Richard Curtis (writer of 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' and 'Notting Hill') turns his hand to directing with this British rom-com. Eight stories involving the love lives of more than a dozen characters are brought together over one Christmas and climax on Christmas Eve; from the recent widower Daniel (Liam Neeson), the failing marriage of Karen (Emma Thompson) and Harry (Alan Rickman), the aging rocker (Bill Nighy) who just wants to get paid (and laid if possible), through to the Prime Minister (Hugh Grant) falling for a member of Number 10's staff (Martine McCutcheon). The film was another box-office success for the filmmakers and stars a host of British talent and celebrities.
With no fewer than eight couples vying for our attention, Love Actually is like the London Marathon of romantic comedies, and everybody wins. Having mastered the genre as the writer of Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, and Bridget Jones's Diary, it appears that first-time director Richard Curtis is just like his screenplays: he just wants to be loved, and he'll go to absurdly appealing lengths to win our affection. With Love Actually, Curtis orchestrates a minor miracle of romantic choreography, guiding a brilliant cast of stars and newcomers as they careen toward love and holiday cheer in London, among them the Prime Minister (Hugh Grant) who's smitten with his caterer (Martine McCutcheon); a widower (Liam Neeson) whose young son nurses the ultimate schoolboy crush; a writer (Colin Firth) who falls for his Portuguese housekeeper; a devoted wife and mother (Emma Thompson) coping with her potentially unfaithful husband (Alan Rickman); and a lovelorn American (Laura Linney) who's desperately attracted to a colleague. There's more--too much more--as Curtis wraps his Christmas gift with enough happy endings to sweeten a dozen other movies. That he pulls it off so entertainingly is undeniably impressive; that he does it so shamelessly suggests that his writing fares better with other, less ingratiating directors. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

This film on paper is a horrible saccharine yawn fest. But somehow out of the mangled mess something great is wrangled, by incredibly talented people at the top of their game. Its as if after an infinite number of romantic comedies the law of chance decided that this is THE ONE, this is one perfect romantic comedy that will forever define the genre. Go on buy it! Watch it. Watch it again, every single year at Christmas for the end of time.
I'm going to watch it just before Christmas stroking my big manly beard and my sharp tooth dog. And I will be crying and laughing, and my wife will be looking at me as if I was having a breakdown. And you know what I don't care, because for the brief*** 2 hours 16 I will be transported to a place of heart ache and joy, and I always, always come out of it feeling better.
*this isn't true.
**warning over exposure to Bill Nighy will make you want to laugh in a Nighy fashion
*** okay its quite long
There are so many people involved in the plot that it's actually hard to count. But the main five relationships or stories within are those: Hugh Grant, as the Prime Minister of UK, falls in love with one of his employee - a lovely girl from Wandsworth, London ( supposedly the doggy end ). Second story is about the writter played by Colin Firth. His tragic and hurtful split up with his girlfriend at the beginning get's him to the bottom. He decides to head uphills to his "crib", where he meet lovely Portugese girl, who is there to help him with tidying and cleaning.
The third story starts with the wedding and sort of happily ever after, however, the usual triangle crops up soon. The forth one is about 11-year old boy, who's experiencing a "total agony" of being in love with the school Goddess from America. His father just lost his wife and had a speech at her funeral, so the pain is very close to him at those times. Nevertheless, he keeps the dream of meeting Claudia Schiffer alive, along with helping his song with the masterplan of attracting his dream girl.
And the last "main" story is around two young male friends, living together dreaming about girlfriends. Until one of them called Colin decide to go to US, with the vision of easy girls due to his cute British accent. There is a "sort of" happy ending for most of characters in the movie, even if there is some drama experienced along the way. Very quality movie worth watching it many, many times.
So, yes, the film is a bit over the top, a bit exaggerated, but it still works perfectly, has the perfect balance of humour and seriousness, and is one that I would see over and over again.
