10 Awesome Movies Like Sweet Home Alabama You Need To See

Iris (Kate Winslet) and Amanda (Cameron Diaz) are “The Holiday’s” unlucky-in-love duo, who both find themselves heartbroken for the holiday season on opposite sides of the Atlantic. Making the spontaneous decision to swap houses for the holidays, Iris heads to sunny Los Angeles, and Amanda finds herself in a quaint, snowy village in Surrey. While they explicitly stated that the reason for their respective trips was to avoid men at all costs, love soon finds them when Iris meets Amanda’s colleague, Miles (Jack Black), and Amanda is wooed by Iris’ handsome brother, Graham (Jude Law).

“Sweet Home Alabama” proves that home is where the heart is for Melanie, but “The Holiday” switches this idea up with both Amanda and Iris finding love far away from home when they’d given up all hope of ever finding happiness. Not only do they find love, but Iris and Amanda also learn something about themselves, with Amanda growing to become more in touch with her emotions again and Iris becoming more assertive so she won’t be walked over in relationships anymore.

It may be predictable and cheesy, but “The Holiday” is a perfect festive film with a joy that makes it a charming movie to watch whatever the season. Like “Sweet Home Alabama,” there can be reassurance in watching something that you know is going to have a happy ending, and “The Holiday” is one that feels like a warm, comforting hug.
