  1. British humour at its eclectic best, a deliciously heady mix of dry wit and ribald farce.
  2. Elegant, festive and very, very funny. [9 March 1994, p. C15]
  3. Reviewed by: Rick Schultz
    Surprisingly charming romantic comedy.
  4. 88
    Possesses the rare ability to make an audience laugh (and laugh hard) and cry, without ever seeming manipulative or going hopelessly over-the-top.
  5. Reviewed by: Louis Black
    A romantic screwball comedy, one is as intoxicated by words, dialogue and characters as by love.
  6. 75
    The movie dazzles with its slick lines, but there's a situational intelligence at play too -- little vignettes involving minor characters are begun at one wedding and then evolve into major events at the next.
  7. Maybe you'll enjoy it, but don't expect to remember it ten minutes later, or even to believe in the characters while you're watching them.

    The players, who include Simon Callow, Kristin Scott Thomas from, Rowan Atkinson and Sophie Thompson, exude comedic brightness as they go about their gossipy, farcical, self-deprecating, sorry-about-that-old-chap, just-being-English business.

    The infectious charm and sunny goodwill of Four Weddings and a Funeral can so immediately buoy a soul ravaged by winter weather and winter movies.

    I didn't enjoy it me it is overrated. The plot is is not credible, and Andie McDowell performance was sooo dull! Perhaps another actress would have transmitted more emotion! Just a 5 because it is almost below mediocre. I wouldn't watch it again! Expand
