A story about this — 6 years ago
This was startlingly, bogglingly bad. The script is not only hackneyed, but contrived, and thus the movie had no chance from the outset. I LIKE Hugh Grant. I LIKE Drew Barrymore. But they were both left to flounder their way through craptastic dialogue. The pacing of the film was sluggish. I was totally disappointed. It really was probably in the top five worst films I have ever seen. The two redeeming features were the video clip for Hugh Grant’s character’s 80’s band singing “POP (Goes My Heart)” and the song that gets written during the film. Please don’t see this, especially if you liked Four Weddings and a Funeral, or Love Actually.
