25 Days of Christmas Movies Day 3: All You Need is Love
LAST MOVIE WATCHED: Love Actually TO WATCH OR NOT TO WATCH: This charming star-filled, holiday themed rom-com is great....but unfortunately inspired quite a few mediocre wannabes (I'm looking at you New Year's Eve and Valentine's Day.) Ah well.....at least it lead to the hilarious parody below as well.
But this film is the exception...and does the multiple storylines and characters thing right. Honestly, I'd watch the film just for Emma Thompson's performance. What she accomplishes in just a few scenes worth of screentime is pretty impressive. So why should you watch it around Christmas? Well because apparently Christmas is the one day a year where you can truly be honest with people (is that really a thing??) Don't ask me why the other 364 days in the year won't work....so you better watch it during the holiday season. EMILY RATING: 8/10 UP NEXT: The Muppet Christmas Carol.
