    I only saw this film for the first time ever a few days ago. It’s dated as all hell and the dialogue is utterly dreadful

    While wary of romantic comedies generally, the most memorable scene in Love Actually would have to be the scene where Emma Thompson is crying in her room while Both Sides now by Joni Mitchell plays as she realises her marriage has gone to shit and she can never trust her husband again then she wipes away her tears and puts on a smile for the kids so they think they are one big happy family, which is probably the most real reflection of real life in the film.
    Hope I win!!

    It’s Andrew Lincoln outside Keira Knightley’s house with the placards.
    When he walks away and says “enough” and draws a line under the relationship.
    Gets me every time.
    We’ve all been there…..

        Mildred is like Morrissey to me.
        I love her unconditionally…. but I never want to ruin it by meeting her :)

    Every scene with Liam Neeson, who speaks with an accent from The North of Ireland, despite being the brother of Emma Thompson’s character? An aside – I spent one Xmas day watching the movie with my brother, Big Mick – we muted the volume and made up absurd dialogue. Big Mick does a great Neeson, I did Keira Knightley’s character with a Cornish fisherperson’s accent .

    Has to be the scene where Rowan atkinson, looking like a real bad guy distracts the security guard so the little lad can say goodbye. You never expect it

    It would have to be Emma Thompson weeping over Joni Mitchell. It kills me every year. There’s so many layers to the scene — her realisation that her husband is cheating, the thoughtfulness of the gift versus the mistress’s jewellery, how excited she was and disappointed she is over the necklace, how she has to keep her sobs quiet so she doesn’t ruin the whole evening, and of course my undying adoration of Alan Rickman confused with feelings of “HOW DARE HE HURT EMMA”.

    True story, when I was a wee girl I used to tell people Emma Thompson was my aunty.

    While wary of romantic comedies generally, the most memorable scene in Love Actually would have to be the one where Jamie withdraws to his French cottage where he meets Portuguese housekeeper Aurélia, handily taking advantage of the EU free-movement of labour and ease of travel. Of course, with Brexit, that’s the end of you Brits having your European cake and eating it, isn’t it Jame? Ha ha ha.

    Rubbish movie.

    … the scene with Hugh Grant dancing around No 10 Downing Street IN HIS SOCKS. Not least because Leo Varadkar admitted he got a ‘little thrill’ when walking down those stairs made famous by Hugh.. but also because we can imagine Mrs May dancing down those very same stairs..with a tad less panache!

    The best thing about this movie is the end credits, when i can slap mrs s on the bum region as she gets up to make the tea.

      ahhh Clamps however little I appreciate this film may we have one thread without this pox

        1. Clampers Outside!

          I’ll try for a recovery, just asked my wife for help as I haven’t seen the movie… :)

          The scene with Emma Thompson listening to Joni Mitchell having realised her husband was having an affair…

          Sounds horrible…

          ( I do have a soft spot for Emma Thompson, maybe I’ll watch it over Christmas. She’s so hot… riding a horse in Much Ado About Nothing ;) )

    ‘While wary of romantic comedies generally, the most memorable scene in Love Actually would have to be the funeral scene’. Neeson and the big eyed kid are brilliant. Liam Neeson inhabits that character very believably and it is impossibly sad. The big eyed kid just has to sit there. I’m crying thinking about it.

    That bit where the robots attack and all the eagles come to the rescue, and its all “pew pew pew!” and they win at the end.
    That’s my favourite bit, but I tend to daydream….
