We’ve all seen the movie (probably), we know all the filming locations (more or less) and we know all the lines from the film (unlikely). Now, the film Notting Hill has made a list of the cheesiest movie lines of all time (quite unsurprisingly – let’s face it, the movie is one big Richard Curtis cheesefest).
In a poll of 4,000 moviegoers, Notting Hill reached seventh place with its line:
I’m just a girl standing in front of a boy asking him to love her.
…as said by Anna Scott (Julia Roberts) to William Thacker (Hugh Grant).
