Product Description

Julia Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, Cameron Diaz and Rupert Everett star in MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING, ahigh-spirited romantic comedy that serves up something wild, something new, something touching and something truly hilarious. Roberts dazzles as commitment-shy Jules Potter, who reluctantly realizes she is in love with her best friend Michael (Mulroney). There is just one catch: he's about to marrysomeone else. Comically crazed and full of devious plans, Jules will do anything to steal him back... except tell him the simple truth.

From Amazon.co.uk

One of the best romantic comedies of the 1990s, My Best Friend's Wedding not only gave Julia Roberts a delightful vehicle for her crowd-pleasing comeback, but it further distinguished itself by avoiding the conventional plotting of the genre. She plays a prominent Chicago restaurant critic whose best friend (Dermot Mulroney) is a former lover from her college days with whom she'd made a binding pact: if neither of them were married by the age of 28, they'd marry each other. Just when they're about to reach the deadline of their agreement, Mulroney arrives in Chicago to introduce Roberts to his seemingly perfect fiancée (Cameron Diaz) and announce their wedding in just three days. That leaves the shocked Julia with just three short days to sabotage the wedding and marry the man she now realises she's loved all along. With potential heartbreak waiting in the wings, she'll either get what she wants or pay the price for her selfish behaviour, and Ronald Bass' cleverly constructed screenplay keeps us guessing to the very end. It's no surprise that this was one of the box-office smashes of 1997. --Jeff Shannon, Amazon.com

On the DVD: My Best Friend's Wedding is presented in 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen and there is very little grain or noise, the only blurring coming from those soft focus moments. There are two "making-of" documentaries, one produced by HBO and the other a general behind the scenes mix of fly on the wall footage and interviews with cast and crew. Masquerading as helpful hints for the soon to be wed there's also a short featurette called "Wedding Do's and Don'ts". You can also sing along with one of the film's more bizarre moments; the fish restaurant rendition of "Say a Little Prayer", check out the pictures in the wedding album and read the filmographies. --Kristen Bowditch

Format: DVD
I've seen more rom-coms than I care to admit to, and provided you don't make a habit of watching this one on a weekly or even a monthly basis, I think My Best Friend's Wedding is one to place in your top ten. Obviously it's no When Harry Met Sally, but it's still way better than one of those Californian airhead movies.

Roberts' character has a prior claim on the affections of her old friend Mulroney, who shocks her into action when he announces he's marrying THE ONE. Roberts' knows she's the one and plots to steal Mulroney away from Cameron Diaz before the wedding. Rupert Everett plays the gay pal who is the voice of reason.

For all that this is a mainstream movie sometimes sickly sweet and silly, it also has many poignant and tender scenes - for example, when Mulroney and Roberts are on the ferry and again she misses her chance to claim him with a romantic gesture. Love is a competition where the boldest, the uninhibited win and no matter how deep the feelings of the others, they remain also-rans. What prevents this movie being too icky is Roberts' agreeably nasty attempts to undermine the almost cloying (but not quite) affection of Mulroney and Diaz. For all that Diaz's character is sweet like icing sugar, she still demonstrates a toughness and her determination to befriend her rival is clearly a maniuplative strategy to keep the "big-haired food critic" from becoming a threat. The showdown in the ladies' room was a late addition after focus groups complained Roberts was too evil to be sympathetic.

Everett is superb as Roberts' editor, very funny and very camp. Mulroney is also successful at conveying his character's inner turmoil and burgeoning jealousy. It's also nice to see a rom-com where instead of being reliant upon a pop soundtrack, the cast perform the songs themselves, admittedly in rather contrived circumstances.

Just FF the opening titles and you'll love this more than you might anticipate.

This is a great film, funny, girly, a little bit mean at times, but great. I have to say that Rupert Everett totally steals this film from Julia Roberts and co. He is wonderful!! The scene where they are all sat at the table, and they start singing Arethas' 'Say A Little Prayer' is an absolute classic, and has me in stitches!! He is so dry and acerbic, and so very funny. I want him for my friend!! Julia Roberts, is of course, excellent, as are Cameron Diaz and Dermot Mulroney, but for me, it is definitely Ruperts' film!! I love it.

I purchased this for wife but I enjoy watching it on occasion mainly for Rupert Everett's humorous turn as Julia Robert's (gay) publisher. There is good chemistry among the actors and after watching the extras I can see why - they had a great time filming this. I won't bother reviewing the film, most likely you know the plot already. My review is geared toward how this Blu-ray compares to the DVD version. While the quality is not 'heads and shoulders' above the DVD it is certainly an improvement. After watching this Blu-ray I compared a few scenes to the DVD, but this was not a direct apples to oranges comparison since my Sony BDP-350 player was up-scaling the DVD video to 1080p. But even on that basis the Blu-ray version was clearly superior. I could not see any DNR or EE in the mastering to Blu-ray, if it was there I could detect it on my 120" front projection screen. I was hoping for a snappier picture with more color pop but the general quality was somewhat flat. Close-ups showed good details such as complexions and other facial features. Objects in the background were better resolved with the Blu-ray versus the up-scaled DVD. Although the Dolby TrueHD soundtrack is mainly across the front, since this film is dialogue driven, there were a few good surround sound scenes like the baseball park, train station, etc. I found I had to set my volume on my Denon receiver several notches higher than usual for a TrueHD soundtrack, but the dialogue easy to discern.

I imported this Blu-ray to the USA since the release in my country has been delayed since September 2008. For the price (including delivery) this was a easy decision to make and I suspect that the eventual USA release will be an almost exact copy of this Blu-ray version but for more money. This is a region-free (ABC) Blu-ray.

This is the kookily beautiful Julia Roberts at her quirky best. Whilst My Best Friend's Wedding might not be as polished as Notting Hill, it is the less bland for it. Roberts' best friend is getting married and it is at the point that she finds this fact out that she decides that she cannot let this wedding go ahead because she is in love with the groom to be. Hilarity and pathos ensue as she tries to win back her beau from the delightfully naive and innocent Cameron Diaz. If you want a great girlie movie for a Saturday night in with a box of choccies and a box of kleenex, this is the one to go for.

Format: DVD
Julianne and Michael made a pact with each other after their brief one-month fling in college ended on a good note; that if the time should come when they were both 28 and unmarried, they would get together and tie the knot.

Several years later, and a 28 year old Julianne recieves that all important phone call from Michael saying he has to speak to her about something important. Having always still had a flame for the guy she's been holding as her best friend for all these years, Julianne is hopeful that Michael is about to propose to her as part of their pact, but instead announces that he's about to get married after a crazy whirlwind romance.

Julianne goes out to meet Michael and his fiancee, a sweet and genuine college student named Kimmy who is head over heels for Michael and takes an instant shine to Julianne and appoints her as maid of honor within three minutes of meeting.

Desperate to win back the love of the man she once gave up when she wasn't ready for real love, Julianne must now calculate and devise a devious plan to break the soon-to-be newly weds before they tie the knot.

Julia Roberts does her usual outstanding job of being the heroine while managing to stay likeable yet at the same time, completely dislikable for what her character does during the course of the movie. Rupert Everett stars as Julianne's other best friend, and editor, and flawlessly gives an awesome comedic performance despite falling into the stereotypical gay friend role. Dermott Mulrooney appears in this very fresh faced and genuine, but his performance was lacking something, somewhat (emotion, maybe?).

All in all, a decent romantic comedy though!
