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

Will is about to try to scale the fence a second time. Anna's right arm is on her hip in shots from the front and down by her side in shots of her back. See more »
No thanks, I'm a fruitarian.
I didn't realize that.
And, ahm: what exactly is a fruitarian?
We believe that fruits and vegetables have feelings, so we think cooking is cruel. We only eat things that have already fallen off a tree or bush - that are, in fact, dead already.
Oh, all right. Interesting stuff. So, these carrots...
Have been murdered, yes.
Murdered? Poor carrots. How beastly!

In his commentary on the DVD, director Roger Michell indicates that the song "She" is sung in "some territories" by Charles Aznavour, but it was thought that a French vocalist singing "in an English film about an American star" might be too confusing so they brought in Elvis Costello to do a cover version. The version shown in Thailand (and some other countries), and on the DVD issued there has Aznavour singing the song under the head credits. Elvis Costello's cover is used in the last sequence of the film, just like in the American and British releases. In addition, the Thai version finishes with "FROM THE HEART" (Performed By Another Level Written by Diane Warren) instead of "NO MATTER WHAT" by Boyzone. See more »
I guess sometimes I'm a sucker for a really good romantic comedy. Hugh Grant has such a great screen persona (at least in this kind of role). Extremely charming and amusing, he is. Rhys Ifans comes as close to stealing a film as a supporting actor can, he was perfect. Gee, did I mention Julia Roberts? I'm not really a fan, but I thought she was very appealing in the role. The ensemble cast was also very well put together, the writing fresh and very funny. Go ahead and see it, you'll like it.
