    It is an ok movie, no more than this. Andie MacDowell sucks... But the british actors are good. 6 years 9 months ago

    I thought it was really good as well, even though I didn't really care for Andie McDowell's character.

    The humour was excellent.

    Hadn't seen Four Weddings and a Funeral since it came out, and while it put scriptwriter Richard Curtis on the romcom map, it somewhat pales compared to later films like Notting Hill and Love Actually. And I think it comes down to the character played by Andie MacDowell. As Hugh Grant's love interest, the fact that she only crosses paths with him at the five events in the title turns her into a bit of a cipher. Who is this woman and why does he fall for her (except for the romantic notion of "thunderbolts")? It's an interesting experiment, to run a romantic comedy plot without developing the heroine, but it ultimately fails. Where the film shines is in its presentation of a broad cast, whose romantic fortunes go up and down (but mostly up) over the course of the story. Like Grant himself, the characters have a great deal of charm, and unlike MacDowell, are usually immediate winners you can't wait to get a glimpse of at the next friend/family event. 8 months 2 weeks ago
