Nine Months is the story of Samuel Faulkner (Hugh Grant,) a child psychologist who’s gotten her girlfriend (Julianne Moore) pregnant that turns his life into oblivion. Fearing the responsibility and the thought of raising a family, Sam gets advises from different people that led to one thing – he’s got to face the inevitable. Soon enough, he finally realized that it’s not just about him – but also his girlfriend, his child and the responsibility that comes with it. This was the first movie that I’ve seen from Hugh Grant and I was like less than ten then. Hugh Grant’s just extremely funny here and extremely charismatic as well. The story isn’t that much to chew on as it’s just clearly a flat out story but I guess the main selling point here is its actors. The actors esp Hugh Grant and Robin Williams are just hilarious. I guess, when the film makes you laugh – either the “good laugh” or the “ridiculous laugh” – there’s still a part of you that enjoys it. Nine Months was my childhood favorite, though not extremely good, watching it over and over – it takes me back to that place. If the movie ain’t worth a thing, I don’t think it would have that effect.
