Product Description

Amazon.ca

A surprise hit and one of the highest grossing films ever to come out of Great Britain, this effortlessly enchanting romantic comedy finds confirmed bachelor Hugh Grant (Nine Months) attending weddings with his single friends as they all lament not being able to commit. Grant keeps running into an attractive American (Andie MacDowell) at these festivities and begins a long-running affair with her, even as he attends her own wedding, the funeral of one of his best friends, and his own pending nuptials. Featuring a spirited supporting cast including Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient) as the acerbic friend quietly in love with Grant, this touching and funny film with a mischievous sense of humor and some truly heartbreaking moments is destined to become one of the classic romantic comedies of all time. --Robert Lane

Yet another smashing British comedy. Yes . . . Yes . . . It would have been perfect if not for Andie MacDowell.
The movie carries on rather wittily (if not cynically) as seven friends: one pair of siblings: Charles and Scarlet; another pair of siblings, decidedly richer: Fiona and Tom; a pair of homosexual lovers: Garreth and Matthew; and a deaf man: David; attend four weddings (one being Charles'own) and a funeral with a particular air of skepticism.
Hugh Grant plays the main character, Charles, who in the first wedding is the best man, the tardy best man. During the reception, Charles falls in love with Andie MacDowell's character, the uncharismatic Carrie. That night the two "make love." The following morning is another wedding at which Tom is the best man (hilarious wedding indeed!) and Charles arrives late again. He finds Carrie's there also to discover that she is engaged to a Scottish "gentle"man, after which the two end up in bed again. Over the course of the movie, and after a considerable period since their last lovemaking session, Charles receives Carrie's wedding invitation and the gift list. She asks him to help her pick out a wedding dress, then accompanies her to coffee where she gives him the lowdown on her thirty-three sex partners. Charles actually attends her Scottish wedding (still in love with her). After which he decides to settle down with a woman who, for lack of a better word, stalked him after they dated. Carrie shows up, confesses her divorce to Scottish bloke, and her love for Charles.
In the end Charles denies his bride at the altar and lives happily ever after with Carrie after she agrees that she will not marry him.
Yes, it' just that empty. Only where Charles and Carrie are concerned, though!
MacDowell is just . . .

ok. i loved the british characters. they were funny, touching, and altogether sympathetic. i would have preferred kristin scott thomas's character as the heroine, but oh well. i loved their sense of humor, and at the same time, i felt their sadness poignantly, particularly when john hannah gives his elegy. i think i actually teared up a bit. there were many of these precious moments.
but leave the damaging factor to the american heroine. i'm an american, but i just could not and would not identify with andie mcdowell's character. she kept trying to give that mysterious elusive quality to the character and just utterly failed. rather than seeming elusive and aloof, she seemed more like a tease that just wasn't worth it.
don't get me wrong, i'm a huge fan of romantic comedies, but that also means that i like my romantic comedies to be perfectly executed. the casting diretor failed miserably when casting andie mcdowell. either that or the screenwriter just didn't want to be nice to his heroine. but then, i really think andie's character could have been much more sympathetic if a different actress had played it - maybe even julia roberts, even when i'm not exactly a fan. i mean, how could a casting director think that viewers would find andie's character more desirable than that of kristin scott thomas (i forget the characters' names). i was honestly smacking myself in the forehead crying, why, charles why?
i understand a lot of people did like this movie, and i admit that this movie had so many great moments. but i stand by my humble opinion that andie mcdowell, simply put, sucked.

I frequently watch Four Weddings because it's a marvelously funny and classy movie. Several years ago I would never have believed that Hugh Grant could be a serious actor, but now I regard him as an excellent comedic actor, something like Cary Grant. His persona is similar to Cary Grant's: the handsome, appealing, but socially bungling playboy never-do-well. I love this persona, and I'm reminded of Cary Grant's movies with Irene Dunne.They are so hilarious because Dunne has a razor sharp wit and can put Grant in his place with her retorts.
The cast of actors in Foour Weddngs is interesting because you have the upper class,the middle class, the intellectual, and the lower class represented. They don't mind mingling with each other, and they genuinely love one another. Hugh's lines are always funny, especially at the first reception. Another great moment of comedy is at the reception of Bernard's wedding when Hugh Grant is seated with old flames, and his indiscretions are brought up at the table by these former flames.
Four Weddings is very balanced because there is a thread of sadness about the oneliness of the characters' not being married coarsing through the film, especially Hugh's character.Also, the death of the ebullient Garret, provides a wonderful foil to what might have become a silly film. Kristen's character is also sad because she never finds her love because she loves Hugh Grant's character. I wish that they would have fallen in love, instead of Andie McDowell's character.
The film's music score is georgeous, also. Richard Rodney Bennett composed the music to Yanks, with Richard Gere and Lisa Eichorn. William Devane, and Vanessa Redgrave. Yanks is a great romantic movie.I highly recommend it, even if you don't think Gere a good actor.
I freequently watch Four Weddings, and I heartily recommend it those who haven't view it or to those who need a romantic facelift.
