She's the most dazzling, famous movie star in the world and he's the sheepish, fumbling proprietor of a tiny travel book store on funky Notting Hill in London. Can they fall in love?

The set-up has Julia Roberts, a glamorous American actress, meet Hugh Grant, a book-seller, in his shop - after which he inadvertently spills orange juice all over her T-shirt. She agrees to let him awkwardly clean her up in his nearby flat and - well, nature takes its course.

She's the impetuous aggressor, while he's wary. She's sophisticated; he's shy. She's agile; he's clumsy. She's direct, saying whatever she thinks; he's understated and evasive.
The review of this Movie prepared by Kate Goss

This romantic comedy is about an average man, William Thacker (Hugh Grant), who falls in love with movie star Anna Scott (Julia Roberts). Complications arise when William's room-mate tells the press that Anna is staying at his house. The press has a field day, and Anna immediatly leaves William's home, breaking his heart for the second time. Months later, Anna goes to Williams travel book shop and asks him to love her again. William responds with a no, in hopes of not getting his heart broken once again. William realizes that he has made a huge mistake and chases after her. Has William's poor decision ruined his life or does he regain Anna Scott's heart? This is one of the best romantic comedies ever.
The review of this Movie prepared by Sam

This boy-meets-girl movie is complicated by the fact that he is an "every guy" and she is a movie star. Despite complications caused by insane friends and family and the ever-present fame thing, this movie is romantic and funny and very, very feel-good.
