Reviews

The characters are falling in love, falling out of love, some are with right people, some are with the wrong people, some are looking to have an affair, some are in the period of mourning; a capsule summary of reality. Love begins and love ends. They flirt a lot. They are all flirting with love. At all ages and social levels, love is the theme. Romantic love and brotherly love is the hotchpotch through out the movie. Most of the movie is filmed in London, during Christmas and the characters all ended up at Heathrow airport a very uplifting note.

I'm fed up with the number of reviewers here and elsewhere who have dismissed this wonderful film on the grounds that it's too sweet, that the stories are saccharin, and so on. Does nobody get it? The sweet sections are fantasies. Colin the 'love god' goes to Milwaukee in search of beautiful women, and that's exactly what he gets, in bucketfuls. But there aren't many romances like this. Take the painful scenes where Laura Linney, embarking on a physical affair with the love of her life has to answer the phone twice to her mentally ill brother, ruining the atmosphere and ending the new romance; and watch the later scene in which she is with her deeply disturbed, who is violent. Her love for her brother outweighs any of the other stories. Or what about Emma Thompson's discovery that her husband is planning to embark on an affair coupled with her strength in getting through it for the sake of her children. More love that is far from saccharin. Or Colin Firth's romance with his Portuguese housekeeper, following his wife's affair with his brother. The skill with which their story is told even though, until the climax, they don't speak a word of each other's language. There are many sweet things in the film, but only dyed-in-the-wool cynics should give a moment's thought to this. It is one of my favourite films, however many times I watch, because it's balance is perfect.

I've just read through all of the reviews on here and so many people have started theirs with the words "I don't normally like romantic comedies" or "I don't like Hugh Grant films". Then why are they watching it?

Too many people are watching this expecting too much. It's a film, not a documentary. In the words of Colin Firth, "It's not bloody Shakespeare".

Yes, Hugh Grant plays his standard character, (bumbling Englishman who you just want to give a slap), but that's what he plays. You don't find him doing a Tarantino do you?

Richard Curtis did a radio interview a few months ago and was asked what his plans for fuure projects was and he said that there were only so many ways he could get Hugh to mumble. He gets the joke, Hugh Grant is a parody of Hugh Grant.

Yes, Richard Curtis overdoes the sugar sweetness by a huge bucketload. That's what he does with his movies, split personalities. With Blackadder you got Curtis the cynic, with movies you get Curtis the incurable romantic.

People have said that the characters were unbelievable, that you don't find all these types of people in London. Go to the middle of London, it's full of them. Curtis has captured middle class England perfectly. It just might not be so recognizable to all of us at around the minimum wage mark.

I think a lot of people who have given this bad reviews really haven't watched it properly, hell most of them didn't even get the names and events right. Personally I think it is a great film to watch when you want to be uplifted, if you can't keep up with more than one storyline then go buy the Teletubbies. If you want a film that shows Britain for the majority then watch Shaun of the Dead, if you want Britain at its worst then watch Scum.

I recently watched "Love Actually" for the second time, some dozen years after viewing it on cinema release, and was prompted to write a review as a sort of personal retrospective.
This turned out to be quite difficult, because "Love Actually" is really a collection of almost a dozen "mini" films, woven together by an over-arching theme of seeking to examine various aspects of love. It's a film which seems to polarise opinion. Some regard it as the perfect frothy, bubbly festive season entertainment, others as a trite, treacly mess, and it's hard to reconcile the differences.
Central to the problem, I think, is the self indulgence of writer and first time director Richard Curtis. Curtis's earlier "Four Weddings" script showed a much more measured and disciplined approach to the treatment of multi-layered storytelling. In the case of "Love Actually", over-elaboration proves his downfall; there's simply too much going on to enable a reasonable grip to be kept on the narrative as it unfolds, and the finished product is extremely uneven, an uncomfortable blend of the pleasing and the dreadful.
Some episodes do work really well, when Curtis restrains the silliness and enables some fine individual performances to come to the fore. Colin Firth is really engaging as a writer who falls head over heels for his Portuguese housekeeper with whom he can barely communicate. Bill Nighy is hilarious as an ageing rocker trying to resurrect his career with a terrible Christmas single, and Gregor Fisher is affecting as his long-suffering manager. Rowan Atkinson's all too brief contribution as an eerily calm sales assistant is comedy gold. The splendid Emma Thompson is genuinely moving as the two-timed spouse of philandering Alan Rickman.

To quote just 3 other reviewers this film is "can't really fault it" "just gorgeous" "classic nonsense".

A heart warming, laugh-out-loud, tear jerker (it's got it all!), this movie never fails to cheer me up!
