Review of About a Boy - IGN
He's a scoundrel for love. Models are preferred, but he'll make an exception if he finds a woman intriguing enough. To sum him up, Will is a incurably shallow fellow with a keen knowledge of pop culture, a beautiful apartment, trendy furniture, fashionable clothes, an expensive haircut, a remarkable CD and DVD collection of coursea flat-screen TV and zero motivation to move beyond his state in life.
Really, he's quite content; which makes him the complete opposite of Marcus played by Nicholas Houlta gloomy twelve-year-old with inept social skills and the effrontery to impose on and bother other people. For that reason, it's fair to say that if you've read the book, you don't completely know how the movie ends.
The set up is undeniably amusing: Will dates a newly divorced single mother, who then breaks up with him which, to Will, is odd because it's usually the other way around all the while admonishing him for being a wonderful guy and admitting that the reason it won't work is because she's unable to comfortably move into a new relationship.
Now, Will, in his warped wisdom, figures the key to easy short-term relationships and emotionless ego-boosting breakups is to date single mothers. Where does meet a single mom? At a single mom's weekly support group. Fabricate a three-year-old son Ned and a story about how his wife left him so he can attend the support group.
The strategy works well, as Will is able to garner sympathy and understanding from the single moms, all the while compounding his lie ex: On one outing to the park, Will and his hopeful future single-mom girlfriend are accompanied by Marcus, son of Fiona played by Toni Collettewho couldn't attend but asked if Marcus could tag along.
At the park, Marcus feeds bread to the ducks, and then throws the entire loaf into the pond, accidentally killing one of the ducks.
When an officer inquires about the dead duck, Will reluctantly comes to Marcus' defense.
