Sponsored Tingles: Hugh Grant on W
W Network has a Hugh Grant run coming up for its Hooked on Hugh movie event (every Saturday night in January). Saturday, January 2nd starting at 6:30pm E/P it’s the premiere of About a Boy, followed by Love Actually at 9pm Eastern/Pacific.
Both are vintage Formula Hugh. And hysterical. And two of my go-to favourites. I saw About a Boy at a wonderful neighborhood theatre in Vancouver with my friend Erin. We busted our asses during the part when Toni Collette starts singing. And together with Marcus and the closing of the eyes, just thinking about it is a happy moment. About a Boy was quite beloved by the Hollywood Foreign Press. They called it Hugh’s most sensitive performance. Because most of the time in most of his other movies he calls it in.
Sometimes though, given the right environment, calling it in for Hugh yields great results. Like Love Actually. I love his line delivery here:
“Oooohhhh…would we call her chubby?”
And when he goes door to door his bodyguard always kills me.
Please. The entire movie is gold. Colin Firth, Emma Thompson, EVERYONE. Sigh. Click here. This one’s Greta. Instant happiness!
