Notting Hill

Written by Richard Curtis, Starring Hugh Grant as a bumbling upper middle-class Londoner, who falls for an american beauty - sound familiar? of course it does its another one churned out by the Curtis factory line that for some reason is a huge hit all over the world.

This one has Julia Roberts playing a huge film star looking to escape the trappings who fortuitously meets Hugh Grants character, and they connect but things do not run smoothly. Standard stuff and not even the presence of Rhys Ifans can take this away from the comfortable mannered upper class nonsense that the English cinema wants to portray to the rest of the world. Who says romance is dead?
