2.0 out of 5 stars A boring romantic-comedy that's not funny, December 24, 2006
Cameron Diaz is her usual adorable self, Kate Winslet is a bore, Jack Black is a disaster, and Jude Law is the best actor of the bunch in this film.

Even Cameron Diaz's looks can't save this one, it's a boring tale of three people having relationship problems that come to a head around the holidays. Diaz and Winslet's characters house swap to get away from their romantic woes, and you can predict the outcome early on.

Winslet's character gets involved with an old Hollywood screenwriter and his old fogey friends, which slows the film down and bored me to death.

If you watch television, you have seen the the only two scenes which are mildly funny from the trailers hawking the film. The one thing I really detest about viewing movies being billed as comedies is anticipating funny scenes that never materialize, which is what 'The Holiday' constantly achieves, it makes you feel let down and disappointed too many times.
