The widescreen transfer, coupled with the inexpensive list price, make this a DVD worth owning, even with the limited extras.

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.
