Now, though, Curtis, England's most successful comic screenwriter, has shown that when it comes to Hollywood pap, the English can teach Hollywood a treacly trick or two.

This plum pudding of a romantic comedy is rich with delicious moments.

Forget about stiff upper lips. Though very British, this irresistible ensemble comedy will easily coax full-sized grins of enjoyment from viewers.

Out of the cacophony of other, newly minted love affairs that promise eternal love forever and ever, theirs stand out like a winter fern among hothouse roses, adding a much-needed zest to the bouquet.

Love Actually provides enough happy endings to make the audience forget that romance and Christmas miracles don't always work out.

It is not only the best romantic comedy in quite a long time, it is every romantic comedy in quite a long time, baked into a melange and made gargantuan. I left smiling like a huge imbecile.

As I've said, it's not entirely rinsed free of schmalz but 14 years on, it still works. Happy Christmas.

Aside from all the hearts and flowers, though, it's Bill Nighy's uproarious turn as an over-the-hill rocker promoting a novelty record that really delivers the laughs.

Romantic and entertaining -- for older teens.

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...
