Product Description

Hugh Grant takes the lead role as aimless, commitment-shy, thirtysomething Will in this adaptation of Nick Hornby's bestseller. Living on the royalties of a hit song his father wrote 40 years ago, Will drifts through life, moving from one relationship to the next with little lasting effect. But when he hits upon the new idea of dating single-mothers, he soon finds himself entangled with the suicidal Fiona (Toni Colette) and her 12-year-old-son Marcus (Nicholas Hoult). As he and Marcus gradually develop a friendship, Will begins to reassess the selfish life he has been living.

This is without a doubt my favourite of Hugh Grant's films. His character is not the most likeable guy but (in a reversal of what I have always felt he's done) he made me like him. The same goes for all the other characters too though, none of them are exceptional people, but as you get to know them, through the book or the film, you see how exceptional they actually are.
The story is lovely, the soundtrack is great and the book is so 'Nick Hornby'. If you haven't experienced any one of these three great items you're missing out.

Like the book, the film leads to apathy with Bridget, because she is always doing things which everyone could see themselves doing, even exposing one's backside on national TV!! You watch this film and end up skipping down the street singing the songs and laughing to yourself about the part with the pants!!
Great fun for both sexes, as you love Darcy, hate Cleaver and generally laugh until your huge pants are round your ankles!!
