The HolidayI really love this movie.It's just really sweet. The writing is great, not overly cutesy (ok, it's a little cutesy) and there are some true actors in it. My favourite element of the storyline is the friendship between Iris (Kate Winslet) and Arthur Abbot, a retired elderly screen-writer from the Golden Age of Hollywood. I also love love love seeing Jack Black playing a nice guy instead of a jerk/idiot. Miles is a fantastically hilarious character with a real heart and real emotions. He's "the goofy guy" who is actually really smart and caring. When does that ever happen in films?
Ok, so I am not ashamed to admit that one of my favourite parts of this film is this guy.
I give this film, despite the performances of the other actors: Great Writing, Bad Acting.
