loved Holiday
14 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A great rental that makes you feel warm inside. This deals with raw issues. Ving plays an excellent role and he is what caught my eye to continue watching it. He is much more handsome in real life. :) But overall, Alfre Woodard works it and the rest of the characters just adds color. it is funny and yet thought provoking. I watched the edited version on TV but would rent the actual copy to not have the edited scenes as i saw on BET. I don't remember this movie getting a lot of publicity but this movie would have the same type of popularity as "The Burning Bed". Don't take my word for it. Check it out for yourself and let me know what you think.
