The pic is sweet, well-played and a bore.

February 17, 2013
The predictability of this romantic comedy co-starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere in no way detracts from its humorous charm.
December 28, 2010
Cute romantic comedy OK for most older kids.

Runs a half-hour too long, and it drags through its multiple endings. Runaway Bride has plenty of delights, just a few too many.

March 3, 2002
A satisfying romantic comedy that reveals that we can't open our hearts to love until we stop cheating on our true selves.
April 7, 2001
Remember the romantic sparks between Julia Roberts and Richard Gere in Pretty Woman? In Runaway Bride it's more like a damp fizzle.

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

Roberts and Gere try gamely to look at each other as if there's a scintilla of frisson between them, but often as not they're forced to eschew the drama and go for absurd overacting.
January 1, 2000
After seeing Gere and Roberts play much smarter people, it is painful to see them dumbed down here.

It looks as if Julia and the horse were trying to get the hell away from the camera, and into a better movie.

Safe and sane and bland.

Runaway Bride is an atrocious bit of by-the-numbers screen filler.
January 1, 2000
This glossy comedy's romantic heat never rises above an amiable simmer - but it's funny and charming nonetheless.
January 1, 2000
We can no longer buy Roberts in her tearful romantic - melancholy mode.

A picture-perfect summer romance!

January 1, 2000
Gere and an almost ethereally radiant Roberts have never been better than in this sometimes herky-jerky breeze, which keeps improving as it goes.
