1994 movie directed by Mike Newell, written by Richard Curtis who also wrote for the Blackadder series and the movies Notting Hill and Bean. Stars Hugh Grant and Andie McDowell, with Kristin Scott Thomas and a cameo by Rowan Atkinson.

An extremely funny British romantic comedy which largely takes place at or during preparations for the weddings and funeral of the title. Many people I know who usually hate romantic comedies liked this one, and the IMDB has it rated at 7.2/10 (out of 6335 votes). (I hate Andie McDowell and yet liked this movie.)

An interesting tie-in is the book published of the script; the book contains the arguments between the British makers and the American studio on what American audiences will understand.
