While Netflix has a whole list of new holiday films we’ve seen this season, Holidate was at the top of my list! Technically, this film can be watched on every holiday, including Halloween. So if you’re tired of traditional Halloween movies, check out Holidate on Netflix, which is now available.
Followed by bad divorces, Sloan (Emma Roberts) and Jackson (Luke Bracey) both have the same problem: the holidays. Either they’re always alone at the children’s table, or they have awkward dates.
After the painful Christmas holidays, Sloan and Jackson went to the mall to bring back their unwanted gifts and barely-dressed persimmons – you know, the usual activities after Christmas. It’s when they don’t have a romantic encounter with sweet people connected because of their embarrassing and disappointing Christmas. They made an agreement to protect each other from future unwanted holidays and made a pact to be friends in New York.
They are (in the beginning) strictly speaking friends, meet during the holidays after the holidays all year round – St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Cinco de Mayo, 4. July… You got it. But in the end, the lines are blurred. Surprise, surprise.
They may be the perfect holiday team to replace each other and fill a void for every party next year, but can (and should) they accelerate?
Festivalfilm for the whole year
When the feast begins at Christmas, it goes from public holiday to public holiday all year round. Like the Irving Berlin Holiday Inn (even though it’s much more modern), this film was originally focused on Christmas, but in fact you can watch it all year round. Hey, hey, hey, hey!
Extensive links to popular culture
From Carrie to the Black Panthers there are many references to pop culture to pay attention to. There is even a fantastic Dirty Dance attempt, which goes (initially) well.
Question of age – can a couple just be friends?
Of course, you may think you know what’s going to happen in this story, but you could have a few surprises. Holidays aren’t the first film to address the question of whether a couple can only be friends, but even if it’s not a new subject, it doesn’t make the story any less entertaining (especially if you count the holidays).
Now look at the Holiday section – and again in this festive season! It’s funny, embarrassing and cute (all at once) and keeps you laughing throughout the movie. Emma Roberts and Luke Bracey form an astonishing pair of canvases, in which humour, sarcasm and charm are shared equally. Besides, Bracy’s Australian accent doesn’t hurt. Christine Chenoweth also gives a funny performance as the strange and embarrassing aunt Susan.
But is Netflix suitable for children?
No, not really. An MA TV rating has a lot of swear words and adult humor, so watch this movie without children.
