Ahhh, what’s better than a good Christmas film, eh? I also managed to get through a whole film without actually hating Jude Law for once, wahey! There is nothing new or extraordinary about this film, it’s not even that Christmassy, it’s like Ronseal, does what it says on the tin. But my, what a good tin of Ronseal it was.
Two beautiful women, Amanda Woods (Cameron Diaz) and Iris Simpkins (Kate Winslet) both find themselves at the end of failed relationships just before Christmas. Amanda decides to take a two week vacation and surfs the internet. She meets Iris online, and they agree to swap their homes for the holidays. Amanda lives in Los Angeles and Iris lives in the countryside of Surrey, England. Even though they now have a change of scenery and want no contact with men, they are both still depressed and lonely. But things are about to change when Iris’ brother Graham (Jude Law) drops by Iris’ house and meets Amanda. On the other side of the world, Iris meets Miles (Jack Black) a film composer. Romance is in the air and sparks are about to fly.
