“Gracefully Funny”

published 24/01/2001

Fun acting, excellent timing, beautiful setting, l...

No smell-o-vision!!!!! Too smooth an ending.

I've been a fan of Brenda Blethyn's since I first saw her in "Secrets and Lies" (for which she received an Academy Award Nomination). I was even more enthralled with her performance in "Girls Night" which I also reviewed here. And then she appeared in her most startlingly different role as the...

So funny!! Martin Clunes is in it and he's funny

Drug use can seem too lax

“SAVING GRACE - THE MOVIE”

published 29/09/2003

British Humour at its best.

none

I have seen this movie over and over again and loved it more with every viewing and so I thought an op might remind some of you of an older film that still remains a classically British true comedy of our time. Nigel Cole directs this film and it stars Craig Ferguson, Brenda Blethyn and Thceky...

Wasted Old Ladies

Lacks some sort of je ne sais quoi

The plot: Blethyn's husband dies and leaves her with huge debts. She collaborates with the gardener, and the two of them hatch a smokin' plot to rescue her house and lifestyle from the ruthless debt collectors. The confusion: I found it really difficult to get into the story as I was distracted...

“Ganja a plenty”

published 28/04/2001

It's British

Bit far fetched

I really didn't think that this was my type of film. How would i like a film that invilved a middle age women growing pot for a living? Doesn't sound promicing does it, and yet i didn't see anyone leaving the cinema without a smile on their faces, and, isn't this generally the reason we go to the...

“Funnier if you're stoned.”

published 02/08/2000

Refreshingly unbiased and quite amusing

Naive

When her husband dies, formerly well-to-do Grace finds out that not only was he a crook but that he has also left her penniless and with massive debts. With eviction looming, she is at a loss about what to do until her pot-smoking gardener, Matthew, suggests that she puts her gardening skills to...

“Corker Of A Comedy”

published 30/11/2000

Vert funny, well acted, gorgeous scenery

none

This film is a delight to watch. From the opening sequences to the end you are simply rivetted to this hillarious story, which is beautifully filmed and features tremendous actors. Starring the talented Brenda Blethyn, gorgeous Craig Ferguson and dopey Martin Clunes as the druggie GP ?!?!? Left...

“Laughing my journey away”

published 11/07/2000

Very Funny

Slow to start

When I first saw a preview of this film on a trailer it looked very good and a film I would make a point of wanting to go and see or get out on video. To my delight while travelling on a virgin flight to the states, they were showing it on board the flight! It took a while to get started with the...

“Don't miss this hidden gem”

published 09/08/2000

Unusual story and actors

Little publicity

Saving Grace is a little-publicised film that came out quite recently, although it might have stopped showing now at the big cinemas because it's not a major crowd-puller. It's set in a cornish fishing village where a middle aged woman who has been recently widowed discovers that here husband has...

“Save Me”

published 15/08/2002

Good Acting and more than one meaning jokes

Rather good ending but more could have been done

Save me! I am the new Fan of Brenda Blethyn! Her Acting was outsanding in this B-rate film, I must admit It wasn't the worst film I've seen in my life I did rather enjoy it. It starts of with Grace Jones a middle class woman with a massive House in a small village who has just lost her husband...

“A bong for Europe”

published 07/06/2000

Absurdly funny

Most of the characters

It's an old story. Boy meets girl, boy dies of old age, girl discovers boy has left her bankrupt, girl attempts to make a killing by growing dope. Oh yes, and girl's friends (mostly pensioners) get totally wasted following huge marijuana fire. Saving Grace fits neatly into the gentle Britcomedy...

A film about drugs might not be for everyone, even...

It's a welcome thing to be able to say that this is a good British film. After the hell that was Circus, we sure needed one. The fact that the cast is so very good is as relevant to a movie as the quality of the script, and with the old hand Brenda Blethyn in a starring role, and she has...

Whoever came up with this absurd story may well have smoking some of their own subject. Grace, a respectable, well-bred leading member of the WI, is widowed and discovers that her late unfaithful husband has left her saddled with huge debts, a re-mortgage and no assets. However, her one talent is...
