December 6, 2005
A pleasant little comedy with the soul of one of those old, much loved Ealing pictures of the forties and fifties but overlayed with a coating of Hollywood glitz.

Grossly overestimates the effects of Marijuana so that it can get the cheap laughs. But it is genuinely and consistently funny

[Blethyn] brings great heart to the role of Grace, injecting notes of surprising truth into what is otherwise a pleasantly nutty little film.

It's a feel good British movie ideal for gangs of middle-aged, middle-minded women on bored afternoons, and toxically saccharine to anyone else.

It's all fluff with the deeply imbedded message that no matter what happens in life, you have to deal with it and move on.

In trying too hard to convince us what good eggs his characters are, Cole creates a shapeless, dramatically unengaging movie.

It's a crazy plot, but it works wonderfully, thanks largely to Blethyn's terrific performance.

Saving Grace has a lovely Cornish setting and Blethyn to recommend it, but mostly it's a contact mediocre.

Dejará una agradable sensación de esparcimiento y sana diversión a quien tenga la suerte de realizar un buen 'viaje' de risas y buen humor.

The premise is a bit far-fetched, but Blethyn makes it fly, etching the timid, provincial character so deftly that her gradual transformation is deliciously funny.

Ultimately, all the jokes exploit the same tired premise, which is the spectacle of variously dotty and stuffy Englishmen and women getting stoned, wittingly and not.

The familiar, derivative feel is in part offset by a hard-to-deny level of appeal.

We're left with a promising idea for a comedy, which arrives at some laughs but never finds its destination.

Saving Grace has a charm that keeps you involved throughout.
January 1, 2000
It's a clever little tale that's bound to leave 'em, uh, rolling in the aisles.
January 1, 2000
Charming and entertaining enough to appease those who enjoyed the brand of humor previously found in the likes of The Full Monty and Waking Ned Devine.
January 1, 2000
A wonderfully off-kilter comedy about pot, persistence, and survival.
