Love Actually

I hadn’t seen the film a second time since it came out in 2003 so I was a little nervous to see it again.  I generally loathe rom-coms and I had spent seventeen years telling anyone that would listen how much I liked this movie.   On second viewing it was even better than I remembered.  There are times when I writing a review of a movie where I just throw out the thoughts on the details of the movie and just say that I loved the hell out of what I watched (as I did recently with This Is Where I Leave You).  The minute it was finished I could have watched it again and I never feel that way about a movie.  Is it cheesy and sappy and obvious at times?  You bet.  It doesn’t matter – the movie is magical.
