Last Holiday is not one of my "usual" Christmas movies, but since my sister owned it, I figured I'd watch it. This is a very sweet story of a woman (Queen Latifah) who, when she finds out she only have three weeks to live, starts living life to the fullest. She quits her retail job, goes away to a European ski resort, and spends her money on gambling, spa treatments, great food and clothes, and in the meantime touches the lives of the people she meets with her down-to-earth attitude. Queen Latifah has never played a character I didn't like: I swear she really is all of the women she plays in movies. And don't worry: the movie does have a happy ending!
