Update: Loved About a Boy, Hated Notting Hill so I turned it off like 1/4 way into it.

I disliked Notting Hill when I first watched it but got talked into watching it again by my (then) book club, and have adored it since. I really hated the Julia Roberts character first time and now I love her.

About a Boy is fantastic, but I also hated that one first watch and grew to love it.
