Thread Name: BS: Love, Actually...
Subject: RE: BS: Love, Actually...
Both funny and charming, notably lacking in inane sitcom-type dialogue, and including a few vignettes that certainly haven't been done before- like Liam Neeson's stepfather section and the porno movie stand-ins section. Why do people refer to this as a Hugh Grant movie?? His vignette was the most "contrived" and the least heartwarming of the bunch. Peter T. has that ultra-hip attitude of those who want us all to go watch movies about Serbian atrocities. And..."A film that is supposed to be about universal love popping up all over might at least take a shot at something other than middle class white heterosexual romance"???!! Shucks, I guess some of us just missed the whole point...
