OK, do NOT read any further if you don't want to be spoiled for this film. Have you stopped reading? Well, come on. It's a seriously good film. Trust me, you do NOT want to be spoiled for this one.
OK, so I assume you've seen the film.
I enjoyed it. However, I also thought there were a few things wrong with it.
Did we REALLY need the story about the couple who met as stand ins on a porno? I think there were enough other strong stories without shoving that weak, gratuitous one in, don't you?
Also, the one about the young man who goes to America for sex was a little silly, as well. I did like that one, but Ares said he could have done without it.
Hugh Grant as Prime Minister of the UK was a bit of a stretch (although bloody funny).
Just a few minor quibbles. On the whole it was a lovely, jumbly delight. Emma Thompson, Liam Neeson, and Alan Rickman all put in stella performances, as usual.
My favourite story was the one with Jamie and his housekeeper. Simple, clever and very heart felt. Subtitles will never be the same again.
Anyone else see this film? What did you think?
Who did you think I would be? - HA! - well you got me instead.
i'm the one who voted for 'love actually' in lila's best comedy/musical thread
a wildfire born of frustration
Just saw came back from seeing it. I enjoyed it much more than i thought i would. I loved the Hugh Grant story (just hilariously funny!), the Colin Firth story (what Argy said - simple, clever and heart-felt) and the little boy story (so swwweeeeetttt and cuuute!!).
All in all, i give it a... 8/10
