A Frightening Comedy
Jan 05, 2008

It was difficult to root for Julia Roberts. It would have been like rooting for Joan Crawford in "Queen Bee" or Gene Tirney in "Leave Her To Heaven" She's a latent nasty piece of work. A woman, we're told, intelligent, successful,... Full review

When I first started watching, "My Best Friend\\'s Wedding", which was probably nearly 10 years after it hit the theatres I was thinking all through the movie, "I HATE THIS MOVIE!". Gosh, everything in me wanted to hate the movie and... Full review

"My Best Friend's Wedding", really... Even though I don't dislike it, I can't say that I enjoy it either. This movie is intended to be a romantic comedy, but doesn't convince me because it fails. Yes, it has some humor and... Full review

I was truly surprised by this movie. First of all to see Julia Roberts play bad girl is quite refresing,Rupert Everett steals this movie completely. Cameron Diaz is engaging and very good. But, mostly I really liked the premise of this... Full review

Julia Roberts' considerable on screen charisma anchors MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING, a romantic comedy with a twist that may or may not have you cheering for our girl to come out on top. Roberts plays a food critic named Julianne... Full review

Julia Roberts is awesome in this movie. She plays a a best friend to a guy who she thinks she is in love with. But he is engaged. She plots to end the engagement. Rupert Everett did an excellent job singing... Full review
This is a popcorn movie, a chick flick, that leaves a lot to be desired all around in the ethics department. Normally I am a huge fan of Julia Roberts but in this woeful tale, she fails to come across as... Full review

I love this movie, not only because it is truly what would happen if anything like this did happen in real life. But I also love it because she feels good in the end just like everyone watching the movie. Even... Full review

This was one of those movies, which had everything in it. Drama, tears, outstanding humor, you name it. I almost didn't watch it after everyone I spoke with, labeled it as a "chick-flick". Forget about it. This is a grand movie.... Full review

So they remain such a fabulous environment for a story, and that's what My Best Friend's Wedding had in spades, and it was a story that took place over a FOUR-DAY wedding. My Best Friend's Wedding has already become a popular and profitable hit, the only non-action film to top the US$100 million mark at the US box office, opening on the same day as Batman and Robin. ...

Mostly, though, the film suffers from a lack of a charismatic leading man.....Roberts and Diaz are both energetically exuberant as the dueling dames.... ... Full Review

The third season of Scrubs represents change and growth, not only for the characters but for the series itself, as it takes a step back from the raw slapstick comedy and strikes a delicate balance between outrageous humor and heartfelt drama. It blends outrageous sight gags and pratfalls with fast-paced and intelligent dialogue, all the while maintaining a heartfelt and often insightful emotional undercurrent. ... Full Review
