    This Hugh Grant vehicle has him play the title role (but not, in my opinion, the central role), a WWI-era surveyor who is tasked with measuring Wales' first mountain, which turns out to be 16 feet shy of being anything more than a hill. The Welsh village, led by a pub owner played by Colm Meany (great to see his name above a movie's title) rejects the idea and attempt to build an extra 20 feet before the surveyors (Grant and the criminally under-credited Ian McNeice) leave for their next assignment. So of course, they have to be delayed. What you get is a gentle comedy (not unlike, say, Waking Ned Devine) based, as it turns out, on true events. Writer-director Christopher Monger credits his father and grandfather for handing down the tale. Lovely, and while the perpetually confounded Hugh Grant gets his big romantic hero moment, etc., it's far more about the impious Meany coming together with the strict village pastor to mount a community project. 3 years ago

    I liked the movie, I watched while I was studying for my land-survey exam.
    Was worth my time.
