I read with amusement the comments of others. I bought this movie on DVD and have got it in my normal rotation (along with others I like). I thought that the pairing of Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock worked very well. I did not enjoy this movie for it's social significance, that's not what I watch movies for. If you enjoy adult humor and can appreciate the nuances then you will find this quite enjoyable. It is Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant at their best. Some of my favorite scenes include the one where Sandra Bullock has eaten too much and has to go to the bathroom while they are stuck on a bridge in New York City. Adding the music "Taking Care Of Business" was really a stroke of genius. The "Bobcat Pretzel" scene was equally funny. The interjection of the appropriate music adds much to the results.
