The Holiday is a Christmas film many of us don’t realise how long it truly is until we begin watching it. Regardless, it’s a movie we still hold dear to our hearts and in the highest rankings of the best Christmas film ever. With a truly all star cast, The Holiday is a Christmas film that’ll never get old and will always leaving you wondering why Jack Black was ever in it. 16 years on since it first premiered, the cast have been up to a lot, whether it’s starring in Hollywood blockbusters or collecting awards of their roles in said blockbusters, there is a lot to be adored.
