Just a Girl, Standing in Front of a Boy

Notting Hill takes place in the cosmopolitan marketplace of the same name. Where it follows a hapless Brit who runs a travel themed book store. Everything changes for him when famous actress Anna Scott walks into his shop. As you can imagine, there are a lot of challenges that come with dating someone famous. Especially if you’re just an ordinary guy. Being a romantic comedy, Notting Hill of course stars Hugh Grant. He’s appeared in many romantic movies, but this is one of his best. Anna Scott is played by the always charming Julia Roberts. It’s a role she was born to play. Julia Roberts movie star good looks, winning smile, and obvious experience make her perfect for the role. There’s also no denying how convincing their unconventional romance is. It makes me wish a famous actress would come strolling into my life, but a man can dream. The most famous quote in the movie (my review’s title) relates to how actors are people too. Something society tends to forget. Notting Hill is sweet, quite funny, and since many celebrities have married ordinary people, it could very well have happened in real life.
