Last night, we viddied About a Boy, a not-too-shabby Hugh Grant flick from 2002.
Give that lad a reasonable script, and all his cute, pained-face, blinky-poo wincing can be forgiven and even, in cases, lauded.
Such was this one.
The kid too, Nicholas Hoult, was a splendid little actor.
But blowing them all away was Toni Collette as the boy's mom.
She looked extremely familiar, and it took a visit to IMDB to reveal her as the mom ("She doesn't see dead people") in The Sixth Sense.
