A grocery store would sell this on its generic shelf: the brittle upper-class British cleverness is strictly standard issue.

The setup is too arch to support the movie's detour into poignance, though John Hannah does give a moving reading of W. H. Auden's "Funeral Blues."

As directed with a light touch by Mike Newell, there's little doubt as to where it is going or how it will be resolved. That's all right, since getting there is so much fun.

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.

Entirely charming ... and I half-expected to hate this flick.

The movie dazzles with its slick lines, but there's a situational intelligence at play too.

Overhyped, Overrated, Overdone...

Truly beguiling romantic comedy is one of the hardest things for a modern film to pull off, but a winning British team has done it in Four Weddings and a Funeral.

This is a decidedly lightweight film but well made and one that has occasionally very funny gags.

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

Four Weddings and a Funeral provides us with a taste of drama, a bunch of laughs and, most importantly, some restraint.

A British comedy that's classy and commercial -- and, most important, very, very funny.
