A fun Aussie comedy with a message
30 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

"Muriel's Wedding" is all about a young Aussie woman who bears the scars of a dysfunctional family as she sets out in life in search of happiness. Very much an Aussie film, rough as a day old beard but with a heart of gold and a visceral sense of humor, "MW" is one of those few movies which can accurately be called a "gem". Buoyant, coarse, and poignant, "MW" tells a story of personal conquest as we watch a courageous Muriel struggle with low self esteem from patriarchal abuse while looking for love in all the wrong places. A roller coaster ride with a feel good ending for anyone into movies with morals and/or Aussie films. (B+)
