Aroview: Divorced book merchant Hugh Grant falls in love with a customer who happens to be the world's most famous movie star (Julia Roberts, yes, essentially playing herself).
Both actors do what they do best in a tailor-made script by Richard Curtis, who tenders the same polished wit and off-beat sidekick characters that distinguished his FOUR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL. If it doesn't quite attain the dizzy heights of its predecessor, it's still undoubtedly the most charming vehicle for Julia Roberts since PRETTY WOMAN.
4 stars (Very Good) Possibly the funniest rom-com I have seen, with the unlikely geek-Grant falling in love with movie-star Roberts. Rhys Ifans and Dylan Moran are also excellent additions to the cast.~Tom H
2 stars (Good Try) Slightly funny in places, while slightly nauseating overall (possibly due to an awful soundtrack), it will possibly depend on how much of a Julia Roberts fan you are as to your opinion. Mine is that it's only slightly better than rubbish.~GenXGirl
2 stars (Good Try) Although its only a rom/com there are some good moments mainly through the casting of an excellent support cast. For better all round value though try "84 Charing Cross Road (1987)".~tubbs
