The Last Holiday is one of those movies that really has the potential to inspire people and I love those sorts of movie. At the very least, it’s a feel-good Christmas movie with a fun plot and great characters. This film has some of the best characters and a well-rounded story that really makes it a movie to last the ages as a classic holiday film. The comedy in it (while occasionally a little more out there then I like, but I like subtle humor the best) is well-placed and varied. And, well, honestly, you can’t go wrong with Queen Latifah.
The movie itself is about Georgia, a sales associate at a mall, whose lived her life with her head down, completely inhibited. Her book of possibilities gathers dust in a drawer in her kitchen. After a visit to the hospital Georgia is suddenly faced with a frightening diagnosis: a rare tumor of the brain. She only has three weeks left to live. Faced with her demise she decides to live her life to the fullest before the end.
