GREENLIGHT #98: The Holiday (with "The Talented Mr. Ripley" and "My Best Friend's Wedding")

Ann and Les were delighted by time with The Holiday (2006.) As Les says "it stars four of cutest holiday decorations you ever saw," and they would be: Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, and Jack Black. It's a romantic comedy about two lovelorn career girls who swap house for a change of scenery and what-do-you-know cupid strikes both of them. If you're looking for sweet charm, Ann and Les say you'll find it here. You'll also find a wonderfully lovely performance by venerated actor Eli Wallach which is like the star on top of the tree. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommends The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999) the film that introduced Mr. Law to the moviegoing world. It also starred Matt Damon as the title character who manipulates his way throught the film wreaking havoc on the lives of the Law character and his girlfriend played by the lovely Gwyneth Paltrow. Ann sticks with romantic comedies and recommends the movie that introduced her to Ms. Diaz when she was paired against a character played by Julia Robertseven though Ms. Diaz's character never knew there was a contest - and there really wasn't. Ms. Roberts thinks she suddenly must marry her longtime friend played by Dermot Mulroney who's just announced he's getting married to the Diaz character. Roberts even goes as far as to enlist another one of her very best friends, played by Rupert Everett, as a new flame meant to open the eyes of her old flame. No dice. Iinstead she finds herself the maid of honor inMy Best Friend's Wedding (1997.)
