I bet you thought it couldn't be done, right? Well, the snark potential they raise is of course enormous, and this take on The Holiday is hilarious (though the film itself sounds predictably dreadful).

Not since sitting through Love Actually have I wanted to put my foot through a cinema screen as much as I did watching this horribly contrived, abysmally acted, bloated and self-important romcom ... The Holiday finds Meyers once again peddling a curiously reactionary view of female self-empowerment that she seems to have cut-and-pasted into the script from a glossy women's magazine article. The result is a film that insists women are smart and independent and able to live without men, yet provides no evidence of this on screen, preferring instead to reduce them to emotionally unstable and histrionic mewling morons who blame the opposite sex for all their problems yet still seek their approval.
