Movie 41 of 2008: Love Actually

Movie Description:

Everywhere you look, love is causing chaos. From the bachelor Prime Minister of the United Kingdom who, on his first day at 10 Downing Street, falls in love with the girl who brings him his tea, to a hopeless sandwich delivery guy who doesn't think he has a chance with the girls in the U.K., so he heads for Wisconsin. From aging rock stars, to a stony headmistress, to a monolingual Portuguese housemaid--love arrives in many forms, shapes and sizes. Here, ten separate--but intertwining--stories of love all lead up to a big climax on Christmas Eve, proving that love is the driving force in all of these people's lives.

My Opinion:

Time and time again I've been told that I NEED to see this movie, so... I finally gave in and bought it and watched it. It definitely wasn't my favorite movie of all time, but was a great movie and one I'd watch again. It also was the tearjerker that I was warned about. I related to several of the characters in various ways throughout the film as I've been there, done that throughout past relationships as I'm sure many people have. It was a good (or bad) Christmas film to watch depending on how you look at it. I was already feeling kinda down Christmas Eve night when I watched it and this probably pushed me a bit more over the edge, but I'm not sorry that I watched it. I recommend it to anyone that enjoys a good romantic comedy film. There are some laughs in the film as well as all the romance so it's not JUST a "chick flick".
