Aibu to think that the only people who love Paddington, are the people who think 'love actually' is a great film?

Threenme Sat 11-Nov-17 23:11:18

Possibly... I love Paddington, I've watched love actually 1001 times!

Iamagreyhoundhearmeroar Sat 11-Nov-17 23:12:18

Nope. Dead wrong.

I like Paddington but loathe Love Actually. It’s in my top 5 worst movies ever. Interested to see if I am an anomaly!

Can’t stand Love Actually but really enjoyed Paddington.

Ds is asd and struggles to connect with tv / film characters but sat through all of Paddington and loved it. Also really loves Mr Bean. I think it’s something about the absurd he really enjoys, or that they are “outsiders” struggling to understand the world? We are looking forward to seeing Paddington 2 next week smile

ILoveMillhousesDad Sat 11-Nov-17 23:14:25

Okay. Iwbu. I'll take it.

Love Paddington, really don't like Love Actually. Sorry to rain on your parade.

Growingboys Sat 11-Nov-17 23:15:58

Not at all. Love Actually makes my skin creep, but Paddington is ace!

If by any chance you want to start a thread about how wanky the end of Love Actually is with the bee gees track on repeat let me know, I’d be right over there agreeing with you grin

Dd is dying to see Paddington but I think its the 'oh so British' thing that turns me off. The hugh grant 'fuckity fuck fuck' thing

The first time I watched love actually I hated it. Now I really enjoy it. It’s not the greatest film ever but it really makes me smile. I’ve not seen Paddington 1 but went to see Paddington 2 yesterday and it was a lovely easy watch that made me laugh out loud on a couple of occasions. Take them on face value, it’s not going to be the best film ever but they are a bit of light relief.

Hate Love Actually but have loved both Paddington films. Sorry, OP!

PinkHeart5914 Sat 11-Nov-17 23:21:59

I don’t like love actually, watched it once and I never intend on watching it again.

I love Paddington. He is a cute bear how can anyone look at him and not think Cute! My dc are too young for the cinema so I am going to make Dh take me to see the film

dantdmistedious Sat 11-Nov-17 23:23:16

Love Paddington. Never seen Love Actually.

ILoveMillhousesDad Sat 11-Nov-17 23:23:33

@ILoveMillhousesDad
With you on the Britishness thing.
Had a crap day .... can I borrow a feeling?? 🙂

Walnutwhiplash Sat 11-Nov-17 23:26:17

The complete absence of talking bears ruined Love Actually for me

Twoweekcruise Sat 11-Nov-17 23:26:46

Just came back from the cinema, absolutely loved Paddington 2, actually think it's better than the first and I loved that too. But must confess I am a fan of Love Actually but I make no apologies for that as I'm a sucker for a soppy film.

ILoveMillhousesDad Sat 11-Nov-17 23:28:19

Borrow my feeling over smile

PrivateParkin Sat 11-Nov-17 23:29:26

I hate Love, Actually and I love Paddington. Why do you bracket the two together?

Ttbb Sat 11-Nov-17 23:31:02

I like Paddington but his adoptive family are v annoying.

PrivateParkin Sat 11-Nov-17 23:33:39

Oops posted too soon. Have you seen the first Paddington OP? Because I know it is set in London, but it's a kind of fantasy London to me, I mean fantasy as in "another world" like Hogwarts or something, not like a Richard Curtis idealised London that's actually meant to be a real place where people live. IYSWIM?!

KC225 Sat 11-Nov-17 23:40:24

Love Actually is dire but Paddington is lovely

Gemini69 Sat 11-Nov-17 23:41:09

Love... Love Actually... Loathe Paddington hmm

Liiinoo Sat 11-Nov-17 23:41:49

I hated the first Paddington movie so won't go to the second one but I actually love Love Actually.
