About a Boy

I managed to wade through the lines for ‘Star Wars 32, the search for more money’ to see ‘About a Boy’ last night.

It’s a riot. The entire theatre was roaring at times. Especially at the dead duck incident. Hugh Grant is the perfect ass. (and he has the coolest toys. A g4 cube with apple studio display (15″) and OSX. A perfect modern condo. A tt coupe.)

They captured the feel of the book just perfectly, even better than the rather good screen adaptation of High Fidelity (also written by the Nick Hornby). For one, they actually set it in Britain. And Hugh Grant carries more of the emptiness of being a nobody that just didn’t come through as clearly in High Fidelity.
