The Last Holiday is a 2006 American comedy film starring Queen Latifah and LL Cool J. In the movie, Queen Latifah is Georgia Byrd, a shy Kragen’s Department Store employe in New Orlean, Louisiana. When Georgia is diagnosed with a terminal disease during the holiday season, one that should have her dead and gone before its end, she decides to pack up her things, break out her life savings, and live life to its fullest during her last few days. She loves good food and cooking, so she travels to Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic for a no-expenses-spared grand vacation at the deluxe Grand Hotel Pupp to eat, explore, and enjoy her way through her last holiday. She discovers a lot about herself during the holiday, including that she should have taken her chances with cute coworker Sean William (LL Cool J). Things are not always as they seem, however, providing for an unexpected twist that adds even more draw to the beautiful film. The Last Holiday opened to great critical acclaim, receiving nominations for a 2006 Black Movie Award, three 2006 Teen Choice Awards, a 2007 Image Award, and a 2007 Taurus Award.moreless

Metacritic Score

  • 75

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    A movie that takes advantage of the great good nature and warmth of Queen Latifah, and uses it to transform a creaky old formula into a comedy that is just plain lovable.

    Most successful when it is engaging, not uproarious. Glossy amusement is an updated remake of a well-regarded 1950 Brit comedy-drama starring Alec Guinness, improbably retrofitted ...

    As witless as it is formulaic.
