Season 1
Four Weddings and a Funeral

Critics Consensus

Despite an impressive cast and crew, Four Weddings and a Funeral falls flat, relying too heavily on genre clichés to offer audiences anything more than just another mediocre romcom.

Critic Reviews for Four Weddings and a Funeral Season 1

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (13)

Some of the pieces are there, but the satisfaction of seeing them click into place is missing. Characters meant to seem charming seem creepy, and decisions meant to seem whimsical seem destructive.

"Four Weddings" steadies itself, and forges bravely ahead - an unapologetic romcom that embraces all the cliches of the genre absent, at least consistently, all of its charms.

We'll have to wait until later in the series to find out who gets the funeral, but on the evidence of episode one I'd be happy for the Grim Reaper to visit any of them.

Its greatest problem is its pretension. [Full Review in Spanish]

If you want a heartwarming and fun show focused on friendships with Love Actually vibes, this will do nicely.

Sep 27, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

I hope this serves as the prototype for what we can come to expect from the genre.

Aug 2, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

This Four Weddings And A Funeral has so much heart, you can't help but fall a little bit in love with it. Even if you wish the show would step out of its comfort zone more often.

Aug 23, 2019 | Full Review…

It seems that the show's attempt to ride on the coattails of the classic rom-coms that came before it killed it having an identity of its own.

Aug 22, 2019 | Full Review…

With bland characters, slow pacing and jokes that land with a thud, one quickly longs for the flirtations of Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell.

Aug 16, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Hulu's remake of one of the most perfect movies in the genre feels more like an attempt to ride the "rom-com renaissance" train all the way off its tracks.

Aug 6, 2019 | Full Review…

Sweet, charming take on the '90s rom-com classic.

Aug 6, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Is Four Weddings and a Funeral novel or bonkers fresh? No. Does it revitalize the romantic comedy genre? Not necessarily. Is it harmlessly fun and frothy? Absolutely.

Audience Reviews for Four Weddings and a Funeral: Season 1

    The first time I sat down to watch this show, I planned on spreading it out over the course of a few weeks; however, I wound up watching it straight through in one evening, well into the night! I rewatched it at a slower (and more acceptable!) pace to catch the moments I undoubtedly missed. The show is clever, well-thought out, and incredibly touching. There were moments that made me laugh out loud - even on the second time through, the jokes made me chuckle! - and I found myself crying more than once. Mindy Kaling has done a phenomenal job creating a rom-com that showcases diversity on such a deep level - something that is often difficult for shows to do when it's clear that they've only included actors of color as some sort of superficial shield against allegations that the content is too white. As an academically-trained communication scholar who often quits shows early on because the tiny critic in my head incessantly bemoans the all-pervading triteness (and, ahem, whiteness) of popular shows and movies that have yet to make any original contributions to our seemingly endless landscape of shows and movies, I find myself craving more of whatever magic Kaling and her team threw into this show. I will admit, I haven't seen the movie, but I don't think that particularly matters. People often get caught up in the supposed "sanctity" of the original source material. It's a well-written show with memorable performances. So what if it strays from the original movie? New content can nod to the original (e.g. the scene with Andie MacDowell) while updating the story to be fresh and captivating in a way that is excitingly unpredictable and new. The plot twists were unsuspecting, and the connection between the characters - especially Maya (Nathalie Emmanuel) and Kash (Nikesh Patel) - were intense, passionate. While I tend to have my reservations about shows that wrap up nicely and then get a second season that squanders the magic, I trust Mindy! Would love to see the story continue and explore Maya and Kash's relationship.

    Si viste la película y conoces a Richard Curtis, es la serie que esperas ver, una comedia romántica con personajes bien construidos, un grupo de amigos cuya relación de amistad es muy fuerte y que determina gran parte del desarrollo de la trama y situaciones originales a los cuáles los personajes deben sortear haciendo uso de sus propias capacidades, pero también de la ayuda de sus amigos. El desarrollo de la historia se organiza en torno al conflicto amistad/amor y a pesar de tener algunas inconsistencias lógicas, logra llegar a buen término al finalizar la temporada, la fotografía de Londrés es impecable, la banda sonora responde a los desafíos dramáticos de la serie y las actuaciones son bastantes sólidas tanto en las situaciones más cómicas como en las dramáticas. Los guiños que hace a las otras películas de Curtis, son bienvenidas a quienes reconocemos su mano en sus distintas colaboraciones, sobre todo a "Love actually" y los cameos a los actores originales de la película están bien trabajados dentro de la trama. En resumen, una serie muy buena y entretenida, bien lograda en lo que refiere a sus aspectos técnico y dramático. Totalmente recomendable.

    This show was absolutely wonderful. My wife and I are stuck at home in Los Angeles like everyone else and decided to give this series a try on Hulu. We laughed, we cried and thought this was one of the most entertaining shows we have watched in a long time. The characters were likable and relatable (and emotionally mature! - what a concept for t.v.); the story-line was engaging; the plot kept us anxious to see each next episode but most of all - the show was entertaining. It was heart-warming and wonderfully entertaining. I've never had a rotten tomatoes account but when we checked to see if there would be a second season, we saw that the critics gave this show a low rating. They are idiots! I don't know what planet they were on or what show they watched but I created an account to make sure my voice was heard. This was one of my favorite first seasons of television in a long time. I hope this show gets renewed.

    I loved this show and was glued to it. I liked the cast and the cameos from the original movie. I was very well done and enjoyed every minute of it.

    This story is so capitivating and adorable and beautiful. It revived all of the butterflies I would get in my stomach when I would see a cute boy in high school. I haven't watched a rom com in years because I normally don't like them, but this one was so heartwarming. It made me feel like I'm in a Sara Barielles or Ed Sheeran song. Very highly recommend for anyone looking for a great feel good tv show, regardless of whether you like rom coms or not. So good.

    Wonderful take on the movie's premise. An absolutely important, real, and fresh representation of desi, lgbt, and Muslim people. I loved watching this, it's lively and optimistic and the supporting characters are *hilarious*. You can't help but fall in love with every character on the show, and you can't help but fall in love with love.

    Holy saccrine trying too hard. Appallingly cloying and cliche. Vapid models, not actors. Good shows get torpedoed, how did this make it to air, and with such a budget?
  • Oct 25, 2019
    it's an amazing modern retelling of a classic story!

    LOVE This show, characters, humor, emotions. Need another season! The characters are so strong it could go such a long way!
