Overview

Along with 28 Days, the DVD of Notting Hill is one of the most satisfying and complete DVD packages for a romantic comedy. Starting with a widescreen, anamorphic transfer and Dolby Digital Surround and 5.1 Audio, the disc presents the film and its supplemental material in a lavish way that befits a Julia Roberts blockbuster. Extras like an entertaining commentary with director Roger Mitchell, producer Duncan Kenworthy, and writer Richard Curtis, production notes, and cast and crew biographies shed light on the making of the film and the people behind it, while the travel guide to the Notting Hill area, "Hugh Grant's Movie Tips" (which basically consists of Grant joking around with the crew, and the bookmarks that cue up the film's musical highlights capture Notting Hill's witty, romantic spirit and setting. Deleted scenes and the theatrical trailer round out this entertaining and substantial disc, which reaffirms that films other than special effects extravaganzas can make effective use of the format's extra features.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
Notting Hill not only featured a match made in 1990s romantic comedy heaven, but also used that star wattage to comment on celebrity absurdity. Adding a different spin to the American beauty-meets-British boy formula from Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994), the pairing of Hugh Grant's bookseller William with Julia Roberts' movie star Anna Scott becomes a humorously poignant commentary on the unreal life led by stars such as Roberts and Grant. Naturally the tabloid press gets in the way, as do Anna's diva tendencies, but William's down-to-earth, eccentric version of reality (complete with Rhys Ifans' scene-stealing roommate-from-hell Spike) ultimately wins a place in Anna's world. Roberts' low key performance and Anna's awareness of fame's ephemeral nature allow her to be more than simply the lustrous object of William's bumbling desire. Opening strongly the week after Star Wars: Episode 1-The Phantom Menace was released, Notting Hill went on to become the first of Roberts' two $100 million-plus summer romantic comedy hits (along with Runaway Bride), and breathed new life into Grant's tabloid-marred career as a wittily self-deprecating leading man.

Notting Hill is a funny, creative, and clever movie sure to reach all potentials. Hugh Grant couldn't have done a better job playing the shy under-achiever book salesman. Julia Roberts was phenomenal as a famous movie actress that actually reflects her attitude. This hilarious film is great for pre-teens to adults. Grade: A+ Rating: R Starring: Julia Roberts, Hugh Grant Recommended Age Group: Pre-teens to adults

This is Hugh Grant at his best (this and 9 Months) and Julia Roberts, as stunning as always! There is a lot of reality in this movie, like wanting to take back that silly little comment, letting an old saying slip out, and loving someone for who they are inside! You have to see this movie!

I am a chick and I love this flick! Notting Hill is a great movie. What is there not to love about it? Julia Roberts is great as the love interest, who is an actress. Hugh Grant is great as the owner of a barely scraping by travel bookstore. What makes this movie, is it happens in London, England which makes it even more romantic. It has a great song during the movie to portray passing of the seasons, "Ain't No Sunshine." Hugh Grant's roommate, Spike, is really funny in this movie, and in real life Rhys Ifans, is actually a Shakespearean actor. Overall it is funny and romantic. Two thumbs up.

Julia Roberts has been getting away with simply playing variations of herself since the days of Mystic Pizza. Her same shrill laugh (it's actually a barking shout)can be heard in any one of those forgettable roles from Flatliners to the Pelican Brief, and the academy-award-winning Brokovich character was Roberts again, only this time dressed like a trailer park refugee and spouting a little more anger and sarcasm than she normally does. God help us- Pretty Woman was such a smash that we'll never be rid of her. Unfortunately, when not playing one of those personal variations, she's lost because she honestly can't act. Take a look at her poor attempt in Michael Collins, and there you'll find someone out of her depth. The role was not difficult, just not a variation of herself (am I getting redundant?) Somehow, though, her limits serve her well in Nottinghill: For once, Roberts can be forgiven for being herself, because that's what the role calls for: a famous, over-paid, self-consumed, Hollywood celebrity. She even has a scene where she can boast about making $15m for the last movie- too realistic! I can see her gloating in the same self-satisfied manner in real life, so it's probably appropriate. Do notice, however: how Alec Baldwin's cameo portrayl of the male star counterpart later in the film is more tongue- in- cheek. He can laugh at himself. Back to the point, this isn't a bad movie. The script contains wit, and several scenes are charming, with more than a few real comedic moments. Enjoyable though it may be at times, though, it is ultimately doomed by its fairy tale ending. Had the scenario allowed Grant to meet simply a more common, ordinary girl, it would have been more apporpriate. His foibles in trying to find the right match would have worked just as well; his believable performance and those turned in by his strong supporting cast would also have been provided more substance. Of course, Roberts would then have to be cut from the film as well (remember-she can only do herself). Left as is, this movie just doesn't make the grade. Three stars for the nice attempt and a chuckle or two, but no more: save it for when you've run out of all the other "date-videos" at your disposal.

Notting Hill attempts to show how true love can blossom in impossible situations. The impossible situation involves a "sad act" British book shop keeper (Grant) who chances to meet a famous movie star (Roberts) from America. They have an instant connection--made hilarious by the appearance of Grant's unbelievably inappropriate and ridiculous "flatmate"--the conflict comes with Roberts' fame and her inability to commit to him. I love this movie. It reminds me of the power of love, and it is absolutely hilarious! My brother hates chick flicks, but he loves this movie.

In a world which is mainly dominated by action movies where someone gets thier head blown off every five minutes, it's nice to still find a movies which depicts the story of a shy English writer ( Hugh Grant) and his love afair with American Movie star (Julia Roberts).
