NYT Review: Tales of Love, the True and the Not-So-True

An indigestible Christmas pudding from the British whimsy factory responsible for such reasonably palatable confections as "Four Weddings and a Funeral," "Notting Hill" and "Bridget Jones's Diary." — A. O. Scott Read the review

This is cloying, deceitful, and more or less irresistible.

J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, 2007-11-27

 

All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie until, in the end, it went somewhat bonkers with what amounted to a communal love fest on Christmas Eve.

Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, 2003-12-04

 

Whatever the actors are given to do they make so delightful -- or so delightfully moving -- that Love Actually wins out over its wobbles.

Stanley Kauffmann, The New Republic, 2003-12-03

 

... a terrific film.

Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper, 2003-11-11

 

It's terrific fun for an hour, but by the last of its 129 minutes you might find yourself going into insulin shock.

David Edelstein, Slate, 2003-11-10

 

There's enough that's right about Love to compensate for what's wrong with it.

Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, 2003-11-07

 

Love Actually is irresistible.

Claudia Puig, USA Today, 2003-11-07

 

It's no hardship whatsoever to sit through Love Actually ... But if Curtis could have sharpened his focus, and trusted his actors a bit more, Love Actually could have been splendid.

Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times, 2003-11-07

 

It's too busy with too many stories to tell. But there's so much heart and silly fun and genuine sentiment here, delivered by an A-list of Brit and American talent that it's hard to fault.

Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel, 2003-11-07

 

[Curtis] is nothing if not capable of creating merry, madcap romantic comedy, and he punctuates the purposely hackneyed developments and labyrinthian structure with sly wit and sprightly pacing.

Connie Ogle, Miami Herald, 2003-11-07

 

Curtis shows the same eccentric humanism and charm that gave him Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill.

Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle, 2003-11-07

 

This is an embarrassment, an overdrawn rom-com gone very wrong.

Review, Time Out, 2006-02-09

 

A highly engineered puffball.

Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture, 2004-08-07

 

There are no fewer than nine interlocking and overlapping love stories in Richard Curtis' deadly epic sprawl of a romantic comedy, Love Actually. By the end of the movie, that's nine too many.

Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com, 2003-11-08

 

If listing the cast of Love Actually is exhausting, it's even more tiring to watch it.

Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, 2003-11-07

 

A form of emotional hardcore.

Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star, 2003-11-07

 

Love Actually , Curtis' holiday-themed directing debut, abandons any pretext of sophistication for gloppy sentimentality, sugary pop songs and bawdy humor -- an approach that works about half the time.

Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle, 2003-11-07

 

Yet another pandering, half-baked romantic comedy.

Lisa Rose, Newark Star-Ledger, 2003-11-07

 

Slick but uneven romantic comedy.

Jonathan Foreman, New York Post, 2003-11-07

 

This movie is so unfunny, uninspired and unoriginal I swear it could have started out as a club-footed Coen Brothers vehicle for George Clooney.

Rex Reed, New York Observer, 2003-11-07
