A smart, sometimes pissingly funny romantic comedy that is also oddly unmoving and predictable in spots. show more
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. show more
It comes as a bonus that this romantic comedy is one of the rare pictures of its type that actually is about something -- the double-edged sword of celebrity. show more
This movie is truly delightful and the acting is marvelous, especially Julia Roberts. It should not be missed.
The critics and writers simply could not be more wrong on this one. \"Notting Hill\" deserves a much higher score. Even after watching it too many times, it still brings a tear when Anna says the final word of the story \"Indefinitely\" as the song \"She\" begins to be sung by Elvis Costello. The facial expressions of Julia Roberts were truly marvelous throughout the movie. Hugh Grant\'s interview scenes are amusing, the pair\'s arrival at the birthday party was beautifully directed and Bernie\'s questions were brilliantly delivered, the confrontation in the restaurant was hilarious and the final press conference in the Savoy Hotel could not have been better scripted. If you have not seen it, see ut at least once. It is one of the most delightful romantic comedies every written and performed. Thornton Clark
