Keep reading to see who was in the project and don't forget to relive your love for the flick by checking out the best Love Actually GIFs.

Love Actually gets Honest Trailers treatment: "Wait, is that Rick?"

26 November 2014 8:48 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Fan favourite Christmas film Love Actually has been given an Honest Trailers makeover.

As we get closer to the festive period, the Screen Junkies YouTube channel looks at the Richard Curtis movie with its own brand of brutal honesty.

After being bombarded with tweets requesting an edit, this latest trailer is billed as being "from the man responsible for every film your girlfriend tried to drag you to", before ripping apart each and every storyline.

Liam Neeson and Thomas Sangster's father/step-son relationship is "a man getting over his wife by helping his kid seduce a girl with the same name as his mum".

Meanwhile, the Prime Minister's (Hugh Grant) tea lady (Martine McCutcheon) storyline is boiled down to "a powerful older man who fires his subordinate for being distractingly hot".

That's not forgetting Andrew Lincoln (or "Rick from The Walking Dead") "trying to bang his best friend's wife »

23 November 2014 2:31 AM, PST | Bollyspice | See recent Bollyspice news »

The duo that brought Shor In The City and Go Goa Gone have shifted gear with their latest offering of Happy Ending, starring Saif Ali Khan, Ileana D’Cruz, Kalki Koechlin and Ranvir Shorey. But don’t worry, Raj and Dk have their message clear. You can’t make a difficult film for the aam janta (common people). How that would amount to an amalgamation Richard Curtis filmography is a different question altogether. Yet its not all bad.

Yes we see Saif Ali Khan for the umpteenth time as a playboy charmer man-child Yudi Jaitley, profession this time a writer. And yes, we have some very beautiful women including leading ladies Ileana D’Cruz and Kalki Koechlin falling for him. There’s also the easy drunk-married-yet-regretting-it friend Monty played by Ranvir Shorey. Lets add Priety Zinta in a special appearance and Not a song, and our beloved Govinda to add some more flavour. »

Film Review: ‘The Rewrite’

13 November 2014 4:27 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A screenwriter has to be mightily confident in his script to christen it “The Rewrite,” a title that begs jaded critics to suggest it may have needed another pass or two. Marc Lawrence’s affable but under-inflated romantic comedy does little to fend off such punchlines: The story of a faded Hollywood scribe seeking to regain his creative mojo via a small-town teaching job, the film finds its own writer-helmer struggling to match the bubblegum snap of earlier works. What it does have is Hugh Grant — a standby collaborator for Lawrence, and not an asset to be underestimated. Happily paired with the ever-game Marisa Tomei, the British star hardly tests himself with yet another study in high-class bumbling, yet his breezy effortlessness is precisely the kind that’s in overly short supply here.

Given its easy digestibility and an ensemble speckled with familiar faces — including erstwhile “Juno” spouses Allison Janney and J.K. Simmons, »
