Chick Flick Friday! - "My Best Friend's Wedding"

Okay, so I'm not a huge Julia Roberts fan but this was a good one. "My Best Friend's Wedding" stars Julia Roberts as Julianne Potter whose best friend, Michael, is getting married. The problem is that they had made a pact that if neither of them were married by a certain age, they'd marry each other. So now, in the week leading up to the big day, Julianne does everything possible to break up Michael's wedding.

There is a scene with Rupert Everett as George (a close friend of Julia
nne's) as he comes for the weekend as Julianne's date. Michael had no idea that the two were dating so he starts acting funky but George just goes over-the-top in proving his "love" for Julianne. Including a shrieking with excitement upon meeting Michael's fiance (played by the perky Cameron Diaz) and then encouraging the entire wedding party to sing along with him in a seafood restaurant to Dionne Warwicks "I Say a Little Prayer for You". TOTALLY hysterical!

Everything works out in the end - as it should in all good movies. But for those of you gals out there whose best friend was a guy (as was mine back in the day), you will totally be able to relate to this movie.
