Format: VHS Tape
The only thing I really didn't like about this movie (and it's only a trivial detail) was the opening credits with this girl group in bridal outfits singing that old 50's song (which I can't recall the name of right now). Maybe it's just me, but I found it annoying. Others may find it amusing. Anyway, the movie itself is great. Julia Roberts finds out her best friend is getting married, but wants to break it up. That's the basic premise. The laughs come fast and furious when she takes off to break up the marriage. She ends up becoming friends with the bride (Cameron Diaz) and turning everyone's life upside down. It's a great Julia Roberts movie. But, let's not forget Rupert Holmes who did such a wonderful job as Roberts' gay friend, who comes to save the day with a flamboyant charm (including a hilarious group sing-along of Dionne Warwick's "I Say A Little Prayer For You"). And, don't miss the scene where a member of the wedding party gets her tongue stuck to an ice sculpture of Nude David (guess where). The only flaw I can see in the film (and it's a big one) is the character of Michael, the friend getting married. (For the life of me, I can't remember the actor's name.) His whole character, and perhaps it's in the talent of the actor, is weak, uninteresting, and lacking any depth at all, not to mention that distracting scar on his face. His lack of depth might go unnoticed except that he's one of the main characters. Fortunately, Roberts and Holmes pick up the slack and make it a wonderfully funny film.

This is a great movie. Roberts DOESN'T get the guy--which surprises us, b/c, well, she just always does! Cameron Diaz gives the best performance I have seen. Rupert steals the show. He is hysterically funny! Just a very solidly funny, sweet movie with a great cast.
The chemistry between Roberts and her best friend is smart. It's enough to make us all wonder... will they get together??? Are they meant to be together? Also speaks to the issue of remaining friends with ex's. Are we doomed to always be a tad jealous???

Though many of Julianne Potter's (Julia Roberts) efforts to win back an old boyfriend days before his impending nuptials may seem far fetched or even sociopathic, what rescues this movie from the banality of most commericial comedies is the smart writing and the expert performances. Julia Roberts can easily lapse into blandness (see CONSPIRACY THEORY), but she does make Julianne human in spite of her selfish actions. While we may never root for her (there is no doubt that Cameron Diaz is the truly better match for Dermot Mulroney's character), by the end, when Julianne regains her senses, we finally can feel her loss. Roberts plays the love-confession and the poignant farewell scenes so well that we may be thinking back to our own love losses with a tinge of remorse or, at least sentiment. Kudos also to Rupert Everett, unfairly robbed of an Oscar nomination, for his brilliant, unforgettable portrayal of Julianne's surrogate best friend, George. George seems to be th! e only voice of reason left in Julianne's life and if more movie (and real-life) friendships were this open, decent, and genuine, the world would be a better place and there would be no need for the glut of talk show deviates which populate the airwaves. MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING bears up under repeated viewings as well; it's not Shakespeare, but it's miles above the standard Hollywood comedy. Thank the stars. END

I'm not the biggest Julia Roberts fan in the world, but I have yet to stumble across a film of hers which isn't purely great entertainment. And this little gem is no different. It's warm and fun, full of great laughs, sweet romantic moments, and irresistable characters. As Jules, Roberts sparkles with charm, and even though she screws up, you can't help but root for her in the end. Cameron Diaz is an absolute riot in this early role-I have yet to see her in a more charming, winning role.And Rupert Everett is simply flawless-his dry wit steals every scene he's in.
This isn't "great cinema", but as far as light romantic comedies go, you can't go wrong with this one. Sure it's light and fluffy, but it's not dumb, and it never fails to touch you, and make you laugh. Loaded with heaps upon heaps of unforgettable scenes, this is everything a romantic comedy should be. If you're thinking of renting a light flick over the weekend, My Best Friend's Wedding fits the bill.Sweet, fun, intelligent comedy at its' best.

Jules Potter is in love with her bdest friend Micheal, but he is about to marry someone else. Jules will do anything to mess up his big day. This movie is loads of fun and laughs. When they break out into song in one scene, you can't help but sing along. I love this movie and watch it often. It's one of my favorites with Roberts next to Pretty Woman.

Movies about weddings are always in vogue; the perennial ritual of a man and a woman tying the knot bringing out the best and the worst in all of us. Julia Roberts is utterly charming as the scheming gal pal who has three days to break up her best friend's (Dermot Mulroney) pending marriage to the rather anemic and annoying Kim (Cameron Diaz). Factor in some idiocy guaranteed to amuse and the level-headed advice of George (Rupert Everett), her gay confidant - and voila - a comedy souffle. My Best Friend's Wedding is a comedy with heart - also excelling at that best of all human emotions - laughter through tears. Bring Kleenex to life's party. You're going to need it.

Nothing to cry over via Sony's exceptional 1080p transfer - alas, still only available in the UK but region free and therefore playable anywhere in the world. Great picture. Superior sound. Ravishing from start to finish and some delicious extra features to enjoy besides. Sony Home Entertainment has proven time and again they understand the hi-def market place, taking the time, money and care to produce quality discs that are head and shoulders above the level of commitment put out by the competition. Great stuff. Much enjoyed. Buy it today. Treasure it forever.
