Really liked this movie, but i did notice a mistake, Cary Grant was not from Surrey, he was from the bristol area. Even so, the film was bery good

A nice movie - typical romantic comedy. A bit predictable, and maybe a bit sappy in parts. One to watch with the girls.

Enjoyable romantic story with the feel good factor and happy ending. My husband would probably have been bored to tears with it but it was a nice blob out chick flick.

The reviews have described this as a chick flick. And I'm no chick. But "The Holiday" was very much to my liking - an old-style, uncomplicated, feel-good romantic comedy starring favourites Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslett and Jude Law.
