285 of 1001 Movies: Four Weddings and a Funeral (1994)
Summary: The movie centers on Charles and his group of friends throughout the duration of four funerals and a wedding. Charles is a good guy, but he's also a bit awkward when it comes to expressing his feelings. He meets Carrie at a wedding, and he finds out that if he really wants to win over love then he might need to become better about expressing that then. Carrie doesn't waste time though, and through four weddings and funerals not only does a lot change in their own lives, but the lives of those that surround them as well.
I can see why the movie is a charming one. For a time when the romantic comedy was thriving in the 80's and on, this movie brought in a new element with romantic movies. Not only was it trying to handle the two leads romance, but also the intertwining relationship of a group of people as this is all happening. It was like the Friends of movies for the time. I admire it for what it embarked on, but there was some heartstrings I wanted pulled that weren't. Then again I find the two leads personalities very unattractive.
