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.
