Upon seeing Love Actually, Rob could not disguise his ultimate hatred of the film while Lucy adored it. Their debate raged on and on over the sappy ultimate rom-com set at Christmas time and starring, well, everyone. I have to admit, I'm hard pressed to find someone (even blokes) who dislike Love Actually, but Rob talks about it with disgust, as though it was personal. That movie shot his dog. Then the two went to see Collateral, a film which Rob believes is legendary yet Lucy despised just as much as Rob did Love Actually. She even reportedly said, "That was the Love Actually for boys".
I myself love both films for entirely different reasons, so became incredibly amused by the idea that these two films could cause such heated and long-term debate. They're just so different!
The argument rages on as to the merits of each and I'm left on the sidelines shaking my head like a bystander at a fender bender. I don't think I'll ever really understand this one.
What about you? Love Actually or Collateral, actually? Comment below!
