Love Actually had the potential to be bad, very bad. It’s a romantic comedy, it’s British, it’s about eight movies rolled into one. All of these things could make it good, but any one of them could go horribly wrong. But it didn’t.
It was a charming movie. Maybe a little cliche at time, but that’s what entertainment is for. Like any romantic comedy, the end is fairly predictable, at least for most of the story lines. However, the road there is quirky and delivers quite a few laughs. I was amused, I was touched, I loved it. It was a solid set of stories played by terrific actors.
