Product Description

Product Description

Jack (Richard E. Grant) is a man with a highly demanding job and a wife who is about to give birth. After a tragedy makes him a single parent his life is completely upended. He decides to employ Amy (Samantha Mathis), an inexperienced young waitress, as nanny to Sarah, the new baby. Although she is brought in to help out in his life, Amy manages to complicate it further. Judi Dench and Ian McKellen co-star.

From Amazon.co.uk

The story of a father and baby daughter, 1995's Jack and Sarah is the best cinematic depiction of what came to be known as "the 90s man". No matter how bad things get we know Richard E Grant will eventually learn to get in touch with his feelings and express his emotions. Grant plays Jack, whose reaction to the loss of his wife during childbirth is initially complete rejection followed by an alcoholic binge. Jack's family coax fatherhood from him easily enough however and this is where the film's heart lies. Brushing away the bitter beginning, Grant's comedic performance in juggling life around newborn baby Sarah is often hilarious: the image of the child in a sock hat being carried in a padded envelope is priceless. Bouncing off Grant's acting are some terrific cameos from Judi Dench as his stuffy mum and Sir Ian McKellen as a convincingly inebriated butler. Samantha Mathis plays an American waitress who provides a twist to the tale. There's genuine chemistry between her and Grant, specifically when they are both around the outrageously cute baby Sarah. Written and directed by Tim Sullivan, this is clearly a very personal expression of the meaning of family. Although backed by lots of Simply Red songs, it hopefully won't be one that's too quickly outdated.

On the DVD: The ratio is confusingly stated as "Widescreen 4:3". Effectively it's an anamorphic 1:66:1 presentation giving a tad more edge than its video predecessor. Sound is in Dolby surround. The minimal extras are four repetitive TV spots and two theatrical trailers. --Paul Tonks

Starring Richard E Grant and Samantha Mathis, Jack and Sarah is the story of a lawyer whose wife dies in childbirth and he is left holding the baby. After a period of drunkenness and confusion Jack (Grant) comes to terms with his daughter and experiences the problems of a single father. Then he meets an American babysitter (Mathis) and they find romance... A very good film in all, with tragedy at the beginning combined with comedy through out. Richard E Grant and Samantha Mathis are excellent and there is absolutely nothing wrong with this film whatsoever.

Watch Jack & Sarah on a cold afternoon when you are bundled up and snug with a hot cup of tea in your favorite chair. The romance between two unlikely characters is brought to life by Dame Judi Dench, Richard Grant and Samantha Mathis in the perfect setting. I have yet to tire of this this story and enjoy everything about it - the setting, comedy, romance and even the tragedies.

Jack & Sarah is probably one of my favourite films. Richard E. Grant is perfect in a rather atypical role for him, and the chemistry between he and Samantha Mathis is palpable. Moreover, this is a film with real bite and weight, and in the end it is far more than a romantic comedy. It deals with bereavement, loneliness, parenthood, homelessness, love and much more besides. Grant is typically hilarious and is aided by the authentic and understated performances of an exceptional supporting cast: Judi Dench, Eileen Atkins and Ian McKellen being but a few examples. This is one for the collection.

Jack and Sarah is undoubtably one of the best films I have. The film takes you through an emotional rollercoaster. It makes you laugh, it makes you cry, and it warms your heart.

Now, not one for being sentimental I was a bit sceptical about watching this but my how i bawled. As a woman i have the excuse of hormones but I think it was a bit more than this. Superbly acted throughout and, although a little dated, it's a real "feel good" film - I had a feel good glow about me that you only usually get after eating a hot bowl of porridge. Great for snuggling up on the sofa to watch when it's cold, wet and windy outside.

a very good quality DVD. I had a video recording which was of very poor quality. I very much enjoy this production and I am pleased to have this excellent copy.
