Product Description

In Nancy Meyers' The Holiday, a romantic comedy from the director of Something's Gotta Give and What Women Want, two women trade homes only to find that a change of address can change their lives. Iris (Winslet) is in love with a man who is about to marry another woman. Across the globe, Amanda (Diaz), realizes the man she lives with has been unfaithful. Two women who have never met and live 6000 miles apart, find themselves in the exact same place. They meet online at a home exchange website and impulsively switch homes for the holiday. Iris moves into Amanda's L.A. house in sunny California as Amanda arrives in the snow covered English countryside. Shortly after arriving at their destinations, both women find the last thing either wants or expects: a new romance. Amanda is charmed by Iris' handsome brother Graham (Law) and Iris, with inspiration provided by legendary screenwriter Arthur (Wallach), mends her heart when she meets film composer Miles (Black).

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.

A very good, touching story of love, friendship, and learning. The entire family has watched this movie so many times that we had to replace it as we wore out the disc. It is a very well told story. No FX, just good acting, and the cinematography is superb. Winslet's monologue with Black on the couch on Christmas Eve is worth about $3,000 in psych couch time. Watching the 90 year old Eli Wallach was very touching. His lines were superb as was the delivery. Winslet was fabulous, everyone else was very good. Other people have given a run down of the scenarios so I will just leave it at; if you're looking for a good snuggle up movie then this one should do it.

What a wonderful "holiday" movie, it has a bit of everything in it - you laugh and you shed a tear.

Never a dull moment, and a great cast. One of my favorite Christmas movies that I have added to my collection and the price is right!! Thanks Amazon for the great pricing on your movies.

Nothing spectacular about the blu-ray but the movie was really good as a Christmas theme. Great acting decent story. Nice to see Black in a role like this instead of his more goofy roles. Pick this up for the holidays, pun intended, and enjoy.

Shucks, Pamela McK. already said it all for me -- this was a delight even to this old man, and definitely not just a "chick flick". Probably the funniest moments near the beginning involve the two gals exploring and getting used to their new environments, totally different from "back home"; quite a difference between a Hollywood mansion and a rural English farmhouse, after all. And they do so well at it that by mid-film the viewer's left with the possibility that one or both might want to make the home-swap permanent.

My favorite part was at the very end (my apologies if this is a spoiler in any way), when the two gals and their new lovers spend New Year's all together.

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.

Great movie, very enjoyable to watch and a fantastic story for the holidays. It's heart warming and if you are a romantic at heart, you can't help but love it. I will be watching it every holiday from now on.

This is a really cute, warm movie for the holiday season. Its takes place in both the UK and the US and is a great double love story. I particularly loved Cameron Diaz and her love-interest as a couple. Their story was lovely. But anything with Kate Winslet in it is also a winner, so go ahead and pick yourself up a copy!!
