Nothing rude about having an opinion about the crap he churns out that masquerades as entertainment, he is a typical luvvie who writes for luvvies.
Notting Hill was an abortion void of creativeness and charm.
I can't understand why so much bad feeling towards him. Both films mentioned are fine for what they are, neither are big expensive productions that rely 99% on special effects. I seem to remember that they wanted a big name for Four Weddings and got Andie MacDowell because she wanted to work with Richard Curtis. I would not be surprised if Julia Roberts worked on Notting Hill for less than what she would normally get in Hollywood.
Perhaps you can elucidate us in what you consider are good films that are not void of creativeness and charm?
