Four Weddings and a Funeral

Four Weddings and a Funeral is a 1994 British romantic comedy film directed by Mike Newell and starring Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell.

It featured a crowd-pleasing soundtrack of popular songs, including a cover version of "Love Is All Around" performed by Wet Wet Wet, a single that remained at Number 1 in the British Charts for fifteen weeks and was the second biggest selling single of all time in Britain.

Warning: Plot details follow.

The film follows the adventures of a group of friends through the eyes of a frequently tongue-tied and social faux pas prone Englishman (played by Grant), who is smitten by the attractive American played by MacDowell. They keep meeting up at weddings (and the funeral of an ebulluent middle-aged gay man played memorably by Simon Callow). Featuring Rowan Atkinson in a notable cameo playing an inexperienced priest, and John Hannah in one of his first screen roles, the movie was appreciated by audiences for its witty script (written by Richard Curtis) and the considerable charisma of its actors, especially Grant and MacDowell. The film had box-office revenues of more than $260 million worldwide.
