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

I usually watch the trailer on Youtube to see if I like it before purchasing. Everyone's taste is different and this is why I watch the "movie trailer" rather than go by reviews.

The Film 3.5/5
Four Weddings and a Funeral was released in 1994 and was a breakout role for Hugh Grant. If you have seen Notting Hill, Love Actually or the Bridget Jones movies, you'll know that Grant plays similar characters in every movie. Writer Richard Curtis wrote all of those screenplays and understands what Grant can do. He typically plays eloquent characters who are a bit confused about what they want in life. He has great comic timing and plays his roles with a lot of charm.
The movie opens with Charles (Grant) late for a wedding. We see him dash around with his flatmate, Scarlett, and drive like a maniac to reach the church on time. He's the best man, but he's forgotten to bring the rings. This opening sequence is pretty funny and sets the scene well.
Almost all of the action takes place at the four weddings and the funeral mentioned in the title. We are introduced to Charles and his friends, and they appear at every wedding.Read more ›
Andie plays a very unhappy woman, Hugh plays a very insecure man and the others are just what they are; either flawed, plain, charming, arrogant or whatever. This film is well filmed and well written with funny moments, especially because of the performances. I'm not giving away those moments, just see this movie it is far better than most comedies coming out of American cinema these days, so enjoy!
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.
The film centres around the character of Charles, played by Hugh Grant, who sees his friends getting married (and in one case dying) which causes him to think about his own relationships and what the future has in store for him, while all the time making witty (and sometimes silly) comments on his friends' actions.
While Grant is undoubtedly the star, this is to some extent an ensemble piece and there are delightful performances from John Hannah and Simon Callow in particular. Watch out for the late Charlotte Coleman as well. Andie MacDowell is the American here, yet does not seem at all out of place in the curious world of eccentricity, class, and tomfoolery into which she is thrown (I can say this, I am English!).
The script is just brilliant, by Blackadder/Vicar Of Dibley writer Richard Curtis, and is another element that makes you want to watch the film again and again.
Finally, the film has one great thing to recommend it, and that is a sympathetic deaf character who does not appear to have been put in the film solely because of his disability, and who is served well by a script that neither patronises nor ignores his deafness.
