Hugh Grant. The ever cool looking Brit gentleman who continues to steal our hearts with his impeccable charisma and charm. The elegance he brings onto every single role that he essays makes him an irresistible force. He may not be the most skilled, versatile actor in America, but he gets the job done brilliantly, in his own way. And that, to me, makes him stand out from the rest. Comedy has been one of his strengths, and that, coupled with his flamboyant screen presence, has made him an instant pick for a rom-com lead. Throughout the late 80s and 90s, he has worked in quite a number of rom-coms, which established him as one of Hollywood’s topmost leading men.
However, he has also displayed his chops as an actor by stepping into roles that require him to shun his most popular image. Today, we’ve decided to take a detailed look at the oeuvre of one of Hollywood’s most popular, charming actors. Here’s a list of the top Hugh Grant movies, selected from his vast filmography. You can watch some of these best Hugh Grant Movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.
12. The Rewrite (2014)
It’s cheesy as hell, but maybe I’m a sucker for romance and Grant is one of the few actors who almost always manage to pull off rom-com lead roles with ease and grace. ‘The Rewrite’ isn’t the best of rom-coms we’ve seen and is most certainly not the smartest script ever written, but it has heart and Grant once again with his remarkable charm and elegance turns an ordinary script into an entertaining affair. The film tells the story of a washed-up screenwriter who starts working as a professor at a college where he meets the woman of his life. Though this might not particularly impress staunch cinephiles, it’s the kind of films romantic freaks would love to indulge in on a lovely Saturday afternoon.
