There is also the category of actors who didn’t get along on set but often these have ended up producing interesting match-ups in pretty great movies.Many years down the line, Tony Curtis said that his immortal words “It was like kissing Hitler” about smooching Marilyn Monroe in that they apparently called their love scene “the hate scene”.Hugh Grant, the star of the film, has been in a lot of movies, but this may be the one that makes him finally familiar to American audiences.He has a self-deprecating manner, a kind of endearing awkwardness, that makes you understand why a woman might like him - and why he might drive her mad while tap-dancing around his real feelings.
Even in the case of the central character, a likable, shy, perennial best man named Charles (Hugh Grant), we're never told what he does for a living.
Of course the film is British, and in Britain it is considered bad form to ask anyone what they do, so perhaps the film simply doesn't know. Some of them probably met at school, and others have married into their various families, and they all know each other, more or less.
Occasionally a new face pops up: Carrie, for example, the sparkling American girl who is a guest at the first wedding, turns up again at the second, and is scheduled to be married at the third.
But like everyone else, Olivia fights the uphill battle of balancing career with family and finding love, all the while doing her best to care for the township she calls home.
Based on best-selling author Debbie Macomber’s beloved book series.
