They don't really make many romantic comedies like Notting Hill anymore--blissfully romantic, sincerely sweet, and not grounded in any reality whatsoever. Pure fairy tale, and with a huge debt to Roman Holiday, Notting Hill ponders what would happen if a beautiful, world-famous person were to suddenly drop into your life unannounced and promptly fall in love with you. That's the crux of the situation for William Thacker (Hugh Grant), who owns a travel bookshop in London's fashionable Notting Hill district. Hopelessly ordinary (well, as ordinary as you can be when you're Hugh Grant), William is going about his life when renowned movie star Anna Scott (Julia Roberts) walks into his bookstore and into his heart. After another contrived meeting involving spilled orange juice, William and Anna share a spontaneous kiss (big suspension of disbelief required here), and soon both are smitten. The question is, of course, can William and Anna reconcile his decidedly commonplace bookseller existence and her lifestyle as a jet-setting, paparazzi-stalked celebrity? (Take a wild guess at the answer.) Smartly scripted by Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral) and directed by Roger Michell (Persuasion), Notting Hill is hardly realistic, but as wish fulfilment and a romantic comedy, it's irresistible. True, Roberts doesn't really have to stretch very far to play a big-time actress who makes $15 million per movie, but she's more winning and relaxed than she's been in years, and Grant is sweetly understated as a man blindsided by love. Together, in moments of quiet, they're a charming couple, and you can feel her craving for real love and his awe and amazement at the wonderful person for whom he has fallen. The only blight on the film is its overbearing pop soundtrack, though Elvis Costello's heart-wrenching version of "She" gets poignant exposure. With Rhys Ifans as Grant's scene-stealing, slovenly housemate and Alec Baldwin in a sly, perfectly cast cameo. --Mark Englehart

I found Notting Hill fantastic - lovely acting, wonderfully written script, and beautifully directed and shot. It's great for curling up in front of after a hard day, because it cheers you up - it cheers me up anyway! All the actors are at their best, and it's so easy to get into and have a good laugh. Wonderful! Here's to more British films like it!

4.0 out of 5 stars A great romatic comedy 10 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
A great romantic comedy set in London. Hugh Grant plays a bumbling book store owner who falls in love with a Hollywood actress played by Julia Roberts. Their relationship stops and starts as Julia Roberts still has a boyfriend . A great film to watch with a partner on a quiet romantic night in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rom-Com at it's best! 17 Mar 2004
I've seen LOTS of romantic comedies, and this is by far the funniest and the most romantic!
If you're looking for an enjoyable break from reality then this is just the thing!
It has to be said that the extra features are nothing special but buy this dvd anyway!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Film! 2 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I really enjoyed this movie. It was so funny, and the acting from Hugh Grant(a brilliant actor!), Julia Roberts and Rhys Ifans was outstanding. There were some great jokes, and the plot was clever. I'm a great fan of romantic comedies, and this is the best one I've ever seen. Even funnier than "Four Weddings and a Funeral". Buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Notting Hill 24 Nov 2005
Poor old “Notting Hill”, this charming and entertaining film is far too often compared to “Four Weddings and a Funeral” and perhaps derided for another Hugh Grant “floppy haired bumbling Englishman” role when really it’s a fine and delightful film in its own right.
William Thacker is your average thirty-something Londoner, trying to make end meet running his own specialist travel bookshop in the Notting Hill area. His mundane day to day routine is well and truly shaken up when world famous actress Anna Scott visits his shop and purchases a book. Being the ultra-polite Englishman he is, William is far too well-mannered to draw attention to the gorgeous Ms Scott or be crass and ask for an autograph. When he bumps into her (literally) in the street only minutes later and spills a cup of orange juice over her he is only too quick to invite her into his house (the one with the blue door) and let her clean herself up. Gratified by both this charming and honest approach in contrast to the either bitchy or sycophantic way she is normally dealt with Anna is swept off her feet and ends their tryst by planting a huge smacker on the surprised William’s mouth.
What happens then is the wholly enjoyable if not wholly unlikely and wholly predictable love story between these two extremely likeable characters. The ups and downs are thoroughly entertaining and include many a hilarious scene, whether it’s the magazine interview for Horse and Hounds, Spike’s doorstep posing or William wearing goggles in the cinema. The story isn’t just about comedy though; the romantic scenes are finely crafted and have a poignancy of their own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hugh and Julie 1 May 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A film I love to watch as it is funny and caring. A good script that does not rely on nudity and swearing to make it interesting and funny. A film I enjoyed watching with my mother and my children.
