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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

Very enjoyable. Get tired of death and destruction films so this is a film to relax with. Quality and sound in Blu Ray excellent. Would recommend.

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.
