"I'm sorry her dad's not here"
[because we can't follow through on the gag that you married Prince Charles so we'll just pretend you married someone who has since died]
"Yeah. Nor Scarlett"

RIP Charlotte Coleman.
Second watch highlighted a few niggles. For example, Curtis seems to have forgotten that John is Duckface's brother, and why would George the boor know Father Gerald when he wasn't even at Bernard and Lydia's wedding? His scenes in Four Weddings were actually at Angus and Laura's wedding!
Now, I am old and that's my excuse but who was that mildly cretinous best woman? Is that supposed to be someone I should know? (Edit: it's Thalissa Teixeira)
This interview with Andie MacDowell is a good read, specifically her frustration at Curtis' inability to accurately convey Carrie's motivations in the original film. Let's face it, he wasn't that great at writing leading women beyond elusive and enigmatic male-fantasy figures.
