LOVE ACTUALLY ½

(HBO on Comcast) Writer Richard Curtis (“Four Weddings and a Funeral,’’ “Notting Hill’’) makes his directorial debut with an overstuffed romantic comedy that reworks — and reworks — the best bits of his screenplays. The results are often forced, but a cast that includes Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson, Laura Linney, and Alan Rickman makes it go down nicely.

MONTE CARLO ½

(HBO on Comcast) Selena Gomez, Leighton Meester, and Kate Cassidy wind up on the French Riviera after Gomez’s goodie two-shoes starts impersonating an heiress.

HEAVENLY CREATURES ½

(Showtime on Comcast) Set in 1953 New Zealand, this drama by Peter Jackson lets us into the claustrophobic world of two schoolgirls whose obsession with each other and alienation from everyone else lead them into a horrifying preemptive strike on adulthood. Potent, daring, invigorating filmmaking. (R; runs through March 13)
