A nervous yuppie widower finds himself saddled with the responsibility of raising a baby girl in this quirky British comedy. Jack names the newborn girl Sarah after his wife who died at her birth. At first the loss of his wife hits him hard and for a time he drinks heavily, but soon he realizes that he must shape up so he can raise his baby properly. Fortunately, he is given plenty of support. Unfortunately, he is not sure he wants it. One of his supporters is his employer Anna, who is overtly lusting after him. The others are his snoopy mum and his meddlesome mother-in-law. To keep them at bay, Jack hires a clumsy but vivacious American waitress he met in a bar as a baby-sitter. She accepts the job, but knows nothing about being a nanny. Mayhem ensues as she tries to get used to her new job, Jack tries to get used to being a father, and both of them try to become accustomed to each other. … More

Critic Reviews for Jack & Sarah
A heartwarming, finely-performed movie
Grant and Mathis are charming, but the script is not.
Well-performed domestic comedy-drama
Audience Reviews for Jack & Sarah
A sweet film about a man so inept at being a father, it?s verging on child abuse. Everybody say Awwww!More
This affable romantic comedy-drama tends to wander from scene to scene and juggles a few more plot threads than it can handle; still, it never becomes predictable, and the surprising rapport between Richard E. Grant and Samantha Mathis (along with the excellent supporting cast) carries the day.More
Richard E. Grant at his smarmiest in a nauseating schmaltz fest that surely could only be of interest to menopausal women. Utterly hateful crap.More
