After seeing Gere and Roberts play much smarter people, it is painful to see them dumbed down here.

A clumsy motion picture that strives so hard for the perfect romantic ending that it triggers a gag reflex along the way.

There's no question the chemistry between them still works for a light romantic comedy. But an overcalculated, undernourished screenplay undermines much of the effort.

Julia Roberts es la única razón por la que vale la pena verla

Remember the romantic sparks between Julia Roberts and Richard Gere in Pretty Woman? In Runaway Bride it's more like a damp fizzle.

Better than The Princess Diaries. And if that's not damning with faint praise then I don't know what is.

That charming thing only works if the story is good.

Misses more frequently than it hits and couldn't care less.

A shiny bauble full of dead weight, gloppy good feeling and airless cliches!

A standard, by the numbers romantic comedy.

A dull, lifeless stinkbomb that plays like a 2 hour commercial for itself, hoping that the Gere-Roberts-Marshall combination is enough to warrant viewers' money. It isn't.

Simply isn't as good as its antecedent.

Stuck on auto-pilot, and therefore, comes off as a tiresome excursion into terrain that has been covered too many times to count.

While the hackneyed dialogue that swims throughout the entire film is flaw enough, the feel-good ending drowns the show thoroughly.

It isn't that Runaway Bride is a horrible movie, it's that I've already seen a slightly different version of it done dozens of times before.
