Notting Hill

Happiness isn’t happiness without a violin-playing goat,“ spoken by Julia Roberts in Roger Mitchel’s 1999 Brtitish romantic comedy Notting Hill.

Notting Hill is the sole reason why Hugh Grant was just so lovely back in the day. This charming film is perhaps one of my favourite “romcoms” of all time. Their relationship is simple whilst beautiful and it enforces the idea that movie stars may one day love me. Replace Hugh Grant with me and Julia Roberts with Matthew Goode and you would have the picture of my ideal life. Additionally, Hugh Grant goes undercover and impersonates a representative from Horse and Hound magazine in an attempt to see the famous Anna Scott (Julia Roberts) one last time. This scene still makes me giggle. This feel good movie is a must see for Grant and Roberts fans. If you hate this movie, then you hate happiness.

Below is the painting which inspires today’s quote of the day!

Anna was right. Happiness just isn’t happiness without a violin-playing goat

For additional happiness check out the Notting Hill trailer. Delightful

  1. OMG this was honestly my favourite movie for years, watched it a bajillion times.. love this quote ❤

  2. P.S. did you know the lil girl who’s at the press conference is a very young Mischa Barton?!

    • Yes I love little Mischa! She is also the dead girl ghost in Sixth Sense. That is even more bizarre. Glad you like the quote! It is totally one of my favourites!
