Benjamin Barry is an advertising executive and ladies' man who, to win a big campaign, bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. Andie Anderson covers the "How To" beat for "Composure" magazine and is assigned to write an article on "How to Lose a Guy in 10 days." They meet in a bar shortly after the bet is made.
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.

The park bench used in this film now 'lives' in Queens Gardens in East Perth, Western Australia. A local Perth resident anonymously donated the bench to the City of Perth and it now *really does* live in a beautiful garden that is locked at night. See more »
Spike manages to let himself out of the boot of Max's Peugeot 406 estate car when he gets out to stop the traffic, but in reality there wouldn't be any handle to open the liftgate from the inside. See more »
Did you know, and this is pretty amazing, but I once saw Ringo Starr.
Where was that?
Kensington High Street. At least I think it was Ringo, um, it could have been that guy from Fiddler on the Roof. You know, Toppy.
Yes... yes that's right, Topol.
Mmmhmmm. Actually, Ringo Starr doesn't- doesn't at all look like, uh, Topol.
Yes, but, he was- he was quite a long way away from me.
So it actually could've been neither of them.
Yes, I suppose, so.
It's not really a classic, anecdote, is it?

Not usually impressed with Romantic Comedies, i found this one strangely compelling. It really was a nice movie, littered with great characters, especially Spike played by Rhys Ifans (Hilarious).
The story demonstrates to the extreme that love can occur between the most unlikely of people, and the humorous portrayal of this, is both touching and realistic. And i mean realistically created, not necessarily true realism.
Worthy of your attention, this well written romantic comedy is a must for fans of the genre and is a good gamble if your not.
