5.0 out of 5 stars A Gem Of A Film!, 6 Jan 2008
This review is from: About Adam [2001] [DVD] (DVD)
I watched this the other night and am still smiling now. My daughter and I sat glued to it and it had laughs in all the right places. Kate Hudsons' accent was pretty good, not perfect but then neither is mine! Frances O'Connor was fantastic as the slightly dotty sister who always has her nose in a book. But the most oustanding performance has got to be from Stuart Townsend. He was brilliant from start to finish and had us in stitches.

The story is pretty simple...Lucy,(Hudson), is the youngest daughter of a typical Irish family. She's always flitting from boyfriend to boyfriend getting bored with them all very quickly. That is until she meets shy, sweet and perfect Adam,(Townsend). The story is told from the perspective of all the members of Lucy's family, all of whom fall in love with Adam! (Including her straight brother to a certain degree!!!)

Adam is a typical rogue in disguise and yet he manages to break with rom/com tradition and gets away with it! I was left hoping he would, and yet I should've been wanting his head on a spike for all he does. He's a true womaniser and it's amazing to see how he gets about without getting caught in the act.

I wasn't expecting too much of this film when I sat down to watch it but I was very pleasantly surprised and I will definitely be watching it again at some point not too far off. If you're a fan of typical rom/coms you may be disappointed because as I said earlier, this breaks with traditional rom/com rules and has the bad guy getting it all and getting away with it. I loved it, as did my daughter and I can't recommend it highly enough. It's well worth the watch especially if you're a fan of Townsend. Give it a go is all I can say!
