Must know original film, Funny/clever, Riveting, Great staging, Great singing

See it if you'd like a clever parody of the film's many plotlines/chars. Gr escapism; non-tradl holiday fare. Talented cast, imaginative staging. Fun!

Don't see it if you've never seen the film (you'll be lost) or want meaty theater. LA is pure entertainment. Gr costumes. Fast 90 mins. Brite lights in eyes

Insipid, Great singing, Disappointing, Dreadful, Excruciating

See it if You want to support someone in the cast or crew. There is some great singing of some silly throwaway songs and lots of running around.

Don't see it if You have any fond memories of the movie, this show is not clever or smart in any way and will likely just ruin the movie for you.

"'Love Actually? The Unauthorized Musical Parody' Is a Rom-Com Roasting on an Open Fire: The 2003 British Christmas film starred Hugh Grant and Keira Knightley."

"This is a show that works hard to raise the level of lunacy, but the results are scattershot. It is telling that there is an appearance by Tiny Tim, a refugee from another Christmas show. The question mark seems to suggest 'Love Actually?' does not quite know what it wants to be."

"Now, New Yorkers who know the film…have a chance to see a streamlined (at 95 minutes) musical-theatrical spoof of the film, called 'Love Actually? The Unauthorized Musical Parody.' It's a lively, silly and well-performed romp created by people who seem to have done a lot of this sort of thing."

A Theasy Best Bet. "It's been said that parody is an act of love. The show's creators prove that with a loving send up of every last detail…The six-person ensemble is perfect…a welcome opportunity to poke fun at the cheesy movie that won us over when we were at our most vulnerable."

Score: 80% "Love Actually? is a scrappy and wonderfully messy parody that is full of amazing talent and is incredibly enjoyable for those who love or hate the film, but it is definitely made for those who are deeply nostalgic of the film."
