I don’t normally care for Hugh Grant, but this movie was not bad. I will point out that Sandra Bullock was one of the last remaining options for a female lead at the time this movie was made. The Grant-Bullock combo was one of the only remaining options that had not previously been tried. The movie was bearable, funny, and moved pretty quickly. This would not necessarily be a movie that I would recommend to a guy, but if it is suggested by your girl… go for it! Don’t be afraid.
