Forget about A CHRISTMAS STORY or Charlie Brown. Heck, forget about Baby Jesus! LOVE ACTUALLY is basically the whole reason I celebrate Christmas. For, without this masterpiece of a romantic comedy, there would be no love in this cold, cruel world. Plus, we'd all be stuck singing "Jingle Bells" instead of everyone's favorite carol, "Christmas Is All Around."
I challenge you to find one other movie that combines Colin Firth, an adorable little boy with a dead mom, the British Prime Minister, the porn industry, Mr. Bean, a washed up rock star and a kid in an octopus costume into something that makes me cry tears of shimmering, golden joy into my mug of spiced wine. This film TROUNCES all other holiday films in the "squee" category. I mean, ask me how many times I've rewound and watched the scene when Mark shows up at Juliet's door and shows her a sign that says, "To me, you are perfect." Because OMG I WANT THAT!!!!
Join us for this very special holiday edition of Girlie Night, where you're allowed (and expected) to squeal, sigh and grab your neighbor's arm when Colin Firth finally proposes to that Portugese lady. Just in cases! (Sarah Pitre)
