I would love to be in “The Holiday” because this movie made me love the Christmas season. It made me see red as Christmas red, I began seeing green like Christmas green! I loved how things sparkle in the movie! I loved how they were all in love! I loved how I can smell the snow and how I seemed to get boozed as they drink their wine! I loved how happy it made me feel… It made me feel in love over and over and over again!

How tearjerking is the story from 1-10, ten being a cry fest:
It’s an eight. Not that I didn’t find it sad enough, it’s just that a lot of Grey’s Anatomy season enders have made me cry at levels 9 and 10.
There are lots of omissions in the film but of course, one can’t really fit everything in a movie. I thought it was a simple film only filled with all kinds of emotions necessary to call it complete.
I thought Patrick could have been made more irritating looking than Neville. He was kind of irksome in the book… I pictured him balding a bit, dry, and with a really weird jawline (I don’t know where I got that picture!) Other than Patrick, all characters fit my expectations.
What made me like the story is how everything’s verbal and particular. When you utter your thoughts, they are rather specific than doing so. Will being unable to move has to be especially elaborate with his words and it really made the film so amazing.
When watching these types of films, one has to put him/herself in place of the character instead of just watching. In doing so, you would know how Lou and Will exactly felt. Otherwise, you’re just a mere watcher and you won’t be able to empathize completely.
I love the book and the film!
I give it 3.5 stars.
One of the best movies I’ve seen lately. What can I say,
Denzel never fails me!
The pacing of the movie is fast yet the details were not forgotten. There was a serious tone in the movie but the silly puns were enough to balance Robert’s cryptic personality. I knew there was something more to him but that did not occur to me, at least not until Teddy insisted he’s somebody worth investigating as opposed to his giveaway biodata, a college educated hardware store staff or something.
I love this film, undoubtedly and I’d give it 5 stars.
I wish more films are like this.
