Product Description

Amazon.ca

One of the best romantic comedies of the 1990s, My Best Friend's Wedding not only gave Julia Roberts a delightful vehicle for her crowd-pleasing comeback, but it further distinguished itself by avoiding the conventional plotting of the genre. Julia plays a prominent Chicago restaurant critic whose best friend (Dermot Mulroney) is a former lover from her college days with whom she'd made a binding pact: if neither of them were married by the age of 28, they'd marry each other. Just when they're about to reach the deadline of their agreement, Mulroney arrives in Chicago to introduce Roberts to his seemingly perfect fiancée (Cameron Diaz) and announce their wedding in just three days. That leaves the shocked Julia with just three short days to sabotage the wedding and marry the man she now realizes she's loved all along. With potential heartbreak waiting in the wings, she'll either get what she wants or pay the price for her selfish behavior, and Ronald Bass's cleverly constructed screenplay keeps us guessing to the very end. Rupert Everett scored rave reviews for his scene-stealing performance as Robert's gay friend who goes along with her scheming (but only so far), and even as she makes her character's needy desperation disarmingly appealing, Roberts wisely allows Diaz to capitalize on her charming time in the spotlight. As the romantic outcome remains uncertain, the viewer is held in a state of giddy suspense, and director P.J. Hogan pulls off some hilarious scenes (like a restaurant full of people singing the Dionne Warwick hit "I Say a Little Prayer") that could easily have fallen flat in the hands of a less talented filmmaker. It's no surprise that this was one of the box-office smashes of 1997. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

I think this film is a modern classic and much underappreciated by the critics...when released...but now its thought of as one of ms Robert's best...and I often sung its praises as not only entertaining...and julia giving one of her best performances...she puts more life and zest into this film than many other roles...the film begins very inaspiciously with her in an elevator feeling claustrophobic...hysterical...her best friend is getting married who is also her amour...although they both have honour and respect the constraints of friendship..at least i think the two do...the male friend marries Kim that soap opera type name famous at the time of the film...a guy who reads over his shoulder...and all kinds of faults are elaborated about him...but rather than drops him..a guy who's never had a good job..the highs of modern virtues...she decides to keep him either she loves him or she's stealing him away from Julia's character and that's a laugh in itself...then Julia has a relationship with a gay fellow..an interesting character in this film which provides interest and entertainment..there are karaoke bars...and singing...but she doesntmarry him since she wants to marry the other guy...and there are songs at the bar as "forever and ever" love and everyone seems to be disposed to the same person...however the marriage is on..she becomes addicted JUlia's character..she does bad things to good people...she's dangerous and criminal...criminal? in this film there's nothing really criminal what does the script writer have in mind?...the guy is too irritatingly persfect we are told...the difference between jello and crene brullee...jello like all those Cosby commercials...she's 'gonna' love him....she decides to break things off for everyone's good...Read more ›
