Movie Info

A temperamental London lawyer adapts to the challenges of fatherhood when he is left with sole responsibility for his infant daughter in this well-performed British comedy-drama. Richard E.

Grant and Mathis are charming, but the script is not.

Audience Reviews for Jack and Sarah

A sweet film about a man so inept at being a father, it?s verging on child abuse. Everybody say Awwww!

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.

Richard E. Grant at his smarmiest in a nauseating schmaltz fest that surely could only be of interest to menopausal women. Utterly hateful crap.

    1. Anna: All I'm saying is, if you'd like a couple of days off around the 22nd, it would be good for us.
    2. Jack: But she's not due until the 25th, Anna.
    3. Anna: Fine, I'm just saying things will be more manageable around the 22nd.
    4. Jack: All right. sure. I'll ask Sarah to check her diary and see if she can bring the birth forward.

    1. Jack: Do you want nipple pads or nipple shield or just the pads?
    2. Amy: Bastard.
    3. Jack: Okay, I'll get both. Flesh colored or white? [shrugs]
    4. Amy: If your father goes on this way, we're going to end up being a single parent family.
