Feel the love this holiday season with the Love Actually 10th Anniversary Edition! Funny, charming and heartwarming, this delightful romantic comedy follows eight couples whose lives intersect shortly before Christmas. Headlined by an incredible roster of stars, this beloved film also features early movie appearances by Martin Freeman (The Hobbit), Andrew Lincoln (The Walking Dead), January Jones (Mad Men) and Thomas Sangster (Game of Thrones). From the makers of Bridget Jones’s Diary and Notting Hill, it’s the perfect companion for every Christmas.

The plot lines are stereotypical garbage you'd find in a tabloid magazine - you know, The kind nobody buys at the Walmart checkout counter. There are 8 plots that take place in the span of two hours, leaving 15 minutes for each plot. You actually think you can make a 15 minute rom-com? Most crappy youtube videos are longer.
The stories are also depressing. Far from romantic, the movie hints at betrayal, cheating, abandonment, and shallow goals. It's representative of all of the worst imaginable parts of the most dysfunctional relationships.
If you think it's a good rom-com to watch with your girlfriend or wife, think again. It's trash.
I find all the characters interesting but my favorites are Jamie (Colin Firth) and Aurelia (Lucia Moniz) though I'm not sure why, I just do.
Rowan Atkinson, as usual does his small bits, but they are very funny scene stealers.
Emma Thompson has an incredibly revealing and heart breaking scene in the bedroom. Alan Rickman as usual is wonderful.
Laura Linney plays a woman who gives too much and doesn't take what she wants and needs so desperately.
Andrew Lincoln is very gorgeous as a man living with a painful unrequited love. Keira Knightly and Chiwetelu Ejiofor are a newly wed couple. Hugh Grant underplays the PM of Great Britain with one of my favorite silly dance scenes. Liam Neeson is a bereaved step father tending to his young step son in a crisis called being in love. There are other stories and they all mesh and the movie flows well together.
Love in many different forms with many different outcomes and still worth watching 13 years later.
Watching Bill Nigh once again do his BROAD & over the top Keith Richard impression.
Watching Laura Linney ruin a wonderfully beautiful opportunity to have a night cap w/ a gorgeous guy, but instead bringing him immediately upstairs & then unbelievably ruining it by answering the phone not once, but twice.
Just so much cringing, so much embarrasment at the hideous writing.
Let's not forget the Brit cliches of Hugh Grant stammering & dancing ala Tom Cruise.
Just so so terrible & insulting on every possible level.
I will NEVER wrap my mind around this film being so popular & even considered a classic!
And believe me, I despise moral self righteousness, but so much depressing & painful crap with
everyone screwing up relationships with decent characters to be gross with whomever, it's just mind boggling.
It's not even over yet & I grabbed the computer to write this because I'm so repulsed by the idiocy of this nonsense.

Best romantic-comedy film of all time? I'll be honest: I'm your average bloke who doesn't tend to watch that genre (I haven't seen Bridget Jones's Diary) but I can say it's a very amusing film in parts and it made me feel all warm inside and put a smile on my grumpy face! The opening and closing scenes of the film take something which is so mundane and turn it into a magical experience which restores your faith in humanity.
The cast is exceptional and is chock-a-block with stars such as Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Keira Knightley and Rowan Atkinson. I was already a big fan of 'The Walking Dead' before I first saw Love Actually so it was really weird seeing Andrew Lincoln (Rick Grimes) doing a British accent in a romcom (I'm aware he's British-just use to the American accent in TWD!)
In addition to the exceptional cast the soundtrack is absolutely amazing: Dido, Bay City Rollers, The Beach Boys, The Beatles (well, a cover of a Beatles song) and the choice of music for the scenes is faultless. There is a great scene in the film which you have probably already seen in an internet meme and that's Hugh Grant (who plays the British Prime Minister in the film) dancing to 'Jump (For My Love)' by the Pointer Sisters.
As for the plot, well it's pretty obvious it's all about romance-we see the journey of several couples/people about to become couples in the film and it's wonderful how it all comes together. If you haven't already seen it you're missing out big-time and I expect it will become a tradition for me to watch this every Christmas and who knows...maybe I'll have someone to share it with next Christmas!
I rather fell for the story about the charming little boy and his step-father - t, hree or four love- stories in one, you might say,
Some of the deleted scenes are well worth looking at too.
I don't think I have persuaded anybody that this film is worth seeing - but try it all the same, or read some of the other reviews, which are clearer and better than mine.
*The outtakes are great to watch. They were cut because the film would be too long. Shame really as they add so much to the stories of some of the not so important characters. Richard Curtis introduces each scene, although he doesn't have to.
Perhaps we might get a Director's Cut edition some time.
Surely you know the film so I won't bore you the the synopsis. If you don't... well it's heart warming, comical, sad and XMASEY.
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.
It would be unfair to criticise the product the the very slow deliverly time however. Ordered with prime as a prime customer and yes, we had some bad weather at the time, but 10 working days to get this too me from order date was a bit of a joke!
