Queen Latifah is so much fun in her movies and this is no exception. One of my personal favorites. The movie brings happiness to life and has a Cinderella ending. What more could anyone ask!!! :)

This is a very pleasant little light-hearted movie. I love Queen Latifah (with a name like that and the attitude to match, I imagine most people either love or hate her) and she did not disappoint in this movie. LL Cool J is easy on the eyes and an OK actor. Timothy Hutton is excellent as the overly ambitious, power-hungry, BS mongering Matthew Kragen. Alicia Witt was surprisingly good in this film. I am not usually overly impressed with her performance in other movies.

Gerard Depardieu, however, was not good in his role as a chef. His acting was very, very sub par for his otherwise prodigious talent. I usually love him in his other movies. In this one, he just made me cringe.

The storyline was lightweight, but feel good. There are some pretty good laughs in there too. A nice easy movie to watch. Nothing heavy here.

The cinematography was beautiful, as were the wardrobes and the sets. Since seeing this movie, I have an overwhelming urge to visit Prague, which looks like an entirely bewitching, enchanting city. And I don't even like most cities....!

All in all, I have kept my copy because I intend to watch this movie around Christmastime every year. I recommend it for a lazy winter weekend watch. A fun movie for the whole family, especially visually.

I loved it!! Too bad there isn't a 100+ star option:(

"Georgia Byrd (Queen Latifah) works in retail. On the side, she's in the church choir, and afterwards goes home and cooks while watching Emeril on TV. One day at work, she bumps her head and needs a cat scan. From the results of the CAT scan, the doctor then tells Georgia that she has a brain tumor and has three weeks to live. Upset and distraught, she goes home to look through her "Book of Possibilities" book (a book with all the goals she wants to achieve). Thinking it's all over, she takes a trip to Czechoslovakia. While there, Georgia has the time of her life. She bungee jumps, snowboards, and so much more. During her stay, people around her start wondering who exactly she is.

...a feel good movie, with a bit of a love story to it. Last Holiday is a smart comedy that will leave you thinking about life. Latifah is exquisite and also very funny. Two thumbs way up!

Last Holiday

"Queen Latifah stars in this endearing movie that forces the audience to question their own lives. Queen is told that she only has a few weeks to live, and she finds out that she has to learn a hard lesson about living life instead of waiting for the perfect time for things to happen. While this movie does force the viewer to think about life, there are some very funny moments. LL Cool J was surprisingly good in this film, and the rest of the supporting cast was wonderful.

If You Have a Heart, See "Last Holiday"
Rudy Palma | NJ | 01/31/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I just about never review motion pictures, but I absolutely had to say something about "Last Holiday." I have gone to see it three times, and I plan on seeing it at least once more before it is out of theatres, and I hope it comes out on DVD fairly soon.

Queen Latifah's performance is sensational as always, and she is perfectly cast. The supporting ensemble is also just brilliant.

Sure, this isn't Oscar material, and this won't break any box office record either, but this movie is the ultimate in life-affirming. It is true that the whole notion of the plot is rather cinematically cliched, but Latifah gets around this without a trace of sap on her fingers.

As the plot reaches its climax, it's hard to hold back the tears, at least if you're the sensitive type, and if you are not at least deeply moved you probably need to see a shrink.

You will indeed see that life is not about regrets; go out and fulfill your dreams and enjoy the life you have, because any day could be your last. The character of Georgia Byrd epitomizes this to pure perfection, and, as I said, it is profoundly moving.

And don't think you won't have a barrel of laughs, either. Go see this movie while you can."
