Review: The Holiday

The only old-fashioned romantic comedy showing this coming weeks, so I had nowhere else to turn to. Like most rom-coms these days, stories tend to feel contrived, but since we have a double story going on, it doubles that feeling. But Nancy Meyers, while being a relative new-comer when it comes to directing, has been a writer far longer, and knows the trade. Hence, even with all the predictabilities, she lifts it just high enough not to disappoint. You’ll get all the charms that can fly off the screen, and it’s sweet all the way along. Good acting (mostly Kate Winslet) and an interesting score (Hans Zimmer) round out the rest. So, luckily, there’s no harm that this is the only romantic comedy choice this holiday season.7.
