An ultra-famous movie star (Julia Roberts) and an ordinary
bookshop owner (Hugh Grant) fall in love despite their differences. Also with Hugh
Bonneville, Emma Chambers, James Dreyfus, Rhys Ifans, Tim McInnerny, Gina McKee, Richard
McCabe, Dylan Moran, Roger Frost, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Lorelei King and John Shrapnel. [2:03]
SEX/NUDITY 4 - Lots of sexual innuendo (including references to
masturbation, orgasms and prostitutes), some discussion about breasts and nudity and lots
of kisses (some are cheek-to-cheek). A man kisses a woman's neck and face and then runs
his hand down her bare back; we later see them talking in bed, presumably post-coitus and
naked but covered with sheets. A man peeks underneath some covers at a woman's bare
breasts (nothing is visible) and we see, for a split-second, a blurry shot of a nude woman
walking past the camera (it's impossible to distinguish any bare body parts). We see some
cleavage-revealing tops, a woman wearing a long dress shirt and a few bare-chested men in
their boxers or a towel. In one scene, a man wears tiny underwear and we see most of one
buttock (he poses for people, then poses in front of a mirror, grabbing his genitals); in
another scene, we see a man's buttock cleavage while he's wearing low-riding pants.
VIOLENCE/GORE 1 - One scene of reckless driving. A man wears a shirt that is
supposed to look like an alien in bursting from his stomach with blood surrounding it.
PROFANITY 5 - Two F-words (one is seen on a shirt), several anatomical and
scatological references, several mild obscenities, some insults and several British slang
terms. [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS - Fame, falling in love, relationships, risk-taking.
MESSAGE - Two people who truly want to be together will overcome any
obstacles and misunderstandings to do so; the pressures and demands of fame can bring out
the worst in someone.
