Why 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' and 'Notting Hill' are completely different.

He shot to fame with frothy Richard Curtis comedies but following subsequent turns in 'Love Actually', 'Bridget Jones' Diary' and 'About a Boy', Hugh Grant just about turned up for a series of much lesser rom-coms ('Did you Hear About the Morgans?', 'American Dreamz', 'Music and Lyrics'). 

In the 21st century his most passionate and high-profile role seemed destined to be that of of anti-press-intrusion campaigner - but recently he seems to be enjoying his time on screen again.



Hugh will soon be seen in a dramatic role in 'A Very English Scandal' and turned in what I think is a career best performance in 'Paddington 2' (Check out my review here). 

With that in mind, I thought it timely to revisit the charge most often levelled at 90s hey-day Hugh Grant - that he always played the same part, one that was essentially himself.

NOT SO! 

Here's why Charles ('Four Weddings') and William ('Notting Hill') are different...

  1. I love pretty much any film with Hugh Grant. He's just such a likeable actor. They should have a Hugh Grant feature in Google daydream and then I would never leave virtual reality. William and Charles are drastically different but also equally likeable.

  2. Funeral home staff are responsible for handling the body with the utmost dignity and respect at all times while your loved one is being prepared for the funeral. http://bestcoffinssellonline.mee.nu/important_things_about_funeral_costs
