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 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.
Robert Downey Jr
For the second year in a row, Robert Downey Jr. topped Forbes' annual list of the highest-paid actors in Hollywood. The magazine estimates that the Iron Man star earned $75 million between June 2013 and June 2014. In addition to the Iron Man movies, Downey also anchors the Avengers franchise.
Girls star Lena Dunham made her Saturday Night Live hosting debut Saturday, but she wasn't the only celebrity guest to stop by. Liam Neeson, Jon Hamm and former cast member Fred Armisen also made cameos in what was overall a mediocre episode.
Louis C.K. to host SNL
Dunham predictably addressed the rampant nudity and graphic sex in Girls, both in her so-so monologue and in a hilarious parody of the Garden of Eden story. Did anyone honestly think Dunham could get through the entire episode without showing some skin? This hilarious trailer for "Girl," a new movie about Adam and Eve, features great impersonations of Dunham's co-stars Adam Driver and Zosia Mamet by Taran Killam and Vanessa Bayer. Take a look:
Son of God, the pared-down feature-film version of the History Channel miniseries The Bible, had an impressive debut at the box office this weekend, taking in $26.5 million, Box Office Mojo reports. But it wasn't able to best Liam Neeson's action thriller Non-Stop, which landed at No. 1 with $30 million.
Natasha Richardson, Liam Neeson
It's been nearly five years since Natasha Richardson tragically died in a skiing accident, but her widower Liam Neeson says it still doesn't feel real.

NATALIE: No, Ashley will definitely be back, at least for the season premiere, in which she pops up at one of Emily's big parties. Look for her to share an awkward encounter with her ex Daniel, just as he seems to be as in love with Emily as he ever was. Meanwhile, Jack will be hitting the bottle extra-hard now that he's a single dad and knows the truth about Emily.
