a scene of Cameron Diaz working so hard to act it was refreshing to get back to Winslet showing how it should be done. Again, the sparks between her and Wallach are the highpoint of this film. The third thing on my list is that they did not take advantage of the running gag of Amanda picturing a trailer of her sad and pathetic love life in her own mind.
