    "About A Boy" is top of my favorite movie list. Best work by Hugh Grant and great casting with Toni Collete and Rachel Weisz (that's a sandwich I'd like to be in the middle of).

    GW Bush? Worst president EVER. By comparison, he makes me yearn for Nixon or Wilson... or Thatcher.

    Re: A+bout A Boy

    The "Joke" about our President G W Bush was not a Joke but a true story.

    I made the observation that "Hue Grant lost all his facial ploys like our President George Bush lost his habitual smirk" Hue needed to escape those cheeky looks and I think he did well.

    When running for President G W Bush was advised to be aware of a facial habit that could be miss understood. It was a playful light hearted smirk.

    Being a Bush supporter I didn't care either way but I could see how a voter who voted on minor details would care.

    I hope in the future voters will learn to vote on issues so those running for office will be able to focus 100% on issues. Mean while a number of us run about trying to figure out what is real and matters VS what is entertainment and illusion.

    Sorry For The Confussion.

    Steven B.
