"Get ready for fun!" Leah Rozen, People with the "feel good movie of the year!" Clay Smith, Access Hollywood Love Actually is the ultimate romantic comedy from the makers of Bridget Jones's Diary and Notting Hill. Funny, irresistible and heartwarming, an all-star cast Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth and Emma Thompson, to name a few! will take you on a breathtaking tour of love's delightful twists and turns. Fall under the spell of Love Actually and share the laughs and charm again and again.
With no fewer than eight couples vying for our attention, Love Actually is like the Boston 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; 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
