Handsome And Hilarious: Comedies With Hugh Grant
Music And Lyrics
First you're hot, then you're not... and then you're Alex Fletcher. So when the sizzlingest tween queen on the charts asks the has-been '80s pop sensation to write her a song, he grabs for another chance at stardom. Problem: Alex can say it with music, but he sure can't say it with words. Enter Sophie Fisher, his beguiling if quirky plant lady, who has an unexpected green thumb for lyrics. Together, they go after songwriting success - and discover that if you want to write the perfect love song, it helps to fall in love.
With Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore at the keyboard and Marc Lawrence (Two Weeks Notice) directing, Music And Lyrics is a witty, wacky romantic comedy that faces the music... and laughs!
Two Weeks Notice
Attorney Lucy Kelson wants to save the world. Instead, she's choosing ties and interviewing prospective girlfriends for her handsome and hapless billionaire boss George Wade. Is this why she got a Harvard Law degree? Lucy's fed up, so she submits her notice. But Wade-with an assist from Cupid-has other plans.
Written and directed by Marc Lawrence (Miss Congeniality) Two Weeks Notice is "sweet, sexy, sassy fun!" (Bill Bregoli, Westwood One).
Mickey Blue Eyes
He walks the wawk. He talks the tawk. Noo Yawk is about to encounter a most unlikely mobster.
Hugh Grant plays dapper Manhattan art auctioneer Michael Felgate in this lively fish-out-of-water comedy romp. Eager to marry Gina (Jeanne Tripplehorn), the lovely teacher he's been dating for three months, Michael feels it's time he met her family. What he meets is the family. Gina's father Frank (James Caan) is a gangster, a juicer who extracts money for the mob. Now the squeeze is on Michael to use the auction house as a money laundering scam for dubious artwork...and plunging fumbling, bubbling Michael into a world where he must pose as a notorious wise guy called Mickey Blue Eyes. You'll call him hilarious.
An Awfully Big Adventure
Hugh Grant and Alan Rickman star in director Mike Newell's (Four Weddings and a Funeral) engaging comedy about a star-struck young girl lured into the grown-up world of the theater. From a crush on the company's heartless director to her first sexual encounter with the show's biggest star, young Stella Bradshaw quickly discovers what it takes to make it in the theater.
An intriguing blend of comedy and passion, this provocative story is a hilarious look at what really goes on when the lights go down.
