I was watching the lifetime channel hoping to catch my favorite show, Wife Swap (one of my favorite shows). But, I came across the most charming movie ever.
The HolidayIt's a cute little story about two women exchanging their houses for the holidays, not knowing that this holiday would change their lives forever; Amanda (Cameron Diaz) & Iris Simpkins (Kate Winslet).
These women are very different, Amanda a workaholic, and somewhat unemotional, while Simpskins is a society column editor, hopelessly and romantically in love with a man that does not love her (awe).
In a desperate need to get away, from the ex. Amanda visits a house swap website, and soon decides to swap homes with Iris for two weeks.
Iris is living life in luxury, while Amanda is contemplating to returning home, until Iris brother Graham (Jude Law) comes over after a late night in a pub, the two ends up sleeping together ( I don't blame you! whoa Jude Law lol) The two eventually fall in love, but Amanda is scared they may go to far for something that is not promised. Their little love story ends well... with tears!
Meanwhile, Iris is trying to forget the on-and-off loser ex-boyfriend Jasper who is now in engaged (what a loser, but what a good looking loser lol). While Iris is enjoying her stay in L.A. Iris meets Miles, who there to pick up Amanda's ex-boyfriends belongings. They instantly have a connection.
While Iris strikes up a friendship with Arthur Abbott, who was a script writer in the Golden Age Of Hollywood. Everything is going great until Jasper shows up, and has no intention of making an honest women out of Iris (hmm). Eventually, Iris sees that he is a totally douche( lol) and let's him go. And starts up a relationship with Miles...
This was the most charming movie ever.... I watched this movie by accident. I honestly would have never went out to rent or buy this movie, since I think these type of films are so cliche, but this one was so cute, and had a very strong meaning behind it.
These two women are the everyday women, going through everyday women problems.
I enjoyed the film for the little cute moments. I call it a little cute story inside of a cute story.
Also Jude law ah, what a guy. Gosh. God bless he's parents lol. And Rufus Sewell ah hottie!... and surprising Jack Black was quite charming, I would have fallen in love with him also.
Emma Pritchard & Miffy Englefield were so adorable! ah
Nailah Loves it!
