But seriously, folks, let's talk about Hugh Grant

Carina Chocano offers an insightful appreciation of Hugh Grant, "an under-rated comic talent" who, for better or worse, appears to be maturing at a time when "demand for maturity in American comedy is low." Perhaps the actor should try slightly more serious roles? After all, he was exceptionally good in (here's that term again) the under-rated Extreme Measures. And he's perfectly capable of bringing a touch of gravitas to witty byplay, as he did in Sense and Sensibility and About a Boy.
