"Sometimes we can do without `modern cynicism`, and
there's nothing wrong with a film being `gently amusing`.
This is a charming feel-good film which makes no apologies for itself . OK . . .so life isn't like this . . .
but . . . it's a rom-com .. . what do you expect ?
The Holiday is a charming film, well-acted with a nice score from Hans Zimmer, and for a couple of hours
the world seems a better place to live in . . . . Let
the Time Out Critics have their Citizen Kane or
Rachel Getting Married to name two of the most
pretentious films ever made . . . . . and which most
people have never seen . . . It's films lilke ` The Holiday` and Notting Hill` which get the punters into
the cinemas . . . .Time Out's condescending review is
irritating . . . .This film is classy entertainment with
a lot of heart, . . . . .recommended!"
