Sean of the Dead - more comedy: spoof zombie film.
Four Wedddings and a Funeral - another, er, comedy (romantic). All British except for Andie MacDowell. (Same writer (Richard Curtis) and actor (Hugh Grant) as Love Actually and Notting Hill).
Hitch Hikers Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams. Famous in UK and US. Comedy.
The Lawless Heart. Drama. Bill Nighy (of Love Actually fame)
Braveheart - except for Mel Gibson (fake Scottish), most of the accents are British (Scottish or English). "Historical" film about Scottish fighting English, and wrong in several places.
