Well, I was forced (not that firmly though) to go and see Love Actually on Saturday and I was expecting to be well asleep ten minutes in...
Liam Neeson, Hugh Grant, the eldest son from 'My Family' Emma Thomson (sp?) and Rick what's his face were all excellent, and the intricate story was quite pleasant. The winner though was by far the aging rock and roll star, what a great character I was laughing at every one of his scenes.
Rocker: Ask me anything you want and I'll tell you the truth.
DJ: Who was the best shag?
Rocker: Britney Spears...
GASPS ALL ROUND
Rocker: (Laughing) Not really............. She was RUBBISH.

ugh! I thought this was an awful film, it really was terrible.

I don't think it was terrible, why do you say that? It isn't a GREAT movie but it passed the time well enough.
Why on earth would you go to such a movie that is clearly not to your taste?
asimovian (sp?) means I was unsure of the spelling!!!

My wife dragged me to this movie (it was the only movie that fit in the time the baby sitter was available...), and you know, I thought it was great. Some truly great lines. Some of the story lines were better than others, but the general way the threads came together was really quite innovative.
The aging rocker story line was so full of great writing and caustic humor that it alone was worth the price of the movie.

My wife REALLY wants to see this. I'm thinking of taking her tonight...
BUT, I also heard from some people who saw it last week, that it wasn't all that good. From what I understand the story is made up of several plot lines, and they said it didn't work all that well...
Good to see that some of you do like it though.

Me? Soft? Hmm... I think a tear just came to my eye... I love you man!

So, anyway... Back in the real world. The wife came home lastnight with a bunch of paperwork that she wanted to get done before Thanksgiving weekend... Movie date got dismissed... Very quickly I might add! Perhaps Friday when I get home from work we'll go... It's just such a bad weekend for movies, the crowds take away some of the fun. I just know I'll be sitting behind that group of highschool girls who talk all the way through the movie, and call people on thier cell phones...
Eventually I'll see it, then I'll post my thoughts.
I'm not a fan of Grant or anybody in the cast. Four weddings didn't do much for me either, so I'm not the primary demographic, but I'll be there with the prime audience sitting at my side. Ultimately that's what the chick flick is good at, getting two butts in the seats at a movie that only one butt is interested in...
