Ike Graham has his own by-lined column in USA Today, which he usually uses as a forum to rail against the opposite sex. For his latest column which he writes at the last minute as usual, he, based on some information from a stranger in a bar about a woman he knows of back home, includes the story of still single Hale, Maryland residing Maggie Carpenter, who is known as the "Runaway Bride" since she has been engaged multiple times, but always leaves her betrothed standing at the altar.

Julia Roberts makes a reference to Camp Birchwood, before she makes the platypus face, She attended that camp, in northern Minnesota, as a child. See more »
When Maggie is describing Bob's proposal, she refers to being at an "Oriole" game. When people use the actual name of Baltimore's Major League Baseball team, they always refer to the "Orioles." (The team's nicknames are the "O's" or the "Birds.") See more »
If you have seen the Simpsons Episode mocking it, you know why this is the worst movie ever. You know the rich snob will lose, and Gere and Roberts will get together. This is a tired story, with no suprises. Julia and Gere have done better together, apart and in their sleeps. Avoid this movie at all costs, runaway from all showings of this movie or suffer the pain of a horrible movie!
