Oh, didn’t you know? It’s December, and we’re running Love Actually into the motherfucking ground. Our latest attempt to squeeze every last bit of saccharine mana out of this glitter crapfest that we can: Why does everyone think there’s a comma in the title?
I thought there was a comma for YEARS. Which one looks right to you?— Rebecca Pahle (@RebeccaPahle) December 4, 2016
I thought there was a comma. Courtney thought there was a comma. There’s no comma. I thought, hey, maybe the U.S. release had a comma. It does not. Even Google is confused.
The title comes from the line “Love actually is all around,” spoken by Hugh Grant in the film. We see the entire quote on-screen. There’s no comma. There’s not even space for a comma.
But there should be a comma…. right?
Love, actually, is all around.
Love actually is all around.
Love. Actually! Is all around.
What is this Mandela Effect bullshit? I hate this movie. And “Very Romantic. Very Comedy.” (on the top pic)—did Love, Actually predict the doge meme? That can’t be real, right? The poster on IMDB doesn’t have that tagline, but just about every Google Image search result does. This movie was spat up from the bowels of hell expressly to torment me.
Also, I keep noticing bad clothing decisions in this movie. Laura Linney gets a call from her brother when she’s already stripped down to her underthings so she can do the ol’ one-two sausage slip with Hot Karl. She runs out in the middle of the night to her brother’s care facility, but instead of throwing on yoga pants or sweats, she opts for fishnets?
Honestly, this is the moment I was done with Laura Linney’s character. Fuck her. She deserves every lack of boning she gets.
