WonderfulBy joannalear15 from Oxfordshire , 09 Jan 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Wonderful light hearted comedy. After watching the film, it left me in a very warm, smiley mood! Very easy to watch! Hugh Grant looks particularly young and gorgeous in it!

heart renderingBy Hayley from london, england , 17 Oct 2006loved this film so heart warming. marcus was played so well that your heart went out to him. loved hugh grant humourous as ever ne of his better films. My financee hated him until he saw this film.
I avoided this for too longBy jennifer claire from Ireland , 11 Oct 2006I loved the book and didn't see the film because Hugh Grant is such an appallingly bad actor I was sure he would ruin the film but in fact, althouh he is indeed hopeless the rest of the cast including the child, are fantastic.
As for Grant, he is mercifully dealt with by the director who has the good sense not to burden him with too much- the sets and the soundtrack do alot of the work for him and he at least does no harm.
In fact, it is in some respects better than the book.
Highly reccomended for just about everybody, I think.
Nice wee filmBy Linda Brackenridge from Glasgow,Scotland , 22 Sep 2006Better than I thought it would be.It was/is a nice, well acted film.
