The colorful cast brings it all home, and the film has become something of a minor classic in its genre.

A perky, funny ensemble comedy that perversely pushes its great cast out of the way so Andie MacDowell can snooze on center-stage.
| Original Score: 3/5

If ever a film resembled a wedding cake it is Four Weddings and a Funeral, a multi-tiered confection with a romantic spirit and an enchantingly pretty veneer.

The comedy in the film is howlingly funny. But as the title suggests, there is also a funeral, which has some very poignant scenes.

The simplest and most honest expression of praise that I can offer Mike Newell's latest movie is that it represents two hours of solid movie magic.
