Runaway BrideDirector: Garry Marshall
In 1990, Pretty Woman turned Julia Roberts into a star and gave Richard Gere's career a much-needed boost; for 1999, Roberts and Gere reunited with director Garry Marshall for the romantic comedy Runaway Bride. Roberts plays Maggie, who has left so many prospective husbands at the altar that she has gained notoriety as "the Runaway Bride," and a reporter (played by Richard Gere) is assigned to write a story about her. He tracks her down to a small town in Maryland where she's spending time with her family and preparing to give marriage another try. However, the more time she spends with the persistent reporter, the more second thoughts she has about her fiancé (Christopher Meloni). Hector Elizondo, another Pretty Woman alumnus, appears in the supporting cast alongside Joan Cusack, Paul Dooley, and Rita Wilson.

good movie. well done.
Runaway Bride was a great movie and I think it is very funny. I watched it when I was in a bad mood and I got happy after finishing the movie. My sister thought I was weird because I got happy so quick.
This was a funny and enjoyable movie which had some scenes which inferred to the ''Pretty Woman'' movie. If you saw ''Pretty Woman'', you would understand some of the jokes. The movie was original enough to be funny and not be a considered a sequel to ''Pretty Woman''.
This movie was funny and suprizing! Julia Roberts is great!!!! The Soundtrack is really good too! I reccomend this movie if you want a laugh and a really good story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THIS MOVIE IS A DEFINITE MUST SEE! ITS SEEMLESS FROM BEGINNING TO END WITH THE BEST PERFORMANCE GIVEN BY CHRISTOPHER MELONI...HE IS HILARIOUS AS COACH BOB AND MAKES YOU THINK TWICE ABOUT JULIA AND RICHARD BEING HEADLINERS. HE STEALS THE SHOW AND WILL THOROUGHLY ENTERTAIN YOU IN THIS MOVIE
The acting is great, there's chemistry, and the whole storyline is amazing too. Julia Roberts has phenominal acting skills and Richard Geres is also really good. It's funny, believable, and definately worth watching. The whole "I guarentee..." speech is sweet. I HIGHLY recommend this movie!
