Movie: Love Actually
Director: Richard Curtis
Critic rating: 5
This 2003 British comedy/romance is easily the best of it's type that I've seen in several years. A big-name ensemble tells 10 separate but intertwined stories, set in London two weeks before Christmas. As the movie counts down the days to Christmas, things build to a climax.
There's nudity, but better yet, there's some great stories performed beautifully by the exceptional British and American cast, and it never gets boring. The comedy is subtle rather than slapstick, and the romance well handled and sweet without getting sickening, and as a bonus has a really good sound track, so most people should really enjoy this movie. Excellent!
