Product Description

Comment peut-il en épouser une autre ? Julianne (Julia Roberts) n'en revient toujours pas. Et en plus, Kimmi (Cameron Diaz) - cette garce - est adorable. Mais il verra bien que c'est Julianne qu'il aime. Que c'est lui qu'elle aime ? Á moins qu'elle ne se rende compte que... P.J. Hogan nous avait séduits, voire emballés, avec Muriel, une première comédie romantique. Il recommence ! Et entre amour et amour-propre, Julia Roberts est ainsi plus belle que jamais, mélange de charme et d'obstination, de désarroi et d'ingéniosité. Ce film, c'est elle, c'est sa course poursuite aveuglée pour tenter de récupérer ce meilleur ami qu'elle a l'impression de perdre. Sauf que... Le Mariage de mon meilleur ami n'a rien de triste : bien au contraire. Il suffit de l'entendre rire, ne serait-ce qu'une fois, et d'entendre en écho le rire de Rupert Everett qui a planté pour l'occasion l'un des premiers rôles de dandy homo du cinéma, pour se laisser entraîner dans la course contre la montre. --Ambroise Ecorcheville

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.

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

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???

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.

This movie really bothered me. I like romantic comedies, I liked Pretty Woman, but this movie just played like it was written by a man who thinks he knows women well...but doesn't. Why do we have to see Julia Roberts falling apart because she's not married? why the implication that if she didn't take her job so seriously (more "wifely") she would be happier? why the implication that Cameron Diaz, the one who gets the guy, has made the better decision, to quit college and her dreams of being an architect to get married? (why would she need to quit working anyway even if she did get married? why does her future spouse want her to do so?) If social subtexts don't bother you enjoy this movie but if you can't quite turn off the reality meter then give this one a miss.
