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.
