Synopsis


Love Actually
All of London is in love -- or longing to be -- in Four Weddings and a Funeral writer Richard Curtis' first directorial effort. Billed as "the ultimate romantic comedy," Love Actually involves more than a dozen main characters, each weaving his or her way into another's heart over the course of one particularly eventful Christmas. The seemingly perfect wedding of Juliet (Keira Knightley) and Peter (Chiwetel Ejiofor) brings many of the principals together, including heartsick best man Mark (Andrew Lincoln), who harbors a very unrequited crush on Juliet. There's also recent widower Daniel (Liam Neeson), trying to help his lonely stepson Sam (Thomas Sangster) express his true feelings to a classmate. Across town, devoted working mother Karen (Emma Thompson) tries to rekindle the passion of her husband, Harry (Alan Rickman), who secretly pines for a young colleague of his. In the same office, the lonely Sarah (Laura Linney) not-so-secretly pines for a man just a few desks away (Rodrigo Santoro), who returns her affections but may not be able to dissuade her neuroses. Providing the unofficial soundtrack for all of the couples is an aging rocker (Bill Nighy) who just wants to cash in and get laid -- but even he might find a meaningful relationship in the most unlikely of places. A working print of Love Actually premiered at the 2003 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi

    A new holiday classic

    I have watched this movie every year around the holidays and it never gets old. Whenever I have to recommend or give a movie as a gift it's this one. The interweaving story lines are truly amazing and never gets boring. Other movies have tried to duplicate Love Actually's feel good moments with minimal sometimes awful results(Valentines Day & New Years Eve I'm talking to you) this year I got this for a co worker as a secret Santa gift and she loved it, can't believe this movie is 10 years old?! Minus the nudity scene this is a good movie for most of the family and not just during the holidays. The extras scenes included tell the story of the schools principal and her spouse this was a great scene but in the end would have pulled the tone of the movie down, Kelly Clarksons song is truly amazing and is included here as well. I would suggest picking up the soundtrack to this movie because it's truly amazing.

    What's not to love about this movie?!!! I've seen it so many times and never get tired of it. Normally, it's so easy getting lost in a movie with so many characters/plots, that you ultimately don't care what happens. Director/writer Richard Curtis does such a great job keeping the flow of the movie throughout. A bit of trivia: the 2009 blu-ray release is the UK version; The 10th anniversary edition is the US version. The differences are minimal. Additionally, the 10th anniversary is a new digital restoration/transfer (you may/may not notice the difference). Should you buy it? If you don't already own the 2009 blu-ray, sure. If you have the 2009 release, but want both US & UK versions (for some reason), do it.

    A great Christmas collection of love stories

    This movie is underrated I think and really shows the many shades of love and relationships (and sometimes more lust than love I suppose) that can exist in the world and all of it is set to the backdrop of Christmastime in England which makes it even more entertaining to say the least. Not 100% family friendly as there are a few scenes of brief nudity so parents be warned if considering this for all ages family viewing. Not a good choice for that but for adult viewers its makes for a nice holiday movie.

    This movie has the gift of being many things at once: A fun and sweet holiday movie, a fun date movie, and a wonderful kaleidoscope of various takes on love and relationships and how we find them, live within them and sometimes tragically miss or leave them entirely. With a cast of amazing actors/actresses, Love Actually is simply a fun movie...NOTE: be warned though, if you have kids, there IS several nude scenes throughout the movie so parents should be careful screening this...

    The Ultimate Romantic Comedy

    Love, Actually is a triumphant, all-encompassing look at love in all its many forms. Romantic love, family love, unrequited love, and the pain of heartbreak are all explored in a funny, sometimes touching script brought to life by a superb cast of actors. There must be at least a dozen different threads to this story, with most of them touching each other in one way or another. And ultimately that's what this great film is all about - the touch of love.

    One of the best romantic-comedies of all time!

    This has to be one of the best movies ever. I enjoyed the six degrees of separation with all of the characters in the story and the tie in w/ different stages of love made it really great. I think all of us, at some point or another can relate to the different couples in the movie. I have watched this movie at least 10x and never tire of it. There are some scenes that aren't okay for young children/preteens. I usually have my kids turn their eyes or just fast forward during that scene.

    For the past couple years my wife and I will wrap presents and watch holiday movies on Netflix whilst enjoying an adult beverage. This movie is the first one we watch. It's got a great cast, it's funny, got a great plot and is an overall feel good movie. Unfortunately the grinches at Netflix removed it so I had to pick up a copy. I was surprised to see Best Buy had it, in store none the less.

    Great Movie

    It took me a long time before I watched this and regret every moment! This movie was very well done, very well designed. Love Actually explores all sorts of different types of love by following several different sets of people. Each set is connected to at least one other set. In the end, all the connections laid out for the viewer. Every actor does an excellent job and it's well worth the viewing. The only warning I have, is that the rating is appropriate. It is on my annual watch list from now on!
