This movie is an awesome movie of a love story just in time for an Holiday event. You can also watch this anytime, as it is a Christmas movie, but it does not go so over board in Christmas. I see that this movie says its a 2013 movie, but I believe it is a 2012, or a 2011 version of this movie. I enjoy how they made Billy act in this movie. He is such a funny character in this movie. A nice romance, comedy of four couples who find love.
Love, Love, Love this movie!!!!! It's one of my favourite movies, I never get tired of watching it! And it does definitely not need to be christmas to watch it! :D
@spotflare Nice call on Wild Target. Thanks.
now that was a decent christmas film.. in fact, i can't remember one as good.. and bill nighy just slays me.. if you like him you must see WILD TARGET.
My Favorite Xmas movie. Must watch IMO.
great movie loved every second of it. 10/10!
:fresh: I just got back from seeing Love Actually! YAY! What a bloody hilarious and well worth seeing movie. Weird, though that it's in limited release. The theatre that was showing it only had one showing and it was PACKED!

First off, ladies it is loaded with beautiful and funny men. The only times I wasn't laughing, I was smiling bigger than I can tell you!!!! It's totally not a chick flick though. I'm horrid at reviews because when it comes to them, my vocabulary consists of "good" and "highly recommend". I'm now known for details unless asked. So, ask away if you like!
I had a thoroughly good time at this Holiday flick. It's sweet, but in a cheesecake way, not a saccharine way - rich and a little heavy, but delicious.

Brought to mind Robert Altman's character-over-plot construction method, and the stellar cast all turned up ready to play. Actually, what it reminded me of most was an underrated gem of a film called PLAYING BY HEART (damn it, that reminds me I loaned that DVD out and it never came back...).

Katie, I'll forgive you if you pirate a copy of this movie. There are so many delicious traditional Englishmen in it, I just wanted to go out and shag a limey by the end.

Although Hugh Grant steals most of the laughs and involuntary giggles in the film, the real standout performances are from Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson as an aging couple going through a difficult period in their marriage. Thompson is, as always, stunning and in a league of her own. It's great she had Rickman to play off of - a lesser actor would have looked like a fool beside her.

And I'll add that my grumpy manly-man husband liked it too, so there's hope for you guys fearing you'll be dragged by your girlfriend to this one.
* 1/2 LOVE ACTUALLY - Ugh; what a mess ! There are 15 different stories in this
movie, none of which are developed properly, with some of them popping in so
infrequently that you've forgotten all about them by the next time that you see them.
This wouldn't matter as much if it was funny in general, but it isn't; there's maybe 3
or 4 chuckles at best. With painfully unfunny events, unnecessary and boring sub-
plots and an anti-American thread in it, this has to be one of the biggest disappoint-
ments of the season. A talented cast is wasted; nobody is on screen long enough to
be the star of it, but the following people appear: Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Emma
Thompson, Alan Rickman, Colin Firth, Keira Knightley. If you simply must see this,
at least wait until it's on video so you don't waste too much money on it. _______________________________________________________________
Love Actually *** 1/2

Richard Curtis opens this film up with his thesis statement, that "love actually is all around us" and uses the next couple of hours to prove it to the audience. He uses several stories with a large ensemble of characters to do this, all of which share a common theme, plus a slight (if not obvious) connection to one another.

The stories are all interesting, but some are definitely better than others. Hugh Grant's gives the best performance as the Prime Minister; the story between Laura Linney's Sarah and Rodrigo Santoro's Karl was the most interesting and the story about Liam Neeson's boy is probably the most powerful. Other stories come off drab or contrived, such as Colin Firth's romance with his Portuguese housekeeper and Alan Rickman's tempation against his marriage to Emma Thompson, yet they do all restate the thesis in their own way.

I found the film to be very entertaining and touching, but it could have wowed me.
