The camera angles, the narrative (based on Mario Puzo's bestselling novel of the same name), the performances, the editing, the score -- at no point were these varied departments of filmmaking inharmonious.

We know how Notting Hill's journey is going to end even before it begins — on a romantic, happy note. Because that is embedded in the very nature of rom-coms — to provide foolish hope to lovers around the globe.
