Oh Baby What A Cast!

I watched this adorable movie, Maybe Baby with my oldest daughter today, because in her words it starred the trifecta of hot English Actors in Hugh Laurie, Adrian Lester and James Purefoy, all in one movie. Personally, I think Hugh Laurie is a great actor, but I am not blown away by his looks, and Adrian Lester is very nice to look at, and his accent is killer.

But I have to admit that James Purefoy is one handsome man. There is a scene where he recites a Shakespeare Sonnet to an office full of women and they all swoon and I was swooning right along with them. (somebody find me a fan, and quick) There aren't many nicer looking men on the planet, except for mrangelmeg of course. He has that smoky dark look; dark eyes, dark hair, I think he would make an amazing James Bond.

Anyway, back to the movie. It turned out to be a touching account of how a loving couple deals with the crushing intrusiveness of infertility treatment and the subject was handled with wit and empathy, and some crass commercialism. The end was a stunning testament to real love. I would highly recommend it.
