Take a rom-com tour of London

Happy Valentine's Day! For some that means all the clich├ęs: card, flowers, chocolates, a romantic dinner with 23 other couples in a candlelit restaurant.

Radio Times, 14th February 2017

The second of Richard Curtis's romcoms, following Four Weddings, about bumbling good eggs and frightfully pretty girls. Hugh Grant plays a bookseller who pulls a film star (Julia Roberts) - it's amusing, in particular when Grant's character ineptly poses as a journalist from Horse & Hound at a press junket for a sci-fi movie.
