Love makes couples, classified


At any time Christmas is everywhere, Love in fact is back on television and in the air. The 2003 holiday romantic comedy has become a Christmas classic for its interwoven storylines and myriad of romances. Yet the many relationships of Love in fact become more and more controversial over the years. Sometimes it seems like no one can agree on which couples are bad and which are good. We classify the ten main couples of Love in fact and why.

10. Harry and Mia


The worst couple of Love in fact is not exactly a “couple” in the traditional sense of the term. Really, this is a couple of people doing a really bad thing. Mia (Heike makatsch) pursues with some assurance and outrageously his boss, Harry (Alan rickman). In turn, Harry buys Mia an expensive piece of jewelry that ultimately destroys her marriage. Some very toxic behaviors, coupled with derailing your wife’s life on Christmas Eve, are enough to make you the worst couple in most romantic comedies.


9. Colin and the American Girls


One of the strangest, most unloving storylines in a love movie is Colin (Kris marshall) and the five women he meets in the United States on his trip there with the simple aim of finding hot women who won’t be offended by his lack of tact and who will just want to sleep with him. When Colin is fed up with his bad luck with women in the UK, he travels to the US where he hears that women are more likely to have sex with you. This couple or, rather, this group is at the bottom of the list because they are not romantic or “love” oriented as much as sex and the ego’s weird caresses. Nonetheless, in the end, it seems like the parties all end up happy, and happy endings are always welcome in romantic comedies.

8. Harry and Karen

As Harry has already managed to be part of the most hated couple along with his mistress, it’s no surprise that his relationship with his wife is also quite low on the list. Harry has what appears to be an okay relationship with his down-to-earth, funny and beautiful wife, Karen (Emma thompson) We note that he is not attentive enough, but all the same, they seem to have a beautiful family and a beautiful life. Nonetheless, Harry throws it all into what appears to be an act of somewhat bewildered confusion rather than love. While the story leads to heartbreak and ends with ambiguous doom, there’s a reason this relationship isn’t last on the list. The reality of this story stands out. The portrayal of Harry and Karen’s dynamic is realistically painful. And, the scene of Karen after discovering the affair of her husband with that of Joni Mitchel On both sides now is a heartbreaking, realistic, and relatable portrayal of betrayal.

7. Juliette and Marc

Juliet (Keira knightley) and Marc (Andrew Lincoln) became the poster children (no pun intended) for Love in fact. Mainly, the one of Mark showing Juliet the poster that says “To Me You Are Perfect” has become synonymous with this movie. And, of course – who doesn’t want to read those words written for them against a “Silent Night” soundtrack? It’s a beautiful scene without the context. Unfortunately he is context, and this context is not so good. For many people, having your best friend and new spouse kissing on the street outside your home would mean the loss of two of the most important people in your life. And nothing promises that this is not the case for Juliet’s husband, Peter (Chiwetel Ejiofor). The final scene involves Peter never finding out that his best friend and his wife lied to him and kissed him on the back. And, while there is an implication that Juliet doesn’t return Mark’s feelings, she still kisses him, which doesn’t bode well for her and Peter’s relationship. Mark saying “enough now” by walking away after the interaction doesn’t exactly make up for the interaction itself. They can be poster kids for Love in fact corn Juliet and Mark suck, actually.

6. Sarah and Karl


Sarah (Laura Linney) and Karl (Rodrigo Santoro) the relationship looks like a real tragedy among love stories. And, in many ways, it is. They have a mutual crush, and when the time finally comes to reunite after years of semi-secret languishing, Sarah can’t bring herself to reject her brother, Michael (Michael fitzgerald) calls from their psychiatric facility. This stops Sarah and Karl’s romantic evening in its tracks. The angle of the film seems to be that if Sarah lived her life and was not beholden to her brother’s desires, she would have the life she dreams of. Still, it’s hard to ignore the fact that Sarah is Michael’s primary family member and caretaker. She explains this to Karl, and yet Karl considers the whole interaction to be nothing more than a buzzkill. Seeing that he could have comforted Sarah and stayed to hang out, it feels more like Karl’s fault that this romance doesn’t work. Ultimately, “love” doesn’t just mean sex and it doesn’t just mean romantic relationship. Love comes in all shapes and sizes, and it always requires at least a little selflessness. In this way, Sarah’s love affair with Karl isn’t the best, but her love affair with Michael is great.

5. Jean and Judy


Jeans (Martin freeman) and Judy (Joanna page) represent the idea of ​​a sweet and innocent love story unfolding in an extremely innocent setting. Even so, the sweetness and enduring romance of this romance makes it work and leaves viewers rooted for this unorthodox couple.

4. Jamie and Aurélia

These two lovers are cursed as soon as they meet thanks to a fairly significant language barrier. When Jamie (Colin firth) realizes that he loves Aurélia (Lucie Moniz) despite the fact that they have never spoken to each other in a language they both understand, he takes courses to learn Portuguese and then flies to France to propose to her and tell her that he loves her in his language. She returns the favor in broken English that is just as grammatically incorrect as Jamie’s Portuguese. She agrees to marry him and says she learned English “just in case”. There is clearly enough mutual attraction out there to not only learn another language, but also to decide that marriage is the answer. This raises a question: you can finally understand each other – why not date? Or even just having a conversation for the first time! But, a proposal adds to the romance, and it’s hard not to take root for them. Unlikely? Yes. Maybe more desire than love? Also, yes. Still cute? Yes again.

3. Billy Mack and Joe


Billy Mack (Bill Nighy) and Joe (Gregor Fisher) are one of the less orthodox couples, and the conclusion to their story is a bit surprising. In a movie about love, it’s refreshing to see a story about Platonic to like. And, it’s good to see a scandalous character not mellow or unrealistically change for a love interest, but take a look at who he is and the people in his life who have made it that way.

2. David and Nathalie


David (Hugh grant) and Nathalie (Martine mccutcheon) are a bit like Love in factthe protagonist couple. While it seems odd for a grown man who is also the Prime Minister to be so attracted to someone immediately after meeting that he has to move her out of his department to focus, they still manage to be a couple. romantic at the end. David is Love in factthe narrator of, and his feelings for Natalie are real and mutual, so these two manage to be the most wonderfully rom-comy couple this movie has to offer.

1. Sam and Joanna (and Daniel)

This scenario is most likely to strain your heartstrings. The story between Sam (Thomas sangster) and Jeanne (Olivia olson) is sweet and would elicit an “aww” even from Scrooge himself. But, the real love story here is how Joanna reunites Sam and her stepdad, Daniel (Liam neesonA love story between a stepfather and a stepson isn’t the most common, and neither is the adaptation to tragedy, but this storyline sums it all up and ties it together in a happy arc. This small family unit finally attaches itself perfectly and shows all kinds of love. Love in fact can offer.
