    wow, such impressive lists! we saw “the holiday” on new years day and really liked it too….paul even more than me. on new years eve we watched “last kiss” and didn’t like very much either. but i’m surprised there’s no * next to “the devil wears prada”…really, you didn’t enjoy it?? we rented it at dad’s place last week and both loved it! (we also rented “the march of the penguins” and loved it too!)…guess that one is from 2005 though.
