Although they live on opposite sides of the globe, Amanda (Cameron Diaz) and Iris (Kate Winslet) have had equally disappointing experiences with men. 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).
Why Is The Holiday Rated PG-13?
The Holiday is rated PG-13 for sexual content and some strong language.
Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in The Holiday...
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.
