Friday Movie Review - Love Actually

Today I am reviewing another holiday movie that is a wonderful mix of drama, romance, and comedy. It is one of my very favorites: Love Actually.



"Love Actually" follows the storylines of several characters, and their search for romance over the holiday season. One lonely young man wants to leave England and spend the season in America, where he is sure he can seduce beautiful women with his accent. A writer visits Portugal and falls in love with his Portuguese maid, who speaks no English. A widowed father watches his son strive to attract the attention of the girl he likes (my mommy's favorite storyline!). These stories and several more (including the new Prime Minister's unexpected romance) are all included in this movie.


Now, this movie is too mature for young kitties, pups, and beans. There are several instances of language and adult situations.

But the stories are funny and heartwarming . . . and sometimes heartbreaking as well. And in what other movie can you see Colin Firth, Hugh Grant, and Liam Neeson all in one place? Not to mention Alan Rickman and Mr. Bean himself, Rowan Atkinson.

And of course, one of the best scenes of all . . . the Christmas play at the local school, with a wonderful performance of "All I Want For Christmas Is You."



If your bean is a true romantic at heart, and has a taste for naughty british humor, then you should both snuggle up on the couch this holiday season and give "Love Actually" a try! I give it two paws up and a rumbly purr!

Thanks for the review. Mom says she doesn't always get the British humor. I guess it takes more intelligence than what she has. hee! hee!

Love Actually is a wonderful Christmas movie, up there with A Christmas Story and Christmas Vacation. Dad always tries to tell Mom that the first Die Hard is a Christmas movie, but she doesn't see it that way. Dad's are funny that way.

Toboe is VERY cute, but I'm not sure if I'd be too happy with that as my Christmas gift either.

We haven't seen that movie yet. Now mommy will have to rent it when daddy isn't around, he doesn't like "romantic movies"

Dana, we owe you such a big apology. You too Loki. Mommy is so sure she didn't put your name on the Christmas card envelope we sent you Dana. She actually woke up at like 2AM this morning and thought "I didn't put Dana on there" Of course she has been so lazy visiting we sent the card before we knew you were home Loke!

Please accept our apology for not putting your names on the Christmas card we sent. We love you just as much as the kitties. purrrrrrrs

Our human hasn't been to a movie in maybe a hundred years? She says they didn't have any noise when she saw them last... but she likes the reviews to see what she is missing.
And while we are here: Happy, happy Christmas to you Tybalt... of course to Holly and Ivy, and
your beans also!

Quasi said...

Both of my humans liked this movie, too! I hope you have a great holiday and a meowy new year.

The Cat Realm said...

Thank you guys so much for your awesome holiday card! We really appreciate it but have to hang out heads in shame as we are not sending out ANY cards ourselves. The staff said NO, and that was the end of it....
But we will post a card on our blog for everyone, they can't forbid us to do that!

That sounds like a "Mommy" movie - my mommy, anyway. :)

Great review ...

Camp Stanhope Happenings said...

This is one of MY favorite movies, too! It's just not the Christmas season without this movie. When my nephew saw this girl singing (the first time-and me w/o my camera!) he got up on the coffee table and danced--swinging his arms like the backup singers. I couldn't get him to do it again. (I didn't let him watch any other parts of the movie.)
