Love Actually is a 2003 Christmas romantic comedy written and directed by Richard Curtis. The film features an ensemble cast in a series of vignettes about a series of characters that are loosely connected, but have their own isolated stories.

Muppet Mentions

Curtis had attended Jim Henson's Memorial at St. Paul's Memorial in London and modeled the wedding sequence after the ceremony. He details his experience in the home video commentary track for the film (although he errs on the details concerning puppeteers and their characters):
