Red Nose Day Actually brings back the Love Actually people to the same place


Look you can yell all you want about Love Actually being overrated and not a good holiday movie, but you’re wrong, so just let it go. And now we get to see how things are going. Red Nose Day, the charity that raises money for children’s health by pulling major stars into doing things, is debuting the short film sequel to the film, Red Nose Day Actually. It’s a stupid name, but a charming way to raise money.

You can check out the trailer below for the film, which finds writer/director and Red Nose Day founder Richard Curtis, back at the helm. Looks like everyone is doing the same things they were doing before, but older. Well, everyone except Alan Rickman, who is dead. Of course his more depressing story line probably wouldn’t have fit in here anyway, plus Emma Thompson didn’t want to be part of it.

Anyway, no one can hate having more charmingly befuddled Prime Minister Hugh Grant in their lives.

The Red Nose Day Special, where you’ll be able to watch this, will air Thursday, May 25 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC
