it's that time of the year. can we out the knob heads that think love actually isn't the greatest film ever made?
king knob head
You been des'ree'd
W is miles from k,n,o, b space and h.
All of the half-arsed sentiment is undermined by Kris Marshall and his big stupid face going to America to shag anything that moves and apparently succeeding.
always knew you were one of the cool ones c_r
Which ever one you mean he's in there somewhere.
however, contrary to popular opinion I think it is very good. On occasions very funny, on others quite heartbreaking. But the whole section with the geeky dickhead off of the BT ads is rotten.
Most poor, a few fucking awful
Bit like DiS
Become a pop star, and people give you them for free.
That's a good line
You missed off the bit with the kid and the bit with the carer. The rest of it's perfectly acceptable, mind, and a couple of bits work really well.
Crazy, Stupid Love does a similar thing much, much better though.
It's certainly not as bad as some people make out, also not as good as my mum thinks it is (or you for that matter, sorry).
great Christmas film
Just the sight of McCutcheon makes my bowels curdle so liquid dribbles out of my anus.
I have mild fondness for Four Weddings, can tolerate Notting Hill but Love Actually is beyond the pale.
McCutheon & PM Grant = 3/10
Firth & Portuguese fox = 6.5/10
Drumming kid/Neeson/Schiffer = 6/10
Eg/Rick stalking Kiera Knightly = 2/10
BT twat flying to Milwaukee = 0.5/10
Rickman cheating on Thompson = 6/10
Laura Linney caring for her brother 7/10
have I missed any?
Knew I'd miss one!
It's amazing how much they crammed in when you look back at it. And weren't they all linked in some way?
on the same level as Emma Thompson crying on the bed? She's the best thing in the film by a mile (Bill Nighy maybe).
when she has to pull herself together in front of the kids. If you've ever had to stop yourself crying about something because there's people around then you'll know how bloody well she does that bit
I mean, imagine how you'd feel if the person you loved most bought you a Joni Mitchell box set for Christmas
Nighy singing shit song = 3.5/10
Tim Canterbury & Stacey Shipman = 4/10
Hugh Grant/Martine McCutcheon = shit
Emma Thompson/Alan Rickman = okay
Laura Linney = Great, but in the wrong film
Kris Marshall = shit
Keira Knightley/Andrew Lincoln = shit
Liam Neeson's kid = totally shit
Bill Nighy/Rab C Nesbitt = okay
To sum up, mostly shit.
Mainly cos she is so fit
only because the bloke she fancies is so fit
when she sees one!
the number of possible punchlines to this.
gagging for one
'Christmas angel', but the idea was dropped. Now that is a shame.
Looks fucking shit.
in full anyways...
I may have seen the full film across a number of Christmases without realizing
Hate hate hate that little doofus kid that has Liam Neeson for his dad though. Love to fix his wagon
'lets get the shit kicked out of us by love'
The security guards should have shot him dead when he broke through the airport gates too. I'd report them for dereliction of duty if I was there
he would have surely got torn apart by angry mob, because his security breach would've lead to Heathrow being shut down on day before Christmas, or whenever it was.
is when Hugh Grant stands up to America because the president was a perv
though admittedly not as tedious as the Laura Linney section.
The more I think about it, it's pretty much Martin Freeman and Bill Nighy that keep the thing watchable.
was that (generalisation alert) nobody's first crush works out and that can be a good lesson in life - and a nice bittersweet story. Neeson should've told him that, or maybe he did, I can't remember. the story would've made more sense that way, but then again, I'm an ageing cynic so what do I know.
I think it would've had more emotional impact if the girl was a bit more plausible as a character.
there's no point falling in love because she'll only die, or you will die first, it's all pointless. Plus she's american and probably riddled with crabs."
1)Kris Marshall should have come back from the States walking bow-legged and riddled with STDs
2) Nice Liam Neeson outtake where he googles Claudia Schiffer pics and has to deal with more and more obscene pop up porn, just as his dad in law comes round to show him a golf website
3) Alan Rickman's office temptress
5) Lyndon David Hall was awesome and I did like the All you Need Is Love bit.
and their garish pink messages.
But it feels completely out of place in this romcom nonsense.
but I'm sure I remember it being dull, trite, emotionally manipulative bullshit too.
but I like every Richard Curtis film though. And I really like Hugh Grant
Neeson's kid and his story line is nauseating as fuck.
and she properly started bawling when it finished. The whole cinema were staring at her as they piled out out. It was nuff embarrassing.
there are three copies of Love Actually on VHS in every charity shop in Britain, two copies of Full Monty, and four copies of Bridget Jones' Diary, and a copy of The Matrix.
Fucking todger in it
every so often Buzzfeed is OK...
> love actually
but the style of film it inspired is a crime more heinous than the film itself
valentine's day for one. it has taylor swift twerking in it and it's still the worst film ever made.
Valentines day was awful, New years eve was worse. There have been others all terrible.
Dude, seriously! This is happening, we're gonna get on the plane, go to Israel and we're TOTALLY GOING TO GET CRUCIFIED! WHILE EATING CHOCOLATE EGGS! We are going to get sooooo muuuuuuch pussyyyyyyy afterwards maaaan......! And your dad can come too and have a hilarious sub-plot where he gets his dick stuck in the wailing wall! YEAH!
and when Liam Neeson is running through the airport at the end I keep expecting him to start punching people.
a while back diet coke ran a vote for the best films ever thing
the top ten would then get shown in the cinema
this was whilst love actually was still on in the cinema
love actually was in the top ten thus depriving us of the chance to see a genuine classic back on the big screen
grabbed the chance to see the godfather 2
1 the fucking BT guy story is so fucking embarrassing. Even worse is that it didn't get cut from the North American versions so they think that is what we think!
2 the running through the airport scene is so hard to watch knowing full well that the moment he isn't details, arrested and or shot dead the rest of the film must be a total dream fabrication and none of the events that happened afterwards actually happened. It is like the biggest twist in cinema.
3 Hugh grants speech was until this summer the most embarrassing thing a PM real or fictional has ever done at a press conference until DAVID Cameron decided to do it for real.
Bill Night is great.
Laura linney and her brother is heartbreaking and I agree it is in the wrong film
Emma Thompson smashes it
is Marcelline the Vampire Queen out of Adventure Time? Facts.
Hate it so much. Everything about it.
amelie is awful
Is Withnail & I
Not Christmasy as such but it makes me feel a bit more up for the Christmas period.
To hell with Richard Curtis.
Bill Nighy was great and he got cast in absolutely everything despite not being able to act? Must be nice for actors to slog along and then have a little random payday when they're 50 odd.
(that was my bill nighy impression)
I'm finding it hard to get movie work recently - keeps going to the same people. You know, people who are actors, or who audition for things.
Us guys who don't do any of those things aren't getting a sniff at a motion picture
with ewan mcgregor and cameron diaz?
and then Hugh pulls a face and Taken shoots the place up using a drumkit
you've got a pair of bollocks given how high you're willing to jump for attention. That being the case, 4/10 trolling. See me after class.
who thought it would be a good idea to stick loads of romantic comedy plots into one massive pile of saccharine sick? i went to the cinema with friends to see it so couldn't escape.
