    Grace is not as tightly wound as the best of its breed, but it is a genial way to pass the time.
  2. That they're English and elderly apparently makes their antics screamingly funny to people who would turn up their noses at similar humor in a film like "Scary Movie."
  3. Never quite rises above its one-joke situation.
  4. Wrings laughs from the antics of affable, eccentric villagers who cheerily break the law.

    A sweet, loopy British comedy filled with good actors and funny moments.
  6. Determined to be inoffensively tidy and cute above all else.
  7. Blethyn's lively acting and some visually amusing moments lend spice to this minor but engaging comedy.

    Coy, cutesy, sentimental, and shamelessly manipulative.

    We're left with a promising idea for a comedy, which arrives at some laughs but never finds its destination.

    I've shot people for less.

    Better in the end to skip it, and make Mother go it alone.
