It might be December now, but as far as I'm concered it is always The Holiday season. While there are actually countless reasons this film is a piece of cinematic excellence, here are 48 reasons I'd like to highlight.
Her hair! How many times have I brought a picture of this style to the hair dresser? Many. How many times have I left with it looking like that? Zero.
Ed Burns in his underwear
Ed Burns in his underwear. Brava writer/director Nancy Meyers.
Cameron's Fake Crying
Cameron's fake crying. No one in a movie has ever done a better job of trying to force themselves to tears.
Kate Winslet's real tears
Kate Winslet's real tears! Heartbreak is taking a toll on homegirl...
Because of Jasper Bloom. That's his name. There has never existed such a perfect, Brittish man name.
The best fake movie trailer of all time
The best fake movie trailer of all time. Starring Lindsay Lohan and James Franco? Can I pre-order my tickets now?
So that amazing trailer? It's edited by Kathryn Hahn and John Krasinski, only adding to it's awesomeness.
They Instant Message to set up this home exchange. SO 2006!
The most perfect email that has even been sent, and one I will be remembering for inevitable future use in my own life.
Can we just talk about all the glamorous jobs in this movie? Kate's publishing job, Cameron editing movie trailers, even Jack Black's composing!
Kate Winslet's cottage. Can I move in? Please?
Wasn't it a little hard for Cameron's character Amanda to leave that insanely gorgeous house in LA? Wowwee
Kate Jumps on the Bed
But don't worry, Kate Winslet's character Iris fits right in to her temporary home.
Cameron's eye mask
Yes, LA to London is a long flight but you know Amanda is traveling in style with that eye mask.
Walking to the House
Cam's character may have traveled in a little too much style... but her walk up the road to Kate's house in those heels is kind of the best.
Coziest movie all time.
No movie has ever been so COZY.
Cameron's fingerless gloves.
Those fingerless gloves Cameron wears inside? Need.
Cameron's sweaters. Each and every one of them.
Wine in the Store
Why wait to get back to the cottage? Cameron's Amanda gets a head start on the wine at the store.
Thank you, The Holiday, for this scene. Driving on the other side of the road is not the breeze it appears to be in other films.
The Killers' Mr. Brightside will never be the same.
Pools are always a fun amenity but do people get proper use out of them? Kate Winslet's character sure did.
Jack Black, all day. He is nothing short of amazing in this movie.
He removes an eyelash for Iris! Swoon!
I know for a fact that I have never been in a bed as comfortable as the one in the LA house seems to be.
And those blinds!! We all have too many remote controls but I will happily take one more for blinds like that.
Jude Law's tan
Jude Law is officially the tannest British person to ever exist.
But like...how adorable is he in this movie? Has he ever looked even remotely as hot? Best Jude Law character period.
Um, I sleep in sweatpants and an old t-shirt and this girl is rocking super soft cute pants and a sweater. Just on another level.
More cozy sweaters! They are never ending in this movie.
The word "complicated"
If you ever want to play a drinking game for this movie, take a shot every time the word "complicated" is used. Good luck!
The English countryside. Picturesque does not begin to describe it.
Cameron walks into lunch with Jude as Frou Frou's "Let Go" plays and we all get chills.
MR. NAPKIN HEAD
MR. NAPKIN HEAD
Sophie and Olivia
Sophia and Olivia, two little girls responsible for capturing all the hearts in the world.
Their tent. As cozy and decadent as either of the houses in England or LA.
Still, and forever in this movie: Jude Law.
The Berry Kiss.
The sweetest old man in a movie of all time, Arthur.
Kate and Arthur go for a swim
Kate's Iris and Arthur go for a swim in that beautiful pool.
Iris and Jack Black's Miles go to Blockbuster. This movie is like a time capsule!
The Chanukah Party
Forget fancy dinners and night clubs, all the fun is clearly happening at Iris' Chanukah party.
Technically this movie is an award-winning film because Arthur wins one in it.
This boob graze is dedicated to all of the other awkward boob grazes throughout time.
Sophie and Olivia
"You look like my Barbie"
Cameron runs back
So appropriate might not be the word, but Cameron's character Amanda slightly improved her running-through-the-snowy-countryside footwear for the trek back into Jude Law's arms.
Did I mention everything in this movie is the coziest of all time?
The NYE Party
If I were these characters, I wouldn't want to celebrate a new year because so far the last few weeks of the current one were pretty perfect.
