Romantic comedy double. The hugely popular 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' (1994) established Hugh Grant as Hollywood's favourite bumbling Brit and garnered Oscar nominations for Best Picture and Richard Curtis' screenplay. Shy Londoner Charles (Grant) meets American Carrie (Andie MacDowell) at a friend's wedding and enjoys a one night stand with her. The next time they meet, again at a wedding, Carrie is accompanied by a rich fiancé, leaving Charles heartbroken. Never mind - with another wedding on the horizon, there is still time for him to pitch his woo and win the love of his transatlantic sweetheart. The film spawned not only a hit single for Wet Wet Wet with 'Love Is All Around', but also a best-selling poetry anthology, inspired by an on-screen reading of W.H. Auden's 'Funeral Blues'. Meg Ryan stars in 'French Kiss' (1995) as Kate, who is shocked to discover that her fiancé has fallen in love with another woman during a business trip to Paris and resolves to win him back. Arriving in Paris, she has a chance encounter with Luc (Kevin Kline), an annoying but sexy Frenchman who is searching for a missing necklace. Fate conspires to throw the pair together, and they go on an adventure across France, searching for Kate's fiancé and Luc's necklace.
