Richard E. Grant (HENRY & JUNE), an engagingly off-kilter actor whose resemblance to a praying mantis grows more pronounced with each passing year, lends some eccentric charm to this rather dour romantic comedy. Grant plays Jack, an English lawyer who simultaneously
becomes a widower and the father of a baby girl (enchanting Bianca and Sophie Lee). His parents (Judi Dench and David Swift) and mother-in-law (Eileen Atkins) smother him with help and advice, which he ignores in favor of hiring a flaky American waitress (Samantha Mathis) as little Sarah's nanny.
Do they fall in love despite their differences in age, education and cultural background? Do you have to ask...
