Sika’s 100 Greatest Movies of All Time! 69. Four Weddings and a Funeral (2000)

August 9, 2011

69. Four Weddings and a Funeral [DVD] (1994)

Plot: Always the best man, never the groom. Charles (Hugh Grant) fears that he’s going to spend the rest of his life attending weddings without ever actually getting married.

Until he meets Carrie (Andie MacDowell).

She’s beautiful, American, and already engaged…
Also Starring: James Fleet, Simon CallowJohn HannahKristin Scott ThomasDavid BowerCharlotte Coleman

Directed by: Mike Newell
Written by: Richard Curtis
Length: 117 min

Budget: £3,500,000 (estimated)
Gross Revenue: $244,100,000 (Worldwide)

He’s quite engaging. She’s otherwise engaged. (tagline)

Review: Before he hung out with prostitutes in cars, and way before people realized that he could be quite tiring to listen to, and way WAY before he became the hero in bringing down News of the World in the “hacked phones scandal”, Hugh Grant made this hugely successful movie with the lovely Andie MacDowell..

Nerdiest Movie Trivia: Andie MacDowell waived a fee for appearing in the film, taking percentage points instead. This netted her an eventual $2 million, compared with Hugh Grant‘s salary of $100,000.

To be honest, it has been a couple of years since I last saw this movie and today I realized why. My Four Weddings and a Funeral DVD is missing…

And since I usually rewatch the movies on this list before I write my “reviews” I’m a bit lost here.

Favorite Quote: Father Gerald: In the name of the father, the son and the holy goat. Eh… *ghost*.

Okay, since I really don’t know what to say I have decided to keep my review Twitter-short and hope I get away with it. Starting below…now!.

A must-see british movie with both Hugh Grant and Andy MacDowell bringing their A-game.

Props to James Fleet and John Hannah in great roles.

Done! Did it give you a good understanding about the movie? If no, blame the Twitter kids I try to impress. Writing stuff in only 140 characters is hard to do but at least it made me look cool and hip.

Oscar Count:
Two Nominations:
Best Picture (Duncan Kenworthy) Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen (Richard Curtis).

PREVIOUS ON THE LIST: 70. The Green Mile (2000)
