Perhaps the ultimate Christmas film and the pinnacle of British humour.
It's cheesy, it's stupidly cliché, but I can't help but enjoy it whenever I see it
My all-time favorite Christmas movie! I love it so much!
Great movie. I like the music, reminds me of the early 2000's :)
I liked it better on a rewatch. Such a stacked cast. Most of the stories are great. Andrew Lincoln's still is super creepy though.
I've loved this movie ever since seeing it in theaters and have watched every few Christmases since. Watched it last night for the first time in a few and I gotta say....it's showing its age. Not crazy about it anymore. Too many bummer stories and some other stuff just doesn't work as well as it used to. Honestly the only segments that didn't make me cringe or roll my eyes was the Bill Nighy one. That one still works for me.
This is the worst movie I have ever seen.
'Love Actually' isn't all that great, actually. Really cheesy and very predicable of how certain scenes are gonna turn play out. However, I guess that's the charm of it all, because I would consider this one of my guilty pleasures.
The film really captures the spirit of Christmas and Bill Nighy was fun to watch. Nighy has the best story in the movie, in my opinion. Andrew Lincoln, on the other hand, is creepy as hell in this movie. Even Lincoln himself admitted it.
Putting aside the creepiness, it's still the most Christmas of all Christmas movies you'll find.
This is one of the most under rated movie I have ever seen. A must watch for everyone. Just plug in your Earphone and let the movie run its course. At the end, you will feel refreshed.
Reds and whites and Christmas. Bright lights and snow. Quintessentially British. But not the American-version of London. Actual London.
Well, Richard Curtis is a legend for the British rom-com and say what you will about them being problematic and cliché but they are SO FEEL-GOOD AND EMOTIONAL! And Love Actually probably is the epitome of this with the interwoven loves and woes of the wonders of this British acting collective. It's expected for a film such as this with its large cast to become either over-complicated or under-developed but personally, I think the balance created is spot on.
Also written by Curtis, there's just enough to experience a Christmas in the life of each of these characters. With the amount of time lent to each, we can't expect too much in terms of development or depth but for the overarching story and experience, it's powerful in its result.
This film is the definition of perfectly cast. Emma Thompson having to deal with Rickman's ass. WHAT A WOMAN. Not to mention, the noughties bangers killed me and brought me back to life.
I live tweeted this as I watched it with my Mum. All in all it took nearly three hours to watch with all the pauses and the rewinds but my God this is an experience in itself, isn't it? Could we get a film for each of characters? Would we want that? What would it look like as an anthology rather than intertwined? I'm not sure if I care to know? It certainly wouldn't be half as emotionally enthralling.
7.5/10 really warm and beatiful with great directing and acting perfomances
One hell of a cast and they don't disappoint.
It is rare for a film of great acting to be married to a terrific script. Yet it is something else for it to speak right to the audience; not talk at them, not try to sell them a film. Let them experience the film. Let it wash over them little by little until there is nothing more of them left.
Perfect movie to get in to the holiday spirit. Pretty basic storylines but lovely and romantic nonetheless. Especially loved the story between Jamie and Aurelia.
Total chick flick that I would not want to watch again, ever!
It is a romantic comedy, if you like the genre you will actually love this movie
Wow, I discovered a unique layers of romanticism, that warmth and plush feeling.
This has some rather large amount of cheese and some flaws but I can't help but love it
