Notting Hill

Critics Consensus

A rom-com with the right ingredients, Notting Hill proves there's nothing like a love story well told -- especially when Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts are your leads.

    What a charming movie this is. This film and its pairing of Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant is right up there with the best romantic comedies of any time period, and it feels a bit like 'Roman Holiday'. Roberts turns in a fantastic performance, mixing the regal elements of her character with vulnerability, strength, and playfulness well. She hits all the right notes without overdoing it, keeping the feel of the movie light. Grant delivers perfect British witticisms and one-liners, and is highly lovable. His friends in the film, including his roommate (Rhys Ifans), are all brilliant and add humor and depth. There are also some nice scenes in the London itself. Certainly a target for cynics, but to me, sweet and enchanting.

    The weird bits and small quirks Curtis works into the screenplay are enjoyable (as is Julia Robert's performance) but the ever mounting cliches he also insists on drag the whole thing down.

    Like I've said in a previous review, all a romantic comedy needs is a tangible chemistry between the two actors and a clever script. "Notting Hill" delivers the goods. It's lacking in many technical standpoints and can get a little too sappy at times, but the characters are so alluring and the script is so witty that it overcomes the choke points of this film. I found myself laughing out loud at the humor and I found myself really caring to see more progression within these characters' relationships. "Notting Hill"'s a great romantic comedy that's sure to please all movie-goers.

    Movies that start off with a big full camera image of Julia Roberts would usually be automatically starting at a 3 star level but this one increased its numbers because of Hugh Grant. Yes he is a scoundrel and probably has oodles of personal issues but no one plays the everyman like Grant.
