In my defense, it was more of a reaction of surprise than a legitimate enjoyment of a “joke.” But before you cast the first stone, watch the trailer for yourself (yes, you have to, BURN WITH ME) and let’s compare and see whether or not it provokes the same response in you.
Hugh Tiberius Grant. How dare you attempt to sully the good name of Colin Firth by suggesting that he has not aged gracefully! I can’t believe you have the gall to even suggest such a thing, and that’s why I laughed, okay? It’s not because I’m earnestly looking forward to a Love Actually reunion, the uncomfortable Irish sweater of Christmas movies (it makes you feel all warm and cozy inside, but at what cost?), even if it is for charity or whatever. ESPECIALLY because it seems to be missing all the best non-Bill Nighy characters. Where is Chiwetel Ejiofor? Where is Emma Thompson? Where is the Christmas lobster.
Ah, well. At least there’s a cameo from my favorite performer: the first generation iPod.
Between this and Iron Fist, I’d say you’re well on your way to a comeback there, little buddy!
