    An idiom isn't it?

    I've got an interesting saying " Have something in common with" I wonder whether it is an idiom. Could anyone clarify me? And if I give an example like : Joean has something in common with me; we both like playing the kite. Does it sound good English?

    Similar to 'have common interests', 'be like'.

    J. and I have a lot in common. We both like to fly a kite.
