British Humor is Ridiculous, but I Love It!
am 29. Januar 2000
Sometimes, I just don't get British humor. My English relatives love the jokes of their countryman -- sometimes I simply don't get it. But, the jokes here are universal. There are many scenes which are made up of very embarrassing, but very funny, everyday scenarios. The story is about Travel bookstore ownder William Thacker, played by Hugh Grant, who lives in London, England's posh, expensive, and very high class Notting Hill district. One day, he meets and falls in love with lovely American actress Anna Scott, in one of the best scenes of the film. (It involves a cup of orange juice, apricots soaked in honey, and "raisins" -- remember that word for one of the film's BEST lines!
And Richard Curtis knows how to write dialogue -- this man can think up some really funny one-liners! Some of the supporting characters were off-the-wall (but not written spaztically -- a good thing). If you enjoyed the movie, check it out. It's worth the cash.
