Julia Roberts has a cute smile and is hugely likeable in another romantic comedy about a star and Hugh Grant that keeps on mumbling and falling over stuff so that he can get her in the end. It is one of those unrealistic romantic fairy tales Hollywood likes to make but that will never happen in real life as there is no way even a non-celeb would decide to blend into this dork of a Brit's family.
It starts off funny enough but by the time it ends, you'll have seen more cliches than the number of times Hugh Grant stammers in this movie. At times, the film tries to satirize the cliches but more often than not it ends up falling back into them for life support. Plus the ending is infuriating. Also, someone should have been murdered for how bad the soundtrack is. For real, it's dreadful.
'I'm also just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.' That line alone makes this one of the great rom-coms that one will find great pleasure in if one surrenders to its charms. Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant are both wonderful throughout with a lovely group of supporting characters. Easy to find fault with, but also very easy to love.
