Four Weddings and a Funeral

In this new romantic comedy from Britain, we follow a group of eight friends as they race to arrive "vaguely on time" to four lovely weddings.  Specifically, the story revolves around Charles - a witty, attractive chap who, despite many romantic entanglements, has not found real love.  At wedding number one, Charles, played wonderfully by Hugh Grant, sets eyes on Carrie, played by Andie McDowell, and he begins to learn the strong emotions of the heart.

This film is absolutely hilarious at times.  Especially noteworthy is Rowan Atkinson as Father Gerald, the nervous young priest presiding over wedding number two.  But, the film's comedic aspect does not overwhelm the subtler theme of men and women celebrating the nuptuals of their friends and simultaneously searching within and wondering where their own hearts will lead them.
