Cast overview, first billed only:
Rory MacGregor ...
Lulu Popplewell ...
Daisy - Her Daughter


Against the backdrop of aged has-been rock star Billy Mack's Christmas themed comeback cover of "Love Is All Around" which he knows is crap and makes no bones about it much to his manager Joe's chagrin as he promotes the record, several interrelated stories about romantic love and the obstacles to happiness through love for Londoners are presented in the five weeks preceding Christmas. Daniel's wife has just passed away, leaving him to take care of his adolescent stepson Sam by himself. Daniel is uncertain how to deal with Sam and his problems without his wife present, especially in light of a potential budding romance within their household. Juliet and Peter have just gotten married. They believe that Peter's best friend and best man Mark hates Juliet but won't say so to his or her face. Others looking at the situation from the outside believe Mark is jealous of Juliet as he is in love with Peter himself. Jamie, a writer, is taking a writing retreat by himself in rural France ...

Sam: Yeah.
Daniel: Aha, good, good. And what does she - he - feel about ya?
Sam: *She* doesn't even know my name. And even if she did, she'd despise me. She's the coolest girl in school and everyone worships her because she's heaven.

Tripe, actually
29 June 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

A stellar cast is drawn together for...what? For the biggest load of tripe I've had the misfortune to sit through in a long time.

Hmmm...Romantic COMEDY? Laugh...I thought I'd never start - and I was not wrong. Not a chuckle, not a titter was raised. Humour of the middle-class dinner party variety doesn't work for me. Lame, obvious jokes and cartoon characters abound. "Common as muck" Natalie swears in front of the "upper-crust" Prime Minister and we're supposed to find it funny? Charming? Believable??? PREPOSTEROUS?!

LOVE? If Richard Curtis thinks his threadbare characterizations and superficial plot lines constitute or represent love in any meaningful way then he is bonkers, actually.

Utter rubbish. Disney for grown-ups.
