The Rewrite product reviews

Once upon a time Keith Michaels (Hugh Grant) was an award-winning Hollywood screenwriter, but divorce and a string of unsuccessful films have left him with nothing but bad debts and blank pages. So when his agent arranges a job as a guest screenwriting professor at a remote university in upstate New York, a desperate Keith can't say no.

Initially hoping to give minimal effort to actual teaching so he can focus on his next script, Keith unexpectedly finds himself becoming invested in his students' lives, including Holly (Marisa Tomei), a single mom looking to start her own new chapter.

Rated: M
Running Time: 102 minutes

Re-write is a movie that I've scored a brilliant ten out of ten for every aspect possible and indeed is a very true reflection of how much I enjoyed watching this movie. I mean, who doesn't love a good Hugh Grant movie! With a new born baby in the house I've been watching a fair amount of movies and t.v as I sit to feed my son so the opportunity to review this DVD was greatly timed. Normally any opportunity for sleep I get however means the t.v is off or the movie paused, however I am happy to admit that Re-write kept me siting in the chair despite any call for sleep! I just wanted to see what was going to happen next and I simply couldn't bring myself to pause the movie till later.

The main character in this movie Keith is played by Hugh Grant and that alone speaks wonders. As to be expected, Hugh Grant lived up to his role and did an outstanding acting job of playing Keith. Despite Keith's best attempts he is a failing screen writer and this in essence is where the movie starts. Having run out of options he accepts a gig as a screenwriting teacher at a university that's in a town which seems like its quite literally in the middle of nowhere. Being a teacher myself I felt quite connected to the movie here and felt familiar with the dedication that some of his fellow teachers displayed.

Keith is a far cry from the perfect teacher however and what unfolds is a somewhat dramatic yet comedy filled experience as he leads us through his journey. The rest of the supporting cast, featuring some other well known actors do a superb job of their roles and there wasn't a single character/actor that didn't fit the cast or live up to expectations. Quite possibly the biggest key factor for me is the fact that the story line which indeed is a journey of self discovery is totally believable and I was drawn into the movie. This movie also ties in a romantic story line as amongst it all Keith makes some serious fails and then eventually finds himself falling in love with one of his students.

Overall this was a movie that I totally loved and have already watched twice, more so I would happily watch it again too. I totally recommend this to others, a funny laid back movie that at the heart of it all ponders the truth about turning dreams into reality.
