About a Boy

    9 March 2008, early evening

Shima and I watched About a Boy last night. It’s a Hugh Grant film from a few years back. Grant plays a dude who pretends to have a son so he can lay the mack down on vulnerable single mothers — hilarity ensues. About a Boy is pretty funny. It’s a quirky romantic comedy. It reminded me of Love Actually a little bit, in that the film isn’t quite as clean cut as your typical romantic comedy. The film also stars Rachel Weisz: Meow.

  1. One of my favourite movies all time. And not just because of Rachel Weisz!

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
