Starring Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts
Julia Roberts flashes her megawatt smile, Hugh Grant does his patented dithering English fellow bit and they're just as cute as two buttons in this winning romantic comedy. Anna Scott (Roberts) is a lanky, high-maintenance Hollywood movie star, while William Thacker (Grant) is the self-deprecating owner of a less-than-successful London shop. Anna wanders in looking to buy a book, and a bit of contrived romantic comedy nonsense later, she's agreeing to be William's date for a little birthday dinner for his flighty sister (Emma Chambers). It all goes so swimmingly well that disappointment must inevitably follow . . . and it does. Both Grant's and Roberts' fans will be delighted to see them in roles that play to all their strengths. They are quite charming in their quest to find "True Love" - William with his cautious approach to romance and Anna, who is "Just a girl" looking for Mr. Right !
