This Honest Trailer for Love Actually Points Out How Creepy the Film's Plot Actually Is

Dec 01, 2014

It's officially December, which means the only thing any of us should be doing is curling up with a lovely cheese pizza to watch Home Alone.

Some people, however, see the holiday season as a time to watch Love Actually, the 2003 Christmas rom-com that is beloved by some, and severely loathed by many. To offer a critique of the film, the folks over at Screen Junkies re-worked the trailer to create a more honest portrayal. A brutally honest portrayal.

"From the man responsible for every movie your girlfriend tried to drag you to," the voice-over begins, "comes the film responsible for every bad movie about a dozen famous people falling in love on a popular holiday."

The mock trailer then goes on to point out how creepy the film's many divergent plot lines are, how the whole movie is just riddled with tired cliches and how it stars "all these people you liked better in other things."

Happy holidays!
