Film: The Holiday
A Christmas-themed Romantic Comedy film from 2006.

In London, Iris (Kate Winslet) is a journalist who's been pining over her jerk ex Jasper for 3 years, and he just got engaged. Meanwhile, Amanda (Cameron Diaz), who makes film trailers in Los Angeles, has just thrown out her cheating boyfriend. They meet online and elect to swap homes for two weeks during Christmas vacation. Naturally, they meet men (and of course, men that are a part of the other woman's life). Amanda hooks up with Iris' brother (Jude Law) and Iris meets Amanda's composer (Jack Black) for her film trailer.

Not to be confused with Holiday, the 1938 movie starring Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant.
