    i loved the first 2 movies, i cant wait for the third! i wonder why hugh grant would be in the third one? i think theyve totally overdone the whole colin and hugh fighting over bridget scene. they should have left hugh out of this one. thats hard for me to say lol, hugh has always been one of my fave actors.

    I loved the previous two movies. I rather like Renee. She is a good looking woman.

    I really enjoyed the BJ movies (the first one more) love both Colin and Hugh (p.s. mandee did you see the movie, “Love Actually” with both actors in it too? fabulous.)

    Funny enough, I am not a Renee fan, but think she suits the role perfectly…

    joanne, is that the one with the different stories in it? i think it was based on 4 different people to be exact? if it was, yes i saw it and i really enjoyed it, its been a few years since i did see it so im not sure if its the one i am thinking of and the details are a little sketchy. i love both actors, they have amazing abilities and they are easy on the eyes 😉

    haha easy on the eyes for sure, especially Firth, have always loved him! Yeah, right movie you got there, I actually bought it as I feel it’s one I can watch over again and have every Christmas. There seems to be a lot of those Christmas movies out there with the interacting storylines and many are really good….
