Love Actually provides enough happy endings to make the audience forget that romance and Christmas miracles don't always work out.
November 5, 2019
The tagline for Love Actually is "The Ultimate Romantic Comedy." Perhaps. But not in the sense the producers intended.

Sit back, and gawp at Ideal Britain. Revel in the tipsy plot. And enjoy a film full of adult whimsy and adolescent whingeing.

That could have been a fascinating theme, but Mr. Curtis's film has no attitude about it other than blind approval.

Love Actually is alternately beguiling and bloated, witty and warmed over, smart and pandering. The majority is likely to swoon.

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

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

This is an embarrassment, an overdrawn rom-com gone very wrong.
August 7, 2004
A highly engineered puffball.

This kind of comedy has just hit the wall.

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.

Warm, bittersweet and hilarious, this is lovely, actually. Prepare to be smitten.

... a terrific film.
November 10, 2003
It's terrific fun for an hour, but by the last of its 129 minutes you might find yourself going into insulin shock.
November 8, 2003
There are no fewer than nine interlocking and overlapping love stories in Richard Curtis' deadly epic sprawl of a romantic comedy, Love Actually. By the end of the movie, that's nine too many.
November 7, 2003
There's enough that's right about Love to compensate for what's wrong with it.
November 7, 2003
If listing the cast of Love Actually is exhausting, it's even more tiring to watch it.
November 7, 2003
Love Actually is irresistible.
November 7, 2003
A form of emotional hardcore.
