Most of the action is played for broad laughs, and Hogan demonstrates the ability to generate them, even if the humor is base and often cruel, making fun of people's looks and ineptitude.

This movie only shows true tact and understanding when it comes to flattering the audience; everyone on-screen is strictly up for grabs.

There are some funny and inventive sequences here, but for the most part Muriel's Wedding is disappointingly simplistic and cliched.

The trouble with the movie is that there's nothing to Muriel but her false dreams: We never quite glimpse the woman they're hiding.
