Here's Boris Johnson making the grossest scene in Love, Actually somehow even worse

Here's Boris Johnson making the grossest scene in Love, Actually somehow even worse

It’s the holidays, which means it’s time to reignite one of the season’s oldest traditions—debating whether or not Love, Actually is, in fact, a terrible movie. The extremely British 2003 rom-com has maintained a cult following of diehard fans over the years, but there are a number of themes and scenes that really, truly just don’t fly in 2019. In particular, that scene where Andrew...

This supercut of Hugh Grant stammering in Notting Hill is over 2 minutes long

This supercut of Hugh Grant stammering in Notting Hill is over 2 minutes long

Long before Hugh Grant complained of the decibel levels in movie theaters , he sported a floppy kind of hairstyle—best known as the curtain cut—that could make any modern eboy envious. He put it to good use in a handful of British romantic comedies —Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually, and Bridget Jones’s Diary, among them. Some might say, however, that Grant (and his hair) peaked in...

Hugh Grant posts 1995 arrest photo for the "trolls": "Now you have more time to spend with mummy"

Hugh Grant posts 1995 arrest photo for the "trolls": "Now you have more time to spend with mummy"

At this point, it’s somewhat difficult to tell where Hugh Grant begins and his film roles end. Cantankerous , acerbic , occasionally charmingly befuddled —these could be used to describe any number of Grant’s movie characters and/or real life public interactions. Some of his best recent examples have come from the actor passionately stumping alongside both Labour and Liberal Democrat...

Hugh Grant is either an old man or movie theaters are just too damn loud

Hugh Grant is either an old man or movie theaters are just too damn loud

Hugh Grant, whose best movie is definitely Paddington 2 , may be making a new case as to why the movie theater industry is struggling (if you believe that sort of thing) in today’s post-MoviePass world : everything’s too damn loud. Grant, who, like all of us, loves using Twitter to vent about politics and ask for stolen goods back , recently took to the platform to let the world know that...

The Gentlemen trailer: We can't remember the last time we were so excited for a Guy Ritchie movie

The Gentlemen trailer: We can't remember the last time we were so excited for a Guy Ritchie movie

The only thing not perfect about the new trailer for The Gentlemen, Guy Ritchie’s much-needed return to his profanely comic roots following that live-action Aladdin , is that it’s not called Toff Guys . Toff Guys turned into Bush after its U.S. rights got scooped up by STXfilms and now, with its trailer and release date unveiled, it’s called The Gentlemen, which, fuck, is the exact opposite...

Hugh Grant says Paddington 2 is his best movie, so don't tell him otherwise

Hugh Grant says Paddington 2 is his best movie, so don't tell him otherwise

Movies for children can be hell, but Paddington and Paddington 2 are different. These movies are clever, have a lovable protagonist, and, per our own Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, “never betray the sweet-tempered worldview of its source material.” Hugh Grant, who starred in the sequel, apparently agrees, as he now wants to set the record straight that, out of all of his movies, Paddington 2 was the...

When Romance Met ComedyWith When Romance Met Comedy, Caroline Siede examines the history of the rom-com through the years, one happily ever after (or not) at a time.  

Before diving into its hilarious opening act, Elton John’s cover of the Gershwins’ “But Not For Me” warns us that Four Weddings And A Funeral won’t be all romance and comedy. “They’re writing songs of love, but not for me,” he...

Ugh, Guy Ritchie's Toff Guys isn't called Toff Guys anymore

Ugh, Guy Ritchie's Toff Guys isn't called Toff Guys anymore

Guy Ritchie can’t always be relied upon to make the smart decision. Following Snatch with Swept Away ? Bad move. King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword ? Woof. Will Smith’s very blue, very CGI Genie ? We’re still nightmaring about it. But calling his new movie—one starring Matthew McConaughey, Colin Farrell, and Charlie Hunnam that is also meant to evoke the U.K. director’s hilarious,...

It takes a lot to become a new Christmas classic, so it’s doubly impressive that Love Actually managed to enter that pantheon while also holding the distinction of being one of the most divisive holiday movies ever made. Love...

Guy Ritchie's new movie's called Toff Guys, innit?

Guy Ritchie's new movie's called Toff Guys, innit?

Guy Ritchie was a weird choice to direct Disney’s live-action adaptation of Aladdin, and the stories emerging from the set haven’t exactly assuaged those concerns. Thankfully, the Snatch and Sherlock Holmes director’s next project puts him in back in his comfort zone of pitting mouthy British and European gangsters against each other. He’s even calling it Toff Guys, lest you have any doubts...

Hugh Grant has trouble dancing in the new Love Actually reunion trailer

Hugh Grant has trouble dancing in the new Love Actually reunion trailer

After plenty of teases, we’re finally getting a trailer for the Love Actually reunion/mini-sequel that features actual footage of the Red Nose Day special. So what’s changed for our heartsick Brits (plus Laura Linney)? Well, it’s a little harder for Hugh Grant’s prime minister to groove, Bill Nighy’s Billy Mack is now bragging about shagging one of the Kardashians instead of Britney...

Love Actually’s famous cast shows up in new Red Nose Day reunion trailer

Love Actually’s famous cast shows up in new Red Nose Day reunion trailer

The first trailer for the Love Actually reunion orchestrated for Red Nose Day simply featured Andrew Lincoln recreating his iconic confession of love. The latest brings back a whole host of famous cast members—also wielding poster board—to advertise the charity event and insult Colin Firth. Set to the movie’s theme blaring out of an iPod, the likes of Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rowan Atkinson, Keira...
