Love Actually: All I Want For Christmas Is You

The unabashedly sappy, charming stew that is "Love Actually" is an ensemble piece that follows the intertwined threads of several Christmas story lines in London.

This is another one of my Christmas favorites: The unabashedly sappy, charming stew that is "Love Actually," an ensemble piece that follows the intertwined threads of several different story lines at Christmas in London. Starring Hugh Grant as the new prime minister! Liam Neeson as widowed dad! Emma Thompson as unsuspecting spouse! Bill Nighy as a Keith Richards clone! And many more...

Great pop soundtrack, including this version of Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas" by the young Olivia Olson. She said she was told to rein in her voice for the part because it wasn't "believable" for a girl her age.
