Why does Runaway Bride feel so off? Why does it produce such halfhearted laughter? This is the sort of Hollywood tale in which everything seems to have been decided by committee.

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

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

Sparks are sorely lacking in this pokey tale!

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.

Doesn't generate enough laughs to make up for the fact that you never figure out what he (a misogynistic USA Today columnist) sees in her (a dizzy hardware-store manager).

Runaway Bride is an atrocious bit of by-the-numbers screen filler.
January 1, 2000
While the hackneyed dialogue that swims throughout the entire film is flaw enough, the feel-good ending drowns the show thoroughly.

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.
