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?

But while TVGuide.com 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.

Laura Linney Says Goodbye to The Big C

When it comes to acting, Laura Linney knows no fear. She has embodied everyone from steely First Lady Abigail Adams in HBO's John Adams to FDR's mousy cousin/lover in the ­recent biopic Hyde Park on Hudson. But with her Golden Globe-winning performance on The Big C, she took on a seemingly impossible feat: making cancer funny.

Now the show is being put to rest with a four-­episode finale, but neither Linney nor her character, Cathy, is going down quietly.
