Critic Reviews of "About a Boy"New York Daily NewsFebruary 10, 2014
Even people who don't usually like Hugh Grant will be charmed by him in the scrappy, slightly scandalous comedy About a Boy.New YorkerFebruary 10, 2014
The directors Paul and Chris Weitz -- the American Pie brothers -- have tried hard not to make a tearjerker, and at its best the movie is knowing and tart.SlateFebruary 10, 2014
Mainstream comedies should all be this funny and tender and deftly performed.Minneapolis Star TribuneFebruary 10, 2014
Will is a flintier, more sarcastic and impatient character than we've seen Grant play, yet there's a core of decency about him.TIME MagazineFebruary 10, 2014
Hugh Grant hilariously redefines the word "playboy" in the first half of this film, then gets human, without losing his comic edge, under the influence of the title waif.Wall Street JournalFebruary 10, 2014
About a Boy is better than a feelgood movie, it's a feelgreat movie -- genuinely clever, affecting when you least expect it to be and funny from start to finish.Reel Film ReviewsMarch 17, 2015
...a thoroughly average piece of work...People MagazineFebruary 10, 2014
If the story gets dangerously thin, Grant is pretty well flawless. And Collette, always good, is heartbreakingly believable.Metro Times (Detroit, MI)February 10, 2014
About a Boy is truly a love story, with dialogue and a story line that's both pop and universally timeless, which is gold for moviegoers.Total FilmFebruary 10, 2014
This is a pleasingly skewed Britcom that can be watched with mates or the other half. And, boy, is it funny.Radio TimesFebruary 10, 2014
Genuinely funny and moving, this is both an endearing examination of masculinity and a challenge to male isolationism.Baltimore SunFebruary 10, 2014
Grant's puckishness has become overly packaged; what's new about him here is his spiky hairdo. This movie is built on an actor as well as a character who is too intent to be on his best behavior.
