Romantic comedy set in London which interweaves 10 stories of love including a newly elected prime minister (Hugh Grant) who falls for his curvaceous secretary (Martine McCutcheon); a recently widowed father (Liam Neeson) left to care for his young stepson; and a comfortably married woman (Emma Thompson) who fears her husband (Alan Rickman) is contemplating an affair. From romantic to puppy love, from love between spouses, friends and families to unrequited love, writer-director Richard Curtis has composed a touching if uneven film that pleases despite familiar cliches and overworked situations. However, unnecessary extended sexual scenes detract from the film's overall drollness. Several scenes of sexual encounters with nudity, a few sexual references and innuendoes, and intermittent rough language with an instance of profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
