About a Boy

Your Reviewget this gear!

This movie was pretty funny.  It is a little hard to categorize because usually High Grant movies are romance movies.  There are parts of this movie that somewhat make it seem like a romance movie but it is a little more of a family movie and a comedy than it is a romance movie.  I thought the highlight of the movie were the times when Hugh Grant  was making fun of the boy's mom.  These were the parts that really made me laugh.  This was a typical Hugh Grant movie though, in a role where he is scared of relationships just like in 9 months.

Okay, this movie you just have to judge for what it is.  You can not judge it as a film or for scenery or any of that other stuff.  You need to watch it and compare the stunts in the movie to the stunts on the TV show.  In this movie I would have liked to have seen a few more interactions with regular people like in the opening scene at the car rental place.  But this movie is funny and the stunts will make you laugh, enough said.

What Planet are You From?

This movie has a pretty good cast with a not so good movie.  I thought that the idea was fine but I wasn't sold on Gary Shandling's performance.  I thought that if he was from a family without any emotion than he didn't do a very good job because it seemed as if he had much more emotion than the rest of the people from his planet.  I thought that Annette Bening was good as was John Goodman.  The movie could have been a lot funnier.

Big Man On Campus

This movie was so stupid that you actually can laugh at it. I guess this caveman guy falls in love with a girl and the story sort of makes it seem like you want him to be together with the girl but at the same time the guy that is with her is so sweet and he is friends with the caveman. It all boils down to the fact that the caveman is funny and this is the sort of movie that will probably be played over and over on comedy central and you will never know what it is called.

I thought that this movie was not that bad.  It was pretty good but not as good as everyone makes it out to be.  I thought that Nicholson put in a very good performance and their were some very comical parts.  Most of the comedy reminded me of the kind of comedy in Punch Drunk Love.  I thought that Kathy Bates and the soon to be son in law were also very funny.  But for the most part this movie was just a little too boring without any real climax point.  A man is searching for meaning and finds it in a very strange place.

This movie was not as funny as I thought that it would be.  I think that the girlfriend in this movie is just totally annoying and I keep seeing her in every movie.  I thought that Tom Green was not that funny but he did a much better job of staying under control than he did in Freddy Got Fingered.  I think he is much better as a supporting actor.  I really liked the cop in this movie I thought he added a good touch and a good cameo from the guy from Kids in the Hall.  Not a good movie to see in the theater but an OK rental.

Monty Python's The Meaning of Life

Although it doesn't get the fame as some of the other Monty Python comedy films, I find it to be as funny as any of the others.  I thought the scene where the teacher is screwing his wife and the scene in the restaurant with the fat man are absolutely hilarious.  I thought that their were also a couple of dumb scenes like the first scene.  But all in all this movie holds its own the Holy Grail and Life of Brian.

I thought that this movie wasn't much more than terrible. I thought that the whole idea was just idiotic and retarded. I think that the writer's of a movie like this should be shot. It may have been funny if the movie had some changes. Like first of all they should have just kept trying to kidnap this lady instead of pretending like Norm was kidnapped. When they found that they had lost the dog they should have just tried to get it back again. There is not really any funny parts to this movie.
