My Favorite Movies - "N" is for Notting Hill

"I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her."

I dare you to watch that scene and not cry. Go on.

We're back in London for Notting Hill, another of my favorite movies. What's not to love about this movie? It's got Julia Roberts, Hugh Grant, Hugh Bonneville...the list goes on.

I really enjoyed the banter between Anna Scott & William Thacker and I thought they were a good match. I liked Will's friends, they were his grounding influence and his conscience and even more special - they made Anna feel welcome. I always liked the way this was a reverse Cinderella story and how real and normal the whole thing played out like. I can picture myself exactly like Honey - expounding on how I would be best friends with Anna, even though we'd never met.

There's so much to love about this movie - like when William pretends to be a reporter for Horse & Hound magazine. And when Anna tells some rude, loud men off in a restaurant. And the brownie scene.

Definitely a must-see movie, if you haven't yet.
