As one of the most beloved romantic comedies of the 1990s, My Best Friend’s Wedding tells the story of Julianne Potter (Julia Roberts), a successful New York food critic who receives a phone call from her former flame and best friend, Michael O’Neal (Dermot Mulroney). During their conversation, Michael drops a bombshell: he’s getting married in just a few days to a woman named Kimberly Wallace (Cameron Diaz).

Suddenly, Julianne realizes that while she’s been busy building her own career, she’s still in love with Michael, and she’s running out of time to win him back. With only a few days left before the wedding, Julianne rushes to Chicago to try and sabotage the nuptials and win Michael’s heart. Along the way, she enlists the help of her best friend and editor, George Downes (Rupert Everett), to pose as her fiancé and create a distraction for Michael and his new bride.

As the plan unfolds, Julianne realizes that she’s not only competing with Kimberly for Michael’s affections, but also with herself. She must confront her own fear of commitment and what she truly wants from her life and career. In the end, the story explores the different types of love that exist, including the love between friends, the love of oneself, and the complicated nature of romantic love.

The film is filled with iconic scenes, including a karaoke rendition of “I Say a Little Prayer” and a tense boat ride where Julianne must come clean to her friend and confess her ulterior motives. The chemistry between Roberts and Mulroney is palpable, and the comedic timing of Everett and Diaz adds levity to the story’s dramatic elements.

Directed by P.J. Hogan and written by Ronald Bass, My Best Friend’s Wedding has become a defining movie for the romantic comedy genre. It explores themes of love, friendship, and loyalty, and ultimately reminds us that sometimes the best thing we can do for someone we love is to let them go.

The film received critical and commercial success upon its release, grossing over $299 million worldwide and earning an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song for “I Say a Little Prayer.” It has since become a beloved classic, and continues to be a favorite among fans of the romantic comedy genre.

My Best Friend's Wedding is a 1997 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 45 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.3 and a MetaScore of 50.
