Formula For Fun

Our first library loan was a DVD, Last Holiday starring Queen Latifah. I liked her in Taxi (the movie), so I had hopes that this movie would also be good and I was not disappointed.

This is a formula movie that goes exactly according to plan. But Queen Latifah plays her part in such an enchanting way that she turns what could have been a dull formula film into a sweet and delightful story. I give this film four out of five stars. Put this one in your Netflix queue. You'll be glad you did.

(IMPORTANT WARNING FOR MOCOS -- SPOILER WARNING for the rest of you -- The plot involves a woman who is diagnosed with a condition that will be fatal if she doesn't get an expensive treatment that it turns out her insurance won't cover. But the film doesn't dwell on it.  I got sad for a moment, but it was OK.)
