According to interviews, this is one of Hugh Grant's favourite roles. The sense of redemption that comes when Hugh's character realizes that he is not an island after all, and needs others, and must relate to and interact with others, is wonderful.

Notice actress Natalia Tena as Ellie, who goes on to play Nymphadora Tonks in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix!

This movie is by far my favorite of 2002!
Hugh Grant plays the funniest character of his career!
And Toni Collette gives an amazing performance!
I was so impressed with this movie when I rented it, I went right out and bought it and watched it again!
Will (hugh grant) is a good looking, womanizing, millionaire, loner who's main priorities in life are himself, buying CD's, watching TV, and making sure that his life stays exactly the way that he wants it. But, when he invents a 2 year old son in order to meet single-moms, he meets a 12 year old boy named Marcus. As Will tries to teach Marcus how to be "cool", Marcus teaches Will that "no man is an island". Suddenly, Will finds his door wide open to new experiences and lessons.
A great movie. VERY funny, entertaining, heartwarming, with a great cast of good actors!!
Watch it!

Very enjoyable film. A well done comedy as well as an entertaining commentary about modern life. Another very good adaptation of a Nick Hornby novel (see also "Fever Pitch" and "High Fidelity"). Hugh Grant is brilliant as Will, and it is a refreshing change from many of his previous movie roles. I prefer watching him play the handsome cad rather than the bumbling nice guy (v.boring).

Excellent comedy from the directors of " American Pie " and " " Down to Earth ". Starring Hugh Grant . By it's speed and meaning reminds me " Four Weddings and a Funeral ". If you did like that one , you definitely going to love " About a Boy ".
Hugh Grant playing Will , some guy who is doing absolutely nothing . Just watching TV all day , picking up CDs in the store , eating lunch and picking up girls later at night . Will living on his fathers "one hit wonder " song's money and his principle in life is very simple - one man is an island . He needs nothing , he wants nothing and he cares about nothing . But one day Marcus ( Nicholas Hoult ) walks in his life and things beginning to change . Marcus is a 6-7 grade kid , growing up with his single and depressed "hippie" mom . He is bullied at school and has no friends . He just started stopping by at Will's place and " hang around ", anyway Will doing nothing all day .
This relationship changed both their lives for better . And finally Will realized the real life he was missing . One man is never an island after all - you change other people lives , same as they change yours .

I love this movie. It's one of my favourites. It's also one of my favourite Hugh Grant roles - he plays this character very well. It's a great feel-good movie with an original storyline and very endearing characters. Perfect movie for Christmas. The novel on which the movie is based, by the same name, is also excellent and a great companion to the movie. The movie is from Hugh Grant's character's point of view, while the novel is from the boy's. I don't know any one who didn't enjoy this movie.

First and foremost, I want to state that Hugh Grant, as an actor and screen presence, deserves to be respected more. Some of the abuse this guy has endured, at the hands of the media and general public has been unwarranted and cumulative to the point where one of this generations most unappreciated talents is considering retirement at an early age.
The root of Grant's success and criticism is his championing of the romantic comedy. Once a well respected genre (think It Happened One Night - which swept all major Oscar awards in 1934) the "romcom" is only now reemerging as a force to be reckoned with, due in part by the success of When Harry Met Sally('84), Pretty Woman('90), Sleepless in Seattle('93), Groundhog Day('93), but more in part to the work of Hugh Grant.
The man has almost single-handedly restored the genre to its rightful place as audiences are beginning to appreciate the depth, quality and cathartic power that movies like About a Boy are capable of achieving. But his success has come at a price. Grant is in a unique predicament, not unlike most pop star idols, of being lionized by romcom audiences (largely female) and lambasted by the media and the average Joe six-pack for being too feminine and foppish and (pick your own). When I hear someone make an easy joke about Grant, I have made them myself, it is usually a cheap shot - he is an easy target- but more often than not, everyone who makes them sees a side of themselves in his charming smile and self-depracating humour that we all want to be a part of-this is the appeal of Hugh Grant and the romcom in genral.
So now we have Mr. Grant deliberately seeking out roles with more weight and "steel".
