Christmas from Hell
Verified purchase
I watched this movie near Christmas because I was told it was "romantic". Boy was that the biggest lie I've heard in all of 2018 - and the year is almost over!
The plot lines are stereotypical garbage you'd find in a tabloid magazine - you know, The kind nobody buys at the Walmart checkout counter. There are 8 plots that take place in the span of two hours, leaving 15 minutes for each plot. You actually think you can make a 15 minute rom-com? Most crappy youtube videos are longer.
The stories are also depressing. Far from romantic, the movie hints at betrayal, cheating, abandonment, and shallow goals. It's representative of all of the worst imaginable parts of the most dysfunctional relationships.

If you think it's a good rom-com to watch with your girlfriend or wife, think again. It's trash.

Love in many different forms with many different outcomes
Verified purchase
Every time Love Actually comes on TV, I sit down and watch. Finally, I bought the video and will probably purchase the DVD because there are extras I'd like to see.
I find all the characters interesting but my favorites are Jamie (Colin Firth) and Aurelia (Lucia Moniz) though I'm not sure why, I just do.
Rowan Atkinson, as usual does his small bits, but they are very funny scene stealers.
Emma Thompson has an incredibly revealing and heart breaking scene in the bedroom. Alan Rickman as usual is wonderful.
Laura Linney plays a woman who gives too much and doesn't take what she wants and needs so desperately.
Andrew Lincoln is very gorgeous as a man living with a painful unrequited love. Keira Knightly and Chiwetelu Ejiofor are a newly wed couple. Hugh Grant underplays the PM of Great Britain with one of my favorite silly dance scenes. Liam Neeson is a bereaved step father tending to his young step son in a crisis called being in love. There are other stories and they all mesh and the movie flows well together.
Love in many different forms with many different outcomes and still worth watching 13 years later.

After all these years I made the mistake...
Verified purchase
of watching this HORRENDOUSLY cliched, depressing, OBVIOUS & dumb beyond comprehension film.
Watching Bill Nigh once again do his BROAD & over the top Keith Richard impression.
Watching Laura Linney ruin a wonderfully beautiful opportunity to have a night cap w/ a gorgeous guy, but instead bringing him immediately upstairs & then unbelievably ruining it by answering the phone not once, but twice.
Just so much cringing, so much embarrasment at the hideous writing.
Let's not forget the Brit cliches of Hugh Grant stammering & dancing ala Tom Cruise.
Just so so terrible & insulting on every possible level.
I will NEVER wrap my mind around this film being so popular & even considered a classic!
And believe me, I despise moral self righteousness, but so much depressing & painful crap with
everyone screwing up relationships with decent characters to be gross with whomever, it's just mind boggling.
It's not even over yet & I grabbed the computer to write this because I'm so repulsed by the idiocy of this nonsense.

The Perfect Romantic, Funny, Sad Movie
Verified purchase
I love this movie beyond all reason, and I always have. What's not to love? It has an all-star cast (all of whom do a stellar job making you love / hate their characters), including Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, the late, great Alan Rickman, and even The Walking Dead's Andrew Lincoln! Emma Thompson absolutely broke my heart in her portrayal of a betrayed wife. This special edition Blu-ray included a heart shaped ornament featuring a line from the movie...perfect for hanging on your Christmas tree! Seriously, if you haven't seen this movie yet, WATCH IT NOW. It will make you laugh and cry, it is perfect. And before you blow this off as just a "chick flick", you should know that I am a hardcore horror movie lover. So, if I love this movie, anyone will!

A girl kisses her husbands best friend because it’s “Christmas”
Verified purchase
The only reason why this is a Christmas movie, is because it takes place during Christmas. A movie about husbands cheating with their secretary, A girl kisses her husbands best friend because it’s “Christmas”, a guy goes to America strictly because American women are slutty, the secretary who gets reffered to as fat through the whole movie, the couple that fell for each other without speaking each other’s language.. ehh it was ok, but, still weird. The little boy chasing his crush, who is flying to another country, but he wants to tell her his feelings was cute. Uggghh now I own this terrible movie

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Love Actually!!!
Verified purchase
This is one of my top five favorite movies of all time, and it has been since I first saw it in the theater, now 16 years ago. It is wonderful!

Like seeing light split through a prism, we see various facets of loving relationships held up and highlighted through the multiple story lines that appear disparate in the beginning, but, of course, inevitably come together to form a central cord. We see love relationships in their beginning, middle, and final stages; love that is reciprocal and love that is unrequited; love that is genuine and love that is, perhaps, more lust than love; we see love among couples, friends, coworkers, and siblings; love that is fulfilling, and love that goes unfulfilled. I absolutely adore movies like this... movies where it's not necessarily black and white- The Good Guy vs. The Bad Guy... it's a whole lot of gray as many people navigate their way to, through, and away from love, and each person is doing their best as they are able to see it. While you may not find every character relatable, or even likeable, I do believe you'll find things that represent your experience, and the experiences of those you love, if you watch this wonderful movie.

Also, please note this movie is R and it earns it!! Although I hope my teenage son will watch it and enjoy it, I think we'll both enjoy it more if he waits until he's an adult and watches it without me being around! Also, if you've only seen Love Actually on the ABC Family Channel, then you haven't seen the movie in it's entirety since one couple is edited out completely when it airs there. Although their meet cute may be too hot for ABC Family to handle, their story line is one of my favorites, and it's hard for me to imagine the movie without it.

Highly recommended!!!

LOVE in all its forms from the normal to the supernormal, healing, reviving and you don't need to wait till Christmas!
Verified purchase
I seldom give feedback on movies or books because I think it is a personal thing, but this time I HAVE to. IF you ever feel like the world has gone to hell in a handbasket and any negative things or worries overwhelm you, WATCH THIS MOVIE! It is soooo much more than any Christmas movie, or love story, it is about all the love around us every day of the year that we overlook, take for granted, start questioning, mess up, start over, saying goodbye to some you have given your life to that passes away but holding tight to the love, parents loving their kids, kids loving their parents, it was a no holds bar movie that is a gift. Lots of BIG names and people that will surprise the heck out of you, good acting, maybe sickenly sweet and some big questions about relationships but basically and completely dedicated to love in all its many forms. It always felt like a combo gift from the UK, US & other countries after 9/11, but tonight I freely give you the suggestion to watch it, live it and see all the love that is still around us! As to it's rating, it just shows that sex isn't love and love isn't sex? It will go over the head of young kids, probably not bother any good kid watching it with a family (and with a teen, or young adult a little hit over the head it they focus too hard on 2 scene's). Granted, it isn't exactly realistic, but it is sooooo beautiful and nothing is beyond anyone when love (and GOD) are combined (again, not leaving out any other religion). It is LOVE ACTUALLY! If that isn't enough, go watch Mama Mia a week later and quit complaining about ABBA! I just shocked myself!

Don't watch with your kids! Scenes in here not in the TV version
Verified purchase
So...I missed the R rating on this thing! This has been a family favorite for years—but we've only seen it on TV. This version includes several scenes from some porno movie being filmed. Had NO idea and having that pop up while watching with my kids was uncomfortable at best. Crikey. Ruined this movie for us. Wish I hadn't bought it. Why on earth did the producers include this storyline in an otherwise really fun movie? Money down the drain. Can't watch it now. What a waste of money.
