Netflix: Love Actually

Posted on the 08 November 2011 by Erictheblue

Of King Lear, Lionel Trilling said it is not enough that there is one broken man wandering the earth in despondency and madness; there must be two.  For Richard Curtis, director of Love Actually, it is not enough that there is one absurd love story tugging at the heart strings of good-hearted holiday moviegoers; there must be seventeen. 

It's like splenda on frosted flakes. 

With Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Laura Linney, Colin Firth. . . . many others: 17 x 2 = 34, and some of the stories involve, you know, triangles.  Terrible, just terrible.
