Summary: One of the best and excellent movies I've ever watched. First of all I didn't expect that much from this movie, but after minutes flew by, it became more and more interesting. What a pure, sincere and lovely movie. It makes you think, it makes you smile and and it lets you cry.
Totally enjoyable romantic comedy that gets better with each viewing

Excerpt: I saw Love Actually when it opened in theaters. I was already a HUGE fan of Notting Hill, and so looked forward to writer Richard Curtis' next film, which turned out to be LA, and with him directing it, too.
Summary: Unashamedly, Love Actually is one of my favorite films. Contrived as it is, it is the perfect example of a successful ensemble film, carefully and neatly tying all of its storylines together into an explosion of pure holiday joy and love.
Excerpt: I have to admit, I watched this film under duress and in its favour, if you enjoyed Notting Hill and Bridget Jones, you'll enjoy this.

Some good lines: "Sam - But you know, the thing about romance is... people only get together right at the very end." an Jamie - "It's my favorite time of the day..driving you.
Summary: A fine Holiday treat, albeit sometimes a very dramatic one. Richard Curtis (of "Four Weddings and Funeral" fame) handles the interweaving stories quite well in my opinion. A nice comedy that will, in the end only uplift.
Excerpt: Got this today,and was blown away by the PQ&AQ.Can't praise it enough.One note though:Got only stereo,so can't comment on surround,but sounded great on my system.Picture quality-to me-was reference.
Summary: A horrible example of British film-making. It starts terribly and just rolls on downhill from there. This isn't love actually, this is movie love, where every emotional scene is backed up by a sickly love song which attempts to manipulates the viewer. Its a complete and utter embarresment.
