Despite the fact that I describe myself as a “romantic comedy enthusiast”, I have not seen the 1990’s movie “Four Weddings and a Funeral.”
I knew there’s Hugh Grant in it. And that was that.
Now, all that I can say is: I’m in love with its 2019 adaptation and I’m planning on watching the original version as soon as the mini-series is over.
I’ve been having A BLAST watching this Mindy-Kaling-and-Matt-Warburton-created show week after week.
The show follows a group of American friends Maya (Nathalie Emmanuel), Ainsley (Rebecca Rittenhouse), Duffy (John Reynolds) and Craig (Brandon Mychal Smith, who played Sam on You’re The Worst!) who all moved to England and are trying to navigate romantic relationships in the midst of personal dreams, breakdowns and weird reality shows.
It’s cheesy, super bright, colourful and with cringy moments but it brings me so much joy.
I can totally see myself watching this over and over again whenever I need something fun and lighthearted.
It’s got its dramatic moments and just like the title implies, its deeply sad ones.
I love the diversity of the cast, I love how fun and ridiculous it is and… It’s just amazing.
Even the ending was great. It was so joyful, full of happiness, tears and another wedding.
Duffy and Gemma’s nuptials were PERFECT, I laugh, I cried… And they showed the passing of seasons like they did with Hugh Grant in Notting Hill! What a wonderful homage! Everything about it was amazing.
I KNOW I am going to watch this again and again whenever I’m feeling a bit down or I am in need of some cheering up.
I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did! Let me know your thoughts on it and… if, like me, you share my love for Craig.
