Storyline:

Will Freeman is a hip Londoner who one day realizes that his friends are all involved with the responsibilities of married life and that leaves him alone in the cold. Passing himself off as a single father, he starts to meet a string of single mums, confident in his ability to leave them behind when they start to ask for a commitment. But Will’s hope of a continued bachelorhood is interrupted when he meets 12-year old Marcus, in many ways his complete opposite.

One review

  • Seeing “About a Boy” was an enjoying experience. It was hillarious and heart-warming at the same time. It had good dialogues and likeable characters. Hugh Grant was playing a role I’ve never seen him in, and he made a great performance. Only one remark: it’s marked as a comedy-drama, but I have to say as drama it’s very good, but I didn’t notice many jokes, so for me there’s not a lot of comedy in it…
