This hugely popular comedy established Hugh Grant as Hollywood's favourite bumbling Brit and garnered Oscar nominations for Best Picture and Richard Curtis' screenplay. Shy Londoner Charles (Grant) meets American Carrie (Andie MacDowell) at a friend's wedding and enjoys a one-night stand with her. The next time they meet, again at a wedding, Carrie is accompanied by a rich fiancé, leaving Charles heartbroken. Nevermind, with another wedding on the horizon, there is still time for him to pitch his woo and win the love of his transatlantic sweetheart. The film spawned not only a hit single for Wet Wet Wet with 'Love Is All Around', but also a best-selling poetry anthology, inspired by an on-screen reading of W.H. Auden's 'Funeral Blues'.
Little did we know, back in 1994, that Four Weddings And A Funeral would have such ramifications. For Hugh Grant, it kickstarted a career. For writer Richard Curtis, it would enable him to put together films such as Notting Hill and Love Actually. And for British cinema? Well, it was a real injection in life, proving that the UK could make the kind of romantic comedy that Hollywood had proven itself expert at.
Revisiting Four Weddings And A Funeral, it’s hard to initially get over just how young and boyish Hugh Grant looks. It would be no understatement to suggest this was his breakthrough role, earning him a Golden Globe win in the process. Of course, what makes Four Weddings And A Funeral feel surprisingly timeless is that it happens in places where you don’t expect to see much in the way of 90s-specific technology. In short, weddings and funerals. It’s still a strong film, and it’s aged less than you might expect.
The extras, and there are many of them, are varied and interesting. The making of feature, for instance, was produced at the time of the film’s original release, and correctly predicts Grant’s subsequence ascent. But what’s interesting is setting that against the later, more wide-reaching look back, which digs a lot deeper. The interesting, entertaining commentary track is well worth a spin, too, for similar hindsight.
This is just what a good Blu-ray of an older film should do: present the movie strongly, and then surround it with interesting, honest supplemental material. It’s certainly what makes Four Weddings And A Funeral a good release, with a package of supplements that support the film, whilst acknowledging some of its bumps. More discs like this, please. --Jon Foster--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I watched this movie with my father. I think the movie would be better if it ended a little bit more sad. The film's camera switch is too montage. The plot is tortuous. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Ruby
