My Best Friend’s Wedding
This romcom’s still a gem 20 years on
sony Movie Channel 9.00pm - 11.15pm
Cookery writer Julianne (Julia Roberts) is invited to be maid of honour at the wedding of her best friend (and ex-flame) Michael (Dermot Mulroney) to Kimmy (Cameron Diaz). Trouble is, Julianne still loves him – and has just four days to win him back. The essence of sweetness, Kimmy just blunders through all the obstacles Julianne puts in her way. So Julianne calls on her gay editor George (Rupert Everett, stealing the show with a perfectly judged performance) for help in this delightful comedy.
