As fans of Super Mario Bros. are all freaking out about how amazing having Jack Black as Bowser will be, it seems like a great time to remember his best films. From School of Rock to his voice work in Kung Fu Panda, he’s become iconic within the world of cinema.
Still, it’s a movie often forgotten in his cinematography that’s coming to Netflix next month on October 1st. The film has incredibly mixed reviews, sporting a 49% Tomatometer rating but a solid 80% Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes. That movie is The Holiday.
“Dumped and depressed, English rose Iris agrees to swap homes with similarly unlucky in love Californian Amanda for a much-needed break. Iris finds herself in a palatial Hollywood mansion while Amanda navigates the lanes of a picture-perfect English village. Soon enough, both lovelorn ladies bump into local lads perfect for a romantic pick-me-up.”Synopsis from Google
The Holiday premiered in the United States back in December 2006 and managed to pull in $205 million worldwide at the box office. While it may not be Jack Black’s most memorable performance, it’s certainly worth checking out on Netflix when it arrives in October.
