Episode 81: The Holiday (2006)

theholidayFor the second episode pairing romantic comedies, we turn to the work of writer/ director Nancy Meyers and her 2006 film "The Holiday." Starring Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Jack Black, and Eli Wallach, this film follows Amanda (Diaz) and Iris (Winslet) as they both flee from their homes for the holiday and exchange houses, one traveling to Surrey, England, the other to Los Angeles, California. Amanda meets Iris's brother Graham (Law) and the sparks fly immediately, while Iris meets film score composer Miles (Black) as well as retired Hollywood screenwriting legend Arthur (Wallach), who helps her find her way back to strength and sanity, and encourages the burgeoning romance with Miles! While not a universal top pick by our Geeks and Git, it's a fun watch, and with a film score by Hans Zimmer, along with a couple of neat cameos, it's a fun movie to get swept away by. And it also ends at New Year's Eve, just like our previous film! Plus, the Geeks and Git reveal which top Hollywood director will provide their next pairing!
