[quote="Gayle"]8 - If you could replace a leading actor or actress in any film, what film would it be and why? Audrey Tatou in "Amelie" - I just love that film.

Oh, I love that movie! I was homeschooled all through school, so the character of Amelie really spoke to me. :D She is so cute and imaginative. I also really loved the musical score. A joy to listen to.
I heard that Audrey Tatou is going to be in the movie of The DaVinci Code with Tom Hanks. Must go see that...:wink:

Colin Firth in "Love, Actually", cuz that Portuguese girl is cute! :heart:


"Love, Actually" is one of my favorite movies! And it contains one of the all-time great quotes ever uttered in a movie:

"It's time to go get the s*** kicked out of us by love!"

The fact that it is said by a ten-year-old boy to his widowed father is what makes it so funny and endearing. I loved that movie!

This whole group we have here is amazingly similar on so many levels, it's actually scary at times.... :lol:


I was completely caught off guard by that movie and fell in love with it, actually. The end leaves me all weepy every time I watch it :tears:

It is interesting that we have so many similar tastes and experiences.

Oh, Tom Hanks is going to be in that? Not my first (or whatever number) choice. Eh. But I like Audrey Tatou, at least.

I think I was particularly hormonal through my viewing of Love, Actually. I sobbed almost throughout the entire film. Quite embarassing, since I saw it in the theaters. I really should rewatch it when I'm not so emotionally unstable.

I wouldn't have chosen Tom Hanks for that role, either. I'll reserve judgement until after I see it. Read a little more here

I cry like a baby when I see Love, Actually. I cry during quite a lot of movies, however, so it isn't a big surprise for me.
I did enjoy the movie, it was quite surprising in parts. Some good surprises, some bad. I though the whole English guy coming to Milwaukee, WI (!) and getting a whole bunch of slutty girls was a little insulting... :hrmpf: But, I have to admit, amusing. :wink:

It was amusing, but the weakest part of the film. I thought it detracted from the rest. And yes kind of shallow and insulting.

Heh. Same here. It's one reason why I rarely go to the movies anymore. I just wait for them to come out on the On Demand feature. Inevitably, we'll go to a movie and then dinner and I don't want to risk looking all blotchy.

I have to say, Tom Hanks was never even considered in my mind as I read that book. It will be interesting to see what he does with the part. He is one of my favorites, but I just can't picture him in this movie. Audrey Tatou was so wonderful in "Amelie"! She, on the other hand, will be absolutely perfect for "The DaVinci Code". I can't wait to see what they do with this story.

I do believe, if I haven't over-analyzed this ( :wink: JP), this was a send-up of the cliche of how American women are supposed to be crazy about men with British accents (Aussie, New Zealand, Irish). I would have preferred they be young female professionals with a bit more substance (just like those of us here... you know that swoon over one or the other of the Conchords as we do in such a dignified manner.... :roll2:), but considering the bloke they were supposed to go ga-ga over, it would have been a bit unbelieveable, no? The fact that they were so, um.... agreeable could have been a plot device to move the story along (he was in town for two weeks of sex. There was no time to wine & dine a female executive-type. There was a certain "classism" inherent in the situation, but unfortunately, that was the most realistic way they could have told that story. Maybe someday, a young food delivery person/waiter will be able to fly into a city and have college-educated young female executives falling head-over-heels for him and his adorable accent, but I don't think that is possible now, except in fairy tales. And, "Love, Actually" is no fairy tale, for sure. The funniest part was that he chose Wisconsin! (It is so random a choice! :lol: )

Whatever do you mean, Kate? Guys with accents...:heart:*spaces out* What were we talking about again? (hee hee...)
...The funniest part was that he chose Wisconsin! (It is so random a choice! :lol: )

What? Wisconsin is the hub of the country! Of course he would come here. Especially during the cold, snowy winter months. I know you all are planning on flocking here during December/January.

Well, I suppose as a plight device, they did the only thing they could have done, really. But, I still find it a bit insulting. My feminist ways are too well ingrained to loose their hold so easily. :D Nice analysis, Kate. :shock: I'm in awe.

That's how I saw it also, Kate, but it seemed at odds with the rest of the movie, to me. Everyone seemed to have some depth to them, except for that bit. Even the people in the restaurant in Portugal with no lines (I think that's my favorite scene) had more depth-not to mention dignity.

Maybe they were looking for that contrast, though. I still love the film.

Yay! You've seen the light (through the blizzard-y mist)! That sun glare off the snow can be mighty harsh, I hope you are bringing a high SPF.
Ah ah! :tsk: We must try and use the hip Kiwi terms. Not Flip-flops, but Jandals
