The Holiday

Accidentally finding each other over the Internet on a home exchange site, the two agree to swap residences for the Christmas Holidays. But the change of address also causes a change of heart when the women meet new love interests (played by Jude Law and Jack Black). Get the movie review and more. »

Why Is The Holiday Rated PG-13?

There is no shortage of comedy and warm moments in this romance. Unfortunately, one storyline revolves around a casual sexual relationship. Although no sexual activity is seen (with the exception of a couple viewed in bed from the waist up, with the woman shown wearing a bra), it is often discussed. Profanities, crude sexual terms, a sexual expletive and a few terms of deity also punctuate the script. Social drinking is frequent, including characters that drink to relieve grief. Violence is limited to a jilted woman punching a man two times.
