The Holiday


Watched this over the weekend.It was the first movie I watched with my wife(still getting used to saying that) and have to say it was a great choice.Funny, sexy and warm.Just the type of movie that you want to watch with the someone special in your life.

As per the formula not all of the movie is plausible but still makes for a great show.Have to admit that after seeing the two home's available for house-swap I dwelled on the idea.But doubt that would ever be the case in reality.

Have to admit that the two lil girls in the movie are most definitely the cutest most adorable kids I have seen on celluloid in ages.Makes you want your own like crazy till you get brought down to reality by some pellet gun toting brat.

Both the female and male leads are refreshing and a pleasure to watch.Enjoyed Jack Black's performance off the caring good guy with bad women luck.

So if you stuck for a movie to take the wife to or trying to score some points with a new date this a sure bet.

A few memorable quotes as per the norm:

Arthur Abbott: I like this Hugo Boss, he cuts a nice suit!

Iris: I understand feeling as small and as insignificant as humanly possible. And how it can actually ache in places you didn't know you had inside you. And it doesn't matter how many new haircuts you get, or gyms you join, or how many glasses of Chardonnay you drink with your girlfriends... you still go to bed every night going over every detail and wonder what you did wrong or how you could have misunderstood. and how in the hell for that brief moment you could think that you were that happy. And sometimes you can even convince yourself that he'll see the light and show up at your door. And after all that, however long all that may be, you'll go somewhere new. And you'll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again. And little pieces of your soul will finally come back. And all that fuzzy stuff, those years of your life that you wasted, that will eventually begin to fade.
Miles: Well f**k, you need this more then I do.

Iris: Because you're hoping you're wrong. And every time she does something that tells you she's no good, you ignore it. And every time she comes through and surprises you, she wins you over, and you lose that argument with yourself, that she's not for you.
Miles: Exactly, and on top of that there's the old standby, I can't believe a girl like that would actually be with a guy like me.

Graham: Long distance relationships can work, you know.
Amanda: Really? I can't make one work when I live in the same house with someone.

Going to call it quits for now.Hope to be back in blog land soon.
