Four Weddings and A Funeral (1994)


Mike Newell directs Hugh Grant, Andie MacDowell and Kristin Scott Thomas in this romantic comedy that takes place over…. yep. 

Even though this is the antithesis of everything I stand for cinematically (posh luvvies, Andi MacDull, poshy poshness poshness, honky hell, cucumber sandwiches, poshos) it is submitted quite attractively. The vapid loves of annoying people who control the country retains some of the barbed wit of Richard Curtis’ earlier best (Blackadder and The Tall Guy), and proves a decent vehicle for Grant and Scott Thomas, who I guess cannot help the distasteful privilege they were raised in and that is glorified here.
