“This movie is brilliant, funny, charming, witty, touching. It has two problems, both of them related to the lead female character, Carrie (played by Andie MacDowell).u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe first is that the character is not written to be at all likeable. She is engaged to a rich older man she clearly doesnu0026#39;t really love (I think weu0026#39;re supposed to infer that sheu0026#39;s a golddigger) and cheats on him with someone she doesnu0026#39;t really care about either (Hugh Grant). Later we learn that sheu0026#39;s a slut and a homewrecker (see her appearance at wedding #4–donu0026#39;t tell me it wasnu0026#39;t conniving!). What would make us want this woman to win our beloved Charlie (Hugh Grant) (who is also something of a cad, but a loveable one)?u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eCarrie might not have been so unpalatable if theyu0026#39;d found an actress who could actually ACT to play her, but instead, they hired Andie MacDowell, who may be pretty, but is as stiff and lifeless as the scenery. Maybe she thinks thatu0026#39;s whatu0026#39;s called for in a British movie. I wonder that the people casting movies havenu0026#39;t realized that Andie MacDowell simply plays the same character in every movie sheu0026#39;s in. By the end of this film, youu0026#39;re incredibly frustrated. You want to adore this movie, because everything about it is so perfect, except for the fact that you hate Andie MacDowellu0026#39; s character with a passion and wish that she would die so that Charlie could find happiness with a woman who can act.”
