I'd rather (re)watch Love Actually.

Better: It's a Wonderful Life hands down.

But I've watched Love Actually over a dozen times and I love it even though it's super cheesy.

It's a Wonderful Life, without a doubt.

I bought Love Actually years ago as a blind buy, and I absolutely hated it.

That's where I'm at too. :)

I'm very surprised. I thought it was universally held that Love Actually is okay at best.

I think it is, but somehow it is also very watchable. :D

No, I was wondering how much of a possible fond memories bias would be present. I gather that It's a Wonderful Life has been a favourite of TV showing at Christmas in the US (it was rarely shown in Australia).

P.S. I had no trouble picking Love Actually as my preferred.
