Critic Reviews for Jack & Sarah
Sparky playing, a generally sharp script and bright packaging add up to a neat little winner in the romantic comedy Jack & Sarah, a kind of After Nine Months London style.
As English as it gets, this romantic comedy about a one-parent family is not without a modest charm.
Grant and Mathis are charming, but the script is not.
It's a miracle on the level of childbirth that it holds together at all. But it does.
To its credit, "Jack and Sarah" eschews the standard cutesy-poo shenanigans found in movies where adorable infants run inexperienced adults ragged with their needs. Unfortunately, the movie has very little comedy to offer in place of such antics.
The screenplay, by Tim Sullivan (who also directs), is straight off the assembly line. But by casting against type, by finding an actor whose very presence insists he is not to be disregarded, the movie works in spite of its conventions.
Audience Reviews for Jack & Sarah
Completely harmless, likeable and sweet. It's eveything you'd expect from a British rom-com - post Four Weddings.
This affable romantic comedy-drama tends to wander from scene to scene and juggles a few more plot threads than it can handle; still, it never becomes predictable, and the surprising rapport between Richard E. Grant and Samantha Mathis (along with the excellent supporting cast) carries the day.
Richard E. Grant at his smarmiest in a nauseating schmaltz fest that surely could only be of interest to menopausal women. Utterly hateful crap.

|Anna:||All I'm saying is, if you'd like a couple of days off around the 22nd, it would be good for us.|
|Jack:||But she's not due until the 25th, Anna.|
|Anna:||Fine, I'm just saying things will be more manageable around the 22nd.|
|Jack:||All right. sure. I'll ask Sarah to check her diary and see if she can bring the birth forward.|
