RTBN 25 Days of Christmas: Day 6
Love Actually
Rachel
RTBN 25 Days of Christmas is the RTBN staffs irreverent exploration of our collective holiday pop culture traditions.

love actually

Listen, guys. It's been a rough day at work. I feel really disconnected from holiday joy. I mean, it's 11 pm and I have to be up for work at 4:30 and yet I'm still awake. Working.

It's only appropriate that tonight is Love Actually night. It's a movie you can watch when you're happy and it will make you happy. But Love Actually is a successful Christmas movie because you can also watch it while you're sad"”and it will let you be sad. That might sound ridiculous but it's true.

A lot of people have problems with the divided story, claiming that each couple doesn't get enough attention to really go anywhere. But those people are wrong. Love Actually is beautiful, if only for this:



But then there's also Bill Nighy"¦.



And Colin Firth"¦



And Hugh Grant"¦



And Alan Rickman...



And Liam Neeson...



And if you don't love all these things, then there's actually something wrong with you.


Come back tomorrow for a RTBN exploration of A Christmas Story.
