User Reviews

Julia Roberts was made for her role in 'My Best Friend's Wedding'
1 September 2003 | by kibler@adelphia.netSee all my reviews

My Best Friend's Wedding (1997) Julia Robert, Dermot Mulroney, Cameron Diaz, Rupert Everett, Philip Bosco, M. Emmet Walsh, Rachel Griffiths, Carrie Preston, D: P.J. Hogan.

Roberts is a New York food critic who's best friends with sports writer Mulroney, and when he tells her he's marrying a rich blonde spitfire (Diaz), the best friend tries sabotaging their nuptials. Funny and smart romantic comedy gives a custom-made role for Roberts whose smile and infectious cackle make her sweet, and Everett steals the show as her editor/gay friend.

Running Time: 105 minutes and rated PG-13 for brief strong language and sex-related humor.

RATINg: *** (out of ****)
