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

Although Bella is in a wheelchair and complains of the fact that her house needs ramps for her to get around, there is a step without a ramp leading to her front door. In one scene she is seen about to leave the house in her wheelchair, unassisted. See more »
Would you like a cup of tea before you go?
Orange juice? No, probably not... something else cold? Coke? Water? Some disgusting sugary drink pretending to have something to do with fruits of the forest?
Do you... always say no to everything?

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 »

An actress falls in love for a simple bookshop owner
For refreshment this comedy is good at all. The plot is very real, nobody can say that a movie star cannot love a simple man, perhaps this may happen even better than the love between an actor and an actress. The actress (Julia Roberts) was in fact looking for new air and trying to escape from the routine of journalists, photographers, critics and others. She was tired of all this circle and wanted something different. Hugh Grant, the bookshop owner, showed her modest life, good friends and other environment much better than the one of million US dollars. Congratulations to Roger Michell for this film that anyone can see several times, it has also excellent music with songs of two Bee Gees (Barry and Robin Gibb)and Charles Aznavour, congratulations once again to Julia Roberts, who is simply at present the best actress in comedy in Hollywood. Appreciation also to the work of British actor Hugh Grant, always very efficient.
