The Holiday

The Holiday

The Holiday won't be getting too many nominations at academy award time but then that's not really its purpose.

If you're looking for a relaxing entertaining, thoughtless film then "The Holiday" is 2hr 20min well spent.

It isn't too sweet (barely) and thankfully it isn't riddled with the farcical misunderstandings which seem to be the bread and butter of romantic comedies.

It is straight forward and I like that. Convoluted forced problems don't interest me. Unfortunately it doesn't quite reach the level of being a lightweight character drama either.

In summary I was happy to pay to see it on the big screen but wouldn't pay to see it a second time.
