Four Weddings and a Funeral

Visible crew/equipment: When Charles and Carrie are in bed together after the second wedding, you can see a boom mike above the bed in the first shot. At first we thought it was an odd looking lamp, but it's gone in every other shot.

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)

Trivia: If you think the church where Charles nearly marries Henrietta looks familiar, that's because it's the same church where the Sheriff of Nottingham attempted to force Maid Marion to marry her in Robin Hood;Prince of Thieves-St Bartholomew the Great in London.

More trivia for Four Weddings and a Funeral

Question: Why wouldn't Charles' brother be his best man? Or is that not traditional in England the way it is in America? It's not mandatory but is certainly expected, unless the brothers are not close (which Charles and his brother are) or the groom's father serves as best man.

Answer: A groom can choose whoever he wants as best man. As you say yourself, it's by no means mandatory for it to be the groom's brother, even if they are close. In this particular case, it's possible that David felt that he ought not to be the best man, due to the difficulty that he'd have in making a speech, but, really, Charles was under no obligation to choose him.
