3.0 out of 5 stars undemanding fun, 9 Sep 2008
This review is from: Made Of Honour [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
In a nutshell: playboy Tom Bailey (Dempsey) agrees to be Maid Of Honour at the wedding of his best friend Hannah (Monaghan) to Scottish hunk Colin (Kidd), in an attempt to win Hannah's heart, after realising that he loves her and doesn't want to lose her to another man.
I wasn't expecting much when I was dragged to see 'Made Of Honour' at the cinema, but I actually really enjoyed the first two-thirds of the movie (the part set in the States). The dialogue is very witty, and the film moves along at a fast pace...but it all goes downhill when the action moves to Scotland.
Now I know rom-coms are meant to be light and fluffy, but the film descends into cliche so rapidly that I spent the rest of the movie just inwardly groaning. It's all here...kilts, castles, Rabbie Burns, even the Highland Games! It's like the movie has somehow transformed from Sex And The City into Brigadoon! I suppose I should have anticipated the direction the movie was going during an earlier scene in which we find out that Colin has never heard of the game of basketball!
However, I'm not the target market for this type of movie: Made Of Honour is definitely 'one for the ladies' (apart from the thankfully gratuitous scene in which Tom accompanies Hannah when she goes to buy her wedding lingerie) and a perfect 'Sunday afternoon' movie for any rom-com fan.
