LOVE ACTUALLY FACTS AND FIGURES

Domestic box office: $59.7 million (production budget: $40-45 million)
Critic scores: 64 on Rotten Tomatoes; 55 on Metacritic
This week’s darer: Heather Smith
Why did Heather dare Daniel and Corky to watch Love Actually? “It’s that magical time of year when every person checks into Facebook to share they are watching Love Actually. A true turd-fest full if cringe-y dialogue, vapid, horrible characters, and one of the more embarrassing dance scenes I can recall. It bewilders me that this movie has sustained such love through the years. It’s like Lifetime wrote a Christmas movie but could afford better actors. Merry Christmas!”
IMDB synopsis: “Follows the lives of eight very different couples in dealing with their love lives in various loosely interrelated tales all set during a frantic month before Christmas in London, England.”
