Many find Love Actually to be a "Royale" hunk of cheese, but thanks to the creative folks at Screen Junkies, we are all reminded that it also boasts one of the most badass casts of all time.
More than 11 years ago, the romantic R-rated comedy movie was released. It received mixed reviews. It also made more than $246 million worldwide and remains a popular chick flick.
On Tuesday, Screen Junkies released a parody "honest" trailer calling the 2003 film a "Pulp Fiction for girls, stuffed with eight different plot lines that are creepy and depressing when you actually stop to think about them" and "one of the most subversive chick flicks of all time." It's "honest" title: S--t Actually.
The video then translates the plot lines into language cynics can appreciate.
Example: "This guy, who's trying to bang his best friend's wife...wait, is that Rick?"
The mock trailer shows Love, Actually star Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, calling for his son Carl Grimes ("COOOOORAL!") on The Walking Dead. Love Actually has a character named Karl, played by Rodrigo Santoro.
The trailer then floats a fantastic theory as to why the movie remains a fan-favorite; The film, it says, stars "all these people you liked better in other things." You know the shows on TV? Yeah, some were on those.
