"Can anyone name me a *good* Hugh Grant flick...."


  

          

I swear everytime I see a movie with him in it I immediately turn the station.

I have tried to endure a few of his movies but something about his acting is missing....there is no connection to any of his characters...his acting is *always* the same in each film I see him in.

He has become persona non grata for me when it comes to his movies.

He's definitely the least favorite actor I like to see.

as being "good Hugh Grant flicks." I've seen the ones most have mentioned and none, to me, qualify as being anything memorable....most of his flicks are good for watching once, if that.

I read the book before seeing the movie. I hated grant going in, and came out feeling he's the only actor on earth who could have played Will.

Good chemistry between the leads
Grant doing his awkward/asshoole schtick.

Not ENTIRELY predictable, I'd watch it again on a Saturday.
