Benjamin Barry is an advertising executive and ladies' man who, to win a big campaign, bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. Andie Anderson covers the "How To" beat for "Composure" magazine and is assigned to write an article on "How to Lose a Guy in 10 days." They meet in a bar shortly after the bet is made.
Against the backdrop of aged has-been rock star Billy Mack's Christmas themed comeback cover of "Love Is All Around" which he knows is crap and makes no bones about it much to his manager Joe's chagrin as he promotes the record, several interrelated stories about romantic love and the obstacles to happiness through love for Londoners are presented in the five weeks preceding Christmas. Daniel's wife has just passed away, leaving him to take care of his adolescent stepson Sam by himself. Daniel is uncertain how to deal with Sam and his problems without his wife present, especially in light of a potential budding romance within their household. Juliet and Peter have just gotten married. They believe that Peter's best friend and best man Mark hates Juliet but won't say so to his or her face.

Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport.

This is one of my new favorite movies. I don't know how i have been living without this movie. A kind of original plot and an all star cast ,i mean, we are talking: Keira Knighley, Laura Linney, Hugh Grant, Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Rowan Atkinson, and TONS of other huge celebrities. This is a real heartwarming movie. Tons of humor and beauty for the whole family (well, if they are aloud to see it). All leading up to a great climax. And it shows some of the beauty that the world does have. And that love ACTUALLY is all around. I swear, if you don't see this movie, someone will kick you. Ask any one around. I was talking about this today at school and it was one of my teachers favorite movies. It also kind of redefines stereotypes and everything. Please, if you see one movie in your life, let it be this.
