A chick flick. Definitely. I think I can honestly say how I am not the hugest of fans of chick-flicks. The number #1 “chick flick” I enjoy is Sleepless in Seattle, but we can save that for another day. But if you enjoy such flicks, then you will definitely fall madly in love with this one.
Now, Julia Roberts is a fantastic actress, and she gets the role of lovely, adorable, and cute across the screen. And very well in Runaway Bride. The story is clever, endearing at times. Cute, most of the movie, I’d say. The women can schmooze over Gere and laugh with Roberts and fall in love with the characters. It has a very good supporting cast, by the way; for a film like this.
(This is a very very short review by the way, perhaps unclear at points)
What do I give this? Oh, a high 3 stars out of 7? It is an overall cute movie, and every has a cute spot for movies here and there. Everyone can get into a Julia Roberts, adorable, romantic comedy mood occasionally.
So if you are a fan of Roberts, Gere, Marshall, romantic comedies, movies you can laugh at, you may want to check this one out. I enjoyed it.
