A 1999 RomanticComedy starring JuliaRoberts as staggeringly successful movie star Anna Scott who meets travel bookstore owner William Thacker (Creator/HughGrant) in the eponymous area of London and begins a somewhat rocky relationship with him. They want to be together, but her mega-stardom is constantly intruding on their happiness. Along the way to love, there’s plenty of quirk and British accents to add a little fun and flavor.

The movie is notable for taking several shots at show business, in particular how the movie business treats female stars.

!!This film provides examples of:
* BabiesEverAfter: Implied in the ending shot.
* BetaCouple: Max and Bella.
* BookEnds:
** The movie starts with a montage of Anna on the red carpet and ends the movie with the same.
** The last shot of the movie is in the place they kissed after the birthday party.
* {{Bookworm}}: William is this to an extent. He owns a travel bookstore and he also suggests that Anna do a movie adaptation of a Henry James novel. [[spoiler:Which she does]].
* BreathlessNonSequitur: "I'm sure you meant no harm, and I'm sure it was all just friendly banter and I'm sure you all have dicks the size of peanuts. Enjoy your meal the tuna's really good."
* CelebrityIsOverrated
-->'''Anna''': You know the fame isn't real.
* ChickFlick: With a distinct [[TheNineties 90s]] feel no less.
* CrashIntoHello: William and Anna met when she bought a book at his store, but they literally run into each other later that day in the street and he spills orange juice all over her.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Oh, Spike. Honey is this to an extent as well, but Spike just takes the cake.
* TheCuckoolanderWasRight / DumbassHasAPoint: Played hilariously towards the end. When Will tells his friends that he turned down Anna Scott, they all attempt to comfort him and consent that he made the right decision. Cue Spike's reaction.
-->'''Spike:''' ''(arriving)'' I was called. I came.
-->'''Honey:''' William was just telling us that he turned down Anna Scott.
-->'''Spike:''' ''(gapes at William for a moment)'' '''You daft prick!'''''
* DefrostingIceQueen: Anna.
* DisabledLoveInterest: Bella, Max's wife.
* TheDitz: Spike.
* FunTShirt: Spike has a few including "You are the most beautiful woman in the world... fancy a fuck?"
* HorribleHollywood: Anna says that Hollywood is a materialistic superficial world full of former boyfriends who mistreated her, painful plastic surgery operations to give her her looks, etc.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Spike and Honey.
* InformedAbility: Subverted. Anna is the most popular actress working in the Hollywood of the movie and while we never see her act very much, Anna herself claims that she's not very good.
* IWasYoungAndNeededTheMoney: [[spoiler:Anna took some pictures in her younger days that she very much regrets]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Spike.
* LapPillow
* MiseryPoker: After a dinner during which Anna meets all of William's friends, everyone in attendance competes for the last brownie by detailing the various ways in which they themselves are the saddest person at the table.
* MonochromeCasting: Aside two of Anna's co-stars, there are no racial minorities to be seen. What makes this stand out is that Notting Hill in real life is known for its black community.
* NiceGuy: Hugh Grant. As well as his roommate Spike.
* OldShame: [[spoiler:[[invoked]]How Anna feels about some risqué pictures of her. And possibly how she feels about her on-again/off-again movie-star boyfriend]].

-->'''William''': [[LeonardoDaVinci DaVinci]]?

* PrecisionFStrike: Honey's memorable reaction upon meeting Anna the first time: "Oh, holy fuck!"
* RaceForYourLove: William and his friends race around trying to find Anna before she leaves for America. Do they find in her time? [[spoiler:Of course they do]].
* SpaceClothes: One of Anna's movies has her as a retro-space babe in a flattering astronaut suit.
* StockBritishPhrases: It ''is'' set in England after all.
* TabloidMelodrama: As might be expected for a movie-star, the tabloids swarm all over Anna throughout the movie.
* TheThingThatWouldNotLeave: Spike the "masturbating Welshman".
* ThirdActMisunderstanding: Two misunderstandings - first Anna believing that William had betrayed her by going to the press and Second William overhearing comments Anna made while filming.
* TrailerSpoof: An excessively meta version; one trailer pretended to be for ''Film/AustinPowers'' (itself well known for this device).
* UptownGirl: Anna for William.
* {{What Happened to the Mouse}} The last of William's blind dates turns out to be a perfect match for him. After her scene, no further mention is made of her.
* WhatTheHellHero: '''"You daft prick."'''
