Simple but effective, but hilarious, this 1997 movie has important lessons to teach about life, love…and desserts.
Creme brulee or Jell-O? That’s the level of the metaphor in My Best Friend’s Wedding. In other words, “annoyingly perfect” Kimmy (Cameron Diaz) – one of those people who never, ever on their clothes – or supposedly far-from-perfect Julianne (Julia Roberts), an emotionally unavailable food critic. The choice is for Michael (Dermot Mulroney) to make, and it takes the of a fair few for the to make his decision.
The set-up is very simple, yet extremely effective. Julianne is difficult and selfish – that is, until Michael, a long-time friend and former lover, leaves a mysterious message on her voicemail.
