A summer re-run...

"The world is my oyster...and I can't get the damned thing open."~~aka_monty
I don't normally 'review' the movies I watch. But today I exercised my woman's perogative, and changed my other mind.
I finally got 'round to watching the movie Love, Actually.
Call me a silly, sentimental sap (yes, hard as it is to believe, even I have my moments), but I Actually Love it.
Here are a few of the things I took away from the movie:
Some really great quotes. "C'mon. Let's go get the shit kicked out of us by love."
I never realized the intricacies involved in setting up a scene for a porno.
I am still madly in love with Alan Rickman and his beautiful, thick-as-honey voice.
I wouldn't half-mind seeing Hugh Grant as Prime Minister.
If I was a lesbian, I'd do Laura Linney. And Emma Thompson as well.
The guy who played Karl(Carl?) was smokin'.
The kid who played Liam Neeson's son was actually an elf. Or perhaps a hobbit in disguise.
It must really suck to be in love with your best friend's spouse.
It pays to learn a foreign language.
Not all Brits have bad teeth. I think Americans started that rumor.
This is now in my top 5 favorite sappy romantic movies, second only to Sense & Sensibility.
(Coincidence that many of the stars are the same? I think not!)
I think I'm a closet Anglophile.
If I put on a British accent, I'd probably get laid a lot more.
