Why Tory MP is the father of all Bernards – Telegraph. Screenwriter Richard Curtis (Love Actually, Three Weddings and a Funeral, etc) nearly always has a character named Bernard in his films, a character who is treated quite badly, this is why.

    Thank you for the article on the Richard Curtis movies. I have a relative that just adores Bernard and the Genie. Now, I will have a sparkling conversation starter to share with her over the holidays.
