For better or for worse, Curtis was also a writer for the Mr. Bean and Black Adder TV series.
    I found neither heart nor humour in "Love Actually". And it didn't really feel very solid. ('though I loved the gospel choir at the beginning).

    I still think Curtis is brilliant. He won the nation's hearts with The Vicar of Dibley, which I prefer to Blackadder and Bean.

    -What are you talking about?
    -Endymion, my dear. A beautiful youth possessed by the moon.
    -Well, forget about him and get to bed.
    -Yes, my dear.

    They're unrealistic, but a light and funny escape from real life. No guy in real life is ever as romantic as they come in Rom-Coms.
    Constantly? No. Can some beat moments? Don't see why not? Problem is most guys forget this after the honeymoon period and don't maintain their relationship the write way. Hint guys: After you marry, you shouldn't stop dating your wife (twice a month w/o kids, once a month with kids minimum is a good). Ok, I'm derailing this thread with the INTJ "fix the relationship to be perfect" side. Ciao.

    i think when the writer talked about candy and stuff, it was more of a metaphor for romance than anything. N types want creativity, so yeah, i agree that flowers etc. get cliche. i'm an NF myself, so i think i know where you're coming from (that's what she said ).

    I tend to agree, the one eNFj girl I know, just is too old to still have time for romance

    I thought the storylines in Love Actually varied from bad (the guy voyaging to America) to charming (the movie stand-ins) to romantic (Hugh Grant and the delicious dish playing his underling) to sublime (Colin Firth and the Portugese girl) to laugh out loud funny (Bill Nighy as the aging rocker). Yeah, it's uneven, but it's so good natured and the best parts are brilliant. I also have a weakness for Christmas-themed movies.

    Yup, most of the time (especially with the really soppy ones), it's not even something I'd like for myself, but it's still nice to get carried away by the film and live the emotions.
