About a Boy : 4 of 5
I didn't actually see this in the theater, but I recently watched it on iControl, so I guess that deserves a movie review. I may have said before that I'm not a big Hugh Grant fan, since I can only take the same character over and over so many times. But About a Boy is thankfully different (most likely since it's an independent film). Hugh starts out as kind of "same old Hugh", but his character actually grows in the film, which is a fantastic development. Hugh plays a shallow guy with lots of money who just fills his life with anything to kill time, but he is affected by seeing a chance to have a positive effect on a boy's life. I thought the message was wonderful and really thought-provoking - all of us need to constantly take a look at what's important in our lives versus what is simply "cool".
