A movie talk...

No no no I won't be talking about 300 the epic everybody's talking about and I really don't know the reason of the big fuss it made I mean yea I've seen it and yea the direction of the movie was great but that’s it for me,,,no other comments on it…


Yea I always crave for the sweet romantic movies as any other woman dose…So what?



The Holiday is a romantic comedy. You know what that means. And if you don't like romantic comedies, don't go and see it. If you do, you will know what to expect. The mushy feelings creeping up on you. All those 'If Only . . .' emotions telling you there is a lovely place somewhere in which people fall in love and everything works out kinda perfect
I laughed. I cried. I awed. My jaw even dropped a couple of times . This movie is not only about heartbreak and heart ache, it's about finding yourself and appreciating the true things in life.
Iris (Kate Winslet) is in love with a man who is about to marry another
woman. Across the globe, Amanda (Cameron Diaz) realizes the man she lives with
has been unfaithful. Two women who have never met and live 6000 miles apart,
find themselves in the exact same place. They meet online at a home exchange
website and impulsively switch homes for the holiday. Iris moves into Amanda's
L.A. house in sunny California as Amanda arrives in the snow covered English
countryside. Shortly after arriving at their destinations, both women find the
last thing either wants or expects: a new romance. Amanda is charmed by Iris'
handsome brother Graham (Jude Law) and Iris, with inspiration provided by
legendary screenwriter Arthur, mends her heart when she meets film composer
Miles( jack black).

All of the characters are wonderfully developed especially Jude Laws he's a yummy girls
-the under-story of Jude's character adds an extra dimension to his character and really makes you love him even more.
Here's some Quotes of the movie:

Iris: I've found almost everything ever written about love
to be true. Shakespeare said "Journeys end in lovers meeting." What an
extraordinary thought. Personally, I have not experienced anything remotely
close to that, but I am more than willing to believe Shakespeare had. I suppose
I think about love more than anyone really should. I am constantly amazed by its
sheer power to alter and define our lives. It was Shakespeare who also said
"love is blind". Now that is something I know to be true. For some quite
inexplicably, love fades; for others love is simply lost. But then of course
love can also be found, even if just for the night. And then, there's another
kind of love: the cruelest kind. The one that almost kills its victims. Its
called unrequited love. Of that I am an expert. Most love stories are about
people who fall in love with each other. But what about the rest of us? What
about our stories, those of us who fall in love alone? We are the victims of the
one sided affair. We are the cursed of the loved ones. We are the unloved ones,
the walking wounded. The handicapped without the advantage of a great parking
space! Yes, you are looking at one such individual. And I have willingly loved
that man for over three miserable years! The absolute worst years of my life!
The worst Christmas', the worst Birthday's, New Years Eve's brought in by tears
and valium. These years that I have been in love have been the darkest days of
my life. All because I've been cursed by being in love with a man who does not
and will not love me back. Oh god, just the sight of him! Heart pounding! Throat
thickening! Absolutely can't swallow! All the usual
symptoms.

Amanda: Sex makes everything more
complicated. Even not having it because the not having it makes it
complicated.

Miles: Iris, if you were a melody...
I used only the good notes.

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.


I do recommend it highly especially For the romantic fool in all of us.
and for disparate girls This is one of the good movies that shows that there are good guys out there is this world.
