WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

This is one of those classic mid 90s romcoms that shows just why we were all in love with Hugh Grant. Charles is hilariously relatable and unlucky. Carrie's character is well written even though she mainly serves as a love interest. Overall a great movie I would recommend to anyone looking for some lighthearted fun. Just be warned, like the title says, there is a funeral, and you will cry.

Stella Rumble Profile picture for Stella Rumble

The core cast of friends make this film a delightful and engaging watch. The film is both funny and emotional, and the use of time is unique without feeling forced. The chemistry between the group of friends (more-so than the sometimes tedious main love story) is what really makes this a fun and wonderful film.

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Washington Post by

A movie to cheer you up and on and help you feel that spring will, in fact, arrive before we are all too desiccated to enjoy it.

Washington Post by Desson Thomson

Screenwriter Richad Curtis (writer of the English "Blackadder" series) and director Mike Newell (who made "Enchanted April") keep things lively and entertaining; each wedding is garnished with its own distinctive mood and dramatic significance.

Chicago Tribune by Gene Siskel

A better film about love delayed than "Sleepless in Seattle." It's funnier, more credible, more bittersweet and the characters are a whole lot brighter. Naturally, it won't be as big a hit. [18 March 1994, Friday, p.C]
90

Los Angeles Times by Kenneth Turan

Not only do Grant, Scott Thomas, Callow and company handle the sprightly dialogue with aplomb, they are also adept at the doubletakes and befuddled looks that make Four Weddings both amusing and irresistible all the way through the not-to-be-missed final credits. [9 March 1994, Calendar, p.F-1]
75

San Francisco Chronicle by Mick LaSalle

With his crisp intelligence always a step away from collapsing into paralyzing self-consciousness, and his polished good-boy veneer often giving way to hysteria and vulgarity, Grant is a delight. [18 March 1994, Daily Notebook, p.C-3]

USA Today by Susan Wloszczyna

It's a clever, multitiered affair built around the title rituals, frosted with delicious characterizations and tasty repartee. [11 March 1994, Life, p.4D]
