This parody fully makes fun of the 2003 film, Love Actually. Definitely watch the movie beforehand to understand all the references. Also, being familiar with the other work by the actors involved is important as they play off other characters they have played. They use actor names instead of their character names, which is quite funny.
Songs in this spoof of the hodge-podge montage rom-com include:
“Messages of Love, Actually”
“He’s the Prime Minister (of Rom-Coms)”
“Dark Deeds in Dark Corners”
“Keira Knightly Actually”
“A Joni Mitchell CD? (For Your Continued Emotional Education)”
“The Lament of Laura Linney”
“The Language of Love”
“The 11 O’Clock Grand Gesture Number”
“Love is Actually”
The cast is so versatile and funny. Each one of them has to play multiple characters with completely different outfits. Ann Delaney is great as Laura Linney wondering why she is in this film. Jake Elkins is hilarious as one of the body doubles looking for love. Ryan Foreman is so funny as Tiny Tim. Dan Plehal is hilarious as the guy travelling to Milwaukee for the ladies. Amanda Walker is stellar as Keira Knightley and truly nails the Keira facial expression. Christopher Wayland is so funny as Professor Snape, aka Alan Rickman .
