Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet are alone at Christmas so they participate in a house exchange where Kate goes to Los Angeles and Cameron goes to London.

Harmless, predictable fluff with pretty people. Cameron Diaz ends up in a tiny little house in the middle of nowhere outside of London but her house does come with Jude Law, so good deal for her! It is Kate Winslet’s brother in the movie. Poor Kate Winslet ends up with Jack Black. I mean, one gets Jude Law and the other gets Jack Black? Not fair!

The two couples go through the same problems of where they fall for each other, but they live in different countries so how can these relationships continue? They bring up decent problems and I think I spent most of the movie trying to figure out how it would work. Who could move and who would have to stay? The movie decides to not answer this question by leaving everything all vague with everyone partying. I felt it was a cop out.
