Love Actually

Widescreen Edition - MPN: MFR025192329326VG
Product Details
Description
Written and directed by Richard Curtis and produced by Duncan Kenworthy (the team behind NOTTING HILL and FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL) this zingy British comedy weaves a vivid crazy quilt of interlocking or unrelated vignettes all dealing with the subject of love over the Christmas holidays in London. The big name cast includes Hugh Grant as a prime minister who falls for a staff member, Liam Neeson as a widower counseling his son in the ways of romance, Laura Linney as a shy woman working up the nerve to ask out a coworker, Emma Thompson and Alan Rickman as a couple faced with infidelity, and Colin Firth as a writer who falls for his Portuguese maid. Additionally, a pair of porn film stand-ins bond on the set, an artist fantasizes about his friend's wife; and perhaps funniest of all, an aging rock star (Bill Nighy) tries for his comeback with a Christmas novelty song. The likes of Billy Bob Thornton, Rowan Atkinson and Denise Richards turn in cameos, helping making this film a throwback to those all-star, multi-plotted comedies of the 1960s and '70s, such as IT'S A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD (1963), NASHVILLE (1975), and CALIFORNIA SUITE (1978). With Curtis' comedic credentials and the star wattage of pros like Grant, Neeson and Thompson, LOVE, ACTUALLY is a laugh-packed affair, with more than a few tears to be shed along the way, and a startling amount of bawdy raunchiness.

A sugary tale overstuffed with too many stories. Still, the cast charms.

4 Star Review   By member Beelzebub - Dec 6, 2004   

I rented it because of the cast. I love Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Hugh Grant, etc. I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the film. It is a little bit scattershot sometimes, but there's an overall kind of genius in how the director has interwoven characters and plot lines. I even went back to watch it again and got even more out the subtleties of the story.

5 Star Review   By member freebird_0128 - Jun 16, 2004   

One of the most charming films I've seen in quite a while. Featuring an all-star British cast that includes Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson and may others, it's a romantic comedy centered around Christmas. Delightful and hilarious, it explores the complicated relationships of many couples from new love to old love to impossible love. But in the end, as the title suggests, it's all about love. It's undeniably sweet and actually honest. It leaves you with a smile and a warm spot in your heart.

Love Actually was a cute movie, and I think it was quite hilarious at times. The beginning was especially funny.

5 Star Review   By member scorpjen1121 - May 5, 2004   

Strengths: makes you laugh, cry, get chills, everything a romantic comedy should do and more.

Weakness: somepeople don't like that theres about 9 stories going on at once, i like it tho- and its neat how they're all connected in some way.

WOW!! One of the best movies i have ever seen!! Had a great cast and crew and i look forward to watching this movie over and over again!!

Quite surprised by this. Got dragged along, thought I would be bored to death for 2 hours, but it's a pretty half decent film a bit superficial maybe but still left me with a nice cosy feeling.
