Our Score
This sparkling comedy proved to be a career-resurrecting movie for Julia Roberts, and for once she plays someone who may not get the guy. When she hears her best friend and former lover (Dermot Mulroney) is getting married, Roberts realises she wants to be more than just friends after all. What makes this film - from Muriel's Wedding director PJ Hogan - work so well is that it's not just "The Julia Roberts Show". While she does the bumbling, adorable routine she's best at, the stunning Cameron Diaz (as the bride-to-be) and superb Rupert Everett (as Roberts's gay friend and accomplice) battle it out for best supporting performance - and it's a dead heat. You'll cry with laughter when you watch Everett serenade Roberts (in a crowded restaurant) with I Say a Little Prayer. Terrific stuff.


A food critic realises she is in love with her best friend just as he announces he is going to marry another woman. Determined to have him to herself, she heads for the wedding with the intention of sabotaging the ceremony - but persuading the groom to give up on his bride-to-be proves harder than expected. Romantic comedy, starring Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, Cameron Diaz and Rupert Everett.
