A neurotic Californian (Cameron Diaz) and a lovelorn Brit (Kate Winslet, again unfairly cast as the ”plain” one) impulsively swap homes for the holidays. Despite being on the mend after fizzled relationships, both overcome heartbreak (and jet lag) in record time. EXTRAS Writer-director Nancy Meyers discusses finding inspiration in classics like Nothing Sacred and Some Like It Hot (she sees shades of Carole Lombard in Diaz’s spastic performance); the ladies and costars Jack Black and Jude Law swap compliments in behind-the-scenes interviews.
