Love Actually | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Radheyan Simonpillai CBC Radio A cringe 10 for the price of one bulk holiday sale of the most well-worn rom-com tropes. Dec 11, 2023 Full Review Love Actually | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Scott Tobias AV Club Love Actually provides enough happy endings to make the audience forget that romance and Christmas miracles don't always work out. Nov 5, 2019 Full Review Love Actually | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Christopher Orr The Atlantic The tagline for Love Actually is "The Ultimate Romantic Comedy." Perhaps. But not in the sense the producers intended. Nov 5, 2019 Full Review Love Actually | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Stephanie Archer Film Inquiry Set to the backdrop of Christmas, Love Actually finds believability in the unbelievable, crafting an environment where anything can happen and the greatest risks should be taken. Jan 12, 2024 Full Review Love Actually | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand The film is all but stolen... by Bill Nighy as a washed up rock star goofing his way through his holiday TV and radio appearances as his seasonal song climbs the charts. Jan 6, 2024 Full Review Love Actually | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Douglas Davidson Elements of Madness ... Curtis and company remind us that love, actually, is everywhere no matter the time of year, period, or place. That’s what helps make it a staple watch this and any other time of year.

Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/14/21 Full Review Average P This one has suffered a bit of a backlash. It's still one of Richard Curtis' best.
