On Thursday, December 20 at 6.30pm, ODEON Cinemas Nationwide will screen the iconic Christmas romantic comedy, Love Actually (2003).
Last week, with a pair of free tickets on offer, we asked you to name the movie’s finest scene.
You answered in your tens.
But there could only be one winner.
In reverse order then…

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
‘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.’

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
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!!
