Love in many forms

This was a wonderful movie. I had a little bit of a hard time keeping track of a few of the story lines for a while, and of how each set of people connected to everyone else, but love in all these different forms was fun to explore. Sometimes over the top, sometimes bitter, sometimes sweet, sometimes passionate, sometimes growing, or fading. Love comes in so many different ways. Well done.

Actually

A bit over the top, but, a grand holiday must watch.

Great story

I loved this movie. CasualTim said that guys are forced to watch this, and that is true in some cases. Personally I am a guy and I watched it on my own.

The acting is superb, the story is well written because they will all cross and it is easy to keep track of each one, the one downside is that it truly earns its R rating. NOT FOR CHILDREN! there are children in it but they don't cross the more adult story lines other than possibly some language. I HIGHLY recommend it and I may pick up a copy because I saw it.

a must

a feel-good movie that's a must for the holidays.

Hilarious

I loved this movie!

Fine enough

I expect to be made to watch this movie several times over the course of my life; I think the current count is three. As the kind of movie a male gets forced to watch on a semi-regular basis, this one's far from the worst. There are entertaining stories with fun, quirky twists. Generally when the time comes, I don't object to sitting down to see it (again).

However, a few things: The story that takes a jaunt to the US was a bit over the top for how 'realistic' everything else is meant to be - though to be fair many of the stories are simplified quite heavily. And I'm sorry, but no matter how you spin it, the story with Keira Knightley's character is disturbing and icky. As is the little boy who plays Liam Neeson's son - that kid looks like an alien possessed by a demon (trivia - according to IMDB, he was in six Barney episodes, then less than a year later played a 10-year old Hitler before his role in "Love, Actually." Creepy, I tell you) .

Otherwise fine holiday fare. Not a classic, but above average.

7/10, (inclusive of +1 for any appearance of Alan Rickman, whom Bill Nighy nearly outshines in this film)

Every holiday

There are three films that I watch every year during the holidays and sometimes in between. Holiday Inn and White Christmas since I was a child and Love, Actually more recently. They make me happy and make me cry. For Love, Actually I cry during the credits. They set up a camera at Heathrow Airport and filmed people greeting and embracing each other. I find this so moving. Every kind of person: young, old, male, female, all races. People laughing, crying. It has a great over dub "there is love, actually all around us" in a long speech. Then the screen is split into smaller and smaller segments. I find this wonderful.
There are ten stories told here. They are loosely linked. Some have happy endings, some don't. They are romantic, outrageous, tearfully sad, funny, courageous. They are short stories, I don't believe anything is lacking. They have a beginning, middle and end. Alan Rickman, Liam Neeson, Bill Nighy, Colin Firth, Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson and many others give quality performances. This film has a "R" rating for nudity and language. I guess twelve old boys might be titillated. But it is about love, kindness and the choices people make. There is no violence. Much of it is laugh out loud funny. The film takes place during the holidays. The musical score is great. The extras are worth watching.
