Saving Grace (2000)

NIGEL COLE

Bil’s rating (out of 5):   BB.5.  

One-joke comedy that benefits from the brilliant performance by its beautiful star .  She plays the widow of a seemingly rich man who after death leaves her without a penny in the bank and nothing to protect her from losing her beautiful country home. The solution is easy, of course: grow weed in your greenhouse. This she does with her reefer-smoking gardener (, who also co-wrote), but the trouble starts when she has to try and sell it all. Extremely funny all the way through, but the film’s last third is so flaccid it seems to undermine everything it’s been working for up until that point.
