Love Actually's "Honest" Trailer Will Reminds You How Amazing the Cast Is—and the Movie Isn't! Watch:

12 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Many find Love Actually to be a "Royale" hunk of cheese, but thanks to the creative folks at Screen Junkies, we are all reminded that it also boasts one of the most badass casts of all time. More than 11 years ago, the romantic R-rated comedy movie was released. It received mixed reviews. It also made more than $246 million worldwide and remains a popular chick flick. On Tuesday, Screen Junkies released a parody "honest" trailer calling the 2003 film a "Pulp Fiction for girls, stuffed with eight different plot lines that are creepy and depressing when you actually stop to think about them" and "one of the most subversive chick flicks of all time."

Spotlight on the Stars: Keira Knightley

12 hours ago | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s new spotlight piece, I wanted to cite an A-lister who doesn’t quite get the credit that she deserves. That lovely lady is none other than Keira Knightley, an Academy Award nominated actress mostly known for her period piece work but capable of far more than that. In fact, she proved that earlier this year, as I’ll mention below. Regardless, she’s very talented and someone still on the upswing of her career, so she made perfect sense as the latest honoree in this series. As such, the spotlight is now shining on her today. Knightley got her start with some British television and a tiny part in the film Innocent Lies, but the first place you’d likely have seen her is in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, where she had a small but noticeable part. There was a bit more »

Love Actually Gets an Honest Trailer (Video)

13 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The first snowflakes of the year have fallen, which means it's time to gather up the girls and watch Love Actually one more time, at least. With an ensemble cast that features Hugh Grant, Keira Knightley, Alan Rickman, Laura Linney and Rick from The Walking Dead what could possibly go wrong in this holiday rom-com? YouTube's Screen Junkies found a few things and bundled them up into an honest trailer as their gift to you. The first strike against this new era Christmas classic is that inspired a line of significantly weaker, celebrity-packed movies that take place on a holiday »

The Honest Trailer For Love Actually Is So True and So Hilarious

16 hours ago | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Love Actually might be a timeless romantic comedy, but the honest trailer version of it skewers within an inch of its life, and the results are so funny you might spit out whatever you are drinking if you dare to drink anything while watching this. It kind of makes you reexamine all these downright weird situations, plus The Walking Dead interlude? Priceless. Front Page Image Source: Universal Pictures »

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

18 hours ago | 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 »

9 Reasons Mariah Carey’s ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ Is the Best Holiday Song of All Time

25 November 2014 6:54 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The holidays aren’t here until Mariah Carey says so. But when you hear "All I Want For Christmas Is You" -- that’s it. It’s time.

That’s just the way it’s been since 1994, when the jolly diva dropped that musical gift under our tree. Now a ubiquitous modern-day classic, its tambourine-shaking, bell-ringing, high note-hitting joyfulness could turn even Grumpy Cat’s frown upside down.

Video: Who Covered Carey's 'Christmas' Best?

Here are nine tributes to the original song that prove – even now, 20 years later – all we want for Christmas is Mariah:

1. Magic Mariah

Not even elves or jiving gingerbread men can upstage a diva (watch as she even throws them some shade). When Carey belted the tune in 2004 at the Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade, the magic wasn’t happening inside the kingdom – it was happening on that stage.

2. Holly, Jolly and Retro

Honest Trailer for Love Actually

25 November 2014 5:44 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Long before Andrew Lincoln started crushing zombie skulls on The Walking Dead, he was crushing on his best friend’s wife in Love Actually. Screenwriter Richard Curtis’ directorial debut featured a fantastic ensemble cast of established actors and many (then) unknowns who would go on to greater fame, like Lincoln. It also had multiple plot lines that (sorta) intersected and deliciously cheesy clichés. All of those elements were lazily lifted in the rip off film Valentine’s Day and its sequel New Year’s Eve. Of those three holiday set romantic comedies, only Love Actually is worth revisiting, which you can do in a fraction of the time by just watching Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailer for it below.

Side Note: If you haven’t seen Curtis’ latest directorial effort, About Time, you need to sit down and watch that, stat! It’s one of the best time travel movies to date. »

Watch: 'Love Actually' Honest Trailer

25 November 2014 1:26 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There are a number of films I am always surprised people actually find enjoyable. They usually fall into the schmaltz category and have me scratching my head, thinking "You people are buying this crapc" One such piece of emotional schlock is 2003's Love Actually, which is the latest victim to get the "Honest Trailer" treatment. You can watch the video below. This idea that a romance is romantic simply by people being attractive and making grand gestures to one another gets deep under my skin. For instance, the famous cue card scene in the film, you know the one that is the cinematic equivalent of a pen down the throat over a toilet, should not be looked at with blushed cheeks, a smile, and dust in your eyes. That should be seen as a crazy person about to upend his best friend's life. That is not a situation destined to end with rainbows and puppies. »

Ok, so maybe Fifty Shades of Grey isn't for everyone… There's already one celeb who's speaking out against the film, taking aim at the one and only Mr. Christian Grey, Jamie Dornan. Anna Kendrick took to Twitter to share her thoughts on the controversial casting, writing, "The '50 Shades of Grey' dude looks just like 'Love Actually' kid. I feel less *turned on* and more like....I should call child services..." Who she's actually referring to is Thomas Brodie-Sangster, who has been in Game of Thrones and The Maze Runner since, but we can kinda see the resemblance. Clearly Kendrick won't be rushing to grab seats at the nearest theater come »

The Walking Dead: 5 Things Self Help Did Right (And 5 It Didn’t)

11 November 2014 6:15 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

AMC

And you’re back in the room. Or actually, maybe not: last week’s Slabtown seemed like a break from the main narrative of The Walking Dead, and that the show would presently be returning viewers back to the ongoing survival of the Rick Grimes Experience. Yet as time goes by it looks like the groups are getting more and more fractured, with Beth off having a grand old time in that weird high-rise police state, whilst Abraham leads a splinter faction that departed from the holy safe haven the group bedded down in after the Terminus debacle.

So Self Help again moved the focus away from the “main” characters of The Walking Dead – that bloke from Love Actually and his kid with the tiny head – and instead settled on some other members of the ensemble for a change, as the volunteers headed out on Eugene’s supposed mission »

The Walking Dead Flashback: Remember When Rick Grimes Was This Guy?

27 October 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

After watching Rick Grimes (spoilers) brutally butcher the survivors of Terminus last night with a machete, I had to stop and think about just how far we’d come from season one, and even before that. The Walking Dead is never going to be a show that attracts too many Emmys, it seems, but that doesn’t mean the cast and crew aren’t doing a hell of a job, particularly in these late seasons, as the show just keeps getting better and better. In particular, I don’t think Andrew Lincoln gets enough credit for his haunting portrayal of Rick, who has gone through a ton in the last four or five years, and he’s brought many, many dimensions to the character. We’re getting (vaguely) close to Christmas now, so naturally one of my favorite holiday movies is on my mind, Love Actually. That reminded me how »

9 October 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Hugh Grant has said that he dislikes the majority of the films he has appeared in.

The actor, who plays the lead in upcoming romantic comedy The Rewrite, told The Mirror that he turns down the majority of work he is offered now.

Hugh Grant: Nobody wanted me in Four Weddings

Grant, who has had roles in films including Love Actually, Four Weddings and a Funeral and Bridget Jones' Diary, said: "I have pretty much hated any other film I've ever been in. But I liked this one.

"Nowadays I pretty much turn everything down anyway, because I just feel too old. Certainly for romantic comedy and certainly for showbusiness in general. Occasionally, they wheel me out."

The actor, who was speaking at the world premiere of The Rewrite, added that he does not consider his new film to be strictly a romantic comedy.
