‘About A Boy’ (2002)

The first of many Hugh Grant star vehicles on this list, “About a Boy” was one of those rare romantic comedies that made critics swoon as much as audiences. This offbeat movie followed Grant as an aloof, immature man who looks for love after becoming friends with a wise young boy.

“About a Boy” maintains an outstanding 93-percent rating at Rotten Tomatoes, raked in plenty of money in theaters and even earned an Oscar nomination. Along with Grant, the impressive cast includes Rachel Weisz, Toni Collette and Nicholas Hoult as the boy.
