Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock are delightful in this frothy, funny romcom.
Grant’s a wealthy New York-based business tycoon who glides through life with hardly a care in the world. In every way, he’s the acceptable face of capitalism.
At her comically earnest best, Bullock is a community activist lawyer who, a short while after chancing into a top job with him, suddenly gives him two weeks notice to quit…
Will she really leave? Will they get to like each other? Will he stop knocking down buildings and help the community instead? Will it all end happily ever after? And will he start seeing things her way?
Of course, the plot is pure piffle, but the two keen stars whisk it up into something that’s quite special. A tonic.
