Kate Leaver (Who’s A Good Dog podcast) and award-winning audio producer Arlie Adlington join Flixwatcher remotely to review Kate’s choice Notting Hill.
Notting Hill is a 1999 romantic comedy from writer Richard Curtis, starring Hugh Grant as bumbling Englishman Will and Julia Roberts as Hollywood actress Anna Scott who enters his life after a meet-cute involving orange juice.
Is Notting Hill the best rom-com? Debatable for Kate and Arlie yes, for Helen definitely not. Views were mixed, trite and overly sentimental and controversial for its ethnic cleansing of an area of London famous for its Caribbean carnival event or is the character of Anna Scott actually really funny and Notting Hill a quirky take on the regular guy dating a celebrity?
|Recommendability||Repeat Viewing||Small Screen Score||Engagement||Overall|
The scores were equally as divisive with Kate and Arlie giving straight fives for recommendability and Kobi and Helen much lower. Its two hours plus runtime was also a turnoff and resulted in low repeat viewing score to give Notting Hill an overall rating of 3.89.
