Love Actually blows, actually.

Love Actually blows, actually. Much has been said as of late (see below) of the 2003 film Love Actually, as it assumes the status of "holiday classic." We most certainly dispute that assumption and furthermore do not think it is anything about love as it "actually" exists in the real world. "Love Cinematically" might have been an acceptable title (denigration to the cinema notwithstanding). The premise of Love Actually is no more than "if and only if a woman waits passively and exerts no control over the course of her romantic life, will she be matched with a charming, powerful man who will find, adore, and love her." It's regressive, chauvinistic, and anti-feminist, and saps one of the ownership they have over their destiny.  • http://jezebel.com/i-rewatched-love-actually-an...  • http://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archiv...  • http://www.npr.org/blogs/monkeysee/2013/12/14/2...  • http://moviemezzanine.com/what-the-love-actuall...  • http://thelead.blogs.cnn.com/2013/12/20/is-love...
