Bombastic audience-hooting moments aside, Curtis has written his most accomplished film, finding the energy to direct the hell out of it as well. And it's even gloriously R-rated to boot.

Despite it's naivety, this is one of the most beautiful and heart warming movies to come around in years...

Loads of fun as long as your expectations aren't overly raised by the hype, the cast and the taglines.

This is cloying, deceitful, and more or less irresistible.

Without ever sounding a false note, this endearing ensemble holiday flick manages to be nuttier than Notting Hill, more satisfying than Bridget Jones' Diary, and even more intricate than Four Weddings and a Funeral.

Plenty of entertainment in this well acted ensemble comedy that Robert Altman could easily have put his name on.

Curtis has created a joyful, entertaining date movie that'll leave you with a smile on your face and an almost irresistible urge to hug somebody.

Curtis has lost none of his touch, though the ending is somewhat muddled and 135 minutes is very long, even for a good romantic comedy.

It's tart and amusing but carries a slightly cloying aftertaste.

Upon first viewing, it is something of a guilty pleasure. Upon second viewing, it is simply a pleasure.

Love Actually is cheerful and undeniably romantic and, despite its flaws, you'd be hard-pressed to sit through the credits without smiling.

All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie until, in the end, it went somewhat bonkers with what amounted to a communal love fest on Christmas Eve.

Whatever the actors are given to do they make so delightful -- or so delightfully moving -- that Love Actually wins out over its wobbles.
