    I caught Holidays over the weekend. I think my opinion falls in line with most of the comments here. Not very enjoyable, but not a complete waste of time. I thought the Jesus-Bunny was pretty cool, semi creepy. Can't say I've ever seen a Jesus Bunny giving birth to little chicks through his hand wounds. Kinda fucky. And Kevin Smiths Halloween segment, I thought was really funny. It was stupid, poorly acted, but Kevin Smiths give-a-fuck meter has been broke for a while now, and it's obvious he pretty much wants to film outrageously fucky shit just for shits n giggles.

    To comment on Kevin Smith in general....... his stuff is hit or miss for me. Clerks was MEH, but I understand the love for it. I absolutely LOVED Zack and Miri Make a Porno. Red State kinda sucked but I've only watched it once, drunk....forget a lot of parts but I definitely didn't enjoy it. Maybe a revisit soon is necessary. And Tusk was a fucking riot, I loved it.

    I thought this anthology was one of the weakest I've seen. The only good segment (Father's Day) had a copout ending and though there were some good ideas (the Easter segment) all the stories fell flat.

    A recent anthology that I enjoyed a lot more was Southbound.

    oh definitely........ Southbound was leaps and bounds better than Holidays. Pun intended.

    I'm a sucker for anthologies, but I'll most likely never watch Holidays again.
