About a Boy
My Rating:
(out of 5 stars)
3 Stars
About a Boy Poster
Primary Location: First Saw:In Theatre Saw at/with: at Showcase Orange
Rating: PG-13 Year: 2002 Category: Drama Comedy
Director: Chris & Paul Weitz Time: 100 min. Writer: Hick Hornby & Peter Hedges

Mine: Very nicely put together comedy/drama. Huge Grant plays a variation on the character that he always plays, but he does it very well. Very well written and expertly acted. The kid (Nicholas) does a superb job. A real departure for the guys who did the American Pie movies. Maybe a bit predictable.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Based on Nick Hornby's best-selling novel, About A Boy is the story of a cynical, immature young man who is taught how to act like a grown-up by a little boy
