5.0 out of 5 stars A truly wonderful, heartwarming, meaningful film July 24 2006
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but, honestly, I don't see how anyone could give Last Holiday anything less than five stars. This is a good, good movie through and through. The story, the casting, and the settings are just dead-on, but it's Queen Latifah who really makes this movie special. Who would have thought, all those years ago, that this young female rapper would someday absolutely light up the screen and connect with audiences in a way few actresses can match? She's simply wonderful in the role of Georgia Byrd, a character that so many of us can identify with. Georgia is "just folks," a kind and caring woman who has spent her whole life waiting for something big to happen, too shy and afraid to do anything more than maintain a scrapbook of "possibilities" -- places she wants to go, things she wants to do, and the man she wants to be with. Just as she is beginning to come to terms with her suddenly thirty-something life, Fate comes up and punches her right in the mouth. Not only is she dying of a rare disease, she only has three or four weeks to live.

Rather than lie down and wait for death, Georgia decides to live her last days to the fullest. Cashing in all of her assets, she jets off to the spectacular Grandhotel Pupp in Karlovy Vary (in the Czech Republic), where she lives like a queen in the Presidential Suite, dines in the restaurant of the famous Chef Didier (Gerard Depardieu), and embraces activities such as snowboarding and base jumping. Almost immediately, she becomes the talk of the town. Hotel staff marvel at such an obviously wealthy woman actually treating them with kindness and respect, while some of the other guests try to find out who she is and (in the case of a few) what she is up to.

Condition of DVD was poor. Skipping and sound was sometimes poor. I expected better quality which I have received before. Not satisfied with this copy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Last Holiday DVD May 31 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The DVD overall was in very good condition, and is of great viewing quality, but the case it came in wasn't the greatest.It had stickers that I couldn't get off, and the case itself seems kind of cheap. But that was the only issue I have.
