Yes, it's a romantic comedy, but like director Hogan's previous effort, "Muriel's Wedding," there's some snap among the smiles. Restaurant critic Julianne (Roberts) and sports writer Michael (Mulroney) are best friends who have a pact that they'll marry each other if neither has found someone else by the age of 28. Michael finds sweet, wealthy Kimmy (Diaz) and invites Julianne to his nuptials. Naturally, Julianne realizes she's in love with Michael and she'll stop at nothing to break up the wedding, even enlisting gay friend George (Everett) to pose as her new beau. Roberts appears as the critics prefer her (long hair and smiling) while she extends her range of physical comedy. Diaz gets to be nice, Everett gets to steal every scene he's in, and Mulroney gets to be the lucky object of two lovely women's affections. Shot on location in Chicago.

My Best Friend's Wedding
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 4.0 4.0

This is a really good comedy that kind of leans towards a chick flick but I think many of the guys out there would enjoy it. This movie is about Michael and Kimmy getting married, and his best friend Julianne revealing her love for Michael at the last minute. She does things to try to make Kimmy look stupid, which actually made everyone like her even more. On their wedding day, Julianne tells Michael how she feels and kisses him. Kimmy sees and runs away. Michael chases Kimmy, and Julianne chases Michael. I won't ruin the ending so go watch it!
