Reviews (1) of About a Boy

a personal favourite - the best of British light and warm humour - About a Boy review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
09/11/2011

Perfectly cast and presented, a warm and sincere movie containing characters most English people know. I just love this film and have watched it a few times, it never fails to make me smile and feel good at least a few times every time. The score is perfect, absolutely perfect. Certainly the best Hugh Grant role I have ever seen and certainly the best of British light and warm humour.
