could women be any worse?
23 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'my best friend's wedding' is, admittedly, a funny movie. unfortunately it is funny at the expense of women, and, being unintentional in this sexism, is highly irritating. the message this movie delivers to the viewer is that women are hysterical, manipulative, and needy. julia roberts comes across as a confident and strong woman with a successful life, that is until she find out her best male friend is getting married. faced with not having him to fall back on she goes berserk, and, with her attention focused on a man, allows her life to fall completely to pieces. along the way she does not think twice about trying to break-up the relationship her supposed best friend is in. who cares if he's happy, she wants him, and if the other woman gets left, well, you can't make an omelet without breaking some eggs? is that really what this movie wants to be saying about women and their ability to be loyal?
