Synopsis
Two beautiful women, Amanda Woods (Cameron Diaz) and Iris Simpkins (Kate Winslet) both find themselves at the end of failed relationships just before Christmas. Amanda decides to take a two week vacation and surfs the internet. She meets Iris online, and they agree to swap their homes for the holidays. Amanda lives in Los Angeles and Iris lives in the countryside of Surrey, England. Even though they now have a change of scenery and want no contact with men, they are both still depressed and lonely. But things are about to change when Iris' brother Graham (Jude Law) drops by Iris' house and meets Amanda. On the other side of the world, Iris meets Miles (Jack Black) a film composer. Romance is in the air and sparks are about to fly. Douglas Young (the-movie-guy)

Reasons

1. Because you can't help but feel good when watching this movie.
2. Because any guy would be lucky to have a girl like Irish
3. Because her and Jack Black had amazing chemistry.
4. Because we all loved the "accidental boob graze."
5. Because her and Eli Wallach were magical on screen together.
6. Because Jasper didn't know what he was missing.
7. Because how can you not ship Iris & Miles.



Quotes

Iris: I have found almost everything ever written about love to be true. Shakespeare said, "Journeys end in lovers meeting." What an extraordinary thought.

Miles:
[Miles reaches over to grab something on the counter, his arm grazing Iris's chest] Okay, sorry about that. Boob graze.
[both Miles & Iris laughing]
Miles: That was accidental. Accidental boob graze. I'm sorry.
Iris: Changing subject.
Miles: Okay.


Iris: Arthur, I've been going to a therapist for three years and she's never explained anything to me that well. That was brilliant. Brutal, but brilliant.

Iris:
I'm having a Hannukah party.
Miles: Did you join a Temple since I last saw you?
