  • Critic Reviews of "About a Boy"

    New York Daily News
    February 10, 2014

    Even people who don't usually like Hugh Grant will be charmed by him in the scrappy, slightly scandalous comedy About a Boy.

    New Yorker
    February 10, 2014

    The directors Paul and Chris Weitz -- the American Pie brothers -- have tried hard not to make a tearjerker, and at its best the movie is knowing and tart.

    February 10, 2014

    Mainstream comedies should all be this funny and tender and deftly performed.

    Minneapolis Star Tribune
    February 10, 2014

    Will is a flintier, more sarcastic and impatient character than we've seen Grant play, yet there's a core of decency about him.

    TIME Magazine
    February 10, 2014

    Hugh Grant hilariously redefines the word "playboy" in the first half of this film, then gets human, without losing his comic edge, under the influence of the title waif.

    Wall Street Journal
    February 10, 2014

    About a Boy is better than a feelgood movie, it's a feelgreat movie -- genuinely clever, affecting when you least expect it to be and funny from start to finish.

    Reel Film Reviews
    March 17, 2015

    ...a thoroughly average piece of work...

    People Magazine
    February 10, 2014

    If the story gets dangerously thin, Grant is pretty well flawless. And Collette, always good, is heartbreakingly believable.

    Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
    February 10, 2014

    About a Boy is truly a love story, with dialogue and a story line that's both pop and universally timeless, which is gold for moviegoers.

    Total Film
    February 10, 2014

    This is a pleasingly skewed Britcom that can be watched with mates or the other half. And, boy, is it funny.

    Radio Times
    February 10, 2014

    Genuinely funny and moving, this is both an endearing examination of masculinity and a challenge to male isolationism.

    Baltimore Sun
    February 10, 2014

    Grant's puckishness has become overly packaged; what's new about him here is his spiky hairdo. This movie is built on an actor as well as a character who is too intent to be on his best behavior.
