Product Description

Ani DiFranco steals the show with her ace rendition of Dusty Springfield's "Wishin' and Hopin'." But DiFranco was playing the lyrics for smirks, which made it hard to wrap yourself up in the performance. Elsewhere, you get Mary-Chapin Carpenter covering "I'll Never Fall in Love Again," a version of "What the World Needs Now Is Love" by Jackie DeShannon; Diana King (of "Stir It Up" fame) doing a lite-reggae version of "I Say a Little Prayer," and a Tony Bennett moment. Burt Bacharach's songs are all over this CD, which is good. But aside from DiFranco and Bennett, many of the artists turned loose to sing them could've been better deployed. Overall, rather slight. --Gavin McNett

I only noticed this cd after one of my friends told me about it, but I'm glad that she did, because this cd is definitely worth it. My personal favorite song on the cd is "Say A Little Prayer For You", the cast version. Though it isn't much like the movie version (which was a lot better, I think due to the way it was performed), its a great song, and even funnier to listen to with this version. The reggae version is pretty good too. I also enjoyed "Wishin and Hoping", which is just a nice song. However, I think to understand what the meaning of the songs are (to this soundtrack), you need to see the movie, so I recommend that you see the movie, and then take the time to appreciate the soundtrack.

I have to agree with the review written by a fan from Olympia, WA: the songs on the soundtrack were not the same versions as in the movie, and this was a disappointment. The cast version of "I Say A Little Prayer" was nothing like the great performance in the film, and Diana King's version of the same song had a reggae flavor; it was fine, but not the version of the song that I had been hoping for. I still enjoy the CD, but it would have been much better if the actual songs from the movie had been included.

This album I got for one reason, well really two reasons but the one most important reason was because at the end of My Best Friend's Wedding, one of Julia Robert's best films in my opinion, I heard Amanda Marshall's song I'll Be Okay and I was blown away. I loved the song, it was so powerful and yet so honest.

That song was enough to buy this album alone for me but I also bought it because of Jann Arden's song You Don't Know Me, which was to me the second best song on here and very beautiful. Amanda Marshall and Jann Arden to me are the stars on this album, but good runners up are:

- Ani DiFranco's cute song Wishing and Hoping

- And the very lovely song by Nicky Holland I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself,

- Diana King sings a good song I Say A Little Prayer

- And the Exciters have a very strong and fast song that's fun to hear,

- And so is the fun song by Jimmy Soul If You Wanna Be Happy.

- Sophie Zelmani has a good song on here called Always You. I found myself liking this song.

So overall I think this album is very good, but the two songs that stand out the most, and that I listen to the most, are Amanda Marshall and Jann Arden's two songs and the whole reason I bought the soundtrack. I recommend the c.d. definitely. It has cute, sometimes funny, and also very touching songs on here. One of the best sountracks put out.

Tony Bennett's "The Way You Look Tonight" is WONDERFUL. Makes my heart go pitter-patter!

Such great music!! Nice that it includes some of the songs by the actors, many soundtracks miss those. Notably missing, however, is my personal favorite -- Dermot Mulroney singing The Way You Look Tonight. Now that would make it complete!!

When I saw this movie, I was disappointed. I thought it was ridiculous... but as I watched the movie, I felt that the soundtrack would be great to have - and I was right! It is fun, with a nicely diverse collection of songs. I recommend this soundtrack to those who like variety.
Ani DiFranco very cutely sings "Wishin' and Hopin'. 'You Don't Know Me' is sweetly, sadly and beautifully sung by Jann Arden. The Exciters deliver 'Tell Him' in a peppy, strong manner. Nicky Holland enables us to feel Julia Robert's character's loneliness when she sings 'I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself.' 'The Way You Look Tonight' has always been one of my favorite love songs. It is so dreamy and sweet!
Mary Chapin Carpenter excellently and magically brings us 'I'll Never Fall In Love Again.' She is a gutsy girl to sing a Karen Carpenter song! You go girl!
I do not know who Sophie Zelmani or Amanda Marshall are, but they did very nicely on 'Always You' and 'I'll Be Okay', respectively. Also, James Newton Howard's 'Suite From My Best Friend's Wedding' is wonderfully done.
This is a splendid album. Go ahead ... order it. Go on!

This is one of my favorite romantic comedies and Julia Roberts' best performance in a rom/com. It is not what I would call a chick flick as I believe this film appeals equally to both men and women. It has much to recommend it but as I sort through the strengths of the film, including the story, the performances and the direction, I keep going back to the sound track as the biggest highlight. There are several Burt Bacharach/Hal David songs sprinkled throughout, "Wishin' and Hopin'", "I'll Never Fall in Love Again", "I say a Little Prayer (for You)" and others. The wedding party version of "I Say a Little Prayer" is the absolute highlight of the film musically and comically...and is one of the funniest scenes on film! In addition to a fine comic performance by Roberts, also look for superb performances from Cameron Diaz, Dermot Mulroney; and the best performance in the movie, by Rupert Everett....who got an Oscar nomination as a reward. The secondary support performances are also excellent, including Rachel Griffiths and Carrie Preston who play profane sisters; and Paul Giamatti in a small, but important role as a hotel bellman. In addition to the Bacharach/David songs, listen for the Jerome Kern/Dorothy Fields standard, "The Way You Look Tonight" first sung by Fred Astaire to Ginger Rogers in the movie, "Swing Time"...."Someday, when I'm awfully low, when the world is cold; I will feel aglow just thinking of you, the way you look tonight." Nominated for AFI's "Top 100 Laughs" this film carries my highest recommendation.
