For a while, I was getting concerned about the direction Julia Roberts' career was taking, after misfiring in such dismal duds as "Mary Reilly" and "Michael Collins" where she seemed so shell-shocked that her radiant smile was nowhere in sight.Thank God she rebounded for "My Best Friend's Wedding". This film, while not perfect, is a shining example of what makes Julia so radiant and desirable in the right role. And she sure gets it here.As Julianne Potter, Julia gives the same sweet, radiant glow she offered us in "Pretty Woman". Seems she's <more>
fallen in love with her best friend for ages Michael O'Neal Dermot Mulroney - unfortunately, it's on the eve of his wedding to an effervescent, perky girl Cameron Diaz who does her darndest to make Julianne her best friend...as well as her maid-of-honor. Of course, Julianne does what any right-thinking young lady would do: everything in her power to break up the wedding of the title.This is not as melodramatic as it sounds: this is, in fact, one of the brightest, smartest and all-around funniest comedies of the decade. All the lead characters make the absolute most of their parts and revel in the glory of love, double-dealing and flat-out lying. Along with being extremely romantic, this has to be the most cleverly-plotted love story ever: for every plot thought up by Julianne, there's a twist or foul-up that has everything to do with true love and/or blind devotion.There are great faces in the background, too. Susan Sullivan, Philip Bosco, the great M. Emmet Walsh all lend able support and offer their own fine support. But how can I mention them in the same paragraph without adding Rupert Everett into the fray? As Julianne's gay editor/friend, he adds great color to all his scenes, especially at the dinner with the wedding party at the seafood restaurant you've seen it, you know what I mean .I won't spoil anything by saying that true love wins out in the end; face it, would you WANT to see Julia Roberts as a BAD GUY? Maybe you would, but not in a romantic comedy. In fact, the main surprises lie in the twists and turns that lie throughout this film. Every twist makes the story all the more interesting and incidentally funny. Of course, the music makes the proceedings all the better with a heavy assist from Dionne Warwick on two occasions .So to recap, what else can I say: if you love Julia Roberts, love stories, comedies and weddings, here's your movie.Ten stars and a copy of "Dionne Warwick's Greatest Hits" on CD for "My Best Friend's Wedding", where true love wins but true friendship comes in a close second.Keep up the good work, Julia.
I can't believe some of the negative comments I read from other contributors reviewing this movie.I own this movie on video and have seen it many times and have enjoyed it each and every time. I think this is easily one of the best comedies to come out of the 90s and I actually place it on my personal best films ever list.I can't see what people don't like about this movie.First of all, these people who question how can they like a movie where the main character is so rotten just cracks me up. First of all, it's a movie people, it's not real life. Second of all, Julia <more>
Roberts' character is not a rotten person. Her character simply gets wrapped up in the moment and loses her judgment momentarily it's a COMEDY people!! .Near the end of the movie her best friend played by Rupert Everett even asks her if she's sure she's acting out of love or out of some desire to win. I think the movie clearly shows that Julia's character and her long time friend and one time boyfriend played by Dermot Mulroney have had a long and deep friendship and that there are certainly strong feeling between the two. The fact that they made a pact years ago that if both were unmarried by the time they turned 28 they would marry each other underscores this. The movie plays itself out that Julia's character has basically always re-assured herself that if she weren't to find some knight in shining armor she would always have her old boyfriend who she does love just not in a romantic way anymore, though she takes the length of the movie to realize this to marry.The movie is extremely well directed. The blocking where the actors stand in relation to the camera and what is shown/revealed either to the audience or to other characters is top notch.The pacing is great with hardly a slowdown in the entire movie. Those times the movie does lessen the pace for a moment are to showcase a tender moment between Julia & Dermot. A particularly bittersweet scene is when Julia & Dermot share an afternoon taking a cruise through Chicago's downtown river. They share a song, a hug and look into each other's eyes and we as the audience wait to see if they profess their true love for each other, but the moment passes as they pass under a bridge and into the shadows and we realize that moments are fleeting and love can be fickle.The music is awesome in the movie with so much of it throughout the movie that the movie almost plays like a mini musical with various songs being sung in parts by characters throughout the movie.Rupert Everett is hysterical as the gay male friend and Dermot Mulroney is totally underrated in his thankless role as the put-upon groom.Cameron Diaz gives one of her best performances as the cute as a button bride.This is an outstanding example of what a mainstream, big Hollywood studio movie can be.Buy this movie. You'll enjoy it over and over for many years to come.
This is one of my favorite movies. 2 of the highest paid actress are Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz and they are both in this same film. As usual, Julia Roberts' acting was great. Cameron Diaz was charismatic. The story is funny and its something that you can relate to and learn from, like to learn how to let go of someone. This is a romantic comedy and if you are not into this kind of movies then don't watch this. I really think that this movie is great because it is realistic. Try to put yourself in Julianne Potter's shoes and see if you can handle it. I recommend this movie to <more>
Julia Roberts fans!! This is probably one of her best films!!
I loved this show. The acting was flawless, and the story was funny, believable, and lovable. A woman goes after an old boyfriend who is about to be married. She didn't want him before the engagement, but went to all kinds of troubles to win him back before the marriage could take place. With every shananagan she pulled, she dug herself into a deeper and deeper hole. Finally, her antics were found out causing bitter feelings. The movie remained light hearted all the way through, giving me great bursts of hilarious guffaws. Diaz and Roberts were perfect together, great comedic actresses. <more>
Not only is this a great movie in the first place, Julia Robert's acting far exceeds expectations for your average actress. She puts so much emotion and enthusiasm into this production, you feel that she is actually living what is happening in the movie. Rupert Everett is also excellent in portraying his character. This movie also had humor, romance, comedy and suspense, everything you could want from a movie. You must see this movie.
Good romantic comedy that will touch you and make you feel warm inside (by Catherine_Grace_Zeh)
MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING, in my opinion, is a good romantic comedy that will touch you and make you feel warm inside. If you ask me, Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, and Cameron Diaz dazzle! My favorite parts are when Julianne Julia Roberts chases after Michael Dermot Mulroney as he's chasing after Kimmy Cameron Diaz and when Kimmy and Julianne yell at each other in the women's restroom at Comiskey Park. One thing I hate about this movie is Cameron Diaz's singing. My friend covered his ears when she sang "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself." No <more>
offense, Cameron, but you sang better in THE MASK, albeit your singing voice was dubbed. Anytime I watch this movie, when "I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself," "I Say A Little Prayer," or "The Way You Look Tonight" is performed, I always sing along. I also get this feeling that makes me feel good inside and makes me want to cry. In conclusion, there is a moral to this story, and that is, "Never take your relationship with your boyfriend or girlfriend for granted."
Say a little prayer for more movies like this one. (by raymond_chandler)
Julia Roberts gets a great opportunity to showcase her talent here, and she runs with it. Some of her physical comedy bits are reminiscent of Lucille Ball. She plays a character that could come off as a real jerk, but her natural charm and self-deprecating manner are endearing. She displays real acting chops, especially in the scenes on the tourboat and in the gazebo. Cameron Diaz turns in a real star-making performance as a ditz who becomes a wildcat when threatened. Her acting in the karaoke bar is fearless and really establishes her character's personality.Rupert Everett, is, well, <more>
fantastic. He acts as Roberts' conscience, and delivers some of the funniest lines in the whole film. This is one of the most uproariously funny mainstream Hollywood movies to come along in a long while. The script is packed with zingers, and the cast makes the most of it. At the same time, it has some genuinely poignant moments. Don't let it pass you by.
This was one of those movies, which had everything in it. Drama, tears, outstanding humor, you name it. I almost didn't watch it after everyone I spoke with, labeled it as a "chick-flick". Forget about it. This is a grand movie. Probably one of the best from the 90s. If you enjoy movies that are made from the heart, you'll love it. I've seen some great movies like Somewhere in Time, Love Story and this one easily falls in the same league, at least for me. The guy with the British accent gave a great performance and did his humor outstandingly. Julia Roberts acted superb. <more>
Cameron Diaz, who I'd never see act before fulfilled her part decently. I can't digest a rating of 6.3 on IMDb. Leads me to believe how biased IMDb's ratings can be sometime. Forget about what any one says. If you like great movies with a message, Then see this one today!!
A surprisingly amusing and interesting romcom (by KathyB-2)
This film was a pleasant surprise for me after hearing mixed responses from friends and acquaintances. I can see why it wouldn't appeal to some people : Julia Roberts in a romantic comedy could be pretty slushy stuff; but then again if you watch it wanting that sort of thing you're likely to be disappointed. Yes, so it is romantic and even a bit slushy at times, but has a sharp script and fast pace which keep you amused 95% of the time.One of the things which appealed to me was the way moments of melodrama were defused into comedy - check out the two girls' confrontation with an <more>
audience of women gathered by the call "Catfight!" whose oohs and aahs forestall any emotional reaction we ourselves may have to the scene.Some of the camerawork is also more interesting than one might expect, with particularly powerful close-ups where one or two faces fill the screen. Julia Roberts' beauty comes through in a long shot which starts to look like a shampoo commercial: long curly hair spills around her head as she lies in despair on the floor the public safety message being, don't ever sit with your back against a door which an irate ex-lover might wrench open at any minute ; nevertheless, the proximity gives us an intimacy with her character we might otherwise miss.Another effective shot of this kind two heads on a pillow fill the screen drives home the theme touched on here of the devastatingly attractive gay man who is made doubly so by his inaccessibility as more fully explored in "Object of my Affection" . George Rupert Everett is a fantastic character whose sense of fun, wisdom, sensitivity and English accent make him every girls' ideal object for unrequited love or maybe it's just me .The disappointing aspect for me was the film's final affirmation of sexist values and a rather superficial and one-sided view of "real" love - but you 'll have to watch it to see if you agree with me on that. Basically in my opinion, some of the ending lacked the self-awareness and sharpness of the rest of the film. However, overall I would recommend it for an amusing and sometimes clever 90 minutes of celluloid.
