A really funny romcom with a perfect performance from Hugh Grant.

Andie MacDowell is the guest he gets to know over the five big events, Kristin Scott Thomas is his friend, Simon Callow, John Hannah, James Fleet and Charlotte Coleman lend cheery support and Rowan Atkinson plays a bumbling vicar.

Richard Curtis’ script sparkles and, until The Full Monty, this international box-office hit was the most profitable British film ever made.

The fact that Grant is probably the only modern star who can say the old-fashioned ‘Gosh!’ with complete conviction is one of the main reasons his character seems so fresh and his bashful, hilariously hesitant way with words reaps comic dividends in almost every scene.
