There was another person on instagram who was struggling with the same things as me.

If there were ever any doubt that Hugh Grant’s charm is indestructible, his character’s best man speech in “Four Weddings and a Funeral” should serve as the final proof. There are only a few rules to follow when giving a wedding speech, like to avoid the word divorce and to withhold family secrets, and Grant breaks them all.
