Well made and entertaining. A good story and well enacted, detected and edited

A typical Hugh Grant movie that continues to work even 15 years on. The pre-smartphone era was decidedly less busy socially! There were more times for human connections and also for exciting dashes to the venues to prevent calamities rather than instruct over the social network...

About a boy is a comedy that doesn't work according to the well worn formulas and hence it does not tire the viewer out. The entire cast lead by Hugh Grant is good and this is one of those few comedies that I least regret watching. Movies of this nature are not made nowadays.

A product of it's time, but About A Boy does deliver good performances and tries to be different unlike the usual chick-flick

You don't really care for the self-absorbed character Hugh Grant presents, but it's Hoults persistent character that helps him to care just a little for someone other than himself. Perfect soundtrack as well thanks too Badly Drawn Boy.

I was really intrigued while watching this movie. It really surprised me and I thought it was full of heart. This movie really made me like Hugh Grant as well.

About a Boy may be predictable and safe, but it compensates with enough funny, touching and sweet moments and features a mesmerizing performance from Hugh Grant.

"About a Boy" overcomes predictability with sentimentality, wit, and sincerity.

This One Is Okay But I Find It One Of Hugh Grants "Annoying" Movies..It Gets Boring After A While & I Found The Kid & Him Should Just Get It On Already! So Much Of Their Time Is Spent Sizing Each Other Up, So It Loses The Gist Of 'No Man Is An Island' Thing..

Even though it's Hugh Grant (again)

Island living until you realize that if you live alone, on an island... It's not living at all.
