A classic Australian film.

I don't understand the appeal. It's a movie full of selfish and shallow characters. There are some very unnecessary inappropriate moments. Everything about it was just pitiful. (First and only viewing - 5/28/2014)

This is a great feel good kinda movie. Toni is fantastic in it. "You're terrible Muriel!"

Daft, bizarre and full of completely unlikeable characters all being nasty to each other. There's a good soundtrack and the movie turns it around at the end, but the first hour or so are hard going.

Brilliant character study, with comic and poignant moments of a dysfunctional family, and how Muriel breaks out and finds herself, and we find us on the way too, while enjoying the ride.
To the parts of us that struggle and fail miserably, this is a hilarious antidote - drink it in, laugh, reconsider things, and enjoy this journey. Muriel shows that its perception that needs to change, not just self-loathing.

This wasn't exactly the fun, lighthearted rom-com I was expecting. None of the characters are likable and the story just gets more depressing as it goes along.

Delightfully quirky and you never know where it's going. Right up my alley.

Sad movie. The poor girl reminds me of an old friend from school that lived a few house's down from me.

I was expecting a fun ABBA filled movie. A little bit of ABBA, but the movie was weird, depressing, sad, and bizarre. Other than the totally hot Olympian swimmer, there was not one bright spot or enjoyable minute in this movie.

A romantic comedy less about finding true love, and more about hopelessly waiting for it to fall into your lap. Toni Collette's sympathetic, yet likable character and the ABBA soundtrack are especially sweet.

Another ugly, campy Australian film. Fun at first but takes a turn for a bit too depressing and a bit too dull.

Operating as a joyous celebration of the weird and the unappreciated while simultaneously dismantling the sexist ideals women have been conditioned to prioritize over their own self-worth, "Muriel's Wedding" is a charming success, in large part due to a wonderful lead performance from Toni Collette.

The perfect mix of comedy and drama.

Toni Collette plays a woman with a coupla niggling personal defects that're overblown by her own consciousness until she's nearly paralyzed: us. The piece charts her arc from her personal dreamland of ache into a reality that's dealable with serio-comic poetry, and ABBA provides the soundtrack. Pretty darn good. Rachel Griffiths (one of my favs) plays the buddy everyone would love to buddy with admirably.

Toni Colette is a delight as the awkward, chubby girl who just wants to be proud of herself for once. The story here is broad at times with cartoonishly evil friends harassing her, but then it gets dark with subplots of cancer, suicide and a marriage of convenience. While the overall tone is uneven, I still loved the message at the end; Be good to people who are good to you, and don't waste time proving your worth to the haters. Also: You can't fight the power of ABBA.
