Notting Hill is on USA today. I remember actually having the chance to watch it a few years back in the theater when it first came out. Just as how I remembered it, its a sweet movie. I absolutely love the relationship of Hugh Grant’s bestfriend (who was his ex) and her husband. They so love each other. I also found the dynamics of his circle of friends very entertaining.
Unfortunately, no matter how sweet the story is, I have to admit watching it was quite annoying. I thought it was so sad that Julia Robert’s character kept torturing Hugh Grant. He’s madly in love with her and she would return the feeling. Then, she would go all nutty and break his heart. And as the movie goes on, this cycle would repeat a few times.
I kept wondering, why does he keep letting her hurt him over and over. Then I realize, he must really love her. Love’s forgiving, sometimes to the point of unbelievable. At the end, they end up together. It’s still a happy ending, my kind of movie.
Anyway, it’s sort of our love story (me and my hubby, but of course in completely different circumstances). But yes, I was the one who tortured him over and over. Which of course I now regret doing. But he, as the most wonderful man ever, kept forgiving and loving.
And just like the movie, a happy ending! I LOVE HIM!
