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.Written by

At one point in the bookstore, there are three copies of a guide to Germany on the table next to Will. In one shot, there are three spines; in the next, two of the books have been turned around. See more »

Any horses in that one? Or hounds for that matter; our readers are intrigued by both species.

In the ABC airing, Spike's T-shirt to wear on his date with 'The Great Janine' says 'Let's Have Sex NOW!'. In the theatrical version the T-shirt says 'Fancy a Fuck?'. Also, some partial nudity is digitally covered. See more »
This movie is almost entirely character driven and it is great. It's very funny, positive and enjoyable. The story is very simple - classic boy meets girl (or vice-versa) scenario. However, Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts' outstanding performances propel this movie to greatness.
Hugh Grant delivers one of his best 'average, humble' guy performances in this movie. Many of his lines were some of the most witty and clever dialog I've heard in a while. Almost reminds me of how Jimmy Stewart could mumble lines and come off as brilliant.
Julia Roberts was sparkling as a somewhat forward but grounded movie star that one could relate to. It was pleasant to see lots of big smiles from Julia.
The other characters were literally 'characters' - bizarre, off-beat, odd-ball, goofy - but at heart warm and enjoyable to watch.
If you're in the mood for a good laugh and pleasant movie-going experience, this is a great movie to watch.
