The buoyant, bittersweet "Wedding" puts new fizz in an old form.

Although [Hogan] stages most of the scenes in a straightforward way for Friend's Wedding, there are some charming, offbeat touches here. One wishes he'd mined some of the story's kinkier subtexts a bit more, but hey ... this is a commercial-minded flick.

A bittersweet, modern-love morsel, this scrumptious drama should touch moviegoers' hearts in this action gorged summer.

A poor imitation of a screwball comedy.
February 3, 2009
We don't feel much of anything.
February 3, 2009
The draggy narrative of this 1997 comedy is tough to sit through -- there are even several overproduced musical numbers -- but it does have an intriguing subversive element that I don't want to give away.
February 3, 2009
Hogan's follow-up to Muriel's Wedding rolls smoothly over the bumps in the plot, oiled by a witty acerbic script and strong central performances.
February 3, 2009
This amiable comedy may not be hugely sophisticated, but Hogan does manage to make his attractive leads look like complete idiots, no mean achievement in image-obsessed Hollywood.
February 3, 2009
Anchored by skilled comedienne Julia Roberts, this skewered variation on jealousy and the wrong woman doing battle in the aisles is a winning balance of the familiar and the novel.

The Roberts audiences knew and loved is back--not only has the smile returned, but also the glow, the joy of performance.

The film's brazen amorality gradually freezes the smile on your face.
April 9, 2005
For those of us not so enthralled with Ms. Roberts, you'll have to endure the movie, but will be mildly entertained with good, old music and some stellar comedy provided almost entirely by Rupert Everett.
March 10, 2004
A romantic comedy that is both mawkish and subversive.
February 27, 2004
A cheeky comedy that rates at least three bouquets.
January 22, 2004
A romantic comedy significantly darker, more realistic and more intelligent than Hollywood examples of the same genre.
May 20, 2003
This delightful comedy about love, friendship and the hazards of lying comes not a moment too soon for anyone overwhelmed by the current glut of summer movie mayhem.
January 10, 2003
[The film's] virtues...make such a vivid and appealing impression that we forget, ignore, or fail even to notice those elements that are less successful.
October 15, 2002
Not only does this modern-day screwball romp manage to be romantic and comical, it also offers Julia Roberts a chance to shine again in the kind of movie that she does best.
September 10, 2002
Hey, I actually really liked this picture.
