Everybody knows The Holiday is one of the best Christmas movies of all time. Well, maybe not everybody. While attending the premiere of Jumanji: Next Level, Jack Black, who starred in The Holiday alongside Cameron Diaz, Jude Law and Kate Winslet, got asked what his favorite Christmas movie is. Not only did Black not say The Holiday, he totally forgot he was even in The Holiday.

Variety shared their LOL-worthy red carpet interview with Black on Twitter and it quickly went viral. “My favorite holiday film—it’s got to be Elf,” Black said when Christmas movies came up. “Jon Favreau and Will Ferrell just knocking it out of the park.”

This is perfectly fine answer, of course. Elf is also one of the most beloved holiday movies ever. The only problem with Black's answer is that he didn't list his own movie as his favorite. When the interviewer pointed out that he "could have said your own movie," Black had absolutely no idea what she was talking about. The confused look on his face makes the whole thing even more hilarious.

"Do I have a Christmas movie? Which one is mine?” Black asks the interviewer before quickly remembering. “Oh,The Holiday! Obviously,The Holiday! Nancy Meyers—genius.” Not only does Black clearly need a rewatch of the classic Christmas film, we all do. It's really that good! Genius, as some would say.
