The Love Actually sequel, Red Nose Day Actually, was aired last night during the Red Nose Day event on NBC, hosted by Chris Harwick and it didn't disappoint us. The 15-minute segment of the romantic comedy was part of the event that has raised over 35 million dollars in donations.
Showing a glimpse into the future following the 2003 Christmas-themed movie, the sequel was filled with callbacks and gave closure to the characters that viewers fell in love with. Most of the original cast reprised their characters, with the exception of the late Alan Rickman, who passed away in 2016.
Here are a few of our favorite moments from the sequel:
1- The Prime Minister Dances To Hotline Bling- In the most hilarious scene, Hugh Grant's character, David the Prime Minister, dances to the Drake classic Hotline Bling. The best moment came when his dance was cut short as he hilariously fell down the stairs.
2-Sam And Joanna Are Getting Married- Little Sam (Thomas Sangster), is all grown up. In this adorable scene, he comes all the way from America to break the news to his father, Daniel (Liam Neeson), that he is planning to get married to his childhood crush, Joanna (Olivia Olson).
3- Billy Mack's Adorable Manager Joe Died Of A Heart Attack- While doing a radio show to promote his new book, Billy Mack (Bill Nighy) dropped the news that Joe, his manager from the original movie, had died of a heart attack. Mack didn't dwell on this fact for long, instead choosing to talk about the Kardashians he has slept with.
Red Nose Day is a movement that hopes to bring awareness to poverty issues among children. While the movement has since wrapped up, donations are still being accepted at https://www.rednosedayusa.org/
