Hugh Grant is a good comedic actor but has little dramatic range. This much is obvious from the mediocre 'Nine Months'. There is little humor in the script which would have been totally devoid of laughter were it not for Robin Williams. Williams almost singlehandedly saves the film and his energy lifts the suitably manic climax. But the rest of the film is a hard slog. I didn't find Tom Arnold funny. Julianne Moore is a fine actress but the script hamstrings her. One nice touch - the end credits, which are unusual and quite pleasant to watch. The film is watchable but dull, certainly not worth a trip to the theater.
