The Wash Post totes just slammed “The Holiday” that new movie that is opening this weekend. This is the one where Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet switch apartments for a holiday to get away from everything and they become mixed up with Jude Law and Jack Black respectively. Can it really be this awful?
“In the annals of generic people-standing-around-talking movies, “The Holiday” achieves a new low. A cinematic widget product from expert extruder Nancy Meyers (“What Women Want,” “Something’s Gotta Give”), this overproduced romantic comedy doesn’t even qualify as fluff; it’s flat, featureless plastic.”
I must find out.
