!! Love Actually


Added DiffLines:


!! Red Nose Day Actually
* Pretty much the entire segment with Daniel and Sam. The two of them are so close now that if one hadn't seen the original film, there'd be no way to know that Sam isn't Daniel's biological son.

Added DiffLines:

* Laura Linney later revealed that she and Rodrigo Santoro had both recently been dumped when filming the movie, so she said to him "We get to spend all day making each other feel better." She also says no one should feel sorry for Sarah as she got easily the best kiss in the movie.


* Billy ditching a party at Elton John's to go hang out with "his fat manager", who has always been there for him, even when he was a washed-up nobody.

Added DiffLines:

** FridgeBrilliance - he's the first person she points to, and it's of course revealed that she did feel the same way. So that wasn't just part of the show - it was her telling him without actually telling him.


Added DiffLines:

* And what prompts David to go and find Natalie? Getting a Christmas card from her, which she signs "your Natalie".


** Joanna pointing to Sam for a split second when she's singing "All I Want For Christmas Is You". His smile is absolutely adorable!



** Mark admitting to Juliet via cue-cards that he does love her, but ends with closure that he's going to put his feelings aside, because his friendship to Peter is what's important.
--->'''Mark:''' Enough. Enough now.



* Jamie's proposal at the end, especially with a whole group of people following him to the restaurant.

* Jamie's proposal at the end, especially with a whole group of people following him to the restaurant. In particular, Jamie trying to confess his feelings to Aurelia in broken Portuguese...only for her to answer in equally-broken English, which she learned "just in cases". Aww!


Added DiffLines:

* Billy ditching a party at Elton John's to go hang out with "his fat manager", who has always been there for him, even when he was a washed-up nobody.
* Whilst trying to find Natalie's house, one house answers the door and it's three little girls, who ask David to sing them a Christmas Carol. He obliges, to their immense joy. His copper even joins in, and has a great singing voice!

Added DiffLines:

* A cut second scene between Sarah and Michael, whilst still a tear jerker, shows them actually having a brief conversation; reminiscing about childhood Christmases and their Mum's terrible cooking.


* ...And of course, the *genuine* displays of love and affection by the real people at Heathrow during the opening and at the end.
** Including several muslim families (just two years after 9/11), because they were Britains too, and love actually is all around.

* After Billy Mack makes #1, he's invited to a party at Elton John's, and we see his loyal manager sitting alone at Christmas. Then there's a knock at the door...and it turns out to be Billy, who's decided to abandon the party in order to spend Christmas with his one die-hard fan.

* The whole movie is practically made of heartwarming moments, but my favorite is actually a small and subtle one: Daniel is Sam's stepfather, and all through the movie Sam has called him Daniel... right up until Daniel says they have to follow Joanna to the airport, to which Sam says, "Okay, Dad." He then immediately follows it up with a CrowningMomentOfFunny by adding, "Let's go get the shit kicked out of us by love."
** Less subtly, Daniel's crush on Claudia Schiffer is a RunningGag in the movie (and played into a RefugeInAudacity CrowningMomentOfHilarity in a cut scene). Shortly after the scene where Sam calls him Dad, Daniel bumps into a Claudia Schiffer lookalike (played by herself, naturally). The attraction is clear, mutual, and leaves him stammering... and he still focuses on getting Sam to the airport instead.
*** And then, in the month later epilogue she's at the airport with them when Joanna gets back.
