A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Although this film does show the pains of a man who cannot maintain a meaningful relationship, as well as a touching gay relationship, it also depicts many people who enter into sex lightly.
Violence & Scariness
No violence except an occasional slap on the face by a scorned woman.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this film revolves around the (dys)functional relationships of a man and his single, married, gay, and straight friends. It shows incidents of casual sex and somewhat graphically depicts and describes sexual relationships. Even though comedic, many women are negatively portrayed as emotionally unstable, dependent, and dying to marry. The film also includes a string of profanities as the hero – Charles -- responds to his inability to attend events in a timely manner. His foul language seems funny and endearing, rather than problematic. To stay in the loop on more movies like this, you can sign up for weekly Family Movie Night emails.
Is It Any Good?
Four Weddings and a Funeral marks one of the early high points in Hugh Grant's romantic comedy oeuvre. As in films such as Notting Hill and Two Weeks Notice, he portrays an irresistible flake with the perfect amount of English sheepishness. The film includes stellar supporting performances from Simon Callow (A Room With a View, Shakespeare in Love, Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient) and Rowan Atkinson (Bean, Johnny English). Overall, the film sports a fantastic supporting cast. Like many Grant romantic comedies, the limelight is generously shared with a bevy of quirky supporting actors. Four Weddings and a Funeral is a fine example of English romantic comedy.
