Overview
Von den Machern von „Bridget Jones - Schokolade zum Frühstück“ kommt jetzt der neue Komödienhit des Jahres: „About a Boy“. Diesmal geht es zur Abwechslung um einen Jungen.

Will Freeman (Hugh Grant) wird von all seinen Geschlechtsgenossen beneidet - er fährt ein schnelles Auto, genießt seine Affären und kann mit 38 ohne jede Verantwortung in den Tag hinein leben.... Seine neuste Taktik für den Frauenfang ist der Besuch von Selbsthilfegruppen für allein erziehende Mütter und Väter, denn das ist genau der richtige Ort um auf einsame Frauen zu treffen. Doch dann begegnet Will Marcus. Dieser ungewöhnliche Zwölfjährige bringt sein Leben völlig durcheinander - mit äußerst amüsanten Folgen.

Untermalt von dem fantastischen Soundtrack von Bradly Drawn Boy, zeigt dieser Film Hugh Grant („Notting Hill“, „Bridget Jones - Schokolade zum Frühstück) in seiner bislang besten Rolle. An seiner Seite spielen Rachel Weisz (Die Mumie) und Toni Collette (Muriels Hochzeit).
