10 years ago we were given this gift although some might not consider it so…
Sap heaped upon syrup piled upon sugar, but still funny and with some quite meaningful and even poignant moments.
There are many faces of love, many stories, these are only a few, but what a lovely few.
Sure, some parts hamper the flow and are dreadfully contrived, but the message is still lovely.
My fav bits are:
Billy Mack (Bill Nighy) and Joe (Gregor Fisher) and their bond. Nighy’s striptease is priceless.
Hugh Grant as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom is delightful (kind of his thing), especially his impromptu victory dance around 10 Downing Street and his conversation with Margaret Thatcher’s portrait, the saucy minx.
Billy Bob Thornton is scarily good as the smarmy President of the United States.
