Overview

This acclaimed British comedy centers on the intermittent romance between a charming if slightly bumbling Englishman and a beautiful American woman, who seem to always run into each other at weddings. Indeed, it is at the first of the title's four weddings that Charles Hugh Grant and Carrie Andie McDowell meet, enjoying a brief but fleeting connection. The spark is rekindled several months later, when they unexpectedly meet at another wedding. Unfortunately, however, Carrie has become engaged to another, a fact that complicates matters for them both. The story may seem simple, but the film is elevated by screenwriter Richard Curtis' ear for witty dialogue and a colorful supporting cast. Director Mike Newell's sympathetic attention to character keeps the proceedings believable, and prevents the film's more serious moments from seeming mawkish. These elements, along with Grant's star-making performance as Charles, helped the film achieve unexpected international success, including an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The rare romantic comedy that doesn't falter when it delves into more serious matters, Four Weddings and a Funeral is one of the most successful British films of all time, and for good reason. The movie introduced Hugh Grant's unique brand of bumbling English charm to millions of viewers, and marked Kristin Scott Thomas' first breakthrough hit. Director Mike Newell blends great laughs with unforced, non-manipulative moments of poignancy: the heartfelt recitation of W.H. Auden's "Funeral Blues" is particularly moving. Richard Curtis' screenplay is witty and fresh, bristling with great lines and well-observed details.

    Not too bad...

    The story was good, enough for me to buy the DVD, though the unimaginative profanity was a turnoff. If folks must cuss, can't they use a little intelligence in their choice of language?

    Love this movie

    This has to be one of the all time classic movies in my mind. I could watch it over and over and never get tired of it.

    The delightful British!

    This is a movie about love in itsvarious aspects, as experienced bya group of British friends. Thestory has laughter, sadness, warmth,and moves at an excellent pace. TheDVD was purchased as a gift toreplace the worn-out VHS tape, yes,it's that much of a favorite. Someof the language and a few scenesare R-rated. A picture not to bemissed.

    As You Like It

    Hugh Grant and Andie McDowell, who could possibly make a better cast selection for a love story that almost failed to culminate in happiness. Extraordinary look into British life. Great scenery and timing. Very enjoyable. Great cast overall.
