Everything that "The Philadelphia Story" was, "Holiday" wasn't._____ If the point of "Holiday's" story was to convince me that the incredibly rich were just a bunch of boring, stuffy, petty, sniveling, tantrum-throwing, one-dimensional goofs (Yeah. That about covers it), then, yes, it certainly achieved its intended goal quite successfully._____ "Holiday" is a perfect example of why I generally detest and often avoid watching "Screwball" comedies from the 1930s & 40s._____ Its story was so contrived and predictable and riddled with every "poor-little-rich-girl" cliche in the book that it made my skin absolutely crawl in complete revulsion to everything that it supposedly stood for._____ "Holiday" was the sort of film whose story sent out a very confused and mixed message about the super-wealthy set. It couldn't decide whether it wanted the audience to laugh at them, or to hate them, or to enviously desire to be just like them. - But, whatever - This film's story was "Screwball" comedy at its most detestable, in my opinion._____ And, besides all of that nonsense, I definitely thought that the apparent chemistry between its 2 big-name stars, Katharine Hepburn and Cary Grant, stank, big-time. And that's because there really was no chemistry between these 2, whatsoever.

Girl from the 0.01% meets a guy from the 99%. They fall in love and the question is, can two people from such different backgrounds compromise and come up with a way to happily live as a married couple. This is kind of appropriate theme so soon after Romney, a person from the 0.06% who tried to convince the 99% that he was in tune with their lives. This film kinda suggests that the 0.01% (or 0.06%) and the 99% are too far apart to have the same goals in life.
