I think we can all agree that Hugh Grant has the lovestruck fool down pat. In Notting Hill, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Nine Months, and Love, Actually among others, he's milked the awkward Brit routine for all its worth, only occasionally switching it up to play a complete cad (American Dreamz, the Bridget Jones films). Only in 2002's About a Boy did he manage a rare balance between the two extremes, and I don't think he's given a more charming or completely fleshed-out performance to date.
