Four Weddings and a Funeral

A group of friends, including Charles, Fiona, and Gareth, meet at a series of weddings in Britain. At one such wedding, Charles has a one-night stand with a glamorous American, Carrie, who vanishes back to the U.S. a few months later, Charles and Carrie meet and pass in the night again. By the time Charles realises he is in love with Carrie, she is engaged to Hamish, and that wedding goes ahead - but Gareth, one of Charles' close friends, has a heart attack and dies, so the next reunion is at a funeral.

After a while, Carrie and Hamish split up, Carrie having realised she is in love with Charles - but by this time, alas, Charles is on the point of marrying someone else. As Charles remarks, "Our timing has not been great." But at the altar, someone speaks up - in sign language.

Continuity mistake: When Charles finally walks through the vestry door to 'face the enemy' his hair changes from rather messy to nicely combed, then to messy again when he walks through the church. (01:40:55)

More trivia for Four Weddings and a Funeral

Question: Who is Scarlett? She appears to live with Charles, but not share a bed with him; IMDb refers to her as Charles' sister, but her, er, style of talking is so out of kilter with Charles and indeed all the others that it seems unlikely that she's related.

Answer: According to a deleted scene, she was found passed out drunk under the kitchen table after a party that Charles hosted and never got around to leaving. She's now his lodger, presumably paying rent and a share of the bills.
