Hear ye, hear ye: the holiday season’s best rom-com just turned ten. Which means – oh yes – it will be playing on my too-small TV this weekend, and next weekend, and so on… ’til Christmas do us part.

And men out there, it will probably be playing on yours. (Although I have a feeling your TV’s a bit larger.)


Not comfortable admitting it? It’s okay. You. Are. Not. Alone. The Cut has proof of the flick’s cross-gender appeal:

We realized — to our surprise — that many of [Love Actually’s] biggest fans we knew were dudes… Some bros found that liking Love Actually attracted women; other bros found that it is a film best enjoyed alone. A couple men confidently admitted to crying… Almost all the bros called Alan Rickman “Snape.” One bro called Emma Thompson “Hillary Clinton.”

Now, go forth to thy DVD player. Love Actually season has commenced.
