Competent Four Weddings bandwagoner, 11 December 2006
Author: Framescourer from London, UK

A curious film. Patently chasing the golden goose formula of Four Weddings and a Funeral this comic film is replete with genuine tragedy, an American girl and a fairly top-drawer British cast. Indeed the film succeeds effortlessly when the actors have a reasonable chunk of script or scene to work with (with the exception of the mediocre Samantha Mathis). I also really enjoyed the fluid comedy, moving between the obvious and the surprising, equally well delivered by the ensemble.

The film falls down though in its rather piecemeal approach. There's a feeling, almost literally, of the film being put together as if by marketeering scientists, looking to maximise its impact. There any number of bizarrely framed shots and loose ends - the set piece is king at the expense of overall cohesion. 4/10 but, hang on, I was conspicuously aware of it not being written or directed by Richard Curtis, so 5/10 for avoiding clone status.
