Red Nose Day is a huge deal in the UK, to the point where its charitable magnetism can draw together the entire cast of your mum’s favourite British romcoms for a blockbuster reunion.
A few years ago, we got a Love Actually short, where we found out what happened to so many of our favourite characters and their super-quirky romances.
This year’s saw a star-studded reunion of the cast of Four Weddings & A Funeral, featuring the return of most of the cast of wacky characters, plus a new one: The Gay Agenda.
As Hugh Grant and Andie MacDowell’s daughter, played by Lily James, walks down the aisle at her own wedding, it’s revealed she’s walking towards the actual dream:
Alicia Vikander in a suit.
It’s all very adorable, and the couple are awfully good-natured as they put up with Rowan Atkinson’s priest Mr Beaning his way through the extremely heteronormative service, tease their parents about being “emotionally repressed” in their vows (power move tbh) and reveal the simple, lovely story of how they fell in love.
It also comes out that Grant and MacDowell’s characters never actually got married themselves – another 2019 twist for a mini-sequel to a film about a lot of super-traditional weddings.
It aired on Friday night in the UK, as part of the Red Nose Day telethon that raised over £63 million for Comic Relief.
The only complaint? It’s actually too short.
Once writer-director Richard Curtis is done with Yesterday, he needs to write the super mainstream gay wedding romcom we can take our mums to. After cutting the lesbian love story from Love Actually, it’s the least he can do.
