Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
While it has its mawkish moments, this is a surprisingly cynical and acidic picture, with its jaded view of romance apparent from the satirical opening titles. Julia Roberts -- in her best role in years -- plays a woman who made a bargain with best friend Dermot Mulroney to marry at age 28 if they weren't already wed. When Mulroney decides to tie the knot with sweet Cameron Diaz, Roberts goes nuts and vows to sabotage the wedding. Rupert Everett is terrific as Roberts' gay confidant, and there are some surprising scenes, including a woman with her tongue stuck to an ice sculpture in a most untoward location. It was a huge hit at the box office, with enough genuine romance to satisfy purists and enough bite for those with a slightly different attitude.

    Her Best Friend's Wedding? Her Best Movie!

    This is my absolute favorite film ever. I loved Pretty Woman, Stepmom, Steel Magnolias and Conspiracy Theory, but, in my opinion, none of those hold a candle to My Best Friend's Wedding. It makes me smile, laugh, and sometimes cry-escpcially when they play 'The Way You Look Tonight' *sniff*. Seriously, this is a terrific film that is worthy to be enjoyed by families and sweethearts alike.

    How could you not like this movie

    First of all you know it is going to be a great movie if julia roberts stars in it. Secondly you know it is going to be a great movie if the co stars are cameron diaz and rupert everet. This is a romantic comedy but not a pradictable one. I was on the ground rolling with laughter when i first saw this movie and still do the same when i watch it again. It is the one movie if any you can not get enough of. It is my favorite movie ever. If i had to rate it between a one and a ten i would rate it an eleven or higher. I love this movie with a passion.

    The Best Romantic, Screwball Comedy in Forty Years!

    Once upon a time, there lived some very concerned and fast talking Hollywood Agents, witty Managers and one very powerful Film Studio Chief that adored an actress named Julia Roberts. She was fortunate to star in a major film that became a box office success with her co-star, Richard Gere. Unfortunately, Julia began to follow the ''bad luck'' path and footsteps of another great actress, Katherine Hephurn, and was on the verge of a similar label... ''Box Office Poison''. After a string of ''yawning'' mediocre dramas and box office profits, the mighty Hollywood entourage finally woke up to realize, and (thankfully) convinced Julia Roberts, to put her ''pearly white brites'' were her money was (and still is)... in comedies, not dark dramas. Thank God Julia Roberts chose to star in this (now) romantic classic film. ''My Best Friend's Wedding'' was the movie that made me fall in love with and admire all of the incredible ''colors of emotions'' portrayed by this incredibly intuitive and soulful actress. Not only is ''My Best Friend's Wedding'' a superb comedy, creatively filled with slick - thought out comical scenes, it contains one of the top emotional and romantic scenes in motion picture history. The scene involves Julia Roberts (Julianne Potter) and her old flame, Dermot Mulroney (Michael O'Neal) as they cruise down the Chicago River. Dermott Mulroney (Michael) conveys the importance of verbalizing the three most powerful words... ''I Love You'' ... to someone special if they really cared. The entire moment of that particular scene was filmed, acted, directed, and musically scored in the most astounding cinematic way. It always brings tears to my eyes when Dermott (Michael) gently rocks Julia (Julianne) in his arms as he softly sings ''The Way You Look Tonight''. As they continue to dance, we see Julia's (Julianne's) face with several tears gently gliding down. This scene is worthy to be included for, (and if) The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences should ever present, a romantic comedy retrospective. Watch it. I think you'll agree. Julia wasn't even nominated for Best Actress at the Academy Awards, however truly deserved The ''Best Actress'' Oscar for a triumphant comeback as the ''Queen of the Contemporary Screwball, Romantic Comedy''.

    Julia Roberts is Exceptional!!

    This hillarious commedy kept me laughing the whole time. Julia Roberts puts on a great performance, and Cameron Diaz is histerical. This movie is a must see. If you are looking for a movie that will complete a date or girl's night out, this is the one!!
