Love Actually manages to take a number of well-developed characters and weave together their very different stories during Christmas time in London - and does it amazingly well (Garry Marshall, please take note). This scene depicts a nearly lifelong friendship between washed up English rock star Billy Mack and his long-suffering, adorably Scottish manager Joe. Billy has just stunned the British masses by scoring the number one Christmas song with his self-described "festering turd of a record," Christmas Is All Around. But instead of going out and celebrating with sex, drugs and craziness like a typical rock star, Billy decides to stay in and hang with Joe - one of those true friends I mentioned above.
Love Actually is my favorite Christmas movie of all time. It makes me feel happy and excited for the holidays, and I hope this scene puts you in the spirit as well!
The F***ing Love of My Life
Great scene! I haven't seen this flick since it first came out on DVD. Might need to rectify that this season...ReplyDelete
