Hugh and C(a)ry

Notting Hill I enjoy watching, Four Weddings even more so; About a Boy was good and I really liked Love Actually, but I am afraid that Music and Lyrics with Drew Barrymore is another Mickey Blue Eyes where the Hugh Grant charm doesn't work.

Hugh is often compared to Cary. He is after all an Englishman who went to Hollywood er... called Grant. I am afraid that the comparison does not flatter Hugh. Sure Cary often played himself, but it is hard to believe that an older Hugh will be able to carry a film like North by North West or even Charade.
