  • Summary: Anna Scott (Roberts) is the world's most famous movie star. William Thacker (Grant) owns a travel bookstore. When Anna and William's paths unexpectedly cross in the eclectic neighborhood of Notting Hill, romance is the last thing on their minds. This charming romantic comedy proves that love can spring from even the most unlikely of circumstances. (Universal Pictures) Expand

  1. The overall result is a romantic comedy that indulges fantasies, calms insecurities (can an ordinary bloke stack up?), and breaks and mends hearts with surgical precision.
  2. It's pure fluff, but as irresistible as cotton candy.

    A smart, sometimes pissingly funny romantic comedy that is also oddly unmoving and predictable in spots.
  4. The deft, hilarious Notting Hill finds Grant's dour-droll-deprecating affliction at its most dead-on.
  5. A smartly cast and consistently amusing romantic comedy.

    If you're looking for Julia Roberts (circa "Pretty Woman") playing, well, herself, and Hugh Grant (circa "Four Weddings and A Funeral") playing, well, himself, then you're in luck.

    Notting Hill offers another example of moviemakers consoling themselves about how tough it is to be famous while congratulating themselves on how down-to-earth they really are.

    This movie was duuuuummmb. It was long and stupid long looks at other characters that led to stupid innuendos that don't work until an ending that just died on the table. Expand
