For all its cheesiness, Notting Hill delivers a very great deal of pleasure...
The ending is happy and ironic in equal measure, but most of the fun is just getting there with the right chemistry and compatibility.
t's an agreeably slick affair, with decent support performances, elegant camerawork, and several impressive set pieces.
An exceptionally guy-friendly chick flick.
Lately, romance comedies have expanded in running time, doubtless to compensate for their shrinkage in charm, and this is no exception -- it's way too long for something far too slight.
The film's romantic core is impervious to problems.
Not deep, but definitely funny--teens will enjoy.
It's a crowd-pleaser, all right (so were public hangings, once), but with all the emotional resonance of a tap on the knee with a rubber hammer.
Hugh Grant teams up with writer Richard Curtis for the second time, and we've got a winner.
The blatant self-piracy and marketing greed on display here suck the soul out of this almost likeable romantic comedy.
The most enjoyable way to read this movie is as an elaborate -- though good-natured -- practical joke on Julia Roberts.
Make no mistake: Even those who've previously managed to resist the Julia Juggernaut are likely to cave in after seeing 'Notting Hill.'
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.
Personally endeared and irresistible, Notting Hill is a perfect dream - a beloved story that begins with a coincidence that has evolved into something greater between an ordinary man and a prominent actress. Notting Hill is perhaps imperfect, but beyond reason, Notting Hill capitalizes on basic human emotional vulnerabilities. Most charming.
Wonderfully funny movie, that can be seen over and over again. Brilliantly written, with great characters, a delightful cast and perfect chemistry between the actors. It's got more memorable scenes than several dozen's worth of your average rom-coms put together. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that it's my favourite "Brit flick" of all-time. It also gives you a very fascinating insight to the complicated reality that comes with being a movie star. I have a very sincere love for this film and I'm not afraid to say it. It's witty, it's heartfelt and beautifully narrated. But above all, incredibly moving. Too bad they never made a spin-off with the character "Spike", because every minute he's on screen is an absolute riot. Anyway, if you're looking for a cozy feel-good film to watch with someone special, then this is truly the perfect pick.
Can the most famous film star in the world fall for just an ordinary guy?
Saw it again! Great romantic film! Julia Roberts nail her part and Hugh Grant in his best work yet to me. Watch it with your significant other and I promise you'll end up holding hands. Two thumps up! Notting Hill is totally implausible, happily improbable, feel good flick, does more to influence positive attitudes about people with disabilities than any all day sensitivity training seminar could ever hope to accomplish.
Every man's dream comes true for William Thacker, an unsuccessful Notting Hill bookstore owner, when Anna Scott, the world's most beautiful woman and best-liked actress, enters his shop. A little later, he still can't believe it himself, William runs into her again - this time spilling orange juice over her. Anna accepts his offer to change in his nearby apartment, and thanks him with a kiss, which seems to surprise her even more than him. Eventually, Anna and William get to know each other better over the months, but being together with the world's most wanted woman is not easy - neither around your closest friends, nor in front of the all-devouring press.
