One movie, ten love stories, and like any episodic multi-character, intertwining storyline romance, some work and some don't. The most engaging are those involving the bachelor Prime Minister (Grant), his sister (Thompson) with the wandering husband, and the aging rocker Billy Mack (Nighy). Richard Curtis, already established as a worthy romantic comedy writer, crams in absolutely every possible love situation as if he may never direct again. The good is sweet enough to mostly offset the bad, but a less-crowded story would help.
