Usually hate this kind of movies, but this one was very very good. Feel-good christmas movie that was enjoyable all the way trough. The funny parts were actually funny too.

I didn't excpect this at all. Highly recomended.

I certainly commend its ambition. It's one of those films with multiple intertwining stories, like Crash, Magnolia or Babel, but the subject here is love. Some have it, some want it, some are getting it, some losing it. Family, friendship, romance, empty adulation. All sorts. Curtis has assembled an improbably stellar cast (some would only become prominent stars later, I suppose) and is telling, what, 8 stories? Most of which could have been their own film. So yes, the film has scope. More poignant than funny, I did laugh in several places, but I also wanted more of the stories I found most engaging. There were so many, sometimes one was left idling for so long you wondered where it went. If I must name my favorites, I'll go with Hugh Grant as the Prime Minister of Britain in love with an assistant - it's the UK's own The American President. I'd also mention Liam Neeson as a father helping his young son catch the love of his life's eye. And you know, I could watch Bill Nighy or Emma Thompson do things all day long. The movie has me regretting every thread I'm NOT mentioning, so I suppose that's an endorsement. There are worse things than being left hungry for more.

It's a good movie and a fine movie, and does not actually try to be more profound than it is (save, perhaps, for the opening and closing montages).

First time I watched it it was at the cinema and we were due to see Master and Commander, but it was sold out. So we watched this. My girlfriend loved it (aphrodisiac!).

Seen it twice since.

Watched it yesterday... Valentine's Day, with my wife...her pick

I recommend the DVD commentary, full of insight include how to walk on film... Incredible insight from Andrew Lincoln

It's a nice movie. I did enjoy many scenes and found them funny, although I liked some stories more than others... Keira Knightley's and Colin Firth's stories were really sweet. Alan Rickman is always great, but his secretary was so annoying I did not really buy his interest in her. The singer was mostly just tedious.

All in all, not as bad as some people say, but neither as good as it's described sometimes.

Awful. Cringeworthy. Shallow. Painfully fake.

Pure crap in my opinion. All is so fake and dumb... I don't even understand how people can like it.
