Is Love Actually the Ultimate Holiday Rom-Com or a Depressing Hot Mess?

Anyone's who's logged into Netflix lately has no doubt noted the presence of Love Actually in the "Popular on Netflix" category. That's because the British comedy has become something of a modern classic for the holiday season. But not everyone sees it that way.

The ensemble film with nine different plots set around Christmas hit theaters in 2003 to high anticipation. Not only was this filmmaker Richard Curtis' follow-up to the popular Four Weddings and Funeral and Notting Hill, but it also boasted so many popular British stars that there was no way it could fail, right? Well... while some fans are still devoted to the film, they're the first to admit that it's an imperfect movie. But while editor Joyce Eng embraces the film's range of stories and strong performances, fellow editor Hanh Nguyen is put off by the often depressing plots and creepy, male-centric take on so-called romance.

When we last saw the ghost of Nora Montgomery, formerly a '20s-era socialite who maintained her well-to-do lifestyle by feeding her flailing, drug-addicted surgeon husband starlets in need of an abortion, she was telling Ben to man up and protect his baby from crazy Hayden!

Battlestar Galactica OK, I know...

Battlestar Galactica
OK, I know it's Dana Delany, but I think that given her obsessive collecting of files and other tin-foil-hat doings, we're not dealing with the compassionate Colleen McMurphy here. But before I'm proved right (with the hostage taking) and wrong (about the conspiracy-nut angle — she was actually correct about Adama having a Cylon onboard), we get to see poor Billy proposing to Dee, only to have his heart ripped out. It obviously tears her up inside, though, since she immediately dolls up and tells Apollo all about it over a romantic dinner on Cloud Nine.

Then everything goes Die Hard, with Delany's bitter widow, Sesha read more
