‘Love Actually’ Turns 10: Seven Critics Who Hated The Rom-Com

On the occasion of the Christmas classic's anniversary, we look back at the Scrooges' humbugs.

But the film, which stars pretty much all of the working thespians in the U.K., hasn’t always been so beloved. Especially by critics. As we celebrate the film’s 10-year anniversary, let’s look back at seven reviewers who didn’t think love actually was all around.
