Notting Hill was a rehash of the "Poor Little Rich Girl" motif, nothing more. I liked all of the actors in it, but I found their performances in that film two-dimensional and not representative of the dynamics they were capable of. Probably a case of poor directing. And after seeing the last couple of Hugh Grant flicks, I find him a poor substitute for the Cary Grant character they apparently keep hoping he'll morph into. (I think he lost his edge when he lost Hurley.) Another one to throw in the rubbish with Notting Hill is Two Weeks Notice. I'm hoping the others in Love, Actually will be able to act around Grant and elevate his performance.
