Would You Buy a DVD of "Love Actually"?

I saw most of the flick... I'm conflicted about this movie on whether I like this movie or if I think it sucks to high heaven... Since I am on a DVD buying spree, do people think it is worth buying?

For some reason I am smitten with Miss Martine McCutcheon (Natalie). Hmmmph....

I bought a pre-viewed copy at Blockbuster. For its flaws, it's still a sweet and engrossing movie.

Well, my opinion is only mine...doesn't have to be yours or anything. So what's my opinion? I think that Love Actually is one of the worst films that I've personally seen in the last five years. I cringed...Billy Bob Thornton gives one of the worst cameo-type performances which I've EVER seen. Jesus Christ, did I hate this movie. I found it poorly-shot, poorly-composed, VERY poorly-acted, VERY poorly-/predictably-written, and oh-so-cliche'. I'm big on the sappy stuff...but not of this variety, apparently. I'd personally try to steer you WAY the fuck away from this flick, but that's just me. It was fairly popular, so I'm probably in the minority.

Ah, he was a tool, of course, but Hugh Grant totally kicks his ass!

I seriously did like it. I've watched it several times.

I liked it, but I'm a fan of Hugh Grant and Colin Firth.

I liked Hugh Grant in this movie too... Is this really his last movie?

I thought Emma Thompson saved it from being a complete disaster.

I liked it and I bought it them both for my girlfriend as an '" I'm sorry" gift. (It's our favorite movie.)
